The Mayor cycled to join the residents of Kings Worthy to launch a new community map on Saturday 25 March.   Connecting Kings Worthy will deliver the new map, which will be delivered to everyone in the Worthies to bring the community together and get everyone walking and cycling. 

Connecting Kings Worthy map launch  Connecting Kings Worthy, which funded the map,   aims to make communities more sustainable - environmentally and also socially and economically. It is run by local charity Winchester Action on Climate Change, and funded by Southern Scottish Electric Network’s SAVE project.

Bespoke Biking gave a free bike check to residents who cycled to the launch while they delivered maps . Local resident Claire Welland, Chair of Headbourne Worthy Parish council and school governor, was delighted with the new map. She said ‘It was great to get our bikes checked after the winter. Let’s hoped it will encourage us all to cycle more. Cycling is great for healthy kids and it helps reduce the pressure on parking outside the school.
