Does your child go to school in Westminster? Are you worried about air pollution and road danger on the way to school, or at the school gates? If you are, come and talk healthy streets for children with us on Wednesday 11 December.
Streets with too much motorised traffic affect kids more than most:
- Air pollution stunts growing lungs
- Streets that are unsafe for walking or cycling stop kids from getting enough exercise or travelling independently
- Cars spell danger at the school gates.
But there are answers…
- ‘School streets’ are emerging all over London where traffic is restricted at school run hours
- ‘Low traffic neighbourhoods’ stop rat running through residential neighbourhoods so it’s safe for all ages to walk, cycle and play
- A safe, direct network of walking and cycling routes would give parents an alternative to driving the school run.
What are your ideas to make our streets healthier for children, and how can we work together to achieve them in Westminster?
Doors open at 9.30am and we’ll be finished by 11.30. Children are welcome and we’ll have some toys, biscuits and drinks.
How to get there:
Warwick Hall is at 300 Harrow Road, London W2 5HG. The nearest tube stations are Royal Oak and Westbourne Park, or take the number 18 or 36 bus.
