Our fifteenth annual Burns Night supper and dance on 22nd January raised a superb £1450, which we will be splitting between LCC’s No More Lethal Lorries Campaign and our local campaign funds. See the Burns Night page for a write-up, thanks, and links to great photos by Chas Wilshere of the Pressmen.

Key points in the No More Lethal Lorries campaign are: cyclist-awareness training for drivers; driver responsibility; safer lorry design; higher standards from lorry operators; and more responsible procurement. The need to reduce danger from lorries was emphasised again this week when a flatbed truck ran over a young man riding a bicycle in Dalston.
