It might not have been sunny but it didn’t rain at this year’s Hanwell Carnival in West London. London Readymix had a stand and organised a truck to support the Ealing branch of London Cycling Campaign, both of which were in Elthorne Park, along with fun rides, local arts and crafts, refreshments and much more.
“It was a great event and the truck certainly caused a lot of excitement amongst both cyclists and non-cyclists alike. As well as talking to cyclists about not going into the potential ‘blind’ areas we were able to chat to people about not stepping out close to HGVs as drivers may not see them,” comments Liz Young, Communications Department. During the afternoon Liz, Sharon Baker and Jamie Izzo (both from London Readymix) and the driver from Moriarty’s, gave out over 500 water bottles, a similar number of children’s high vis vests, slap bands and leaflets all promoting road and cyclist safety.
