MP backs Rokesly 'walk to school' campaign

Lynne Featherstone MP and Mr Croc joined forces at Rokesly Junior School in Hornsey to encourage local children to walk to school.

The local Liberal Democrat MP gave the scheme her full backing because of the huge benefits walking to school has in keeping children healthy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reinforcing the road safety message.

Lynne Featherstone MP commented:

“The kids here at Rokesly have been walking to school all week, and they have told me how much fun it’s been. It’s great to come and talk to the kids about road safety, with a little help from my friend Mr Croc.

“Learning road safety is one thing, but putting into practise is another. Encouraging groups to walk to school is a safe way of making exercise a part of everyday routine. A lifetime of healthy living starts literally with the first step.”
