Scoot to School 2023

We had a great response to our Scoot to School initiative today. In fact, we had two packed bike shelters- poor Mr. Vincent, our parking attendant, had a tough job this morning helping everyone find a spot! Well done to our Green Schools team for organising such a successful initiative!
