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.
