Healthy start for pupils
Redcar & Cleveland’s sustainable transport team has encouraged children from across the borough to make a healthy start to the day by cycling to school.
The team circulated hundreds of posters and tickets to primary and secondary schools in advance of Bike To School Week (20-24 April).
Kevin Aherne, head teacher at Ings Farm Primary School, encouraged pupils to take up the challenge by rewarding those who cycled with a healthy breakfast.
He said: "Bike to School Week is a superb opportunity to highlight cycling as a viable alternative to the car. It promotes healthier lifestyles and reduces traffic congestion."
Each time a child cycled to school they received a ticket from their teacher for a free draw, with the top prize of a new bike and runners-up prizes of lights.
