On 27th October, Frack Free Calderdale folk gathered in St George’s Square, Hebden Bridge, to tell Yorkshire Water that fracking waste water is dangerous, and they are unhappy with the prospect of fracking waste water being treated at Yorkshire Water’s Knostrop Waste Water Treatment Works in Leeds.
If you have some outdoor clothing you want to get rid off, Finn and Laura from Blackshaw Environmental Action would like to use it for asylum seekers who visit Blackshaw Head. They need all sizes for children and adults.
Laura & Finn are inviting asylum seekers and refugees living in Rochdale to Blackshaw Head on a regular basis for day trips. They will be able to use our garden (growing stuff, playing football, etc), do walks in the area and do volunteering work. We will also have some families coming for a week during the summer period to have a holiday.
