A wheelie festive way to travel to school!

Youngsters at two Luton primary schools really will be jingling all the way, after ‘blinging’ up their bikes and scooters with Christmas decorations.

The charity Sustrans has been working with pupils at St Margaret of Scotland and The Meads primary schools to encourage them to travel to school on two wheels, setting up bike clubs and teaching them about bike maintenance.

And the children jumped at the chance to give their bikes and scooters with festive fancies last week.

Richard Noon from Sustrans, said: “Walking, scooting and cycling to school is a great way for our children to get the exercise they need everyday to keep healthy, and research shows it allows them to become better students in the classroom. And let’s not forget it’s fun, too.”
