Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Graham Bright, dropped into the Littleport Youth Bike Project to see how a £2000 boost from his youth fund was benefitting the group.
The project is part of the Grange Community Trust and helps engage young people in a responsible and controlled environment through refurbishing old motorbikes.
The young people, aged between 15 and 17 showed off their new tool kit and ramp which they had bought with the Commissioner’s funding.
The group were busy working on a 1982 Yamaha DT 125 LC motorbike engine which had sat in a field for more than 10 years before they recovered it. The engine is now in pristine condition and the youths are working with their leaders to rebuild the bike to enter into the National Youth Motorcycle Building Competition held early next year.
Sir Graham said: “It is great to see the funding going towards a group of enthusiastic young people who are learning real-life skills. It is also encouraging that some of them may go on to get apprenticeships within this field.”
