Cycle safety initiative at Bedlington Station

A cycle safety event is being held in Bedlington Station this Saturday, March 15.

The event will take place at East Bedlington Community Centre from 11am to 2pm.

Funded by LMAPs, young people are encouraged to come along to event and take advantage of a free cycle check and pick up free cycle lights and locks.

The initiative has been organised in response to concerns raised by local residents with regards to the number of young cyclists in and around Bedlington Station riding without lights.

East Bedlington Parish Council has worked with the Bedlington Neighbourhood Team and the Northumberland County Youth workers to develop the event.

Road safety information will be available and free refreshments will be served.
