Getting ready for Clean Air Day in Kenilworth

Leamington Editorial 30th May, 2024   0

RAISING awareness of air quality will be the aim of the day in Kenilworth.

The town hosts its first Clean Air Day event on Sunday June 16 to highlight the importance of air quality for both people’s health and the environment.

Taking place from 10am to 3pm at Abbey End, the family-friendly event will include free bike hire, including adapted bikes, music from pedal-powered band Chaos, who will also offer the chance to take part in a lightbulb challenge by generating electricity through pedalling, together with food and refreshments from local businesses

The day will also include a traffic-free one-mile active travel loop which will set off from Abbey End at 11am. The loop encourages everyone to walk, wheel, cycle, or scoot along the route, promoting the positive effects of active travel for both physical and mental wellbeing, and air quality.




Town councillor Zoe Leventhal, one of the organisers of the event alongside Coun Alison Insley, said: “I’m really excited for Kenilworth’s first of hopefully many Clean Air Day events.

“We’ll have plenty of information stalls on improving air quality and lots of support available for people looking to take that first step with active travel. You can buy a second-hand bike from The Cycle Recycler, learn some new cycle skills from Cycle Infinity and then try them out on our active travel loop, all in one day!”


Coun Insley added: “This is a low carbon event, with no single use plastic so we’re encouraging residents to bring their own water bottle to refill at our free water stations and bring a reusable cup for any hot drinks!
