Park and Stride solves school's traffic problems
PARENTS have launched an initiative aimed at combating parking and traffic problems outside a primary school in Stapleton.
Rather than dropping their children outside the gates of Begbrook Primary Academy, parents are being urged to park their cars in a car park a few hundred yards from the school and walk the remainder of the journey.
The initiative, called Park and Stride, has been organised by parents belonging to the school's Travel Safe Group and was launched yesterday.
The group's aims are supported by sustainable transport charity Sustrans and the Begbrook and Stapleton Social Club, which has offered the free use of its large car park in Frenchay Park Road to parents.

The official launch was attended by Bristol mayor George Ferguson.
Jessica Smith, of the travel group, said the launch had been a big success. She said: "We've had fantastic support from the school and Sustrans, namely Ian Tsang. Without their help we couldn't have done it.
"We've also been helped by the local community, specifically the Begbrook and Stapleton Social Club and the local shop McColls."
