Walk to school week record!

Well done to the five infants schools and three junior schools in our partnership who took part in Walk to School week, recording an impressive 3310 miles - up from 2500 last year. That's the equivalent of walking from London to Ottawa apparently! 
We know that a little help and encouragement is sometimes needed to enable everyone to leave the car at home more often and keep the area around schools clear of excessive motor traffic. We appreciate the friendly lollipop people based at busy junctions in our area, and we welcome Walk to School week as an annual push from local schools and families to build good habits for the rest of the year.
