Scrambler bike education project - Sefton schoolchildren activity day at Crosby Lakeside Centre

Updated: Oct 26, 2019


Merseyside Police and Sefton Council yesterday (Thursday, 16 September) held an action-packed day for Year 6 children from schools across South Sefton, as part of a scrambler bike education programme aimed at local school children. A total of 160 Year 6 children from Lander Road Primary School, All Saints Primary School, St Monica's Primary School, St Oswalds C of E Primary School and The Grange Primary School were taken to Crosby Lakeside Centre and took part in raft building, sailing, windsurfing, bellboating, bush craft, orienteering and problem solving. The day is part of a project set up involving Merseyside Police, Sefton Council, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and the L30 Millions Project aimed at highlighting the impact scrambler bikes have on local communities. Merseyside Police Schools Officer Rebecca Snape said: "Yesterday was a fun-filled day at the Lakeside Centre and the children tried out lots of activities for the first time, picking up some valuable skills and hopefully igniting their passion for outdoor activities. There will be plenty more events coming up, with surprises in store for everyone!" Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Communities and Housing, said: “So far this has been a very successful partnership project highlighting the dangers associated with scrambler bikes and how they can affect local communities. “By getting involved, we hope all the young people have learned some valuable lessons and they have now been rewarded with a great day out using the amazing facilities at Crosby Lakeside.” Neighbourhood Inspector Ian Jones said: "Education and engagement is such an important part of the work we do alongside Sefton Council and our other partners. “During this initiative, we not only want to show young people the serious dangers and nuisance that scrambler bikes cause across the community, but also encourage them to learn different activities, skills and pursuits as a way of channelling their energy and creativity. The enthusiasm we saw from everyone yesterday was great, and this autumn term will see them get involved in all sorts of competitions and activities, with a grand finale well worth waiting for."
