Consultation on making Lucas Green Road and Ford Road, West End one-way

This proposal affects cyclists. A mandatory one-way system would force cyclists, for some journeys, off minor roads on to the busy, narrow A322, unless contra-flow cycle lanes were included.

There is no excuse for not doing it!

AGM Update

The Agenda, Draft Annual Report and Financial Report are now up on the website here for members to view prior to the meeting in ten days time, that is Saturday 27th October at 10am in Godalming at the usual venue. There will be free tea and coffee prior to the meeting (supplementary charge for gin), but we’ll pay for the gin or another drink of your choice following the meeting.
