COMMUNITY UNITES TO MAKE CYCLING SAFER
March 18 2016.
An estate agency in Seaford is working together with a local cycling group, a safety training provider and a Sussex charity to provide first aid courses later this month.
Newberry Tully in Church Street, is sponsoring the two-day training sessions which will see bike ride leaders from Cycle Seahaven equipped with potentially lifesaving first aid skills.
Sussex Wildlife Trust has donated the use of a venue at the Seven Sisters Visitor Centre for free and the training itself will be provided at a discount by Seajay Training.
Stephen Newberry, of Newberry Tully, said: “We’re delighted to support such a worthwhile project. As a business we take our responsibility to the environment and our community very seriously.
“Cycling is a healthy pastime and doesn’t impact on the environment and for us to be able to help is fantastic and fits in with what we are passionate about.”
Andrew Lock of Cycle Seahaven said: “Thanks to the support of Newberry Tully, Sussex Wildlife Trust and Seajay Training we have been able to heavily discount the course.
“This in turn means that more of our ride leaders will be confident and able to deliver even safer rides for our members and be equipped to administer first aid whenever and wherever needed at other times.
“This is a great example of businesses working with charities and voluntary groups for the benefit of the community.”
The two day course held over the Easter Weekend has proved popular and is already fully booked.
