I got the answer late at night walking down the Nantwich Road. A gang of teenagers spilled out of a pub, and were walking towards us. Where I had lived, this usually was a Bad Thing, and I braced for trouble. Miraculously, they parted in front of us, smiled and said 'Hiya!'.
That was my defining memory of Crewe, and marked the moment that I decided to live in, and for, the town. People are nice, you just have to meet them. We are happiest when we feel social connection, and when people come out of cars, and onto the streets, buses and trains, they feel part of a community. Active travellers keep fit and healthy and make Crewe a better place to be, by reducing the traffic, air pollution and fuel debt that are choking our streets, our neighbours and our economy.
Thats why I support ACTive Crewe Travel, its good for you, and good for Crewe.
