Barnsley MP to unveil new cycle shelter at primary school

Barnsley MP Dan Jarvis was due to open a new cycle shelter at a primary school today.

The MP was invited to Shawlands Primary School to see the shelter which was built thanks to funding from Barnsley Council and the cycling charity Sustrans.

The shelter can store up to 20 bikes.

Shawlands wants more pupils to cycle to school.

Dave Atherton, Sustrans’ ‘Bike It’ officer for Barnsley, said: “Walking and cycling to school is a great way for our children to get the exercise they need every day.”
