At Better Bankside we are always looking at way to innovate, and improve our area. The high levels of pollutants and ‘dust’ produced by motor vehicles including delivery vans, are a real problem in the area, so to solve this we are launching a trial of the UK’s first cycle freight vehicle from October to December.
The vehicle will also help local cafés, bars and restaurants to make local deliveries to businesses for breakfast and lunch times, as well as for corporate catering. The vehicle will also be used to assist the new Bankside Gardening apprentice collect used coffee grounds to be recycled for compost.
How to get involved:
· We are looking for both retailers and businesses to consider using the vehicle for deliveries.
· We are looking for advertising to help underwrite the cost of the trial – which while low do need to be covered. The vehicle being the First in the UK will get a good level of coverage and surely beats advertising in a newspaper!
· We are looking for ‘drivers’ of the vehicle – if you’re interested get in touch.
