Witham Wheelers have joined the select group of East Midlands cycling clubs to have achieved Clubmark status.

The club attained British Cycling’s Go-Ride Clubmark Accreditation in recognition of the progress they have made with youth development.

BC East Midlands regional development manager recently visited the club’s headquarters at Grantham Cricket Club, in Gorse Lane, to present them with the prestigous award.

Clubmark is the only national cross- sports quality accreditation scheme for clubs with junior sections. It is built around a set of core criteria which ensure that accredited clubs operate to a set of consistent, accepted and adopted minimum operating standards.

l Witham Wheelers Go-Ride sessions will start up on Tuesday, April 2, at Kesteven Rugby????? Club, in Gorse Lane, from 6.45pm. Visit www.withamwheelers.co.uk or contact tracymc38@hotmail.com
