Davidsons supports Walk to School Week in Blackfordby

Davidsons Homes encouraged families in Blackfordby to leave their cars at home when doing the school run.

The developer, which is building at its Spires View development in the village, donated 98 high visibility bags to Blackfordby St Margaret’s C of E Primary School for National Walk to School Week, which ran from Monday 20th to Friday 24th May.

Established by UK charity Living Streets, the annual nationwide initiative is aimed at encouraging pupils to get more active, while also reducing congestion and pollution.

Sue Savage, Executive Headteacher at Blackfordby St Margaret’s C of E Primary School, said: “We were very happy when Davidsons Homes got in touch to ask if it could make this donation to our pupils as part of Walk to School Week.

“There are so many benefits in choosing to walk to school rather than drive, and we are extremely passionate about promoting this message to our pupils in a fun and interactive way.

“We’re very grateful to Davidsons for its donation of the high visibility bags, which will help the children to stay safe when they are walking to and from school.”

Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: “It is very important for us to give back to the Blackfordby community – and we felt the message behind ‘Walk to School Week’ is a great one to promote particularly for children living in this lovely local village setting.  It is a real pleasure to work with Blackfordby St Margaret’s C of E Primary School on this worthwhile project and we hope our support for Walk to School Week will encourage as many children as possible to take part.”
