Seize the Moment put grant from councillors to good use

FOUR Torridge District Councillors have used their grant allowance and clubbed together to present a cheque for £800 to local youth group Seize the Moment, money which was put towards the cost of a dozen new bikes.

The group, run by Jane Elliot, is planning to introduce organised cycle rides with its young members, promoting a healthy lifestyle and an appreciation of the natural environment. The 12 Land Rover Ultra Light bikes have already been used along the Tarka Trail and around Northam Burrows.

Other current projects for the popular youth group include the Happy Café in Westward Ho! which gives opportunities to young people to train as chefs.
