Parley First SchoolChildren at Parley First School had a ‘Bling Your Bike and Scooter’ day. The children were only allowed to use recycled objects, and some wonderful creations were ridden into school.

A giraffe, horse (complete with sound effects), several football themed bikes and scooters, aliens and space themes were just some of their creations. The winners were chosen by Darren Orchard, the school’s Sustrans representative.

“We are trying to encourage children to cycle or scoot to school rather than come by car, which promotes healthy lifestyles, a saving on fuel costs and therefore less exhaust pollution, but most of all – enjoyment!” said Rosie.
