Participation 2014

The participant is committed to:

Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
Actions relative to the theme:
We have arranged a series of led walks to encourage citizens to see parts of their local area outside their usual route and make available a series of self-led walks on our website. A main street in Southwark, Bermondsey Street will be closed for the annual street festival and will have a Dr Bike. The council's pool bike scheme will be publicised to staff at key buildings.
