We hope everyone is well and enjoying moments of sun! Or at least, sheltering from the heat.
This week, Kevin had an illuminating chat with Alex, who has lived in Barnsbury for decades. We hear concerns that Islington's elderly and less mobile residents will suffer when People Friendly Streets are implemented - nothing could be further from the truth! Alex tells us why:
And as promised in our last newsletter, we have published facts and evidence to dispel this and other myths and concerns about People Friendly Streets (aka Mythbusters). Please feel free to use this to shout about the benefits of People Friendly Streets and your support of the Council's decisive stance, on twitter, Nextdoor and other social media.
Our Canonbury neighbours are fully up and running on their People Friendly Streets campaign. Check out their great website: www.canonbury2020.org.uk and we encourage you to email them if you want to help with the Canonbury campaign.
As ever, let us know what else you want to hear about, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All our best
Barnsbury & St Mary's Neighbourhood Group
