The safety of school children in Queens Park has been enhanced by the installation of a CCTV camera by two schools.
Queen’s Park Councillors Nesreen Akhtar and Mohammed Masud have used part of their Ward Fund to install the camera which covers the area by St Josephs & St Gregory’s Primary School and Westfield School.
The councillors say it will ensure the safety of children when they can return to school, and deter anti-social behaviour out of school hours.
Councillor Nesreen Akhtar said, “Councillor Masud and I are keen to use our Ward Fund for all kinds of projects in Queen’s Park, and were happy to help with this request.”
Councillor Mohammed Masud added, “If anyone has any other suggestions for improvements to the area, or local facilities or groups that could use part of our Ward Fund, then please do get in touch. Even though there is a lockdown, we’re still here to help everyone in our community.”
