Cycle path from Lydd to New Romney

We the undersigned petition the council to put a cycle path from Lydd to New Romney

Lydd is a beautiful town but it has very few facilities for the youngsters. Most of the older children go to the Marsh Academy in New Romney, where there are far more facilities.They would be able to cycle to school. New Romney have a skate park, a leisure centre etc. Lydd has neither and as the public transport is both expensive and irregular (at this present time) we would love to see a cycle route that could be used by young and older alike. It would take transport off the road, which is both good for the environment and safer. It would also provide physical health as well as mental well-being. People who haven’t got transport would be able to access other areas.
Bikes could be hired from Romney Cycles and holiday makers would be able to cycle from New Romney to Rye, bringing business to local areas. (Cafes, pubs etc.)
The Marsh is flat so people should be encouraged to enjoy it and embrace the beauty of it. Please sign and hopefully we will get Lydd and New Romney connected.
