Walking is good for our health, an excellent way to socialise, and is a form of active travel - sustainable and carrying for the environment. 

Your legs and lungs will feel better after a short or long walk , and being outside and in amongst green spaces is excellent for our well being. 

The green spaces, countryside and agricultural land in Gloucestershire are stunning! 

Walking School Bus

walking bus

A walking school bus is a group of children who walk to school together with one or more adults as chaperones. The adults are often parents, teachers, or volunteers who walk a predetermined route, picking up children along the way and dropping them off at school. Walking school buses can be a fun and safe way for children to get to school, and they can also promote physical activity and a sense of community. Walking school buses can be organized by the school, community groups, or parents, and they can be scheduled to run on a regular basis or on an as-needed basis.
