Support Local through Active Travel
Did you know? Using active travel to get around can help to support local businesses and enhance community life.
By walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling around our borough, you can explore your local area in ways that you may not be able to in the car.
Local businesses such as shops, cafes, and markets can really benefit from ‘foot traffic’. Walking, wheeling, scooting and cycling also helps you to explore your area more closely. You might find green spaces, sightseeing spots or cool cafes you didn’t know existed before!
When you use active travel to get to local events and days out, you don’t have to worry about your parking ticket running out. You can enjoy your day to the full and interact with others in your community!
Active travel doesn’t only benefit the community, it contributes to a greener community for all. How many times have you hopped in the car to go to a supermarket? Next time, consider visiting one of your local shops instead (Bike panniers are great for carrying shopping home) - support the local economy and the planet!
