Your chance to sign up to hold lollipop
Serving lollipop men and women joined forces with councillors in a call for more people to take on the role.
Bath and North East Somerset Council cabinet member for transport councillor Caroline Roberts (Lib Dem, Newbridge) said: "The council's lollipop patrol service is one of most highly valued services to the public that we provide to help children, parents, and teachers to get to school safely.
"To make sure that the next 60 years of service are as successful as the previous 60, we need people to come forward and apply for the roles at the seven sites where there are vacancies."
Roles are available at Bathampton Primary, Chandag Junior School in Keynsham, Combe Down Primary, Midsomer Norton Primary, St Saviour's Infants in Larkhall, Whitchurch Primary and Widcombe Junior, with details at www.bathnes.gov.uk.

Long-serving lollipop man Terry Cross said: "Although the equipment used by lollipop patrols has changed, the service we provide remains the same. Safety comes first, but being able to perform your duties with a smile on your face and in a friendly manner is also vital. It is a rewarding role that I would encourage people to apply for."
