Pupils step out in ‘walk to school' scheme

Pupils, staff, parents and grandparents walked to Narberth CP School today (Thursday) as part of a Safe Routes in Communities initiative.

The 80-strong group walked from the Old School on Moorfield road to Landsker Stores, where they met another group of children before completing the final leg of their walk to school.   

The walk was organised by Narberth CP School and Pembrokeshire County Council, and supported by PCSO David Henry and PC Alison Foley.

The group was joined by the Mayor of Narberth, Elizabeth Rogers, and representatives of the Town Council.

Headteacher Mrs Edna Davies said: "We have had a good turn out today and the children have really enjoyed it.  

"Walking to school not only improves the children's health but also benefits the environment and reduces traffic congestion around the town."

The primary school, along with the local community, have been involved in an initiative to produce a bid for Safe Routes in Communities funding from the Welsh Government, looking at ways to reduce car travel in the town.

A successful bid will result in improved footways and new routes around the town making it safer for walking and cycling
