Bike Club Members fixing their bikes

Westminster have gained a new Bike Club: Queens Park Forum Bike Club. They ran their first bike mainenance session and are looking to build up membership ready for an official launch.

Queens Park Forum (QPF) are part of a well established charity, the Paddington Development Trust which focuses on promoting and supporting community led regeneration by working with local residents. They have brought £30 million into deprived communities in the North Paddington area in the last 12 years and have excellent local links and partnerships and organise community events to promote a sense of community in the area.

The QPF Bike Club plans to allow hands on maintenance by local people using the tools or a service they can use to get the work done at the Beethoven Centre. The QPF Bike Club will also move out to events where one-off Dr Bikes have proven very popular and three have already been earmarked as part of the QPF Bike Club activity plan.

The QPF Bike Club are using their Bike Club Grant to help  train up local volunteers to deliver the project  and provide a sustainable and affordable bike maintenance service  to the local community offering recycled bikes, repairs and spares.
