Healthy Lifestyles - Walking Bus

Dear Parents/Carers

As part of our work on healthy lifestyles and keeping active, we are considering setting up a Walking Bus around Hollinswood.

Children will walk to school as a group using an agreed risk assessed route under the supervision of at least two adults. The Walking Bus will have a set timetable and children can join the Walking Bus at designated stops.

How often the Walking Bus runs will be dependent upon the level of interest shown by parents.

The Walking Bus scheme would operate on a rota system of volunteers ( additional checks needed). If anyone would be interested in this role, please complete the attached questionnaire, Link below

Full training of volunteers will be provided by the Councils Road Safety Team.

I am trying to obtain whether a ‘Walking Bus’ would benefit the community and provide opportunities to support an active lifestyle for our children.

Kind Regards,

Alison Needle.
