Our Protest Walk grabs the headlines

Sunday's Protest Walk around the threatened South Stoke Plateau was a huge success.

We sent a clear message to the Council, the Planning Inspector and our MPs, Don Foster and Jacob Rees-Mogg, that there is fierce local opposition to the proposal to build 400 homes on the plateau.

The coverage we received for the walk, and Sally Muir’s art exhibition at Green Park on Saturday, was phenomenal.

On Friday we were featured on BBC Bristol and The Breeze Bath, and on Saturday Sally was interviewed on BBC Bristol.

BBC News Online ran a story about the protest walk on Sunday, then ITV West were at the Cross Keys to film our protest. And here's a link to a recording of the actual ITV News West item

Finally on Monday, our walk headlined on the Bath Chronicle website and The Breeze Bath followed up with another interview.
