Youth cycle maintenance classes working well
There's a calm and attentive atmosphere between 4 and 5.30pm on Mondays and Tuesdays at Pedal Power Kennington. Digger and Leo teach cycle maintenance across five Mondays, with Pim and Leo teaching on Tuesdays. I've been impressed at the continued attendance of the trainees.
From 5.30 - 7pm we revert to a drop in workshop where 10-16 year olds bring their bikes to mend or work on ones we've had donated.
Everything is up in the air at the moment about the future of the Lilian Baylis site we're based at, with the Council resolving how to move it forward. Let's hope everything pans out well.
