The Campaign to Protect Pont Valley is still going strong. Despite their best efforts Banks Group has not finished the preparation which triggers planning permission. Everything is still to play for.
Please come to one of the up coming community demonstrations. On Saturday 5th May the community demonstration was also direct action as no work happened on the site. Direct action doesn’t have to be confrontational, other forms of action can also still have an impact.
Demonstrations are happening opposite Our Lady and Saint Joseph Church, on the A692 between Dipton and Leadgate. DH8 6RS.
Family Friendly – Bring something for a shared veggie picnic.
