The AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been delivering a ‘Bikeability’ programme to over 350 Year 5 & 6 pupils on the Fylde Coast, in partnership with Lancashire County Council, Fylde Council and The Department for Transport.
Bikeability is a training programme which enables children to ride bikes safely on the road and gives them the skills and confidence for all kinds of cycling. The Foundation believe it is crucial that children are fully confident on how to use their bikes on the road in an efficient manner.
The Foundation works across the Fylde coast in a variety of settings including Pear Tree Specialist School, where they provide a bespoke safer cycling operation, offering equal and inclusive opportunities.
Foundation Director Tom Hutton said: “It’s excellent that we are able to deliver this programme in partnership with Lancashire County Council, Fylde Council and The Department for Transport. The main aim of this programme is to teach children the importance of being proficient on the roads whilst on a bicycle and give them the necessary information and vital experience to remain safe whilst on the roads.”
In other news, the Foundation will be running their successful May Half Term Sports Camps from 31st May. Sports Camps run next week Tuesday to Friday and places are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
