That the Parliament congratulates Glenboig Development Trust, which recently won Paths For All's Active Travel Group of the Year; recognises that this award was a result of the Trust's fantastic work in local communities, including its high impact walking and cycling initiatives, including "walking bus", pram walks, health walks and community bike days, and understands that the Trust's walking school bus initiative helped to reduce 91 car journeys a week on average, and that the health walks support people to be active and reduce social isolation.
