Walking Bus Video Project with Bath and North East Somerset Council

“How do you start a walking bus?” is a question we are often asked. Setting up what is effectively an organised walking group is a great way to encourage more walking to school. If you’ve seen groups of children heading for school decked out in high vis jackets, you’ve probably seen a walking bus.

For years we have been providing information about walking bus schemes… Brightkidz actually started after we set up a walking bus at our own local school and realised there was a need for more resources to support them (which is why we started with selling high vis jackets).

However, we know there is a need for some really engaging resources to not only give information about walking buses but to inspire and encourage others to join in or set up their own. Therefore we were delighted to be approached by Bath and North East Somerset Council to collaborate with them on a project to develop a fun and informative professionally produced walking bus video and toolkit.

So where is it? I’m afraid you need to wait a little while longer as it is in the final stages of production. But keep an eye out as we are sure you will find it a great free resource for your school and you will be able to download it from Brightkidz website.

To be sure you hear when it is ready, sign up to our Bright News enewsletter as we will publicise the launch there.
