15 Mar Ambler community targets idlers to tackle air pollution
The Ambler community came together recently to tackle air pollution by targeting idling vehicles in surrounding streets.
The team spoke to lots of parents in the playground who were all very positive about taking action to reduce vehicle idling around the school to try and improve local air quality.
@AmblerSchool On a day when I receive an email from the mayor with a possible air quality alert- I’m very grateful for @idlingaction raising awareness at our school #antipollution #blackstockroad #finsburypark @MayorofLondon https://t.co/Z3maF8tlRm

The volunteers also spoke to several drivers near to the school who were idling and asked them to switch off their engines. Signs have now been put up in the area asking drivers to switch them off when parked, which hopefully will ease pollution.

A highlight for the kids themselves was taking part in an Eco-Action Snakes & Ladders game, so check out some of our favourite photos from the afternoon below:
