Get ready for Walk to School Week

Some 30 schools across Windsor and Maidenhead are taking part in this year’s Walk to School Week, which starts on Monday 20 May and runs until the Friday 24 May.

Parents are encouraged to ditch their cars for the whole week, or even for just one or two days, and swap to walking, scootering, cycling, or wheeling. If you need to travel some distance to your school, have you considered parking further away and striding the final part?

Not only is the exercise great for your physical and mental wellbeing whatever your age, but it also means fewer cars so less pollution and congestion. And it gives you the chance to spend time with family and friends or perhaps make new pals on route.

And the chances are you’ll also appreciate nature and notice things in your community that you might not have if you were speeding past in a car.
