Phil Filmer Presents Schools with Big Pedal Awards

Councillor Phil Filmer, Portfolio Holder for Front Line Services, was yesterday 'wheelie' pleased to be invited to present awards to both Greenacre and Bradfields Academies for their achievements taking part in the Big Pedal 2018.

Sponsored by UK cycling charity Sustrans, the Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooter-based challenge, and aims to inspire kids, teachers and parents to get on two wheels in order to make the daily trek to school. Every day, schools can battle it out to see who can get as many kids and teachers cycling or scooting to school.

Councillor Filmer would like to congratulate all who took part, and hopes that everyone enjoyed and will continue to try this eco-friendly version of the standard school run.
