Ide community walk to school

There was a great turn out for the first accompanied walk from Ide to West Exe school. A big Thank you to Chloe Fox and other Staff, students, parents and All others who supported it.The purpose is

  • To raise awareness that this road is no motor vehicles except for access at all times.
  • Teach the students to ride and walk defensively, and encourage them to walk and not be driven.
  • Record any drivers who are rude, aggressive or antisocial.

It was great to be able to use this road safely this morning, and to promote this beautiful route which is being used each year by more and more illegal traffic trying to bypass congestion on the main roads. If we lose these lanes as safe cycle and pedestrian routes, Ide will become cut off as an island community accessible only by car. That is not the future we want for our village or our expanding city and it is not the way to respond to climate emergency declarations.
