Project_Twelve:31 Off-road Motorcycling and Maintenance at Bumpy

Project_Twelve:31 spent a week with Bumpy (Birstall Urban Motorcycle Project for Youth) for a week of off road motorbiking, and learning mechanic skills.

Birstall Urban Motorcycle Project for Youth was established in 1989 as a training, testing and skills centre aimed at young motorcyclists causing a nuisance on wasteland.
The registered charity, nicknamed BUMPY, was the brain child of Police Woman Julia Morris, nee Rookledge, and followed a far from smooth course having taken four years to draw up.

The Idea stemmed from a period when Julia, as local Birstall Community Constable, had to deal with complaints from local residents, about youngsters riding motorcycles illegally on open areas of land. Julia, saw a need for the young people of the area to have a safe and legal place to ride.

In February 1984, representatives from the Police, probation service and motorcycle clubs came together in an attempt to provide a solution to the problem which was making the life unbearable for many residents living near these areas.

The result was a scheme turning the site off Nab Lane into a purpose built track for bikers to practice their skills legally and without causing nuisance.

As well as enjoying the off-road riding, the girls had experience of stripping down and servicing the motorcycles and will be receiving a certificate in ABC Motorcycle Maintenance.

Project_Twelve:31 would like to say a massive thank you to Caroline, Chris, Tom and Owen at Bumpy Ltd Leeds West Yorkshire.

Blood in Pee Campaign Launched by Public Health England

Public Health England (PHE) has recently launched a campaign to raise awareness of ‘blood in pee’ as a symptom of bladder and kidney cancers.

The main message is: If you notice blood in your pee, even if it’s ‘just the once’, tell your doctor. The advert will also highlight that finding cancer early makes it more treatable.

The primary target audience for the campaign is men and women over the age of 50.

Be Clear on Cancer aims to achieve earlier diagnosis of cancer by raising awareness of the signs and symptoms. The campaigns encourage people with relevant symptoms to see their GP without delay.

The ‘Blood in Pee’ campaign started off as regional pilots in early 2012 and since then the national campaign has run a number of times with the last campaign in 2016.

Resources that you can display in the workplace or other public areas can be downloaded from the PHE website.
