Abbey Primary School launch their 5 Minute Walking Zone


Despite the rain, more than 100 people took part in the Let's Walk Together launch event for the Walking Zone.

Over the last few weeks the A*STARS Sheriffs have helped to create a Walking Zone by measuring the distance and number of steps from the school gate, the time taken to walk certain routes, and they have also identified suitable lampposts where stickers can be displayed to remind parents and children to park outside the Zone and walk the rest of the journey to school.

Abbey Primary is the first school in Walsall to develop a Walking Zone and we're hoping that many more will follow their lead.
