Get Across campaign is getting cross


Are you interested in helping the campaign to Get Across the Harbour Bridge by bike or on foot? Here is the request for help Grey Lynn 2030 has been sent.

Greetings GetAcross supporters,

Thanks to all who completed our survey (over 2,000 of you did). The key result was 75% saying “yes” to a demonstration march if the NZ Transport Agency do not allow Mike Lee’s idea of a trial on the Bridge.
True to form, the NZTA dismissed the idea, so it’s time to get our marching boots ready!   We’re planning the demonstration march for Sunday morning 9am, May 3rd, 2009, starting at the Westhaven end of the Bridge.

Can you help make it happen?
Come along to a preparation meeting on March 31st, 7:30pm until 9pm at the Main Hall, Freemans Bay Community Centre (52 Hepburn Street, Ponsonby).

We need volunteers to help with:
Press releases and media
Flyer design and distribution
Liaison for other organisations (Eg: Greenpeace, Green party, etc)
General administration and tasks

Also you could make a small donation to help with costs (printing, meeting room hire, etc.) by internet banking to the GetAcross bank a/c: 12-3057-0824362-01 (Walk Auckland, ASB Wyndam Street)
