Wisbech St. Mary Primary School pupils were left amazed by the skills of professional BMX rider Matt Hemmings after he swung by the school for a special visit as part of Sustrans’ schools programme.

Flat land BMX rider Hemmings – who holds the Guinness World Record for the most spins on the spot - stopped off at the school on Thursday March 10 to show off his stunt skills to the school’s pupils to try and encourage them and other children across the region to cycle, scoot and walk to school.

Sustrans’ school work is funded through the Cambridgeshire County Council, with schools officer Craig Johnson helping to organise visits to four schools in Fenland.

Craig said: “The children loved the visit – they were all screaming when Matti did his tricks.

“Hopefully the visit will encourage the children to get their bikes out the sheds and use them to get to school.”
