Walking Bus Launch
Walking Bus Routes relaunched at Marlow C of E Infant School this week as part of our Big Walk and Wheel event
Thank you to all of you who have taken part in the walking buses this week. We have launched three routes and these have all run on various days across the week.
What is a Walking Bus?
A walking bus allows children to walk in an organised group along a set route with registered parent volunteers looking after them. This means parents don’t need to walk all the way with their own children every day, but the children can still get the benefits of walking all the time. More detail about walking buses can be found at https://brightkidz.co.uk/initiatives.walking-to-school/formal-walking-bus/
All the children and adults have had a lot of fun on their walks into school. Our plan is to continue with all three routes running once or twice a week, and we would love to add more people to the bus. I f you would like to sign up please do so here https://forms.gle/1KG41AyX7msEgV2R8
If you live away from the current routes please sign up and if we get enough interest in a particular area then we may be able to change or add routes.
Many thanks the travel plan committee.
