Staff, customers and students have joined forces for an all-day static bike ride for Westbourne Primary School.

The fundraising event on Saturday was organised by Rana Denholm, owner of Whistler’s, and held outside the fish and chip shop in The Grove.

Rana said: “The event went really well. We had a great turnout of volunteers, which we are extremely grateful for. Combined, they rode 172 miles and raised £280 to go towards the reading shelter at Westbourne Primary School.

“We also had competitions for people to guess the number of miles cycled on the day and also the highest number of miles, per half hour.”

Congratulations go to Alan Durham, who did 13½ miles in 30 minutes, and Tina from the Co-op, who was nearest the total miles, having guessed 178.

Rana added: “The day was thoroughly enjoyed by customers and staff and we are so pleased we are able to make a contribution to our local school.”
