Professor Stephen Peckham from the Centre for Health Services Studies at UKC was the guest speaker at the Spokes AGM on November 23. He gave a lively but alarming talk entitled Should we be worried about air quality? There were sobering facts on the effects of air pollution on health, particularly children, rising traffic volumes around Canterbury and the paucity of efficient air quality monitoring units around the city and Kent. The full text of his talk is on the Spokes website.
Steve Fawke stood down as Chairman after tirelessly guiding Spokes since 2009. His hard work was greatly appreciated and he will be a hard act to follow. At present his post is vacant and Spokes welcomes candidates. The Vice Chairman's post is now shared by Beatrice Shire and Paul Rees.
After a number of years, the vacant post of Ashford District Liaison has been filled and Spokes would like to welcome Rachael Carley. She is a Ride Leader for the British Cycling Breeze programme and a provisional National Cycle Instructor - email@example.com She is joined by Jonathan Hill, who recently returned to his native Kent, becomes the Canterbury District Liaison Officer - firstname.lastname@example.org
