New Members Meet-Up (4th July)
Cycle campaigning is simpler than you think, but we need volunteers.
Southwark Council and TfL won’t act without evidence that local people want cycling improvements. We need a bigger team to help us build cycling in Southwark and gather evidence that people support Space for Cycling. You can be a resident, employee or business, and even 15 minutes of your time will make a difference.
To learn more, why not visit our “New Volunteers Meet-Up” on the 4th of July, 6.30-8.30 at The Grove pub on Camberwell Grove (formerly the Grand Union). You can drop in for 10 minutes or stay all evening
If you’ve already got an idea but you don’t know how to achieve it, then come along and we’ll happily give advice. You usually need enthusiasm more than expertise!
If you’re interested in helping but you don’t know what to do, we need individuals and teams of volunteers to do things like:
– Identify problems on a route
– Ride a proposed cycle route with Southwark Council planners
– Write to local councillors
– Teach a new cyclist a good commuter route
– Write up a good cycling route for our website
– Hand out recruitment or campaigning leaflets one morning
– Add information about local problems to our wiki
– Help marshal a Dr Bike session and advertise it to passers-by
– Help load and unload bikes for the Dunwich Dynamo ride
– Write to politicians about Direct Vision lorries
– Project manage a group response to a Quietway or Superhighway proposal
– Help make the proposed Dog Kennel Hill controlled parking zone better for cycling
– Start organising Autumn Cycle to Work day
– Run a hackspace
– Help us to communicate our campaigns better
A lot of new cycle routes are being proposed by Southwark Council and the Mayor of London – but if we don’t demonstrate enough community support they aren’t going to happen. If you want to know more about potential improvements near you, come along to the meet up or email southwark “at” lcc.org.uk
p.s. Seeing as you’ve read to the end, why not answer the one-question Southwark Council Cycle Parking consultation, if you live in affected streets.
