A drive to get more people out of their cars on the school-run continues to pick up pace.

Abbeyfields First School is on a mission to reduce congestion around its gates and encourage more families to walk, scoot or cycle.

Initiatives have included erecting a large banner, organising a welly walk, encouraging those living closest to the school to walk and those coming from further away to ‘park and stride’, covering the last bit of their journey on foot.
