Have your say

Alverstoke Juniors was due to hold a mass walk-to-school event today to help reduce the number of cars outside the school gates.

The walk from 8.15am was to promote the school’s Park-and-Stride scheme. The theme was Gosport and its links to the Royal Navy and pupils were encouraged to wear or bring something related to this theme, and were also going to receive stickers for doing the walk.

Children were to be accompanied by the Hampshire County Council’s school journey mascot, Basil Bear and theatre group Histrionics, which was then going to put on an assembly on the walk-to-school theme.
