Please come along then and find out all about the new family friendly cycle route offering cyclists as well as walkers a fully signed interconnected network of routes crossing rich and varied landscape and circling the town including Witton Park and parts of the canal at Eanam.

downloadThe exhibition shows work that has already begun with local community groups and schools to develop a range of ideas that will help to promote the route, inform riders/walkers and create an attractive colourful multi user route.

Working alongside the Community Rail Partnership and a local artist Alastair Nicholson the route of the Weavers Wheel will be split into themes ranging from recycling, rural, technology, language and sound and a number of art installation will be produced resulting from the community participation.

There is a chance to get actively involved in some of the creative aspects of this whilst visiting the exhibition, and Alastair has his potter’s wheel in the gallery for pottery demonstrations as well as being available to discuss the ‪‎Weaverswheel‬ in general.
