Hardwick Green pupils will be participating in the UKs biggest inter-school walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling active travel challenge. 

The Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel takes place 20-31 March, and it inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improve air quality in their neighbourhood and discover how these changes benefit their world.

The competition has been running since 2010 and sees schools compete on each day of the challenge to make the most journeys by walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling. 

Not only does the event help reduce pollution around the school gates but in 2019 it helped parents to save an estimated  £1.6million in petrol costs during the fortnight.
