l Members of King’s Lynn Cycling Club and some of the pupils,parents and staff from Holly Meadows School at Pott Row took part in a sponsored cycle event on Sunday morning.
KLCC assisted the children completing as many laps in a pre-determined time of a 3.1-mile route around the villages of Pott Row and Grimston.
Headteacher Mrs Jennie Wildsmith-Garton commented: “The ride was an excellent way of promoting cycling at Holly Meadows.
“We are always looking for ways to enhance and enrich school sport and Lisa Seaton already leads off road cycling activities within our grounds for Key Stage 2 and ‘Balanceablity’ early balance and cycling training at Key Stage 1.
“The connection we now have with KLCC in organising such events as the sponsored ride in addition to hosting your annual road race helps us to raise funds to put back into cycling at Holly Meadows.
“Any money raised will be used to pay for more of the balance bikes so that we have all sizes for Key Stage 1.”
