Young hooligans were on the loose in Seatoun last week, but you won’t be seeing any of them locked up in time-out.

Seatoun Kindergarten celebrated its annual ‘wheelathon’ on Friday which saw about 50 children from ages three to 12 zooming around a car park.

It was the first wheelathon for Justine Coull, mum to Theo (5), William (3) and Elspeth (1).

Justine says her young family feel very at home in Seatoun. “We’re from abroad and we love it here. You see kids riding around [in Seatoun] and you don’t get that very often anymore.”

Head teacher Tara Jones says the wheelathon funds will go towards equipment and upgrading old facilities.

“It’s a really good community. For me what this place is, is a place where people can meet. They can come and have a cuppa. It’s a hub.”
