Enfield residents were encouraged to leave cars at home last Saturday and explore the borough's sights as part of World Car Free Day.

Street art in Edmonton

Designed to get more people visiting Enfield by foot or by bike, one of the exhibits included an animal-themed mural at the junction of Latymer Road and Church Street. The mural was jointly commissioned by Cycle Enfield and the RSPCA, which has a clinic in Edmonton, and is located opposite the entrance to Latymer All Saints Church of England Primary School.

Enfield Council's deputy leader, Daniel Anderson, said: "Car Free Day offers us all an opportunity to pause and reflect on the detrimental health impact of air pollution, but also to rediscover our neighbourhoods.

"Together with the mural, the works at this junction amply demonstrates the council’s ongoing commitment to create healthy streets which are safe and accessible, enabling residents to get around on foot and bike to experience the sights and sounds of our wonderful borough."
