Dates for the diary! Active Travel deadlines and activity weeks

Dates for the diary! Active Travel deadlines and activity weeks

Active Travel is increasing in popularity in Chesterfield, as a number of schemes continue to be rolled out to to both primary and secondary schools. All primary and infant schools are offered Bikeability training, a scheme delivered by local cycle experts, Wheely Fun Wheels.  We also piloted the national Modeshift STARS at Westfield Infants and Brockwell Junior Schools. This scheme encourages schools to introduce programmes and initiatives to increase the number of staff and pupils who walk, cycle or scoot to school on a regular basis. Later this year we are also looking to introduce a Safer and Active Travel Ambassador Conference.
