North Lancashire Bridleways Society makes generous donation to the BHS Access Fighting Fund

North Lancashire Bridleways Society has donated £1,000 to the BHS Access Fighting Fund. Mark Weston, BHS Director of Access, received a warm welcome from members of the North Lancashire Bridleway Society (NLBS) at a recent meeting in the village of Hest Bank, north of Lancaster. Eve Hall, NLBS Chairperson, was delighted to present Mark with a cheque for £1,000 for the BHS Access Fighting Fund and thanked everyone who had fundraised to make the donation possible, including the local community.

 

Mark accepted this generous donation on behalf of the BHS and congratulated the members of the NLBS on an impressive list of activities and achievements.

Recent success for the NLBS include a campaign for access for horse riders to the Lune Millennium Way following the river Lune, a route from Bolton-le-sands to Carnforth along the canal towpath, and working with a cycling group on a multi user route across Heysham Moss, to list but a few.

NLBS is keen for the donation to the BHS Access Fighting Fund to be used to campaign for the reinstatement of bridleways and byways in parts of the country where horse riders are in desperate need of access to safe off-road routes. The preservation and protection of rights of way is so important for today’s horse riders and future generations.
