For those who help promote safe and active cycling
In 1996 Sustrans commissioned dedicated local cycle campaigners Catharine ‘Catha’ Keegan and Sheila Webb to survey for National Cycle Route 18 between Ashford and Canterbury. Catha sadly died in 1998. Today half of this 17-mile section offers safe, ‘traffic free’ commuting, school run and leisure path for cyclists and walkers.
The Catha’s Seat Group was established to continue Catha’s work by promoting use of the route and continued improvement to safety. At first the Group raised funds to create a glorious rural resting place known as Catha’s Seat.
Now, we want to invest in your ideas.
Awards of up to £1,000 in equipment and expenses available for groups, schools or individuals that…

• Promote the cycle route as a safe way to schools and places of work, for people with disabilities, for health and leisure and as a sustainable form of transport
