At Pumpkin Patch in North Berwick we believe in the the future of your children. This begins with their first day with us up to when they leave. However, we believe we can still make a difference after that by securing a cleaner future for them. The environment and issues facing the cleanliness of the area in the future is something we are passionate about addresing. We have recently introduced a Greener Travel Plan (GTP) in line with the local authorities to help reduce carbon emissions and the congestion of traffic in your area.
To reduce traffic congestion in our villages and towns, especially areas immediate to the nursery. This will be tackled by;
-Providing information on our local public transport.
-Offering safe storage for the parking of bicycles.
-The creation of a Park & Walk scheme.
-To promote the use of car share schemes by both parents and staff.
Below you will find a map of the North Berwick parking exclusion area. We support this local authority initiative that helps reduce road usage and also relieves congestion around the residential areas of an already very busy coastal village. (Click Image to download)
Our GTP progress to date:
Since we began this project we have already raised awareness and reduced local traffic by encouraging our staff to undertake a car share scheme to work....
If you require any additional information regarding our Greener Travel Plan please don’t hesitate to contact the nursery manager who is our designated Travel Co-Ordinator.
