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 2nd December 2008, Tuesday 6th January 2009 and Tuesday 3rd February 2009. All are welcome, and we are especially pleased to meet members new to the Campaign.
Tuesday 2nd December 2008 – Cambridge Growth Agenda
We are delighted to announce that our speaker for this meeting will be Peter Studdert, Director of Joint Planning (Cambridge Growth Areas and Northstowe), who will speak on the topic of the Growth Agenda and the huge new developments around Cambridge. These new developments have very considerable implications for cycling both in the areas themselves and in Cambridge more widely. Peter is a lively speaker who is heavily involved in planning for the new developments. Another monthly meeting not to be missed!
Tuesday 6th January 2009 – Cycle couriers in Cambridge
Rob King of Outspoken Delivery, a local cycle courier firm, will be speaking to us about running a cycle courier company in Cambridge and the history of their operation.
Tuesday 3rd February 2009 – ‘CycleStreets’, plus local campaigning and issues
We’re taking a break this month from speaker meetings to give a chance for more time on local campaigning and issues, particularly those of most relevance to you. We’ll also be giving a demonstration of CycleStreets, the national version of the Campaign’s journey planner and photomap.
We would welcome suggestions for speakers for future meetings.
