Car boot for car park at Bugthorpe School

Friends of Bugthorpe School will hold a car boot sale to raise funds for a much-needed car park improvement.

As pupil numbers rise, car parking on the road alongside the school is becoming increasingly crowded, especially at peak times.

Forseeing further growth in numbers and traffic to the school, Halifax estates have agreed to lease some land adjacent to the school to serve as a car park.

Headteacher Angela Ekers said: “Our child, staff and parent safety is paramount, and bringing cars off the road into a designated parking area is good news for the school and the local community alike.”

The car boot sale will be held on Saturday 8 June between 9am and 11am. To book a space or for more information please contact the school on 01759 368247 or email bugthorpe@eastriding.gov.uk. Spaces need to be booked on or before the 24th May.
