Lymington Infant School is committed to supporting initiatives to encourage sustainable and active travel on the journey to and from school. We operate a Park & Stride scheme to try and reduce congestion around the school and to increase health benefits for children. We issue parents a parking permit to enable them to park in the Town Hall car park at drop off and pick up times.
