On Friday 15th March we had a superbly well attended coffee morning, at which the guest speaker was Paula Owen from GreenGumption who educated us all about the dangers to our children’s developing lungs of sitting in our car and leaving the engine running when we effectively at a standstill.

During the morning, we heard a lot about how the quality of air we breathe in London can be so affected by things such as engine idling – an unnecessary waste of fuel and a contributor to poor air quality. 

Everyone who attended had their awareness raised and we will start to think about how we can make a difference locally by talking to our own parents about their own idling habits as and when we see them.
