It was a great day for the opening of the new active travel pathway around Llanfyllin Primary and Secondary school. We worked with Spike Blackhurst, a Blacksmith, to turn the competition winner from the Ysgol Uwchradd Llanfyllin High School competition to design the sculpture back in February into a reality. We were joined today by Llanfyllin Primary School to help celebrate the active travel route which was opened by county councillors, Myfanwy Alexander and Peter Lewis. The aim of the sculpture and the new route is to encourage pupils to be more active and to consider travelling to school by more sustainable means such as walking and cycling. The winning design included elements such as the dragon’s feet and the bicycle wheel to highlight active travel to the pupils and the wider community. It was funded by Sustrans Cymru / Welsh Government.
