Bicycle boost for two schools in community initiative

TLA is one of two local schools who have benefited from the donation of bicycles, given to the community by Jackson Civil Engineering, following completion of the Bognor Regis to Littlehampton pedestrian/cycle path. The 4.5km-long shared path opened in August, providing a direct, sustainable transport link between the two towns.

Five bicycles were given to children at Bishop Tufnell CofE Primary School in Bognor Regis to use for their Bikeability course (formerly known as Cycling Proficiency). The other five bicycles were given to TLA students nominated by their year teams.

Richard Killean, Jackson’s Contracts Manager, said: “It is with great pleasure that we donate these bikes to promote the use of the new cycleway and encourage the younger travelling public to choose a healthier form of transportation. We recognise the disruption construction work can cause, so we’d like to thank the local community for their patience whilst this project was being built.”

Roger Elkins, County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said: “We’re grateful for this generous gesture by Jackson. It’s great to see a contractor getting involved in the community and underlining some of our own key messages, with safety at the forefront and a welcome boost for our successful Bikeability scheme, too.”

The bikes were presented to TLA students on Friday by representatives from Jackson Civil Engineering.
