Aliveandrunning January 19 2015 Janathon Day 19


Yesterday’s run into Cambridge from my village demonstrated the lack of priority walkers, runners  and cyclists have in the minds of planning authorities. To get to the main road into Cambridge, you have to take a long detour through another larger village. Additionally, the Park and Ride site is not accessible by foot unless you approach it by a long route through the aforementioned “larger” village. Large and sinister, some might say. And complacent with their ample stock of paths and pavements.

Went for a 2 mile run in the dark, at 5 pm, and got back to serve our evening meal. It was cold and I didn’t meet anyone. All the runners were probably poodling around a larger, sinister, complacent and ostentatious village.

What’s happening with my therapeutic gardening project? I’ve completed the planning request application forms and asked my named planning officer (who visited the site) to look over it prior to being submitted.

  1. My husband worked in Cambridge for a couple of years and I used to visit at weekends. Reading your posts makes me quite nostalgic !

  2. I’ve lived in Cambridge for 15 years and I still feel the city centre is wonderful. Most of my village chums say “poor you” when I tell them I’m going into town. They don’t like the congestion, the tourists, can’t relate to the students and the architecture seems to go over their heads?God help us!
