KDCS 30th Anniversary Party - Sprint Mill Sat 2nd July 2022

 Hi All,

I hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to the KDCS 30th Year Celebration.

Edward and Romola have kindly made the use of Sprint Mill available for us to celebrate in.

The itinerary so far is as follows: Date: Saturday 2nd July 2022, place: Sprint Mill, Burneside LA8 9AQ

  1. A leisurely bike ride(20 miles) from Kendal Leisure Centre to Sprint Mill - meet at 10:30am at KLC
  2. Route details 
  3. Arrive at Sprint Mill from 12 noon onwards (those not doing the ride just make their own way there) for a Jacobs Join BBQ
  4. Volunteers to collect Jacob join food from the riders at the Leisure Centre at 10:30am to take to Sprint Mill along with any 'recycle bike items', -    if people are able to bring prepared food (savoury and / or desserts) and / or some food to go on the BBQ that would be great.  
  5. There will be a stall at Sprint Mill for any unwanted cycling related items to swap, 

    I'm sure a lot of people will have some bits and pieces they don't need any more etc.  A great way for things to go to new homes and be made use of. 

  6. Music will be provided throughout the afternoon by members of KDCS – there are quite a few musicians in the group (if you want to play/sing let me know) 
  7. Maybe some kind of history of the KDCS over the last 30 years - In words or pictures?

    Memorabilia - films, photos of KDCS - good to show. It would be good to hear about the 'beginnings' of KDCS from any original members.  (Also - maybe we all could share our memories of 'our very first ride with KDCS' )? 

  8. Speech from the Chairman, and anyone who wants to say anything about KDCS memories. 


If anyone has any more ideas please let me know.
For anyone who doesn't know where Sprint Mill is, head towards Burneside Hall from Kendal until you reach Sprint Bridge, and turn right up a small lane until you reach the Mill.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans

Catherine has received this from the County Council to circulate to KDCS members, and draws attention to the questionnaire in the linked document (below), regarding cycling and walking in Kendal. 

 There is also a link to the report written in February with the collated comments of members about the LCWIP meeting. Apologies for its lateness.


"Cumbria County Council in partnership with Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (CLEP) and Cumbria's six district councils are developing a series of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs) for urban areas across Cumbria.

A Public Consultation seeking views on emerging LCWIPs for the areas of Carlisle, Barrow-in-Furness and Kendal is now live and will continue for 3 weeks up to Friday 28th May 2021.

For more information on the LCWIPs and to view copies of the consultation materials please go to our project website at www.cumbria.gov.uk/planning-environment/cyclingandwalking

We invite our partners, stakeholders, interest groups and members of the public to feedback on the draft cycling and walking networks developed via the online questionnaire on our project website."
