While we were waiting to hear whether the bid was successful, planning for a hub went on anyway.

Sun 7th Feb
Karen Chamberlain, LB Ass’t Head, arranged a planning meeting for Wed 24th Feb.

Wed 10th Feb
Ann spoke with Sheila Kelly, General Manager of Sports Action Zone @ Lillian Baylis Community Hub (on the old Lilian Baylis school site) who agrees to talk to the site manager to try to locate a space for the bike project.

Wed 10th February
Misha and I were invited to TfL

Thursday 11th February
We met TfL who told us our bid was the winning one!!! Misha asked me to lead on meeting the objectives set out in the bid. TfL emphasise the importance of recording the process and providing a toolkit for other boroughs. Modal shift towards cycling is a key intent for TfL.
