Hi Everyone,

We will also have further placards available and posters to put up in windows. If you require a placard or a poster please email or ring me and someone will deliver in early September.

2. FUNDRAISING EVENTS - Thank you for your continued support of our Action Group Fund Raising events. Unfortunately we only have a limited amount of time to raise funds before the Inquiry in December when the big bills will arrive for expert witnesses, barristers etc, hence the flurry of activities!!
