Steve Turvill, Chairman

steve-limoncello-italian-deliBorn (1965) and bred in Cambridge, I am the owner of Limoncello Delicatessen in Mill Road and I live locally, in Argyle Street. In 2011, I began campaigning to open the Lakes so that they can be free for all to enjoy. I’m particularly keen to get swimming allowed. I am committed to steering Camlakes as a high quality, environmentally friendly project that benefits the entire community.

fgtwitterI moved to Romsey in 2012 and was amazed to see that there is a beautiful natural area so close to the city yet fenced off from the public. Because my background is in communications, I offered to help Steve with social media for the Camlakes project. I fully believe that one day we’ll be able to raise a glass of Limoncello Prosecco lakeside, before diving into that very enticing water.

I like to build and improve things but unfortunately I can’t create a mountain to enjoy typical New Zealand pursuits like bungey jumping or building hobbit houses. The chalk pits could be the next best thing: a place where youth and community can explore nature and sports on their doorstep.

    Delighted to see that you are pushing the idea of creating a swimming area in the chalk pit. Please add me to your list of supporters.
    Could I suggest that, on your website, you add a link to the River and Lake Swimming Association ( RALSA has been campaigning since 2003 for greater access to rivers and lakes for swimming. I will ask our website manager to put a link to your site, and also ask him to feature your campaign on the association’s website and on our Facebook page, inviting people to support it.
    Best wishes
    (Cambridge resident and president of RALSA)

    I happened to see the Cambridge Evening News and read with delight about the proposed developments of the Romsey site and especially the plans for natural swimming pools: just what we need! I have lived in this City for 39 years and love it ( and see with some trepidation that we are growing into a city with areas which are totally out of kilter with its cityscape and its character) and would welcome very much a local area for local people.

    I would have time next year to do some volunteering if that were needed; I wish you very well with the project.

    Yours ever,

    I moved to Cambridge with my husband back in 2007 & it’s been only today that we decided to walk along the fenced lakes with our two children.What an amazing experince that’s been.It is very difficult to believe that such a magic place is hidden away and most people ( even those like us who love nature & spending time outdoors) don’t even know it. I do believe the lakes and their surroundings should be something for the city of Cambridge to be proud of not to hide away.Nature has gifted the Romsey comunity with a beautiful piece of jewellery; let’s embrace it, let’s love it, let’s share’ll be amazing.
    All the best
