Defend Lytham Launch

LaunchOn Saturday morning Defend Lytham launched our campaign against fracking in Lytham Square.

The weather wasn’t kind and there were only a few brave souls braving the cold and wet weather – and us.

In spite of the conditions we were delighted that so many made the effort to come and speak to us and discuss the issues around fracking, and we must thank Bob for the very kind loan of his gazebo to keep us and the petition as dry as was possible!

We collected nearly 100 signatures for our petition in a couple of hours and we met some great people who, like us, are very concerned about what is happening and how it is being rushed though by the government. We even had one gentleman who had cycled all the way from Blackpool through the wind and rain just to sign our petition.

Farmers MarketWe had a dry run (no rain!) at the farmers’ market on the Thursday before and would like to thank Robert Silverwood of the Lowther Cafe for his assistance here.

We intend to keep a local presence going on as many Saturdays as we can and we look forward to meeting many more of you over the coming weeks.
