Car Free Day 2022

Car Free Day 2022

Be part of Guildford's celebration of Car Free Day on Sunday 25 September as they put pedestrians first in the town centre.

The town centre will be transformed from 10am - 4.30pm with market stalls, street food, live music and street play for children. There will also be lots of information about how residents can do their bit to help tackle climate change.

Lead Councillor for Climate Change Cllr Cait Taylor, said:

"It's really important that we start thinking about the bigger picture. About how we tackle climate change, and the individual roles we all play.

"Although this is one day, and won't fix the pollution issues we have, I want people to use this day as a catalyst. By leaving our cars at home, we may find that it's easier and better for both the environment and our health, to use alternative forms of transport. So I encourage everyone to come and join us in Guildford for a taste of a better future. Remember to bring your reusable bags and water bottle!"

Ward Councillor for Holy Trinity, Cllr Maddy Redpath, said:

"This exciting day is a chance to show people what our town centre could be like without cars.

"Reducing our car use is so beneficial for our bodies and for our planet. We are committed to becoming a net-zero carbon borough by 2030. Making journeys without our cars can be more convenient than a lot of us first think.

"Car Free Day is going to be a lot of fun whilst showing us all what a more pedestrianised town centre would be like. So, leave your car at home. Walk, cycle, skate or grab a bus or train and come to the town centre for an enjoyable, traffic free day."
