BIKES ARE BEST SAY PUPILS

The results of the Churchill School travel survey shows that a large number of pupils want to cycle to school.


And headteacher Jennie Carter is keen to encourage them to make the journey by bicycle or on foot.

In this week's newsletter she tells parents: "I think it may be time to lobby councillors to provide cycle lanes in time for warmer weather. We might also think about asking the Community Warden to talk about Walking Buses.

"There is also an idea called, Park and Stride, whereby parents drop off at somewhere like the Community Centre and a Walking bus leaves from there. It would save all the congestion at the gate.
