ROAD safety advice was top of the agenda for some Darlington youngsters.

Children at Cockerton Primary School celebrated the end of Walk to School Week with a visit from the borough council's safety mascot, Pedestrian Pete.

They were among hundreds of pupils throughout the town to take part in the initiative, which encouraged them to walk or ride bikes to school.

Teachers told children of the health benefits of walking to school, while also encouraging them to stay safe on the roads.

* The school still needs contributions towards its target of £1,000 to set up a lending library of maths games. Please call teacher Christine Kirby on (01325) 380758 for details.
