2 pedestrian-orientated events

May I draw your attention to 2 events.
The first is  an interesting meeting in Westbury on Trym TOMORROW, Thursday 21st January:

“Re-claiming our village centre?”

SusWot invites you to come and hear some interesting ideas about how we could make the centre of our village more pedestrian-friendly. Good for the community, good for business, and good for shoppers.

Thursday 21 January, 7.30pm, at Westbury Primary School

More info (including initial sketches) are at www.suswot.org.uk

SusWot – using less, living more. Part of Transition Bristol.

The second event is hosted by Sustrans, to review their ‘DIY streets’ project on March 11th:

The organisation’s DIY Streets projects, in London, South Wales, Coventry, Manchester, Sheffield, Torquay and Oxford, have encouraged local people to re-design their own streets, making them safer, cleaner and more people-friendly.

The conference, to be held in Bristol on March 11, will review the evaluation results of the pilot projects carried out. Residents’ success in slowing down traffic and making streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists could see the scheme rolled out across the UK.

Members of the public are invited to attend the conference at Bristol’s Council House. Tickets are £55 each (£20 concessions) including lunch and are available through Sustrans. To make a booking, please contact Mira Ruskin on 0207 0172 364 or email mira.ruskin@sustrans.org.uk by 26 February.
