EFTAG are delighted that the Chigwell Residents’ Association, with the support of the Parish Council, are installing cycle parking in several parts of the parish. Phase 1 is a set of five stands at Chigwell Station (where there is currently no cycle parking), to be installed in the second half of April. Money from Essex County Council wasn’t quite enough, so it was great to see the Parish Council (on March 25th) ’seal the deal’ by unanimously agreeing to make up the shortfall. Many councillors spoke of the importance of encouraging more people to use bikes, and the meeting was reminded by Councillor Alan Lion of Chigwell’s recent declaration of a climate emergency. Go Chigwell!
