Pupils from Higham Ferrers Junior School have got some new kit for International Walk to School Month.

Homebuilder David Wilson Homes has teamed up with the school, which is close to its Lancaster Gardens development, with pupils being encouraged to walk to school during October.

Jackie Day, sales director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “This year we’ve decided to donate hi-visibility armbands to the youngest pupils at Higham Ferrers Junior School to help them stay safe and be seen as they walk to and from school.”
