It’s Jurassic Path at Potters Bar school

STUDENTS followed in the substantial footprints of a very historic guest as they tried out a new school pathway for the first time.

Cranborne Primary School, in Laurel Fields, Potters Bar, officially opened its new alternative access path to the school gates during a ribbon cutting ceremony before the end of term.

The path will provide an alternative access to the school from Elm Court car park, reducing congestion at the school entrance on Laurel Fields, ensuring better safety for pupils when they return in September.

Hertfordshire County Council’s mascot Buster the Dinosaur was the guest of honour at the opening, which was also attended by representatives from Herts Highways and Elm Court Youth and Community Centre.

Buster was a last-minute substitute for Arsenal star Henri Lansbury, who was on a pre-season tour of Malaysia with his club at the time.

“The guest of honour was Buster the Dinosaur, the Hertfordshire County Council mascot who made time in his busy schedule to declare the path open by cutting a ribbon,” said school pupils Brooke and Disha.
