The following is from the Save Bathampton Meadows Facebook page:
B&NES Cabinet are holding a special meeting on Wednesday 25th January to decide on the location of a Park & Ride East and the fate of our precious Bathampton Meadows. PLEASE come join our protest outside the Guildhall at 4.30pm. Bring your banners, megaphones, drums and children. At 5pm join us inside the Guildhall to witness the Cabinet meeting and support the campaigners who are speaking. We need to get our message across to the 9 Tory cabinet members loud and clear.
Please note that we have requested that the timing of the meeting be moved so that people with jobs are able to attend. If they consent, the timing of the protest may change. We will keep you posted on the SBM FB page and on Twitter.
