Kerry McCarthy Labour MP for Bristol East
I had the pleasure of joining children from Minerva Primary Academy School In Hillfields yesterday morning as part of Living Streets ‘Walk to School Week’. It was a little bit wet & windy so well done to all the families and staff that came along – appropriate that this year’s theme was Walking Superpowers!
This is a great way of encouraging people to travel sustainably and get some exercise done early in the day, in a safe and enjoyable way. We were joined by Strider and both the Hillfields Councillors Craig Cheney and Ellie King Craig and Ellie for Hillfields. (Strider is the one in red). Walking to school means less congestion, less pollution, and healthier children. I really hope this encourages others to get involved. I can’t wait for the next one!
