Is your school taking part in the latest Harrogate Walk to School Day this Friday?

Since it was first launched nearly three years ago, a total of 55 primary and secondary schools have taken part in the widely-supported Harrogate District Walk to School Day.

This Friday’s event will see Harry Gator from Harrogate Town FC showing the club’s support by joining pupils at Hookstone Chase Primary Schoo l on their walk to school.

The idea is that, instead of making their usual car journey to school, children, teachers and parents are encouraged to walk, cycle, use public transport or use the 'park and stride' option and walk the last mile to school.

Organisers Zero Carbon Harrogate see this as a step towards reducing traffic congestion in Harrogate and helping cut the town’s carbon emissions.
