Cycling Scotland – Community Programme Information Session

Online event
Hosted by Cycling Scotland in partnership with Eco-Congregation Scotland

If you and your church would like to help make cycling more accessible in your community, then join us for this free online information session. We have partnered with Cycling Scotland to provide a unique opportunity to hear more about funding that could support cycling facilities for your congregation. 

Sandra Lavergne, Cycling Scotland’s development officer for communities, will provide information on the Cycling Friendly Community programme and on the support that constituted community groups in Scotland can benefit from to reduce barriers to cycling in the community.

The session will outline current funding opportunities and include key examples of successful community projects which have benefitted from the programme.

Wednesday 1st February 7.30pm – 8.30pm (Zoom)
