Peter Lilley, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden, took to the country roads of Hertfordshire on Saturday (14th September) to raise money for the county?s historic churches. He joined many others in a sponsored cycle ride around the historic churches of Hertfordshire. Altogether 500 churches in the Home Counties participated in the event.
Peter Lilley said after the bike ride:
“This is the first time in about ten years that I have ridden a bicycle for longer than ten minutes. I managed to cycle for five hours and visited twelve historic churches along the way.
“I hope that the event will have raised support for some of the county?s most beautiful and sacred buildings.?
