CycleWIGHT AGM 29th November
We had over 40 people come to the AGM on Friday 29th November. It was great to see so many new members come along. Four of the candidates for the election attended. There were really good presentations by Chris Gregory of 'A to there' and Richard Lewis from 'Active Planning' showing what is possible with the correct support. Richard led an exercise that encouraged our members to look at maps of Newport and seek solutions to travelling across and through the town. Amazingly people did come up with fresh ideas even though, as a committee, we had looked at this on so may occasions. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Richard then commented on the ideas using his expertise gleaned from travelling in the Uk and abroad. Earlier in the day members of the committee and invited guests had walked around Newport, with Richard looking at issues for cyclists and pedestrians. We hope progress made in Newport will be able to be used in other places around the Island.
