Bowled over by the support for the Bowling Green

They say a picture says a thousand words. These photos from today's demonstration in support of retaining the Newsome Bowling Green certainly demonstrate the tremendous support in the community to protect this 110 year old local asset from development. Given the provocation that we have seen in the last few days it was particularly heartening to see such a calm and dignified demonstration by the local community.

 There was a lot of promotion on social media and myself, Cllr Karen Allison and Jacqui Sullivan got out the best part of 1000 flyers out over the last 2 days.  A lot of thanks are due to Jacqui Sullivan for all her hard work on behalf of the Bowling Club, to Diane Sims for taking the photos & helping publicise the event, to Janet Siddall for making so many banners and of course to everyone else who helped and turned up today.  Our colleague Cllr Julie Stewart-Turner, who wasn't able to be there today, has given a tremendous amount of support behind the scenes to the bowlers. The campaign to save the Bowling Green from development goes on!
