Bleadon Still Under Threat

Posted on 7th January, 2020

 

Bleadon is still under threat ... from Acidisation instead of Fracking!

 

The government's current "moratorium does not cover acidisation, which is the process being considered by Infinity Energy to be carried out in Bleadon, just south of Weston super Mare, if they can find a landowner who is prepared to accommodate their drilling operation. “The threat of drilling through the fissured limestone cave system, and introducing vast quantities of acid deep into the bedrock of Mendip simply does not bear thinking about” said Dr Richard Lawson, chair of Frack Free North Somerset."

 

There is a talk at Love's Cafe next Tuesday, 14th January 2020, Weston-Super-Mare by Tina Rothery.

 

For more information read below, the poster and Bleadon BOB's Fracking page.

SPEAKER TO HELP RESISTANCE TO CONTINUED THREAT OF “FRACKING” IN NORTH SOMERSET

 

Frack Free North Somerset are proud and excited to be hosting Tina Rothery to speak at our AGM on Tuesday, 14th January 2020 at Loves Café, Weston-Super-Mare.

 

Tina Rothery is a prominent national anti-fracking campaigner, who was one of a group that in 2014 occupied a Lancashire field that Cuadrilla wished to drill, risking a fine of £55,000 and 2 weeks in jail. In the end, the case brought against Tina by Cuadrilla was discharged, and the peoples’ resistance to fracking in Lancashire was victorious.

 

She stood for the Green Party in Tatton in the 2015 General Election and in Fylde, Lancashire in the 2017 General Election.

 

Tina is a-founder member of the redoubtable group of Lancashire anti-fracking “Nanas”, and has worked as a journalist, a radio presenter and now works as Social Media Consultant to the Green MEP, Gina Dowding.

 

She is a powerful and inspiring speaker, and Frack Free North Somerset is delighted that she is coming to speak to their AGM, as unconventional oil drilling is still a threat in North Somerset. Although the Government issued a moratorium against fracking at the beginning of the recent General Election campaign, this is widely seen by campaigners as a temporary device to take fracking off the electoral agenda. The moratorium does not cover acidisation, which is the process being considered by Infinity Energy to be carried out in Bleadon, just south of Weston super Mare, if they can find a landowner who is prepared to accommodate their drilling operation. “The threat of drilling through the fissured limestone cave system, and introducing vast quantities of acid deep into the bedrock of Mendip simply does not bear thinking about” said Dr Richard Lawson, chair of Frack Free North Somerset.

 

The meeting will be at 7:30 pm at Loves Café, 9 West Street, Weston-super-Mare, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JR

Community Gardening in the Churchyard Update

Posted on 17th August, 2019

 

An update from Rev Tim Erridge:

 

"In June, July and August it has been a joy to welcome new helpers at our "Churchyard working group" mornings. It is good to get to know local people whilst working together. If you have not yet joined in and want to, please do. If you need more info, please contact Tim on revtimerridge@gmail.com or 01934 815 404.

 

We have planted up previously overgrown grave plots and the splash of colour makes so much difference. Thank you to Bleadon in Bloom for providing plants.

 

We are pleased to see that an ornamental prunus which was mistakenly cut back very hard is now shooting strongly from the base and may even be better off long term of the mistake!

 

We are planning to be working together on 14th Sept, 5th Oct and 2nd Nov (All Saturdays from 10am to 12noon) Do come along and join in. Bring gloves and secateurs if you have them, but if not just bring yourself.

 

There are also still plots available for adoption. This means planting / tidying a specific plot at a time to suit you. Please ask if you would like to adopt.

 

Thank you for all your help so far and we look forward to working together again soon."
