Making it easier to walk and cycle means that more of us can enjoy the benefits
We, the Mayor, town council, people, businesses, schools and the Hospital want the renowned Georgian town of Lymington, situated between Sea and Forest, to be a sustainable and healthy place to visit and in which to live, work, sail and walk.
This project has been created by Lymington Transition Towns. Helping our community to transition to stronger, safer and greener, thriving communities.
Please visit us on Facebook to see what’s going on, and how you could benefit, and get involved.
The group are part of the New Forest Transition Group, and the UK Transition Towns Network.
The idea for this project came from Winchester’s Cycle Charter, and they gave full permission for us to use their work.
