Deputy Mayor, Councillor Schrinner, spoke about how our AST program is changing culture in participating schools and contributing to the health and well-being of students, as well as creating cleaner environments around schools.
Posters with key active travel statistics and achievements for each AST school were on display at the event. The posters not only provided great talking points and plenty of inspiration for guests at the awards, but will act as a lasting reminder of active travel successes in 2017. Posters are now on display at particpating schools.
