You are invited to join us for the launch of Bristol Walking Alliance, 6.30-8.30pm on Tuesday 17th May 2016 in The Watershed (Waterside 3). The event is FREE but booking is required through Eventbrite.
This is a chance for local people, voluntary groups, policy makers, transport planners, urban designers and others with an interest in walking to consider ways to support and improve the pedestrian environment. Light refreshments will be available from 6.30pm, followed at 7.00pm by presentations from: Dr Suzanne Audrey, Senior Research Fellow in Public Health, University of Bristol; Dr Adrian Davis, Transport and Health Specialist, Bristol City Council; Jon Usher, West of England Programme Manager, Sustrans; and Ben Barker, Greater Bedminster Community Partnership.

From 8.00pm there will be a chance to talk informally about the walking environment in Bristol. For those who like to count their steps, Living Streets, will be providing free pedometers. The event will finish at 8.30pm. The event is part of Bristol Walk Fest 2016.
