SOUTH LYNN, 12th Oct 2019 -- A group of local residents, cyclists and walkers today celebrated 16 years of Harding's Way with music, cake and sweets. The tarmac Sustrans route was originally built in 2003, part-funded by a Safe Route to School grant.
MJ Ray of KLWNBUG said: "It's amazing that South Lynn's great greenway is sixteen years old already. Such a fantastic route to town merits a celebration and I'm glad we could have a party today. Thank you to all the volunteers who campaigned to get it built, who work tirelessly to clear litter and cut back vegetation and who are still campaigning to keep it green. I hope the councils let it survive to its 17th anniversary and that we get better weather to celebrate that!"
Kevin Waddington of Keep Cars Off National Cycle Route 1 in King's Lynn said: "Next week we have a big chance to keep motor traffic, including HGVs, off of Hardings Way. We need a big demonstration outside the Town Hall on Saturday Market Place at 5pm on Thursday 17th before the council meeting starts to give support to Councillors Kemp and Bone. We will present our petition to the council to give an indication of what so many people living in King's Lynn desire."
