September 2012
Victoria Pendleton signs the petition!
The campaign to set a 20mph speed limit was joined today by double Olympic gold medallist and local resident Victoria Pendleton. Ms Pendleton was signing autographs and posing for photos with fans at the Royles bikes store on Knutsford Road today. She agreed to add an extra signature to her load: our petition! Thanks Victoria, and "keep dancing"!
We also had a great chat to her partner Scott Gardner, sport scientist, who also posed for a photo with the 20s Plenty sticker.
Press release 29th September 2012

The Transition stall at the Artisan Market was another success with (20s) plenty more signatures. We enjoyed lots of healthy debate as well. Many agreed that there is no convincing argument for keeping the 30mph limit anywhere in the town so we look forward to having further discussions with local residents at all our future events.

We were priviledged to hear Rod King from the national 20s Plenty campaign speak in June as he provided us with all the arguments for adopting 20mph as the default speed limit in Wilmslow. The turnout included local politicians and concerned residents.

See our Facts and Briefings page to see just a few of the points made.
