The competition is open to anyone who attends a BikeSafe-London or ScooterSafe-London Rider Skills Day and completes a short questionnaire based on the assessment. The prizes, worth around £20,000, have been provided to TfL by the MCI at no cost to the taxpayer.
NE: Natural England is running a full series of ‘clinics’ for land agents to discuss Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) Farm Environment Plan (FEP) proposals.

Agents are being invited to submit additional proposals for consideration at the clinics.
Each session will also provide an opportunity to discuss the new 3-Tier HLS process, that was introduced on 1 July 2011 to help speed up application preparation and processing times.
