together to work on Young Hackney's (Hackney Council) Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF) They are looking to win local government grant aid in order to carry out much needed repairs and servicing on all of CC Hackney's community loan bikes.

New trial for selected schools - Hackney Council in 2018:
"School streets is a pilot scheme where the road outside a number of
schools is closed to traffic at the schools' opening and closing times.
Closing the street to school traffic and through traffic helps to make a
safer, more pleasant environment for everyone while ensuring residents,
businesses, pedestrians and cyclists can still use the road."
