School chil­dren use their shed

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE chil­dren are now able to cy­cle to school thanks to the in­stal­la­tion of a new bike shed.

Pupils, staff and par­ents at Char­tridge School, in Cogdells Lane, Char­tridge, are de­lighted with the new cy­cle shed that has re­cently been in­stalled.

Funds were raised for the fa­cil­ity from this year’s Ride Char­tridge char­ity event, which was spon­sored by Char­tridge Lodge.

was of­fi­cially opened by head teacher Steve But­ler on Fri­day, Novem­ber 6.

Mr But­ler said: “I’m de­lighted to be able to have this to en­cour­age more chil­dren to cy­cle and scooter to school.

“Fresh air and ex­er­cise has such a pos­i­tive ef­fect on chil­dren’s learn­ing and devel­op­ment and cy­cling to school each morn­ing sup­ports this hugely.

“Our thanks go to our par­ents as­so­ci­a­tion for rais­ing the funds to pur­chase the shel­ter, par­tic­u­larly those who or­gan­ised our Ride Char­tridge cy­cle sportive this year, which raised a huge amount to­wards this.

“We would also like to par­tic­u­larly thank Char­tridge Lodge too, which very gen­er­ously spon­sored and sup­ported our Ride Char­tridge Sportive.”

Hun­dreds of peo­ple took part in the sec­ond an­nual Ride Char­tridge, which took place in May.
