  1. I think it is a brand, but not a commercial brand?
  2. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/li-yorkshire-humber-branch-agm-2023-tickets-565154411057?aff=Vista&_cldee=0GBAdV_dXrAweapFh6DlKVUbUGzXVyQYy9dUuBJBNJk3Qg4cj6X3uncRF-ILFG0X&recipientid=contact-29ce4054eb4de811a8a90022480173bb-b2e555f8b5914b78ae89c917c2f4d233&esid=cdceccd3-e9da-ed11-a7c6-6045bdd0ef48 LI Yorkshire & Humber Branch AGM 2023 Weds 26th April 2023, University of Sheffield This year the LIYH is holding their AGM at the University of Sheffield, with a talk from guest speaker Giacomo Guzzon.

Nominations will be announced at the AGM. Non-committee roles and branch volunteers In addition to our committees, many non-committee volunteers give their support to the work of their local branch. These roles don't form part of the committee, and don't require an election process. Please contact your LI branch if you'd like to support them as a volunteer. @Elizabeth Blackledge
  3. LI Connect is not being promoted by the LI, no link on the website or in Vista. I bet some people don't know it exists, and it's very hard to engage with. I've tried to sign up to be notified of new content but that seems hit and miss; I haven't been notified of this post just stumbled upon it when signing in for another reason. Completely agree about branches needing to be able to email members - their hands are behind their backs at the moment. I understand we have to think about GDPR, but surely 'opting in' to the LI should be enough to opt you in to local branch comms automatically, the local branches are one of the benefits to membership. At present, hardworking volunteers are being asked to jump through more hoops than necessary, and their work is less rewarding because they can't get in touch with the majority of their membership! LI central needs to cut some red tape and trust branch committees with their own email lists. @Jane Findlay @Ruhela Begum @Paul Lincoln @Elizabeth Blackledge @Ahlyah Ali @Benjamin Brown I tried to tag to tag Sue Morgan and Noel Farrar, also various of the relevant LI staff team, who don't appear to be on here, which is telling.
  4. Sounds great - afraid I'm away on holiday but hope you get plenty of volunteers. Do post on LinkedIn, I think more people see that (I thought I'd signed up for LI Connect alerts but haven't been notified of this post...)
  5. No reply from the LI team, perhaps they too struggle to find it/be notified?! Might we be better giving up and creating closed/moderated LinkedIn groups? @Abi Palmer-Greenwood @Paul Lincoln @Louis Varley @Yvonne Matthews @Ahlyah Ali
  6. Thanks Graham, Yes there is a TRO, but it is a NCN route, so we do expect cyclists to need to negotiate the route. We suggested both reflective paint, and applying some sort of 'attached reflectors', but unfortunately the traffic engineers said 'we don’t think either of the options are appropriate in the adopted highway in this situation on their own. Drivers need a certain level of consistency in order to identify hazards and these might possibly just confuse drivers'.
  7. Hi all, Hoping someone might have knowledge of a precedent they can direct me to? We've been involved in a project to formalise a road closure, on a minor road which has been temporarily closed using large concrete blocks (and no bollards) for over a year. We have sourced large blocks of local stone, which have been placed in the road to act as a barrier. The highways team are now nervous that somebody will drive into them in the dark, and are insisting that we should put bollards in front of them as well, which we're not keen on because the intention was to try and reduce clutter and have a more attractive 'road closure'. They are rejecting suggestions that we could use reflective paint on the stones e.g. https://glowtec.co.uk/reflective-paint/ I'm hoping if we can point to a precedent where something similar has been done it might help to convince them, but nothing springing to mind - does anyone know of such an intervention please?
  8. Hello, trying to find LI connect forum, having had a mind blank and temporarily forgotten its name, was nigh-on impossible. Hard to expect members to engage with it if it's so poorly advertised. I had expected it to be available via a link on the LI homepage, and certainly on my member page once I'd logged in, and on LI Campus, and in the Vista email somewhere, but I couldn't see a link to it anywhere, and had to remember its name and then find an old LI Connect email to follow the link. Please advertise it better to members, and provide links from the websites where one would expect to find it?

  12. Hi all, I've added this as 'an event', but not sure yet how best to use this forum and who gets notified of what, so thought I'd post here too, I think p2c students might get a lot out of it... Join NFM Charity Slow The Flow on Wednesday 17th August 6-9pm for an informative evening with experts on Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). Guest speakers will showcase inspirational landscape from our region and abroad, as well as give updates on plans and support for SuDS available locally. There will be a Q+A session, where you can bring your questions for the panel. We’ll also have drinks and nibbles, networking, a chance to look at the exhibition, and will be handing out the fabulous prizes for our quiz, to celebrate the fantastic summer we’ve had with our touring roadshow! Please get a FREE eventbrite ticket at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/slowing-the-flow-in-towns-tickets-386984379697?aff=ebdsoporgprofile, so that we can get catering numbers right. And of course please share with anyone you think might be interested!
  13. Hi Antonella, as noted elsewhere, making it easier to 'follow' the forum and be notified of new content should improve engagement? I had tried to follow all discussions, but have not been notified of this post, for example.
  14. Hello, I've only just spotted this discussion, because 'Connect' isn't easy to follow threads on. It's annoying in the same way that TL used to be, you can't easily just follow everything, and if new topics are added it doesn't notify you, so you have to find out they're there in order to follow... It would be very helpful to have a 'follow all new discussions' button. It would also be good to advertise this forum better e.g. in Vista - maybe note 'recent discussions' etc to encourage more participation?

  18. Thanks Graham - have you tried parking in one, is this a comfortable length? And does the width feel over generous, given that in the 'kerbside' situation there are no parked cars either side, or do you feel 2.4m width is necessary?
  19. Thanks Michael - yes I saw this too and was impressed by it. I am a trustee at Slow The Flow and have sent on to our education trustees to see if we can do something similar! STF is soon to launch a curriculum-aligned set of materials to do with NFM for our local schools in Calderdale - if that's a success we will look into rolling out for wider use, I'll post here if that happens. In the meantime, a lot of the info on our website is accessible, engaging, and freely downloadable (with credit please). Flooding / NFM and SuDS specific, rather than climate change generally though: https://slowtheflow.net/introduction-to-natural-flood-management/, https://slowtheflow.net/you-can-slow-the-flow/
  20. Thanks for your reply Lewis. I'd found the same, only specifics seem to be for 'Blue Badge' spaces, and what there is, is dated. I agree, we try to specify 5x2.5m spaces for normal bays, cars are getting bigger... The question was specifically about 'kerbside' spaces really, and what dimensions anyone has found to work well for those - you need a longer space for parking on-street, to manoeuvre in, but how much longer?!
  21. Hello, I'm trying to find some recent guidance for size (in particular, length) of normal kerbside parking bays and struggling! Hoping someone here might just have it at their fingertips please? I've found in a couple of places that disabled bays should be 6.6m long, but what about normal 'parallel' bays? Seen 6.1m in an old (1999) AJ Metric handbook, but is that too short nowadays? We want to be sensible but not over generous (it's a scheme about encouraging walking and cycling really). 1.8m width seems to pop up in a few places, so we'll assume that. If anyone has a definitive and recent reference, please share!
  22. I agree - but can't take credit, it's @Simon Odell's idea above!
  23. The Floriade is a traditional 2B pilgrimage... if anyone wants to organise a coach tour for us, I expect we'd be in! https://www.2bconsultancy.co.uk/2b-blog.php?pid=22&p=&search=floriade&topic=#blt
  24. Thanks Antonella, notifications of when I should have had an email sounds helpful, then I can check spam etc.
  25. Hello LIYHB members! Has there been a recent newsletter? I've updated my preferences a few weeks ago now, but feeling unsure I'm getting the emails...
