Clean Air for Henley’s No Idling campaign has now visited all 6 primary schools in Henley and had a most enthusiastic reception from pupils and staff. Each day has consisted of a discussion at the school assembly, a Snakes and Ladders game, crosswords and the handing out of car stickers and pamphlets to parents at the school gates.
Our first objective is to get drivers to switch off their car engines when parked to avoid wasting fuel which causes pollution. However, we also cover the benefits of walking and scootering to school, planting bushes and trees, using the low emission town bus instead of taking the car into town, and of using electric cars in our overall goal to reduce the high numbers of inhalers being used by children in our schools. The centre of Henley has failed to meet air quality standards for over 10 years. It needs all your help to make it better.
