VALUABLE bike repair and maintenance skills are important life skills being taught during a six week project at Milton Keynes Academy.

Spanners are at the ready now the youngsters are equipped with the knowledge to tackle everything from a puncture to the servicing of brakes and gears – all as part of a pioneering partnership between the Academy, Milton Keynes Youth Service and Groundwork.

The students’ new-found skills during the mixed-age, practical classes have already been put to the test to service and replace much-needed parts on bikes from the Campbell Centre.
