Monthly meetings

This article was published in 2008, in Newsletter 79.

Open meetings, which everyone is welcome to attend, are held every month. The diary section of this Newsletter and our website have the dates of forthcoming meetings, which are normally held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm for 8 pm at the Friends’ Meeting House, Jesus Lane. Tea and coffee are served from around 7.30 pm.

The next meetings are on Tuesday 5th August, Tuesday 2nd September and Tuesday 7th October 2008. All are welcome, and we are especially pleased to meet members new to the Campaign.

Tuesday 5th August 2008 – Cambridge: a Cycling Demonstration Town

Come and hear more about the plans for Cambridge now that it is to become a ‘Cycling Demonstration Town’. We already have a ‘wish list’, compiled from comments emailed to the members’ discussion list, which we shall be discussing. Bring your ideas on what needs adding and your views on what should be the priorities.

Tuesday 2nd September 2008 – speaker to be confirmed

Unfortunately we have not been able to finalise details, but possibilities include a chance to hear reports from the visit to Assen in May, or more about Jim and Jane Chisholm’s holiday in Germany, or perhaps it will be something quite different. You’ll have to come along anyway!

Tuesday 7th October – Congestion charging

Paul Cook, the Head of Transport Policy and Strategy at Cambridgeshire County Council, will be speaking about congestion charging. This is a chance to find out the latest position regarding this controversial proposal and to discuss it and alternative approaches to tackling congestion.

We would welcome suggestions for speakers for future meetings.
