Lambeth Cyclists meeting this evening 7:30pm Stockwell

We hope you can join us this evening, Tuesday 17 May 2016, for our monthly meeting 7:30pm at the Stockwell Community Centre, Studley Road, Stockwell SW4.

At the meeting we will be looking at the latest developments in the borough for cycling.

Lambeth Cyclists logo on lambethcyclists.org.ukAs you may have seen on Saturday the latest stage of the Stockwell one-way system transformation opened with new two-way working on the roads - we will be reflecting on this and looking at the next steps.

We will also be looking at moves by Guys and St Thomas Hospital to place restrictions on the new design for the cycle path on Westminster Bridge and will be thinking about ways in which we can work with the new Mayor of London and our new Lambeth and Southwark London Assembly Member to make things better for cycling.

We will hearing updates on developments (or lack of) on Estreham Road, New Park Road, the cycle superhighways, rides planned, the floral ride and much much else.

At this meeting we will also be looking forward to our annual meeting which will take place next month, Tuesday 21 June 2016, where we will be electing a new management committee for Lambeth Cyclists to take the organisation forward over the next year. We are on the look out for Management Committee members. We have lots of stuff we want to do but need people to take it forward!

Wanted communications person or people- good with twitter, websites and newsletters?
One position in particular we need to fill is that of communications person who is responsible for writing the quarterly newsletter sent out with London Cyclist magazine as well as producing regular email newsletters, maintaining and developing the website and overseeing our social media presence. These tasks are not too onerous but are important as they maintain our public face to the world. If you have experience of these or are interested in communications consider putting yourself forward.

The communications role is the one of the posts on the Management Committee, other committee members oversee our work with the politicians and policy makers in Lambeth, our rides, events and our general engagement with local people, the council, the Mayor of London and others who all impact on cycling in Lambeth. The time commitment required for these roles is not great -we tend to have an extra meeting in a pub a week before the main meeting to go over various matters and think things through before the main meeting- but apart from that you can get as involved as much or as little as you want.

The meeting takes place on Tuesday 17 May 2016  7:30-9pm at the Stockwell Community Centre, 1 Studley Road, Stockwell SW4 (behind Stockwell tube station: lots of cycle parking available) 

We hope to see you there!
