Walking and cycling to School - do you really need the car?
While not practical for everyone, children who walk, cycle or scoot to school are more alert and attentive when they get there than those who travel by car and the walk is good exercise for both you and them.
Walking from home to school and back is a great opportunity for children to learn the necessary skills to stay safe when they are older and go out and about on their own.
It's also free! Fuel isn't getting any cheaper and the savings can add up over time.
If your children ride a bike or scooter, please be sure they wear a properly fitted helmet, the bike or scooter is the right size for them and is in road worthy condition.
