A blind father and mother claim they are “taking their own lives” every day on the school track.

Greg and Allisha Jones worry every day about the “nightmare journey” of taking their daughter to school.

The couple from Walton, Liverpool, were registered blind and had to navigate a busy intersection to get to St Francis de Sales Catholic Secondary School.

Mrs. Jones is completely blind and relies on a cane while her husband and daughter are both partially blind and cannot help her see.

“We are both blind and trying to pick up our daughter is a nightmare,” Mr. Echoes of Liverpool.

“It’s an absolute joke to not have something there.”

The family’s journey gets tough when schools reopen after Covid closes and a favorite man or woman is no more.

Mr Jones said: “The school has been working hard to find a replacement since the crossing assistant left and approached the council with a number of suggestions such as crossing the zebra crossing, installing a roundabout and getting a new assistant. .

The husband said that sending his daughter to school was one of the tasks that Mrs. Jones was still able to do.

But she now relies on a cane to help find her way but struggles with no crosswalk aids after losing her vision completely.

He said: “It’s so stressful for her now, she goes to work every day and doesn’t see anything.

“This is something she was able to do with our daughter, now it is a nightmare because [our daughter] She’s also partially nearsighted so she can’t help her see.

“They are taking their own lives every time they cross the fork.







The school approached the council with a number of proposals

“It’s unbelievable that something hasn’t been put in place, there must definitely be something that can be done.”

Mr Jones praised the leadership at St Francis de Sales for their support and the implementation of a no-parking zone around the school.

A spokesman for Liverpool Council said the situation was being monitored and authorities were continuing to speak with school representatives.
