Calling all cyclists – don’t forget to vote for Sustrans’ Connect2 in the People’s £50 Million Lottery Giveaway.
Connect2 is a UK-wide project that aims to improve local travel in 79 communities by creating new walking and cycling routes for those everyday journeys. In terms of south west Wales, this would mean valuable funding for improving the cycle link at Afon Tawe bridge, Clydach and Gowerton, Penclawdd and Crofty. There are many similar projects throughout Wales.
So PLEASE vote now and help improve the already amazing cycle paths and routes in Wales.
I had a pleasant surprise today to see that this very blog had been given a mention on the British Heart Foundation blog – as a result of my ramblings about the Swansea Santa jog.
You can read the article for yourself here, but better still why not take part in one of the many BHF events and raise some money for a worthy cause.
I’m glad to report that DDWT Junior returned to school today and although he’s not back to his normal 100% self – he asked to go himself! It does seem however that lots of his classmates are suffering with similar illnesses as the class number has dwindled to less than 10 this week.
We took the opportunity this morning to see how tall the little fella is now as well – partly because he also seems to be displayed the classic symptoms of growing pains. Anyway he now stands at 107.5 cm or 3ft 6′ – which seems to me to be quite tall for someone who is 46 months old. But what do I know.
