AUGUST 2017 Chairman's UPDATE & SUMMARY
Glad to say that the group has restarted successfully! I am
now officially in the background doing bits and pieces, and work is
underway by other members to organise events, write newsletters, help
with anti-cull activities, look at badger related planning issues,
rescue badgers that end up in the wrong places or injured and many
other things. If you'd like to help please get in touch either on here
or via facebook.
It looks as though the badger will spread out from the westcountry
this year and expand in some areas where it is already underway.
More help will be needed in badger cull
areas. This is all very sad indeed, and we can only hope that somebody
with influence will realise that badger culling is not the solution to
bovine TB in cattle. Please continue to pester your MPs to get the cull
stopped. If you need advice on wording a letter to your MP then get in
touch. Accuracy is important in getting the message across.
Ideas for events always welcome.
Bob Simpson. 23rd August 2017
