A new path we built in Liskeard, Cornwall, is helping parents leave the car at home for the daily school run.
Pupils at St Martin’s Primary School used to have to be either driven to and from their lessons, scramble along muddy tracks or walk a long way.

“I had asked if the footpath could be opened for the beginning of this term and Linden Homes got it done in time. I feel quite elated that we’ve managed it.”
Linden Homes South West managing director Nigel Palmer added: “We’re delighted to have helped out Liskeard’s families with this community footpath which makes it easier to get to school and will even cut out a few car miles too.”
