May see if I can afford a skive to wander into the centre for #MakeSundaysSpecial , today. Looks like it will be fun.
#MakesSundaysSpecial has city centre streets opened up to pedestrians but also a 2-mile loop for bikes, runners, skaters, boarders & walkers
Starting 11am, #MakeSundaysSpecial is all about opening up a few city centre streets to people, and giving them a rest from cars for the day
In a bid to 'Make Sundays Special', cars will be banned from some streets in Bristol. It's the vision of the city's Mayor George Ferguson who wants to make the area a more pleasant place to be.
