      Square on Sunday was also noted for feedback to Transport for London.

      2. CYCLE MAINTENANCE WORKSHOP

      Funding for a cycle maintenance workshop project through TfL�s community
      grants cycle promotion scheme was being progressed. Feedback had been sought
      from the e-mail group on the project and a final draft of the application
      was being finalised by Janet for submission in July. Once funding was
      confirmed, the workshops would be announced.


      3. KINGS AVENUE PRIMARY SCHOOL

      Ian Callaghan, a teacher at the above school, attended the meeting to
      discuss the possibility of Lambeth Cyclists being involved with the school.
      He was keen to start a bike project that possibly involved cycle training,
      rides, and maintenance workshops. In summary:

      - Present cycle parking provision was poor.
      - Brixton Cycles had been contacted who had provided some accessories.
      - The school would match fund any funding raised elsewhere.
      - The importance of getting parents on board was noted.

      Action: Ch� to look into possibilities for project funding.
      Philip to ascertain possibilities for the school with Lambeth Transport.


      4. BRIXTON BICYCLE ART PROJECT

      Lamont� Johnson, a designer originally from the US, attended the meeting to
      introduce the Brixton Bicycle Art project. This was a series of workshops
      for young people (aged 15 to 19 years), based in Myatts Fields Estate, that
      taught them to renovate old bikes and used the creative abilities of the
      participants to decorate them with their designs. The aim was to provide a
      positive activity for young people and steer them away from crime, and to
      teach entrepreneurship. The project also involved Dr Bike sessions for bike
      maintenance.

      The project involved Cycle Training (UK) Ltd and community liaison Met
      Police officers, and had some support from Lambeth Council.

      Possible future projects Lamont� was considering was recycling of clothing,
      and bike clothing for women.

      Action: Lambeth Cyclists would keep in touch with the project for possible
      joint ventures in the future. (Philip to attend project open day on 2nd
      July.)


      5. CLAPHAM SCHOOLS

      A pilot family ride was discussed with Nigel that would possibly be within
      Clapham Common or go to Kennington Park. This was to initiate a structured
      cycle training regime with the three schools Nigel was involved with.

      Action: Ch�/ Philip arrange meeting with Lambeth Schools Travel Plan officer
      and possibly CTUK.


      6. LAMBETH COUNTRY SHOW
