Father's Story Week starts on 10 June
On Wednesday 12 June thousands of children will march for road safety from their school gates in the annual Giant Walking Bus. This event by the road safety charity, Brake, raises awareness of the dangers of traffic and how fun it is to walk. Whether or not your child's school is taking part, you can still get advice about road safety and how to keep your family safe (from baby car seats to your teenager learning to drive) from the Brake website.
