Canterbury to Chartham
On Sunday 27 June, Nigel James will lead a short off-road ride from Canterbury West starting at 11am (not 10.30 or the pub won't be open!) to The Artichoke, Chartham along the Great Stour Way. If there are people who wish to go further, he will add a loop after lunch as the others will not get lost on the way back to Canterbury. If you intend to come, please could you let him know so he can forewarn the pub. Nigel James: 01795 475399

Levelling Up Fund survey
Canterbury is in the top priority group for the Government's Levelling Up Fund. The Fund allows a local area to bid for up to £20 million to support improvements to culture and heritage, public areas like high streets and parks, and public transport, cycling and walking. Canterbury City Council will be responsible for putting together a bid for funding and local MP, Rosie Duffield, wants to work with them and with other organisations on the bid. To help with this, Rosie Duffield has created a short survey to find out what priorities residents and businesses have for the Canterbury district. The survey has six questions, two are on transport.
