In a post on his Facebook page, Horsham MP Jeremy Quin has expressed his support for the Bridge the Downs Link campaign.

“I am delighted that because of the wider economic and social benefits for the area and the safety benefits to riders, cyclists, walkers and indeed those using the A281, HDC have applied for funding to support the project under a specific central Government fund.”

“The Downs Link is an important trail and taking it off tarmac is a powerful message to help build visitor interest as well as local utilisation as a sustainable route, encouraging wider use and the associated well-being benefits.”

You can support the campaign by writing to your local County councillor, displaying one of our posters and signing up for email updates.
