LIVING Streets’ Walk to School Week is over for another year and we’d like to thank everyone in Warrington who contributed to making it a massive success.

More than 1,500 pupils from more than 50 classrooms in Warrington joined in with pupils across the UK to enjoy the many benefits of walking to school.

Motor vehicles are the biggest source of air pollution and one in four cars on the road at peak times are on the school run.

More children walking to school means fewer vehicles on the road and improved air quality for everyone. Families in Warrington can know that they’ve helped be part of the solution this Walk to School Week by swapping four wheels for two feet.

Walking to school not only improves our air quality but is a great way for children to build more exercise into their daily lives, helping them to arrive to school healthier, happier and ready to learn.

Once again, a huge thank you and congratulations to everyone who took part in this year’s Walk to School Week.

We hope you’ve been inspired to walk to school all year-round.

JOE IRVIN Chief Executive Living Streets
