We had a really impressive turnout at the BNB film night last night including several councilors and council staff. It is very encouraging to get this level of support.
Thanks to everybody that came along. Thanks in particular to Julie Anne Genter for her talk and to Rhys Palmer for giving the councils perspective and helping to answer a number of really good questions after the film. As Julie Anne pointed out, while the money available to spend on cycling infrastructure is a drop in the ocean compared to what is being spent on maintaining roads and building new ones it is good to hear that our council is focusing on walking and cycling where possible and that by national standards we're doing well.
We will almost certainly do this again so watch this space ! If you want to be added to our mailing list and be notified of the next film night as well as other events that are coming up please contact us and/or follow our Facebook page.
Thanks very much to The Boathouse for allowing us to host the event there, in particular thanks to Ali helping us to promote the event, set everything up as well as serving at the bar. Thanks also to Cycological for the generous donation of a cycle helmet for the photo competition (the winner will be posted shortly).
