Organisations in North Somerset have walked away with accolades at a travel awards ceremony.
The Travelwest awards recognise organisations and businesses in the West of England whose commitment to sustainable travel makes them stand out.
North Somerset Council received a silver accreditation for its travel plan, with a mention of its fleet of electric cars which make up nearly half of the authority’s vehicles.
Worle Community School was presented with most improved medium-sized workplace and the prestigious sustainable travel champion award was given to the school’s assistant business manager, Neill Bird.
The school has improved its cycle parking, launched a journey sharing platform, provided staff discounts for rail and bus travel and purchased an electic bike.
