Low Traffic Neighbourhood Update 24.06.22

Update by the Low Traffic Neighbourhood Team.

Community Influencers

Our Community Influencers programme, in partnership with local cycling organisation Peddle My Wheels, is underway. The first handful of successful applicants have received their free bike, with maintenance lessons and cycle training to follow shortly. Over the coming year, the Influencers will be using their links in local Lambeth communities to encourage an uptake in cycling, especially amongst under-represented groups. You can follow their progress on PMW's Twitter page. You can also find out more about the project here, there are still spaces on the programme so check it out!

Beat The Street

Beat the Street Lambeth has been commissioned by Lambeth Borough Council with support from the National Lottery via Sport England. It is being delivered by Intelligent Health. The game aims to get communities to get active and explore the local area.

Children use a card and map which will be provided by participating primary schools, and adults can pick up a free card from one of the distribution points listed on the Beat the Street Lambeth website.

Players then find their nearest "Beat Box" which will appear on lampposts around the borough. There are 136 of these contactless sensors– once the game is underway, simply hover your card over the Beat Box and it will beep and flash to record your points. Your first visit to a Beat Box registers the journey; then walk, cycle or roll to the next Beat Box within an hour to score 10 points.

The game runs from the 22 June to 3 August.
