Lockdown has been an opportunity for many of us to take solace and pleasure in walking and cycling in our own neighbourhood, exploring places we hadn’t been for a while or perhaps didn’t even know existed. Walking and cycling is good for us…reduces the air pollution that we know contributes to poor outcome in people with Covid-19 infections and exercise in fresh air keeps us all healthier. It also reduces traffic congestion and all the costs and frustration that go with that. 1.3 million bikes have apparently been sold in the UK since March….let’s make our streets safer so people actually want to cycle and walk again!
Everyone is invited to our virtual Town Hall meeting on Monday 6 July 7pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org for joining details. Let our Councillors know what you think about this, and sign our petition here:
