It is with sadness we report that our former Secretary, Anne Lowe died on Friday 6th December – after a long illness. Some will know that she has suffered from cancer for some years and although it was terminal she was about to start chemotherapy at the beginning of December but unfortunately the cancer spread too rapidly in the intermediate 4 weeks and she was too poorly to receive it.
Be aware that Footpaths across the fields which form part of the Stortford North Developments may be subject to temporary closure. We will follow this throughout Development and try to ensure closure is not permanent, and routes are kept open during the construction period.

Herts CC and East Herts are currently drafting a ‘Cycle Corridor Study’ running up from the Lea Valley via Harlow, and Bishop’s Stortford into Stansted Airport’. This is a very detailed survey and is full of interesting possibilities. Stansted Mountfitchet, is in Essex and the latest Essex/Uttlesford Cycling Strategy Document 2018, does not identify any ‘Flagship route’ for Stansted Mountfitchet.. , although it does state that with the right infrastructure provision, and incentives from employers at and around the airport, that the share of cycling by employees could grow significantly …..and now there is a new College at Stansted Airport situated on Round Coppice Road!
