Successful ‘Dr Bike’ Session held in Staveley

Monday, May 17th, 2010

On Sunday, Staveley residents dusted down all shapes and sizes of bikes from sheds and garages to get a free safety check and maintenance overhaul. Volunteers looked at twenty three bikes, with demand exceeding supply of bicycle mechanics! A second session is planned for those who missed out.
