THE NORTH Shropshire MP has pledged to help Weston Rhyn Primary School that faces with traffic and speeding problems.

On a tour of Weston Rhyn Primary School, Helen Morgan MP spoke to Headteacher Tracey Derham whilst meeting pupils.

Weston Rhyn parish councillor James Wallace, a school governor, was also present to detail the problems on Station Road and ask for support in their ongoing campaign for safer roads.

Ms Morgan has pledged to support Weston Rhyn parents, pupils in teachers in their call for improvements to safety on Station Road, especially when A5 closures lead to diversions through the village.


Helen Morgan, MP for North Shropshire, said: “Road safety is one of the number one issues that comes up on the doorstep across rural North Shropshire.

“The recent School Streets scheme has been very positive, with signs now going up in four market towns, but we still need action in the countryside.

“As well as Weston Rhyn, schools like Lower Heath in Prees and Myddle could do with safety improvements – and there are no doubt further examples across the county.”

She added: “Thank you again to the school for having me.

“It is always useful to hear first-hand about the challenges and opportunities people on the frontline are facing, both in our education system and across our rural communities.”
