Fiona Coull: A big welcome to CRP’s new Healthy Streets Everyday Project Manager19th May 2020 / Posted by Joshua West
Fiona Coull joined CRP as the new Healthy Streets Everyday Project Manager in April 2020. Below she gives her thoughts on her experience of ‘starting virtually’ and getting stuck in to the Healthy Streets Everyday project.
I’ve really enjoyed my first few weeks at CRP and despite the fact I’ve never set foot in the office I already feel like I’m part of the team! Starting the position virtually has been an interesting experience, however I’ve been amazed at how smoothly the whole process has been. It has really highlighted how ways of working are changing and the benefits (and also resilience) that technology can provide.
Similarly, as we start to ease out of lockdown, the emphasis being placed on walking and cycling has proven how important programmes like Healthy Streets Everyday are. Helping partners to safely enable increases in sustainable and active travel and ensure that social distancing can be applied is not only beneficial for Londoners’ health and the economy, but also has significant environmental and air quality benefits.
I’m therefore really excited to use this opportunity to help partners make lasting and transformative change throughout London as part of Healthy Streets Everyday.
