“All out” for fracking in 2014!
Firstly, a very warm welcome to all our new readers, as our circulation has climbed to an all time high of 313 thanks to the hard work of the canvassing teams who have been pounding the cold and wet streets of Cowbridge most Saturday mornings since the New Year.
We need this work to keep on going and many hands really do make light work, so do please get in touch by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you can spare an hour now and again by joining the rota.
A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY……..NOT TO BE MISSED……….THE VALE NOT FOR SHALE CONCERT !!
Vale Not For Shale Concert – Saturday 22nd Feb 2014 14:00-23:00hrs
Cowbridge Town Hall
Four local groups are teaming up to put on a big music event in the heart of the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Vale Says No, Llantrithyd Villagers Against Drilling, Frack Free Wales and Friends of the Earth Barry & the Vale, are hosting the event to voice their strong opposition to current plans for test drilling and, eventually, fracking for shale gas in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The concert is being organised by Donal Whelan and is part of the campaign to raise public awareness of the dangers of fracking. It will also serve to build public support for the Balcombe-like protests that will surely happen when the drilling rigs arrive.
Concert line-up so far includes Cian Ciaran of the Super Furries, electro-pop duo Trwbador and local legend Colum Regan, with more acts to be announced.
Tickets £10 on the door.
