Campaign Questionairre

Space for Cycling Ward Ask Survey

As many of you may have seen, our survey is now live and we are encouraging all members and supporters to take part. It is accessible here: www.lcc.org.uk/2014survey This survey asks people what specific cycling actions/asks they’d like to see in their local area, and asks people for their main concerns in relation to the 6 policy themes of the campaign – this could be in relation to where they live, where they work or study, or on their commute.

Please do encourage friends and family to take part. You don’t have to be a cyclist, obviously, we are keen to hear the views of a wide range of people. The more input we can get, the more representative the campaign demands will be. If you complete the survey, you’re in with a chance to win a brand new Pinnacle bike!

Space for Cycling Campaign Organisers – Looking for volunteers in Enfield

The recent cycling deaths show more than ever that we need London’s decision-makers to make our streets safe and inviting for everyone to cycle.

In May next year, London re-elects its local councillors, and they, more than anyone else, have the power to make our local streets more cycle-friendly.

In order to put pressure on our local councils, we’re recruiting Space for Cycling Campaign Organisers, committed volunteers in every borough who’ll give a few hours each week between January and May to help make our Space for Cycling campaign a success in their neighbourhood.

Find out more about our campaign and being a campaign organiser.

Do you have the passion, time and the energy to do some or all of the following to help make London better for everyone to cycle?

  • Putting into action our campaign activities
  • Being creative about getting publicity
  • Handing out leaflets to the public
  • Coordinating other local volunteers
  • Approaching local election candidates
  • Using Twitter and Facebook
  • Organising local events

If you do, please contact us today getinvolved@lcc.org.uk

We’re also looking for volunteers to help our Campaign Organisers – perhaps you don’t have the time to devote to being an organiser, but you still want to be help improve your local area for cycling?

To fulfil any of these roles, you don’t need to be an LCC member or an experienced campaigner. There’ll be lots of support from our staff and local group members and we’ll give you some top tips and guidance to get you campaigning successfully!

NOMINATIONS FOR POLICY FORUM

Want to be involved in shaping our future policy? We’re looking for an Enfield member to join the LCC Policy Forum. You’ll need to nominate yourself (or be nominated by your local LCC group) before Christmas, for the elections in January.
