“Every 20 minutes in the UK, a child is hurt or killed on foot, most on the way to or from school.
Nearly half of our children are now driven to school meaning more obesity and traffic danger.” (From the Brake website)
Wilberfoss took part in the walking bus event last year, and we were really happpy to do it again this year.
The idea behind the walking bus is to highlight how wonderful it would be to see more children regularly walking to school and how it’s vital for drivers to reduce their speeds in areas such as our village.
Walking to school is wonderful, taking traffic off the roads, easing congestion, reducing pollution and most importantly getting children used to walking and having independence.
Here are just a few of the pictures … many more at the school website – it’s on the School Events page.
