At our meeting on 18th January Amy Stidworthy of CERC (Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants) gave a talk about air pollution and its measurement, harmful effects, etc. to inform our deliberations about what we might do next on this front. She included thoughts on air pollution in Ilkley particularly around the Brook St/Leeds Rd area.
World Car-Free day is 22nd September. The planned Grove Closure is subject to Bradford Council approval.
We think the event on 19th should involve input from right across CAI – it will be a chance to promote all our activities and campaigns to fellow townspeople. It should also be a great day!
(a) volunteers to help with advance planning and organising;
(b) volunteers to be marshals on the day itself;
(c) a volunteer to be official event organiser for the purposes of the application to Bradford Council. NB This does not entail actually doing all the organisation! – but it does need to be someone who could commit to being at the event on 19th and would be prepared to take formal responsibility on the day.Without sufficient volunteers, of course, we can’t go ahead. Please consider whether you could put yourself forward for one of these roles. Thank you!
