Preparing for the Milton Road consultation:

The Milton Road consultation is set to begin in mid-December. We have a group of local campaigners who are working together to respond. If you would like to join them, please get in touch or join the conversation here: http://camcycle.cyclescape.org/threads/2140

Creating a Campaign video about the City Deal:

We are planning a video creation workshop to plan and create a series of short videos about the City Deal to help explain the various projects and our response. If you have video making skills or wish to learn then please join us. Likewise – if you are knowledgable about the City Deal then we welcome your input.

We are looking for ideas. Let us know what you think here:http://camcycle.cyclescape.org/threads/348

Mill Road Winter Fair:

We have a fun group of volunteers for the Mill Road Winter Fair if you would like to join them, and escape the hustle and bustle for a while, you can let us know here:http://camcycle.cyclescape.org/threads/2067

There will be a lot of experienced support on the day so don’t worry if you have not volunteered before or do not know what to say.
