a giant snakes & ladders game highlighting the issues of air
pollution and idling, and lots of mini games, car stickers
and leaflets to give away. Trained volunteers will talk to
pedestrians and motorists about the problems of idling, and
requesting politely that any idling motorists they come
across switch off their engines. Whether you’re a concerned
