Ditch the car and turn the school run into a walk.
That’s the message from county council officials at the start of Walk to School Week.
It’s a national campaign by Living Streets, which aims to encourage people to choose walking as an alternative to using their car in an attempt to lower carbon emissions and live a greener, healthier lifestyle.
Paula Colburn, from the county council, said: “For many parents, the school run has become a daily chore, something that needs to be done twice a day as quickly as possible. But it needn’t be that way – the school run can be fun. It can be a time to enjoy with your children, talking about their day and exploring your surroundings, whilst also helping to reduce congestion, improve safety around the school and boost your fitness levels.”
