Bling your boots!

MIDLOTHIAN Council wants local children and parents to get out of their cars and on to their feet.

Walk to School Week (May 13-17) is dedicated to celebrating the benefits of walking.

In Midlothian, the highlight of the week is the annual inter-school relay walk, when schools walk to the nearest neighbouring school carrying banners promoting the walking to school message.

Participants are being encouraged to bling their boots, don odd socks and spike their hair.
