On Wednesday 25th November, the ABC 891 Radio Station visited The Bike Shed, which runs out of the Belair Uniting Church, and which is administered by our own Blackwood Uniting Church. There had been a news segment earlier in the week about there being a shortage of bicycles in Adelaide as a result of COVID. Local member Sam Duluk brought to the ABC’s attention the long-standing activities of The Bike Shed at Belair (thanks, Sam!), and hence the follow-up on Wednesday. Peter Jones, Coordinator of the Bike Shed, and Jacqui Harrison were interviewed by the ABC and shared details about the ethos of the Bike Shed, namely helping disadvantaged groups and individuals, and how the program has been going for some twenty years. It was a terrific interview, and Peter and Jacqui did brilliantly in bringing wider attention to this terrific ongoing community service. You can listen to the interview and look at photographs on the links below. Well done, Jacqui and Peter! Keep up the wonderful work, men and women of The Bike Shed, and to those, such as Jacqui Harrison, and Lynona and David Hawkins who support them!
