Sarah Boxall started this petition to Long Melford Parish and Suffolk County Council

This is regarding the Rights of Way for cyclists along the Long Melford section of The Valley Walk.

We would like the right to cycle along the Long Melford section of Valley Walk which is also known as the Old Railway Walk.  This starts at Southgate Street, runs along the North East of the village to Bull Lane. For more than 50 years residents of Long Melford have enjoyed this route for walking and cycling without any objections being raised.

The Valley Walk has been used by several generations of residents to teach their children to ride a bicycle in safety rather than on the roads.  Very recently signs have been placed along the walk forbidding the use of bicycles without any apparent consultations or notice of change of use.

Cycling is welcomed along every other section of the Valley Walk apart from now the Long Melford area.  By signing this petition it is to request that this change is reinstate the use for cycling alongside walkers by riding and walking in a respectful manner and giving way so everyone can pass safely.
