Woodburn bike project reopens

Woodburn Youth Bike Workshop reopens to the public from Friday from 1.30pm to 4pm.

The workshop is in the blue unit next to the MARC Building at 10 Woodburn Road, Woodburn.

All repairs are carried out by a small number of young volunteers from the local area.

And they are supported by two adult youth workers from the Bill Russell Woodburn Youth Project.

Jennifer Gentle, social work assistant for the Community Learning and Development department of Midlothian Council, said: “Donations of old bikes and bike parts are welcome.

“Low cost bike repairs available like inner tubes etc. We also now have a small selection of secondhand bikes for sale.

For further information, please pop in on a Friday afternoon.”
