The Walking School Bus

No Wheels Needed on Our Bus!   

Making it safe to travel and play in the community

Springhall Community Resource Group, supported by Healthy n Happy, have led on community consultation and initiatives to improve community safety especially around the two primary schools in the local area.

The main aims of the project are:

  • To ensure children have a safe journey to and from school

  • To encourage and increase active travel

  • To develop a campaign around safe travel for school children

  • Improve local health and wellbeing

 

By delivering a successful pilot project, they were able to secure Our Place funding which is resourcing a short term project worker to help create a sustainable volunteer-led Walking School Bus initiative.

If you want to know more about the Walking School Bus, and get involved, contact Gale Inglis on 07914 087551.

Check out the gallery below to see how the initiative is progressing.
