A ROYSTON school has received a grant of more than �4,000 to promote sustainable travelling among its pupils.
Studlands Rise First School will receive �4,375 from the government after its plan to use funds to buy improved lighting, a parent waiting shelter or to widen footpaths was approved by the Department for Transport.
Another 29 schools in Hertfordshire have received government grants totaling more than �170,000.
"The county council's School Travel Plan team's successful promotion of the grants among local schools means that 434 of the 525 schools in Hertfordshire now have approved travel plans and 4,000 more pupils are now walking to school as a result of the initiative," said Stuart Pile, Hertfordshire County Council's member for highways and transport.
