Hempnall Primary School pupils take part in ‘park and stride’ event

Pupils at Hempnall Primary School took part in a 'park 'n' stride' in a bid to encourage more children and parents to walk to school.

On June 20, students got involved in the Brake Giant Walking Bus 2012 record attempt.

The whole school walked in a large crocodile to the car park at The Queen's Head where teachers and governors would like parents who have to travel by car to park.

The Street, opposite the school, becomes very congested and dangerous at the start and end of the school day, said Ian Small, deputy headteacher.

'The children were sponsored to raise money for 'Brake' who will use it to help with road safety education and to help families who are suffering in the aftermath of road accidents. So far the local community has generously raised nearly �500,' he said.
