A new World Cup bike workshop has been launched to help tackle anti-social behaviour while promoting "community identity" and "cohesion" in Sutton.

Charity Horizon, based at Horizon Church Sutton in Assembly Walk, is encouraging young people to bring in their own bikes to work on during July 6 and 15.

Workshops will have a mixture of fixing up some bikes, led by some technicians, to make them usable again while watching the FIFA World Cup as it draws to its conclusion.

Astrid Maynard, a Horizon youth worker, said: "The aim of the project is to reduce anti-social behaviour, promote community identity and cohesion and give young people a sense of purpose and increase self-esteem by engaging the young people who congregate outside the shops on The Circle.

"We want to encourage a culture of achievement motivation amongst the young people of our area to support the development of skills and knowledge in order to succeed and provide young people with safe place to be."

The first of four quarter-final clashes will commence on July 6, as Uruguay take on France at 5pm in Nizhny Novgorod.

Meanwhile, England, who face Sweden in their first World Cup quarter-final clash since 2006 the following day, would face Croatia or Russia if they progress.

"The focus of the night will be on the pedal bike workshops, as well as the relevant people who can provide knowledge and assistance in this.

"Young people will have the option to either bring in their own bikes to work on or work on one of the bikes that have been donated to us by our local police."

Attendees will be able to view the football on a projector and big screen while pizza will be provided for all the workshops.

Resources and support for writing CVs, as well as job and college application forms, will also be provided.

The first workshop will be held 6pm, on July 6, while the second will be at 2.30pm on July 15, at Horizon Church Sutton behind the shops on The Circle.
