kids take to the streets: Children across Bucks are invited to take to the streets next month as part of International Walk To School Month, an awareness-raising month held every October around the world to promote walking to school.

Over the past two decades, the number of children who walk to school nationally has dropped from 62 per cent to 48 per cent, with an enormous 43 per cent being driven to school in cars, despite the majority of primary school pupils living within a 20-minute walk of their school.
