Come along this evening, 19 November 2012, to a joint Lambeth and Southwark Cyclists meeting where we will be hearing from Dr Ruth Wallis, the new Director of Public Health for Lambeth and Southwark.
Ruth will be outlining how the Public Health team will be working to develop cycling in the two borough. Local authorities will be taking over responsibility for public health from the NHS from April 2013 and so this is an opportune time to bring cycling to the top of the agenda. By having this joint meeting with Southwark Cyclists we hope to show our strength and desire to see cycling valued and promoted.
As well as Ruth Wallis the meeting will also hear from Caroline Russell on the 20mph policy in Islington (all Islington operated roads in the borough have a 20mph speed limit – the first council in the country to introduce such a measure) as well as Laura Brannon from Guys and St Thomas Hospital on air pollution research they are carrying out.
This is a joint Lambeth and Southwark meeting: Monday 19 November 2012 6:30pm at Can Mezzanine, 32-36 Loman Street SE1 0EE (just off Great Suffolk Street, near Blackfriars Road), cycle parking nearby.
