THERE’S more fun on the school run for a healthy Morpeth pupil after she won a new bike for the journey.

Seven-year-old Suranne Dunn, from Morpeth All Saints First School, picked up her prize after taking part in the Walk On Wednesdays initiative.

The campaign is led by Northumberland County Council to encourage parents and pupils to use alternatives to the car, reducing congestion and increasing children’s exercise.

More than 50 schools registered to take part in the scheme, which included prizes for pupils showing strong commitment.

All Saints Office Manager Heather Taylor said: “Suranne was absolutely over the moon to win the bike. They brought it into assembly and when Suranne found out she had won it she couldn’t believe it. She will never forget that day for as long as she lives.”
