WORLD Car Free Day is being celebrated in West Ealing on Sunday (22) with a series of events.

The event encourages drivers to take a break from their vehicle for one day and highlights the many benefits of having less traffic throughout the neighbourhood.

There will be designated PlayStreets to give people a chance to bring a sense of community spirit to the whole street by closing it off to traffic for a short period.

It allows neighbours to mingle and run events and activities, and children to play on the road safely.

From 1-6pm at Dean Gardens and Leeland Terrace, Soundbite festival offers music, food, a craft market, climbing wall, children’s activities, donkey rides and a theatre performance.

Cllr Julian Bell, leader of Ealing Council, said: “Encouraging more people to walk, cycle and take public transport is vital as we look to improve air quality and to address the urgent need to address the climate emergency.

“I hope Car Free Day in Ealing will help people to explore other means of transport and leave their cars at home.”
