Bury Local Links - free advice and activities on local active travel options targeted specifically for your organisation and what you can do to get involved

West Suffolk College Jobs Fair

We were pleased to take part in the recent West Suffolk College Jobs Fair. There were around 30 local employers at the event, looking to fill a wide variety of vacancies. We engaged with job seekers and employers who were aware of the need to identify active transport options, especially for people who did not have access to a car. This was for both travelling to new employment or for educational opportunities.

West Suffolk College Fresher's Fair

We are pleased to have attended the West Suffolk College Fresher's Fair. We engaged with over 300 students and staff to promote active travel to the College, whether it be for work for educational purposes.

The active travel options were all very popular with both staff and students, especially the Endeavour Card for the Buses in Bury St Edmunds. Read more

Active Commute to Work Case Study- Andrea Gillies

Andrea cycles or walks to work, and has noticed that a lot of cycle parking in Bury is getting busier.

She adds, "It's so much quicker for me and cheaper. I'm never late due to traffic and it's such a low impact commute that I don't feel tired once I get to work. I feel there is definitely a reduction in stress having not been sat in traffic." Read more

World Car Free Day

22nd September 2016
With over one billion road users around the globe, it sometimes feels as though we cannot escape the traffic, congestion and pollution.
One day a year is set aside to try to avoid using the car, and try an active method of travel instead.

Maglia Rosso Case Study

Maglia Rosso has taken advantage of the gap in the market in Bury St Edmunds, of not only having their own cycle shop, but having the added extras of a built in café, cycle maintenance and a 1 mile training circuit on the field next door.
Formally a derelict pub, Barry Denny (the owner) and his son took over the building two and a half years ago, turning it into a cycle shop. Barry states, "It's a very unique bike shop and country café. People can park up and then cycle outside of Maglia Rosso if they wish. We sell maps of cycle routes also which people can use."

Maglia Rosso are looking to get showers installed using the Travel Plan Grant Scheme. The scheme provides local organisations with up to 50% match funding towards the cost and installation of initatives to support healthier and greener travel. Read more
