We're on record as advocating walking as an alternative to causing pollution by driving. So we're planning to "walk the talk" on Clean Air Day Bishopston following our community call-out.
Our web site section on walking for health and clearer air in Bishopston says much more about this part of our project. As you'll see, we've helped map out some lovely local walks which enable you to appreciate our neighbourhoods better, get a bit fitter and make a small contribution to a healthier, cleaner air quality in Bishopston.
So on Thursday 21st June following the community call-out at 7pm, starting at Boston Tea Party, we're offering a repeat of a clean air walk. This will take in some of the boundaries of Bishopston, covering about 2 miles, and taking about an hour (followed maybe by a drink afterwards). [Kevin is this a full/accurate/adequate description??]
Those who join in will be guided safely around the route and will enjoy commentary on local landmarks. We might even talk about cleaner air as we go...
.....and don't worry, the route will avoid pollution hotspots like Gloucester Road, and in fact the experts say that pollution levels drop off within short distances of the traffic that causes it, so into the bargain you may find out more about the science behing pollution and the opportunities you have in future walks for enjoying cleaner air spots.
