Blackhall BikeBus!

So great to be part of the Blackhall BikeBus with Darcy! Well over 100 people on wheels - and not cars! Days like this are crucial to changing attitudes and reducing pollution.

Muirhouse Community Shed

Recently I had such an inspiring morning at Muirhouse Community Shed, learning about their work teaching nearly 200 members of the community, woodwork skills, climate literacy whilst tackling poor mental health and social isolation. They even let me have a go!
