This Saturday 6th October marks the re-opening of the Clapham Park Bikes Project and here is some info about it.
There will be two workshop sessions, teaching children/parents how to build a bike. The times are:
10am-12noon and 1pm -3pm
From 3pm to 6pm, the project will operate as a shop where people can bring their bikes along for repairs at a low cost.
The project organisers say ‘We are focussing particularly on working with children with learning or physical disabilities as well as either their parents or any other adult. If a child comes with their parent/carer/older brother/sister, we are happy for them to work together. You can bring your own bike and we can teach you how to fix it, or if you do not have a bike, we can provide you with one, and teach you how to out it together. You can keep the bike afterwards. We usually would like to get our learners and especially the children to do their cycle proficiency test with Cycle Training UK. We arrange this. This is a free service, if you are interested, please come along on Saturday or call Michael Small (Bike Project Youth Worker) on07956216811. We can only work with 5 individuals or pairs at the same time.’ The map below shows the location of the Project – it is just behind the Londis shop on Poynders Parade.
