Who received this email today? :-D
-----------------------------------------------------

Yesterday, after months of deliberations – we have the final, official word from the government that they will do what more than half a million of us asked them to – and protect our nation’s forests for good.

Congratulations! We’ve really, truly, won.

It was a political defeat, and victory for people power they never saw coming.

Mau :-D

Did you both sign a petition or something? If we got one, it was consigned to the spam bin.

That's GREAT news !

Folks .working away behind the scenes and hitting the jackpot.

What's needed now is all our Inner Town and City Playparks and Open Spaces to be protected..

The National Playing Fields Association Guidelines suggest 6 acres of Open Space per thousand people of population.

Are you getting your share ?

Thanks for replies,sorry just come back onboard.....had visitors.....yes it's great when you've signed a petition and rec. the good news that you were hoping for:-D

Will check for further sites re: bedroom tax and playing fields ( funny words to see in the same sentence lol )...where we can hopefully make a difference.

NHS is that to protect the bees or wasps BC? ;-) <3
