Successful meeting in Midsomer Norton

Over 30 people attended a meeting in Midsomer Norton last night about fracking risks to Somerset. Taking place at the Town Hall, concerned locals came together to listen to presentations about unconventional gas developments across the world and the multiple harmful impacts being experienced and recorded.

A representative from national group, Frack Off, spoke about the bigger picture and why Somerset now faces these developments. An organiser from Frack Free Somerset also spoke, informing the room about local community action that had been taking place and how people could get involved. There were abundant questions and answers and nearly everyone present left with a heightened awareness of the impacts of uncoventional gas and extreme energy developments.

A new local group has also been formed as a result of the meeting. If you are interested in getting involved to help them raise awareness with them in Midsomer Norton please email info@frackfreesomerset.org and we will forward your details.
