What a super day for the campaign on 18th June!
Roy again was a most lucid and convincing voice against the madness of the quarry proposal, and thanks to all those who turned up to walk with Bill and wear the T-shirts for both the BBC crew and the NottsTV team – some eye-catching telly was made, and your Webmaster has already had comment from some people who saw the coverage who hadn’t previously heard about the proposal. All the footage from the BBC East Midlands Today programmes at 6.30pm and 10.30pm are now on the site, you can see the Evening Bulletin here (45MB) and the Late-Night “abridged” version here (20MB). The Package that Notts TV put together is here (12MB). (all files in MP4 format, as per BBC iPlayer)
TV coverage wasn’t the only good news, though. A boost to the S.A.V.E campaign arrived with the postman – A letter from Rt. Hon. Kenneth Clarke MP outlining his opposition to the quarry proposal, which you can see here (PDF, 300kB)
Keep going! Get Those Response Forms in! July 11th is approaching quickly – after that date, it is too late to let the council know what you think – no matter if they thell the TV crews that “We are still a long way from digging here”; in 3 weeks’ time it will be over to the planners, councillors & lawyers to make their decision behind closed doors!
