⏰ TOMORROW 8AM - 4PM ⏰
As many of you will be aware, there is a legal protest taking place tomorrow morning on Cemetery Road. The organisers of the protest have been in close contact with the police who will be on hand to marshal.
I will be attending in the morning and speaking around 9.30am.
There will also be multiple media organisations coming to the protest so let's make sure we get the message across firmly but in a peaceful manner.
For all those attending, please:
🚶♀️ Walk to the protest if possible - if driving please park considerately (and not in the lay-by)
↔️ Follow Covid guidelines (2m distancing and spread along the road)
😷 Wear masks
✔️ Stay on the cemetery side of the road
Please do not:
🪦 Enter the cemetery
🗣️ Swear, or abuse anyone present
🚫 Obstruct the highway / entrance gates
Once again I would like to pay tribute to the local community. What they are putting up with is not fair or right, and everyone's efforts in reporting the odour have clearly helped to move this issue on to a point where we now have scientific monitoring, Red have had to curtail waste operations, and the Environment Agency have already recorded 1 significant and 4 minor breaches of the permit, and issued an enforcement notice.
There is still a long way to go on this but tomorrow we can demonstrate our determination.
