Cubbington Action Group against HS2 is holding a Public Meeting on Friday May 2nd at Cubbington village hall, Broadway, at 7.30pm. The prime purpose of the meeting is to discuss the group’s intention to petition Parliament for changes to HS2 plans in order to lessen the devastating impact on the Cubbington community and its ancient woodland. Group Chairman Peter Delow explains the importance of this meeting:
“In order to maximise our chances of success, it’s essential that we can show that we have our community squarely behind the Group and its requirements. Appearing before the House of Commons Select Committee that will start sitting to examine petitions this summer is the only chance that we will have to achieve changes to HS2, save for a similar exercise in the House of Lords that will follow much later.
It’s essential that we have a good turnout at the meeting so that we can register a significant number of votes in favour of our petition. If we don’t achieve this our petition could be thrown out as unrepresentative.”
The group urges everyone interested in the preservation of our countryside and local community to attend this meeting which will also deal briefly with the business of the group’s Annual General Meeting.
