Active Travel, Active Play – The Field

These videos were created with children who took part in Active Travel to School Week 2014. They told us all about their favourite places to play outside and why it is special to them. This video was filmed in the open space behind prizewinner Violet’s Nan’s house along with family and friends from Filton Avenue Junior School, Bristol. Travelwest works in schools in partnership with Sustrans. For further information please see our websites. http://www.travelwest.info/schools http://www.sustrans.org.uk
