Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.”
