24.06.2012 PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Wednesday locals came flocking to the Cricket Club to discuss getting around safely in Jesmond, walking and cycling. The bike racks were parked up with thirty local people attending and keen to make their view heard.
Tony Waterston, Transition Jesmond, set the scene "Jesmond is ideal cycling territory but at present there is heavy traffic and no safe spaces for cyclists. So few children cycle to school, few ladies cycle to the shops and not many older gents cycle to work. We plan to change this.
