Local people and visitors to Alyth Market on 22 July will be able to get their cycles expertly repaired thanks to a grant from Alyth Development Trust’s Community Projects Fund.
The independent panel that judges applications to the Fund has awarded £400 to Alyth Cycles to cover the costs of spare parts and staff provided as part of the “Dr Bike” service.
Alyth Cycles has attended previous markets and other events as Dr Bike, proving very popular and helping to encourage more people to get out and about on their cycles safely.
Dr Bike will be on hand at the Market in and around Alyth’s central Square throughout the Market Day, and if previous outings are anything to go by there’s likely to be a queue of eager cyclists looking to get some TLC for their machines, so get there early!
ADT and the Community Projects Fund panel are delighted to support this initiative once again, as it aligns with Alyth’s commitment to promoting sustainable transport and exercise.
Callum Brooks, who runs Alyth Cycles at The Barony Old Church on Commercial Street, said: “We’re looking forward to meeting anyone with a bike needing some attention, whether you’re a casual rider or a keen enthusiast. We’re grateful to the Community Projects Fund for making this possible.”
ADT’s Community Projects Fund distributes the community benefit funds provided for Alyth by the operators of the Tullymurdoch Windfarm, some five miles north of the town. Applications to the fund are judged by an independent panel of volunteers drawn from across the community. The next deadline for applications to the fund is 15 July.
