Making South Glos "Travel to School" Better

The right kind of transport to school is really important for many parents.  South Gloucestershire Council are changing how travel to school is run so it was really useful to meet Adam Silcock, Transport Review Officer and Sue Halley, Travel Trainer at our Yate Parent Support Group this month.  If you missed it, you can look over the notes from the meeting or get a good idea about the changes from the Powerpoint. There are links for how to contribute your views too.
