Chair Helen Wells catches the photographers eye at Downing Street

Representatives of the Save The Countryside Campaign went to Westminster last week to hand in our petitions, both electronic (well, evidence of) and paper.

We met with the press and a shadow politician first of all outside the houses of Parliament; we handed in a total of 4208 petition signatures from Save the countryside to Hazel Blears’ team at the communities and local government office,  and we handed in our letter at the gates of Downing Street.

 

It was good to get the attention of the press and the politicians, and we have had excellent news since confirming that the 4000 plus signatures on our petition will count as objecting comments against the RSS.
