CHILDREN are getting safely to play sessions in Newsome, thanks to a walking bus scheme.
Ashenhurst Communities United Project (Cup) teamed up with Kirklees Council's Neighbourhood Warden scheme to make sure children got safely to and from activity sessions on the Roger Lane playing fields.
The idea followed the attempted abduction of a young girl this month.
Police arrested a man in connection with the incident, but he was released without charge.
Investigations into the attempt to abduct the six-year-old local girl are still going on.
Neighbourhood wardens Caroline Joseph and Simon Morris walk the route, through the Ashenhurst estate, before and after the daily sessions.
Parents can either wait until they walk past or meet at designated meeting points.
"Parents are obviously feeling concerned about the safety of their children at the moment," said warden supervisor Dave Sanderson.
"We want the children to continue having fun in their summer holidays. Through working with Cup we can enable them to get outdoors and enjoy themselves in a fully supervised environment," he added.
Cup is a registered charity which provides activities for young people, in a bid to tackle crime and improve the lives of local people.
It has been running sessions throughout the summer holidays at a number of centres in this area.
