Park and Stide

 

Monday 13th February saw the launch of the Talavera Park and Stride site. We are passionate about keeping children safe and that includes their journey to school. Thanks to Hampshire County Council they are allowing us to park free of charge between 8:30am – 9:15am and 3:00pm – 3:45pm at the High Street Carpark.

Basil the Bird led the procession along with the Mayor of Aldershot and with those parents who are utilising their new Parkwise sticker. They walked the route that the newly trained Junior Road Safety Officers had planned in the previous week.

Following the walk to school from the carpark, the Junior Road Safety Officers leafleted any cars still parking on Gun Hill on the double yellow lines. They promoted the scheme and encouraged them to apply to the school office for a Parkwise sticker. Basil went on to join the children for an assembly teaching him how to cross the road safely on Gun Hill.
