South Lakes Action on Climate Change - Transport Group meeting on Tuesday 24 April

This from Liz Ashburn, South Lakeland Action on Climate Change - Towards Transition, Transport Group Co-ordinator...

There will be a Transport Group meeting at 7.30 pm on Tuesday 24th April in the Intro Bar at the Brewery.

We are working with Lavahouse, a small local web and media design company, on a project to increase cycling and walking in the town centre, funded by South Lakeland District Council. The primary aim is to improve air quality on the town's streets, which frequently exceeds EU thresholds, but as this also affects other SLACC's environmental objectives, we are partnering Lavahouse on this project. Our inputs will be to run the Cycle Challenge and Cycling Skills for Adults sessions again this year, funded by the project which will enable us to expand the sessions and involve more workplaces and community groups in the Challenge with an updated web site.

Arrangements for this project are advancing, and it would be useful to have a meeting to share out the tasks associated with the Challenge and Skills Sessions. There are a variety of ways to help; ranging from helping with breakfast smoothies for Challenge participants to meeting and greeting Cycling Skills arrivals.

We would love to see you on the 24th; however if you would like to help but can't make this date, please contact me either before or after the meeting.

Hope to see you on the 24th,

Liz
