There's us, of course. We're the Barnsbury & St Mary's group for #lowtrafficislington, and our mission statement is to make public the huge support that exists for the Council's implementation of People Friendly Streets in Barnsbury and St Mary's. Catch up with us on Twitter.

The Council's goal is: bring life back to Islington's streets. Taking the best of what we have learnt, to make things safer, healthier, greener and fairer for everyone.

Check out the Council's People Friendly Streets page for more information.
