Here is our story of the campaign……

People Protesting

The campaign team worked amazingly hard,

-writing leaflets and the Grapevine newsletter,
– organising the printing,
– leaflet distribution throughout much of Longdendale,
-including to remote rural locations,
– collecting the objections,
– logging the hundreds of objections,
– studying planning documents and researching the issues,
– writing an 8-page website feature about the issues,
– photographing the march,
– writing up our campaign for the press,

– making waterproof placards for the march (good job we did too – it was a wet day!!),

Save Our Green Belt

Much of the campaign work was done at short notice, with folk dropping all their other commitments!
Most of our team are really busy folk but have sacrificed their time because these objections would not have happened without it.
Even horses helped.
