Congratulations to Nottingham on obtaining cycle funding

Nottingham City Council has secured £6.1 million from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) process to invest in and kick start an overhaul of Nottingham’s cycle facilities. The funding is for 2 years starting in April 2015 through to March 2017.

Let’s see Derby City Council try and match our neighbours. The presence of the Velodrome in Derby should give us an advantage over other Midlands cities.

Members – check you’re on the mailing list

We find we have a lot of members who we haven’t got email addresses for and thus cannot send them the electronic newsletters and other information.

If you’re a member and didn’t receive an email in the last month about the last newsletter, we probably don’t have your email address (or have an old one).

If you haven’t been receiving emails, please send a note to the Membership secretary with your up to date details. We don;t send out many emails (perhaps an average of one per month) so shouldn’t be thought of as another source of spam. You can always delete yourself from the mailing list if you tire of the messages.
