Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’. The 2017 event will take place from Saturday 10 through to Sunday 18 June.

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK, whether this be for fun, as a means of getting around to work or school, the local shops or just to visit friends. For more information check out the Bike Week website.

Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK – and this year it’s taking place from the Thu 1 to Wed 7 June 2017. It’s an opportunity for everyone to say a huge thank you to all the volunteers that make the world a better place.

Here at DRCET we involve volunteers in all the work that we do including workshop mechanism and assistants, community clean up assistants, Neighbourhood Improvement Volunteers (NIVs) and community cycling champions.

We also want to recruit volunteers across each of the community council areas we cover (Scotstoun, Whiteinch, Yoker, Thornwood, Knightswood, Jordanhill and Broomhill) to promote a range of environmentally friendly actions from recycling to picking up litter – you’ll lead the way and encourage others to join in.

We’re also looking for local people to join our Board – so if you are interested in improving the local area and would like to help develop DRCET then we’d like to hear from you.

You can contact Sarah on sarah@dumbartonroad.com for more information.
