COULD you help a town enjoy a car free weekend?

If so, Transition Town Berkhamsted wants to hear from you.

The sustainability group, which covers the town and surrounding villages, is organising the event - which takes place from Friday to Saturday, September 16 to 18.

Individuals and groups in the area will be encouraged to use their cars as little as possible during that time.

Group member Keith Holmes said the weekend will show people the benefits of using their car less.

He said: “It will increase the belief we can reduce our use of cars permanently, and give people the will to do so.”

He wants businesses from the area to encourage staff to use their cars less during the weekend, and is considering awarding those that do the best job.

Call him on 07947 140108 if you want to take part.
