Winter Jackets | School Crossing Patrol

It’s hard to believe but Autumn and Winter are fast approaching. Soon we’ll all be wrapping up warm to head out into the cold. For people who work outside, the weather can make a big impact on their days, and according to the NHS website, their health, too. This means that it’s time to be thinking about warm winter jackets for your patrols.Standard stop jacket

Winter Jackets: Make the Right Choice

 

Our exclusive STOP range of winter jackets, both standard and superior, are the best choice when it comes to keeping your School Crossing Patrols warm and dry in the typical harsh British weather. Added details of higher collars for wind protection, enhanced velcro cuffs to lock in the warmth and longer length backtails for protection from splashes are just some of the highlights from a long list of added features enhancing our jackets. These additional features will ensure that your staff are comfortable and protected from the elements.

Leicestershire Council SCP Provides 42 Years Service

School Crossing Patrols play a vital role in school children’s safety. Helping children to navigate roads, they ensure that they are free from danger on their way into school. At Keltic we are really appreciative of the fantastic job that SCP’s do, and we think that it’s only right that we should, now and again, give something back. Sandy Flamson from Whitwick in Leicestershire has been a patrol for an amazing forty-two years. We therefore decided to present her with a prize for being the longest serving patrol in her region.

Sandy’s Prize

 

Forty-two years of service is commendable in any profession, but for one that helps the community so much, it’s really amazing. We were therefore delighted to travel to Leicester and present Sandy with a badge and champagne for her brilliant work. We also thought it right to give some cupcakes and gingerbread men to her fellow patrols!

Why Sandy Loves Being an SCP

 

From speaking to Sandy, it was clear that this was somebody who loves their job. When we asked her why, Sandy said the following:

“I love my job because I’m helping children to be safe and I feel like I’m making a worthwhile contribution to the community. I enjoy being out in the fresh air, meeting new people and watching the children grow up. In some cases I’m now crossing their children!”

Wholly appreciated by children, parents and teachers alike Sandy continues to contribute to the community and do a fantastic job as a SCP. Sandy is a lovely lady and we were thrilled to be a part of her day!

How Long Have your School Crossing Patrols Been Serving?

Out in every weather, on their feet all day long, School Crossing Patrols do a great job. And an important one, too. They keep our children out of harms way on the roads, and help parents rest easy as their children walk to and from school. Valuing SPC’s very highly, we recently decide to launch a competition. We want to find the UK’s longest serving patrols.
