A set of people from the Clovenstone Community Centre’s parent and tots group, are the next group to take part in Community Centre’s fix a bike scheme run in partnership with lifelong learning and Police Scotland.
The group work with a mechanic to repair the bikes donated by Police Scotland, learning a series of new bike maintenance skills and at the end of the course they get to keep the bike they worked on.
The group really enjoyed working on the bikes and plan to use them now and in the new year to keep fit.
Sami Laidlaw one of the mums taking part said:
They really appreciated Billy Duff, the bike Mechanic’s help in learning new skills while working on the bikes.
A new bike course is planned to run in the new year with 2 new groups already booked in.
Sas Martinez lifelong learning Development officer said
It’s great to work with Police Scotland. We can help each other by repairing some bikes that may get binned anyway, while learning new skills and hopefully getting fit at the same time. It’s a win, win for everybody!
