Operation School Bike

I’ve just finished speaking at the launch of Operation School Bike in Charles Darwin School in Bromley.

This is a great scheme and one that shows some real joined up thinking by the school, the police and the local community.  The partnership have got hold of bicycles which have been abandoned or recovered by the police, they are refurbished by a local company and loaned to the school’s students to encourage them to cycle to school.

This make good use of otherwise useless bikes, encourages cycling, helps fight childhood obesity, reduces congestion and disorder on the local buses in the morning and afternoon rush and helps to build a good relationship between the students and the local police.

All good.

Regular readers (using the plural, who am I kidding!) may well recognise the name Charles Darwin School, I was at the opening of their Anti Knife Pledge Wall back in 2008 and hosted them a City Hall in 2009.
