Cambridge Labour Parliamentary Candidate Daniel Zeichner is backing the National Walk to Work Week starting next Monday – and will be monitoring his progress with a Living Streets pedometer. Mr Zeichner says that the often sterile debate in Cambridge about cyclists versus motorists means that the needs of pedestrians are too often overlooked:

“I drive, I take the bus, I ride a bike and I use the train – but most of all, I walk. My grandfather was a race-walker who used to walk from Shepreth to North London to visit his parents at weekends! There are powerful voices in Cambridge for cyclists and for motorists, but it is time for the voice of the overwhelming majority who are pedestrians to be heard. Cambridge isn’t  particularly pedestrian-friendly – there is too little seating in public spaces, and some is in poor repair. It is often unclear who is entitled to go where and when in some of the colleges. I hope people will respond positively to National Walk to Work Week as we build pressure to make Cambridge a better place for pedestrians.”

First it was the Shadow Foreign Secretary, then the Leader, now the Shadow Chancellor – three of Labour’s top politicians have been in Cambridge in the last fortnight to back Labour’s local election campaign. Ed Balls was in the city today, meeting shoppers and voters, and talking to people involved at the sharp end of job creation. In a 45 minute meeting hosted by Future Business, Ed heard from social enterprises, voluntary organisations and academics about the problems facing local business start-ups. He heard how small organisations struggle with bureaucracy and how others have moved from reliance on grant-funding to self-sufficiency through imaginative investment moves.
