National charity Go Kids Go visited St Peter’s Junior School for a free wheelchair skills workshop at the weekend.
The training, which takes place just once a year, welcomed young wheelchair users to play sports and learn other skills.
Roy Wild, training manager, said: “Back wheel balancing (so that you can go up and down kerbs independently) and games like wheelchair basketball and wheelchair dance are among the skills featured in the workshop.
“We bring extra wheelchairs so mums, dads and siblings can get involved and join in the games.
“Our patron, TV presenter Ade Adeptian was one of the first young wheelchair users to come on one of our courses, some years ago and he is now a great role model for a lot of the children.”
