Lornshill Academy Active Travel Hub is a joint project between Falkirk Active Travel Hub and Lornshill Academy Clackmannanshire, funded by the Paths for All Smarter Choices Smarter Places Open Fund.
The project aims to increase the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs around active travel to help the whole school community make the most of their journeys using walking and cycling through the development of an in-school active travel hub.
Since April 2019 the project has had over 1700 engagements with pupils, staff and parents at Lornshill Academy. This has been through various activities including, school assemblies, bike maintenance workshops and classes, adaptive and electric bike trials, Dr Bikes, led walks, pop-up hubs, pump track and smoothie bike sessions as well as bike skills sessions and games.
Having recently been successful for another round of funding from Paths for All, the project will continue throughout 2020-21 to work with the pupils, staff and parents at Lornshill to promote the use of active travel in the community.
