Winning for walking at our green awards
Green travel supporters across the district have been honoured at the KM Walk to School Awards.
School pupils and staff who have showcased active commitments to green travel initiatives were commended at the ceremony staged at Rowhill Grange Hotel, Wilmington, earlier this month.
A total of 20 awards were accepted at the event, with an Ashford borough school earning a big win.
John Mayne CEP School in Biddenden was named Top WOW School and Ashford Borough Council civil enforcement officer supervisor Catherine Darlington was on-hand to present the award.
The awards are organised by the KM Charity Team who provide green travel services including WOW (Walk on Wednesday), Walking Bus, Green Footsteps and Active Bug to over 250 schools across the region.
Simon Dolby, chief executive of the charity, said: “These awards provide the opportunity to celebrate the dedication and commitment of pupils, parents and staff to our green travel initiatives, and hopefully inspire other schools across the region to follow in their footsteps.”
