Hi all,

My subject heading says it all! Can anyone tell me the roads mentioned in the letter that we should not park on.

Thank you
:D

Don't park in Avebury Rd, Winterbourne Avenue or Sandy Bury. At the open day last Saturday they put cones out, so guess they may do this again tomorrow to stop people parking.

I can't wait until its all over, less than 24 hrs for us as we have the first session.

Good luck to everyone doing the Newstead Test tomorrow.

Saw few parking ticket fines...not good news for those who received it :(

Traffic Wardens were present almost all day along...

To be fair to the traffic wardens...
there were Council signs attached to lampposts which had been there from a few weeks before including for the open day, so they gave notice.
There were cones... many drivers seemed to think that meant you could park between or even on the cones.

I did not see much thought from those drivers for the safety of others.

All in all seems that the open days and 11+ in general are nice little earners for the councils concerned. Wherever there is an open day at a school there are traffic wardens.

Well to me it seemed some didn't really care and parked where they know they shouldn't, maybe a 60 pound fine wasn't that big deal to some!

How did your daughters find the test?

Very true, and no thought for local residents either.
Parking was a nightmare on that day though!

We had the 8.15/8.30 arrival time, but arrived at 7.30 as I was so worried about being late - the local residents were already up and glaring from their front gardens. It must drive them mad. But after the huge expense of 11+ prep, perhaps £60 isn't much - we avoided it fortunately. So desperate to have it over and done with we would have helicoptered her in! DD said it was much easier than Kent or Bexley, although she was gently told off for writing her workings out on the question paper which I suspect they re-use. I think they did tell her but she forgot! :roll: I didn't know and she's been doing this for her practise papers - useful advice for next years takers? No idea how she did though... agony waiting isn't it? :wink:
