Salisbury - #163;9k grant takes pupils for a ride

19th February 2010 at 00:00

Lottery funding is giving children at St Joseph's School in Salisbury the chance to boost their cycling skills.

Teachers successfully bid for #163;9,000 from the Awards for All scheme, enough to buy 23 mountain bikes and helmets.

The new machines are being used in PE lessons - children have explored the local terrain and visited a nearby velodrome. In the future the bikes will be also be used by the community.

"We've got a new after-school cycling club and pupils have also been enjoying riding the bikes around the area," said PE teacher and keen cyclist Simon Gibbs, who came up with the idea of applying for funding. KM.
