Committee Members show support for Active School Travel Programme
The Committee for Regional Development visited Ballycraigy Primary School in Antrim on Wednesday 14th January 2015. Members received a presentation from Sustrans on the Active School Travel Programme and took the opportunity to meet with pupils involved in the Programme.
Chairperson of the Committee, Trevor Clarke MLA welcomed the opportunity to show support for the Programme: “It was very helpful to come to Ballycraigy Primary today and actually see and hear from the children how they have benefited from the programme. It is encouraging but not surprising that more children are walking and cycling to school because once people see the benefits of the programme, common sense prevails. For that reason the Committee are recommending the DRD ring-fence the budget for the Active School Travel Programme.”
Pictured at the meeting are: (l-r) Alex Easton MLA, Ross Hussey MLA, Trevor Clarke MLA (Chairperson of the Committee), Sean Lynch MLA (Deputy Chairperson), Chris Lyttle MLA and Stephen Moutray MLA.
