Speaker: Cllr Geoff Hill, Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead


The Thames Valley great is delighted to welcome Councillor Geoff Hill who is Deputy Leader Local Independents and Cabinet member for Highways and Transport, Customer Service Centre and Employment.


Councillor Hill will provide an update & a presentation on the new Maidenhead cycle routes now the public consultants are fully completed with settled designs.

Cyclists in Maidenhead now have a dedicated new 1.3km cycle route, making healthy active travel across the town safer and more convenient, thanks to the completion of the £2.8m Missing Links route. 

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead has constructed the new route in phases, with the final part focused on upgraded paths, a new bridge, landscaping, and signs at Town Moor. The whole route connects current and future residential areas in the north with the town centre and railway station to the south. Pedestrians can also use it.


The overall scheme, mostly funded by government’s Local Growth Fund through the Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), includes improvements at a number of key locations to help people transition to cycling or walking for shorter journeys, supporting the council’s work to tackle climate change. 

The council would like the route to be adopted into the National Cycle Network in due course.

We know many businesses are struggling to recruit people with the right skills.

Working with schools, special schools and colleges is a proven way of developing young people’s skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

That’s why Generation Logistics is working with The Careers & Enterprise Company on the launch of their new free self-assessment framework: Employer Standards. The framework enables businesses to understand what good careers education outreach looks like. Employers who have already completed the Employer Standards say it is helping them develop talent pipelines, close skills gaps, increase diversity and attract job and apprenticeship applicants.

This joint webinar with the Careers & Enterprise Company, there will be an opportunity to hear from employers about how it has benefited their businesses. We will show you how to use the tool and demonstrate how it will benefit your business.

Once you have signed-up for the webinar, please register to use the Employer Standards tool. 

The Careers & Enterprise Company is the national body for careers education in England, supporting schools and colleges to deliver modern, 21st century careers education. Their mission is to help every young person find their best next step.

It coincides with the 80th anniversary of the Association’s inception in 1944, and includes an ambitious programme of 80 site visits across the UK by Clare, whose aim is to showcase the high tech, fast-moving working environ-ments inside UK’s warehouses.
