GETTING FROM A TO B

The City Council Transport Strategy consultation is running until 2 November:  https://bristol.citizenspace.com/growth-regeneration/bristol-transport-strategy/

It addresses the challenges that Bristol faces as a city and uses the hashtag #2036 as a target year. How can we influence the decision-makers to take our local needs into account? We’ll look at the strategy and consultation,  and at getting around/ in/out of Greater Bedminster, now and in the future: whether it be on foot, bike, mobility scooter, car, bus or train – and who knows, even underground…

Speakers will include:

Helen Moody, Friends of parson Street Station

Ben Barker, Let’s Walk Bedminster

Roger Bealing, Ashton Gate Station Action Group

To be chaired by (keen local cyclist) Matthew Symonds

BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT

Children’s workshop In partnership with the City Farm, UWE and claircity.eu

Friday 2 November, 10am-12noon, Windmill Hill City Farm Cafe. Free Admission.

Using learning materials provided by the claircity project, we’ll​ c​onduct simple practical experiments using pipettes which will demonstrate how air quality from a local road or park can be tested. The children will then brainstorm some ideas about how air quality can be improved, and following a snack break will be given paper and pens to produce posters to get the messages across.

Admission free, soft drinks and biscuits provided (up to 25 children). Best suited to 4-11 yr olds. Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer. Book here
