Aids to help walk to school.

CHILDREN from a Guisborough school have been given a high visibility wristband as part of Walk to School Month.

Homebuilder Taylor Wimpey has donated 100 wristbands to St Paulinus Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy to use during the darker autumn/ winter months.

Simon Geaves, headteacher at St Paulinus Primary, said: "We encourage the children to walk to school to promote a healthier lifestyle and to reduce traffic outside the school."

Walk to School Month, which takes place every October, is in aid of promoting healthier lifestyles as well as to reduce the number of vehicles on the roads each day.

It is an annual nationwide campaign that promotes the benefits of walking to school.

Debbie Whittingham, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, says: "We hope our contribution will help inspire families to swap the car for a safe walk to school instead."
