‘One thing I’d change….’


We’ve been out and about this week talking to parents at Granton School and finding out the one thing that they’d like to change about the streets surrounding the school. There are lots of great ideas that could make the streets safer, including my personal favourite – installing a rollercoaster to get children into school in the morning. That’d certainly wake you up!

Our next events are:

  • At the Granton School Parents evening on Wednesday 2nd July from 16.00 – 18.00, discussing the project with parents and collecting contact details for those who want to be involved over the summer holidays.
  • An on street meeting for residents of Larbert, Granton, Meadfoot and Farmhouse Roads on Wednesday 9th July from 17.00 – 19.00, outside the school on Larbert Road, for anyone interested in getting involved in the project and upcoming activities.

Hope to see you there.



DIY Streets Granton School is a project run by Sustrans in partnership with Lambeth Council and Granton School that brings together the school community and local residents to find positive and innovative ways to improve the experience of arriving at and leaving school. This project will look at trialling and implementing semi-permanent measures on the streets surrounding the school to provide greater opportunity for children to travel to school actively.

More information about the project and events will follow on the site shortly.
