Susan van der Ven Cycleway Talk and Fish and Chip Supper

10th September 2017 by Phil Comments Off on Susan van der Ven Cycleway Talk and Fish and Chip Supper

On Thursday, October the 19th, popular local County Councillor Susan van der Ven will speak about The Royston-Melbourn Pedestrian/Cycle Link: Cracking and Connecting the County Border at Coombes Community Centre, Burns Road, Royston, SG8 5PT, from 8pm-9:30pm. Please contact Carol on for tickets, or see the event’s page on Eventbrite (follow that link).

Separated by an administrative county border, Royston and Melbourn sit in close proximity and share a great deal of travel to and fro. A safe off-road connection for walkers, cyclists and mobility scooters would be transformative to daily life.

In 2013 the A10 Corridor Cycling Campaign was formed to create a Cambridge-Royston cycle route, with huge support from Royston residents. Even in the age of austerity, most of the route has now been funded or built – with the final stretch to Royston in sight. Key to success is total collaboration, and persuading the funders to see beyond administrative domains to a common cause.

The talk will be accompanied by a fish and chip, chicken and chips, or veggie burger and chips supper. Please email your choice to or we will be unable to provide you with food on the night.

A10 Safer Cycling

27th May 2013 by Phil Comments Off on A10 Safer Cycling

Royston Lib Dem members were pleased to be able to support the A10 Safer Cycling campaign on the 19th of May. Contrary to expectation, John Ledden and Caroline Coates actually made it from Royston Station to Phillimore’s Garden Centre. That’s them in the picture here; the two folk not in Lycra at the right hand side. That so many people turned out is an indication of how much improvements for cyclists are needed.

Well done to the campaign group who put everything in place with a very light touch, but very effectively. It was a very pleasant trip and hopefully will serve a purpose. More info and ideas for next steps can be found at
