    Story

    Chetwynde School recently became a free school following years as a private education school. As such, the school is undergoing a period of change and dealing with budget constraints.

    During 2017, Chetwynde School is seeking to raise funds to create a nurture room for primary students, which would act as a place for pupils to go when they are feeling upset or worried. The idea is to buy a log cabin or similar to put within the school grounds so pupils can have a quiet place to gather their thoughts.

    The room will be furnished with comfy sofas and beans bags to give it a relaxed and calming atmosphere and would be open to any child who needs some time either in a group or 1:1 with a teacher to discuss their worries or upset. We would also use them room for nurture groups when supporting children with social or emotional difficulties and for play times for those children who struggle to cope with lack of structure outside of the classroom.

    As well as the nurture room, Chetwynde School are seeking to raise funds to purchase playground equipment and play features to enhance primary school play during break times. Outdoor activity is an important part of our children’s development and the school are planning to use some of their Sport Premium Funding to begin developing the playground, but this will only cover a small part of what is needed.

    Please help Chetwynde School to raise funds for the new nurture room and playground equipment by sponsoring our cycling challenge which will see us attempt to cycle 312km in one day, with over 13,000ft of climbing.

    It's like doing the Fred Whitton, then deciding to do another 80 miles!

      Big thanks to everyone who has supported us on this epic challenge. That has to be the hardest cycle ride I have undertaken and unfortunately I missed the time cut to do the full 312km ride after suffering cramp throughout. Although I still managed to complete the 225km route which included 13,000ft of climbing. Big kudos to Mike who not only completed the 312km route, but did so after going through a set of brake blocks which seriously affected his braking power on some fast switchback descents. Mentally and physically tough day.

      Thanks again to everyone who has sponsored me and Mike on this epic cycling challenge. Nerves are starting to kick in now, the bike is packed and ready to go and my alarm clock is set for 1.30am to make sure I get to the airport in good time. Nothing more I can do to train, so unless someone turns up with a 'special package' it's all up to my legs to get me through the day.

      Wow, thanks to everyone who has sponsored us so far. The last few weeks have been tough training with a couple of 100 mile rides, a trip over Wrynose Pass in the Lakes and the Forest of Bowland Sportive, which was 100 miles and 9000ft of climbing. Mike has been also training hard, completing some long rides in unpleasant weather conditions. Last weekend he set off on a 100+ mile ride and experienced a split tyre. After a walk to Grange and a train ride home, he swapped equipment and managed to get 80+ miles in.... that's dedication!

    Following a sports injury, I took up cycling in 2014 to regain fitness and lose weight. As well as the fitness and social benefits, cycling has enabled me to undertake some challenges to raise money for local causes. In 2017 the challenge is to cycle 312km in one day.
