Sustainable Southville - Daisy Routes & Walking Champions

Over the years we have supported all sorts of projects to encourage walking, cycling and the use of public transport. These include

  • Installation of benches in the area, following consultation with local people (especially older people and disabled people) on ways in which local streets could be made more accessible to pedestrians.
  • Production of the Southville Cycle Map, organisation of guided cycle rides, provision of bursaries for cycling training, and establishment of a bike trailer loan scheme.
  • Set up an information point at the Southville Centre (including public transport services, walking routes and accessible resting places for older/disabled people).
  • Campaigns for improved bus services.
  • We have a bike lock for cyclists who arrive without one, to use in our covered bike rack.

One of our projects in 2015 was the Daisy Route - a green walkway where we invited people living along the route to Champion the project by putting up waymarkers, keeping pavements clear and creating gardens that inspire other people to join in and make BS3 an even nicer place to live.

There are still a few Daisies left for walls and pavements, so if you live along the route get in touch with us on info@southvillecentre.org.uk

Other walking routes are planned - such as the yet unnamed route between Southville School's main site on Stackpool Road and its new annexe on Myrtle Street. We are looking for Walking Champions on Milford Street, Fairfield Place, King William Street amongst others.
