GETTING around on two wheels is not always an option for residents of Bystock Trust home for learning disabled, so a grant for the home has solved the problem with a three-wheel alternative.

With a number of residents unable to manage the physical demands of a two-wheel bike, the new tricycle will be a welcome addition to the home.

Cllr Taylor said: "I have known for some time of the excellent work the trust does with this group of very deserving people. When I learned that some of their residents needed a tricycle, I was delighted to allocate funds from my locality budget.
