Weekend protests in Eastleigh

P1010466

Two events are being staged this weekend by local ‘Anti- development ‘groups. This afternoon the ‘Save Stoneham Park’ is inviting councillors and local residents to join them on a leisurely ramble around the park land earmarked for 13,000 new homes under the proposed local plan.

Save Stoneham Park organisers who have invited councillors said:

“We do hope they can all make it as they will be voting on the proposals in the coming months, so we feel it only right they attend and see just what they’re going to recommend.”

The ramble starts at 3pm from the Doncaster Farm car park on Chesnut Avenue and should last around an hour – there are a couple of stiles on the route.

Meanwhile on Sunday at 1pm there will be a ‘Bring and Share’ picnic at Leigh Road  Rec  which has been advertised under the banner of protest group UKuncut’s  ‘Great British Street Party’.

The group says it is taking action to

“demand that we keep our public services, our rights and our welfare system and to celebrate a new future that isn’t dictated to us by a handful of millionaires but decided by us all – together.”

Leaflets distributed in the town this week promise:

 “Mini manifestoes, mock elections, a graffiti wall and discussion on public service cuts and Sainsbury’s expansion”

    Nice to see the spirit of protest is alive and well in this age of EU compliance. Also not surprising to see Sam Snook in the photo. Those of you who live in Eastleigh South will know that Sam has always played an active part in local politics for the benefit of the area. That’s what I call action!

    Yes Pete, Sam has attended both Stoneham walks unlike the area’s Lib Dem councillors!
