ASHTON Hayes primary school are being green – by using something yellow.
A transport service, using one of Cheshire West and Chester’s big yellow minibuses is aiming to help the environment. It has reduced the number of cars on the road at the busiest times of the day by up to 10 since the scheme began back in November.
Driven by the school’s headteacher and parent volunteers, the minibus travels through rural villages such as Manley, Mouldsworth, Tarvin and Barrow, to get children to and from school on time.
Headteacher Chris Priddey is delighted the school has had the opportunity to do their bit for the environment:
He said: “I am really pleased to be able to support parents with this minibus service, as well as having a positive impact on local traffic reduction and by being able to play our small part in carbon reduction.
“The community of Ashton Hayes is working together in a project to reduce its carbon impact using innovative technology, using a DECC grant. The school plays an integral part in this project, as well as raising environmental awareness with the children.”
