Thanks to everyone who has signed and shared the campaign so far - almost 200 signatures already and we haven’t really had to try yet which just serves to highlight the appetite for making cycling and walking in Ashford a viable alternative to day-to-day car travel. Keep up the good work and please keep sharing.
I’ve now added a Facebook page so that I’m able to run paid promotions to increase the reach of the campaign to local people. As I’ve also received messages from people interested in starting a longer term cycling campaign group for Ashford beyond this campaign we can also use the page for this purpose if that plan develops. So please do like the page ‘Cyclists and Pedestrians Ashford’ to receive updates on this and any other similar campaigns we might run later on.
In response to a few questions from people in Tenterden I’ve tweaked the wording of the petition to try and make clear this campaign is intended to cover the whole Borough and not just just Ashford town.
