On our Edventure Start-Up Course, students spend 10 weeks starting-up a community enterprise in response to a local challenge.
The theme for Edventure’s 14th team of Start-Up will be to create a community bike workshop on the site of The Bike Shed at Critchill School, Frome. Somewhere for local people to learn/share skills, to repair, maintain and refurb bikes.
The student team could put together all kinds of different programmes, from refurbishing bikes for resale, to offering drop-in repair services and bike MOT sessions – they’d love to what you’d like to see/what your family would use.
The project is a partnership between Edventure, Critchill School and their Bike Shed, Frome Town Council, Frome Missing Links, and other groups. The aim is to get more people in Frome on two wheels more often, and to bring people together, to upskill people, cut carbon emissions, save land-fill waste and create meaningful employment opportunities.
