The Frack Free Lancashire Bus will be travelling to North Yorks County Council Offices in Northallerton on 20th May 2016. We are going to show support for the Yorkshire groups who are opposing the development of the KM8 well in Ryedale. We are anticipating there will be great publicity.
If Councillors grant permission it would give Third Energy the opportunity to carry out the first fracking operations since 2011.
We are suggesting a donation of a minimum of £5pp, which will help to contribute towards the cost of the bus.

Maple Farm Nurseries situated on Preston New Rd between Lotus Drive and Moss House Lane, Post code PR4 3PE. It has large anti fracking signs displayed. Bus will arrive at 05.50 and leave at 06.00. All day parking available.

We’ll have a great day out…don’t forget the picnic!!
Do you remember Lancashire’s amazing victory in June, where we saw off fracking company Cuadrilla? Well now this victory is at risk and we need your help. Cuadrilla has ‘appealed’ against Lancashire’s decision to reject fracking. This means a public inquiry, held at Blackpool FC football stadium, will start on Tuesday 9 February and will run for approximately 20 days over 4 weeks. This will hear evidence on whether Lancashire County Council’s decision should be upheld or overturned by politicians in Westminster. We will be protesting outside to defend Lancashire’s decision and supporting the witnesses inside who will be registering their opposition to the application.
By Car:- Blackpool Football Club, Seasiders Way, BLACKPOOL FY1 6JJ, There is a large pay and display car park immediately opposite the entrance to the venue.
Coinciding with the first day of the public appeal “Through Our Eyes” is a photovoice exhibition that shows what it means to live under the threat of fracking.
Exhibition organiser Dr Ania Szolucha, an anthropologist from the University of Bergen in Norway said: “The idea for the exhibition came from an ongoing research project that explores the social impacts of shale gas developments in Lancashire. The exhibition itself, however, is only possible thanks to a collective effort from many people.
The exhibition shows that even before fracking commences, it has very profound impact on the local communities and there is no better way of showing this impact than by using people’s own words and images.”
The exhibition takes place from 11.30am onwards on Tuesday 9th February 2016,
Join us on a peaceful protest outside Blackpool FC Stadium on Tuesday, 9th February to defend Lancashire’s decision and support the witnesses inside who will be registering their opposition to fracking
The fantastic work of residents, communities, local, national and international groups has meant that “fracking” has stayed in the news and out of the Fylde!
Despite the wealth and power of those behind this dangerous industry, the opposition to it grows more informed and numerous.
We need to shout it loud and clear that we do not accept this threat to our communities. To do that, we need to gather ourselves together and show that we are united on THIS ISSUE.
This gathering is for residents, friends, families, businesses and anyone who feel that the shale gas industry comes with too many risks. A day for picnics, conversation, information and a show of numbers that makes our position clear and says… we will not be bought-off.
There has never been a more urgent time to get informed about the realities of hydraulic fracturing and the possible consequences here on the Fylde.
On April 30th Lancashire County Council will finally determine whether to approve or reject Cuadrillas applications to drill and frack for shale gas on the Fylde. Their decision will affect us all for generations to come. With a growing body of evidence from the USA, Australia and Canada, documenting the detrimental effects of this process on the environment, communities and human health, the people of Lancashire are in danger of being the first to find out the worst truths of fracking in the UK.
Fleetwood Folk Say No Fracking and The Lancashire Nanas invite you to an information day followed by a public talk in the evening. Full event details here…
Come along to find out more about: the effects of Fracking on human health, the economics of Fracking and what we as communities can do about it.
Now is the time to put even more pressure on Cuadrilla and oppose their fracking plans at Preston New Road and Roseacre.
