2017 ended on a highly positive note for Cycle North Cheshire (CNC) when it met with its local MP Mike Amesbury on 14th December.
Mike, as an enthusiastic supporter of cycling, expressed his support for the aims and activities of the forum and agreed to be patron of the group; a move gratefully appreciated by Mark Warren of CNC.
At this informal discussion, members discussed with Mike its current activities including areas where his assistance would be appreciated.
Principally these were:
- Improvements of cycle routes across the across the marshes to provide a traffic free link between Frodsham and Helsby with Stanlow and beyond.
- Liaison with CWAC and other local and national authorities
2018 is looking to be a busy year with CNC being very active in many areas with regards to various schemes to improve cycling throughout the area.
Many thanks go to the Ring of Bells for their excellent hospitality on the night.
Mark Warren, Interim Chair of CNC stated; “It was good to meet our local MP and hear his ideas to help progress cycling improvements in the area. We are fortunate to have a local representative with such a deep understanding of the issues through previous experience and a good working relationship with the Local Authority and other stakeholders and look forward to 2018 being a year of delivery”.
