- I received the CPRE's "2018 Review". Though much has been achieved during the year we cannot afford to be complacent. This I know first hand from the people I have met whilst researching form my book as well as from the issues raised at our local CPRE meetings.
- A news item in our local freebie paper which suggests the M4 junction 18a is a serious development consideration. Despite assurances from a whole range of organizations if this is so it WILL slice through a swathe of green belt and our village. As an individual one is able to do very little. One way is to join the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England). PLEASE PLEASE join the CPRE. It is only £3.00 a month; the price of a cup of coffee or glass of beer. I find the meetings of our local committee rather depressing because there are so many plans for various developments and buildings on the Green Belt. The people who read the detail plans and then make them comprehensible to the likes of me are amazing. (They are all volunteers). However money is needed for legal fees in order to challenge these plans,. Having a larger membership means there will then be more funds for legal fees.
