Sports Minister visits school funded via LCC community team
Harefield Academy secondary school in Hillington receives grant funding from the Community Cycling Fund for London run by LCC.
The Academy provides cycle training to secondary schools, and also takes part in a back-to-cycling initiative. This includes maintenance sessions and bike rides for students and families.
Cycle training for pupils offers a safe and easy introduction to cycling for beginners and a way of improving existing skills for those already able to ride.
Gerry Sutcliffe, Minister for Sports, recently visited the school. He said, "I was very impressed by the bikes purchased with CCFfL funding and the motivations behind the project."
The bikes bought under the CCFfL scheme are available to use as pool bikes for students at the Harefield Academy.
