Schools in Gravesham have been given the stamp of approval for their dedication to green travel.

Representatives from Cecil Road Primary School, Shears Green Infants, Riverview Infants and St Botolph’s Primary School were presented with Green Travel Mark Awards to celebrate their commitment to eco-friendly initiatives that combat childhood obesity.

In Dartford,  Langafel CE Primary, Gateway Primary, Stone St Mary’s CE Primary, Joydens Wood Juniors, Holy Trinity CE Primary and Lawn Primary were presented with Green Travel Mark Awards.

The schools are signed up to KM Walk to School schemes, which include Walk on Wednesday (WOW) and Active Bug, and encourage families to ditch the car and use active means to get to school instead.
