FRIENDS OF Centurion Way were once again stationed on the path on Saturday afternoon, canvassing support for their campaign to preserve and enhance the community asset.
Ian Bartle, chairman of Friends of Centurion Way, sad: “It forms such a vital link between the city and the South Downs said one passer-by.
“As usual, those using the path ranged from young families teaching their children how to ride a bike, to people on mobility scooters.
“There were cyclists experiencing the freedom of biking in a safe environment and others crossing the railway bridge to and from the shops.
“Many were already supporters of the campaign but several new names were added to the list and the hot tea and gingerbread hare biscuits on offer were much appreciated on a cold and blustery day.
“People are truly dismayed at the prospect of a significant diversion to the path.
“Our immediate challenge is to raise funds to buy radio beam trackers to give 24/7 coverage of the path so that we have accurate figures of user numbers to present to the developers of Whitehouse Farm.”
On Tuesday, March 12, the next meeting was held where the group held a Centurion Way-themed quiz to help with fundraising.
