Helen Pidd is our Walk Ride Tameside lead but we are looking for a volunteer to take over from her and build the group. If you are interested, contact her: helen.pidd@walkridegm.org.uk

The active travel officer is Michael Hughes: michael.hughes@tameside.gov.uk

The relevant executive councillor is Allison Gwynne: allison.gwynne@tameside.gov.uk

Tameside’s chief executive, Steven Pleasant, is a keen cyclist: Twitter @tmbc_chiefexec

Four strategic neighbourhood forums have been set up by the council to give residents a chance to meet their local councillors and share ideas/air grievances once every three months. We would like Walk Ride members to go to these meetings and advocate for better walking and cycling infrastructure:

There’s one for North Tameside (Ashton Hurst, Ashton St Michael’s, Ashton Waterloo and St Peters)

One for East (East Dukinfield, Mossley, Stalybridge North and Stalybridge South)

One for West (Audenshaw, Denton North East, Denton South, Denton West, Droylsden East and Droylsden West)

And one for South (Hyde Godley, Hyde Newton, Hyde Werneth and Longdendale)

Details of the meetings are available via those links.
