Friends Gain More Support
The last 10 days have been a busy time for the Friends of Thorpe Woodlands.
The walk through Belmore and Racecourse Plantations by over 100 local residents and 5 District Councillors has resulted in a great deal of publicity for our campaign to save these wonderful woods.
The EEN covered the walk and many letters have been published in support.
Membership of the Friends has tripled, and our cause is gaining support from more and more people.
In addition to the welcome, and highly valued support that we have received from the council we have also been contacted by Chloe Smith MP. In her letter, which is shown here, she states that she is sorry not have been able to join us for walk but she declares that she supports our cause.
This campaign depends upon the local people who have worked so hard over the last two months. We would ask all our members to continue their excellent work, and continue writing to the press and spreading the news to their friends and neighbours about the threat to our woods and the campaign to save them
