We are organising a peaceful protest and wassailling event for sunday 17th January at 2pm on shirehampton green with a peaceful march to the daisy field a green field under threat of building (yet another) the council are stripping away green areas and selling them off but not going ahead with building because they 'have no money'. We have lost the allotments, the horse field and now they are starting on the daisy field. The decision about this field which is next to the station has been moved forward to june which co incides with the local elections. We want the community to use it as a community open space or develop it into a community orchard or field site or apply to the countryside agency and make it into a doorstep green. Peaceful protesters are welcome to the event.
