Bugle crossing campaign is gathering pace
AN END could be in sight for parents campaigning for a safe pedestrian crossing on Bugle's busiest road.
Marcus Heartford and mother of four Miranda Knight, who both live in Bugle, spearheaded the pedestrian crossing campaign.
The father of two, and Mrs Knight, are calling for a four-way pedestrian crossing and calming measures to be installed at the five-way crossing, which includes the A391.
They launched the petition after a schoolboy was knocked off his scooter at the spot last month and have decided to call on Cornwall Council to take action before someone is killed.

Hundreds of people from the village have already signed a petition in support of their call. Cornwall councillor Jackie Bull is also backing their plea.
Yesterday, the trio were expected to meet the authority's Highways department to discuss the options available.
Mr Heartford said: "I have not met a single person who doesn't want something to be done. It feels like the whole village is behind this."
Copies of the petition are at the school, the Spar shop, hairdressers Karen Kuts, Bugle Working Men's Club, Manfoon Chinese takeaway and the Bugle Inn, or can be signed online at www.freepetition.co.uk/cornwall/petition/bugletrafficactiongroup
