YOUNGSTERS hope to be record breakers after taking part in a walking bus attempt.

Edenham Primary School was backing road safety charity Brake’s annual giant walking bus record-breaking attempt.

The charity hopes this bid will encourage drivers to slow down.

The walking bus picked up about 100 children from the nearby village hall.

Youngsters then walked to school, once around the field and then into lessons.

The route was repeated in the afternoon.

Organiser and parent governor Christopher Martin was hoping the event would promote the school’s daily walking bus.

He said: “The children seemed to have a brilliant time.

“They enjoyed the walk and the weather was lovely.

“We were using it as a promotional thing to use the walking bus.”

Schools across the country took part in the giant walking bus attempt.

Youngsters will have to wait a few weeks to find out if they have broken the world record.

Schools have to send off information about their efforts.
