YOUNG cyclists won bikes and other goodies after getting to grips with road safety.

Schoolchildren in Barnsley were asked to design a poster to promote cycle safety with the winning poster being printed professionally and displayed in local shops and libraries.

Year six pupils from Oakhill Primary in Stairfoot, Hunningley Lane School in Kendray, The Edmunds Primary in Worsbrough Dale and Ward Green Primary all took part.

The winner of first prize was Daisy Joustra, from Ward Green Primary, who received a bicycle donated by cycle shop Geared Up, on Barnsley Road, Wombwell.

Ella Gruszyk, also of Ward Green Primary, came in second place and received a cycle helmet and goody bag also donated by Geared Up.

Other runners-up were Kian Wrigglesworth from Kendray Primary, as well as Cally Harston, Elyse Hunter and Hannah Spofford, all from Oakhill Primary who all received cycle goody bags.

Richard Hodgson, from Geared Up, presented a group of the children with their prizes.

He said he was ‘very happy to support such a worthwhile cause.’

The competition was run by South Yorkshire Police together with Barnsley Council, on behalf of the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership.

The partnership was formed to reduce road casualties through campaigns and by focusing on accident blackspots.

Other members include the fire and ambulance services.
