Managers, staff and tenants at a Sheffield business centre are planning to become leaner and greener with the help of sustainable transport initiative ‘Inmotion!’
More than 30 staff have signed up to explore greener ways of getting to work after 18 businesses at Aizlewood’s Mill, close to Sheffield city centre, attended an Inmotion! event.
Some are giving cycling a try, with the help of cycling support service Sheffield Cycleboost, cycle training specialists Pedal Ready and ReCycle Bikes, which also sells refurbished second hand bicycles.
Others, like business centre manager Cath Beatty, have opted for a combination of walking and public transport.
“I decided to try walking into the office in the morning and then getting the bus home at the end of the day,” said Cath Beatty, who arranged the Inmotion! event.
“I really enjoyed the morning walk and knew the bus home meant I wouldn’t be late to collect the kids. It ticked two boxes for me.”
Laura Fish, from Inmotion! said the response from the Aizlewood’s Mill tenants had been one of the best the organisation had seen.
