 Spokes - "Reducing Car Use" category Winner 

"Meeting the winners at the LowCVP Annual Conference today, LowCVP Managing Director, Greg Archer, said: "The winners are engaged in projects that not only help reduce road transport emissions, but also provide wider community benefits, such as employment and training opportunities for young people."

"We are delighted to recognise and support the achievement of community organisations across the UK in helping to accelerate the shift to low carbon vehicles and fuels. The judges were hugely impressed by the creativity and originality on show."

The Energy Saving Trust Chief Executive Philip Sellwood said: "I have been delighted that the Energy Saving Trust and the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership have been able to jointly run the Transport Community Challenge.

" In judging the entries, I was impressed by both the quantity and quality of projects looking for support. The projects illustrated to me that there is a groundswell of support for low carbon transport at the community level. It is inspiring that there are such innovative thinkers out there with some great ideas on how to reduce transport carbon emissions."
