The transfer of management responsibility to the new public/private Partnerships is clearly seen as an opportunity to reduce public funding in favour of new sources of revenue from commercial activities and donations. While this is not necessarily wrong in the long term, a sudden withdrawal of support can only cause great damage. The Friends of The Ridgeway, as the only association focused solely on The Ridgeway, needs to take the lead in mobilising public support. Our membership numbers have sadly declined in recent years, since the off-roader battles were won, and we need now to reverse that decline and to appeal to everyone that loves The Ridgeway to join us in fighting for its preservation.
