Campaign News February 2013

Fracking
We will hand in the fracking petition after the council budget has been set as there will be less pressure on councillors. We hope this will have more impact.

Creating a Bee World
Maureen has contacted Councillor Jack Scott for a suggestion as to where Sheffield Friends of the Earth can plant a bee meadow near the town centre. So far no site has been identified.
