The link below is to a survey asking Southport residents their opinion on a new renewable energy pilot scheme to tackle climate change. It takes 5 minutes - have your say on the future of our town!
Children who cycle arrive more relaxed, alert and ready start the day. And fewer car journeys means less congestion, less air pollution and less parking issues around the gate!
Sustrans are now up to the design phase of their project to improve our local area. Please find the details below of how you can get involved!
Following on from the success of the previous workshop across lockdown, the Sustrans Southport Liveable Neighbourhood project is moving onto the next stage of their project to improve our local area. This workshop will be inspired by ideas put forward from the last workshop - and our Year 5 pupils' workshop last term - to redesign Southport roads for the future.
Sustrans is holding its next online workshop on Saturday 20th March 10.30pm to 12.30pm.

Year 5 have teamed up with Sustrans Southport Neighbourhood Project to help improve our local area! We completed a fieldwork traffic survey in 4 areas around our school, then worked with a senior urban designer to suggest solutions to problems we found.
Our ideas are going to go into a plan that will be given to Sefton Council, so watch this space to see how we change Southport for the future!

Year 5 really enjoyed working on this project, and have put forward some incredible ideas!
Geography Fieldwork Year 6
In the classroom we made hypotheses (predictions) about what we would find on our fieldwork trip
What condition would the play area be in terms of litter, graffiti, vandalism and neglect?
Most of us hypothesised that the play area would be in good condition
What would the facilities be like in the park area in general?
Most of us hypothesised that the facilities would be good too
Would tourists have different views from residents?
Most of us thought yes. We thought that we tend to notice what is in our local area because we are used to it. We thought that tourists would notice more. If they came from more inner city, or run down areas they would probably be positive about the park: if they came from rural areas they might be less positive mad might notice any litter or graffiti more.
We will analyse our findings back at school and report upon them, evaluating our methods and making recommendations about the park.
