SAVE SHERWOOD FOREST – public meeting at ICC/YMCA Thursday 27th Jan 2011


SAVE SHERWOOD FOREST

What can we do to ensure that Sherwood Forest is not privatised, in a mad rush
to shore up the Government’s coffers, and then denied to us forever? …we need to act fast.

Update: Private Eye in ‘Forest Chumps’ article explain how a piece of land sold at £60,000 to a private concern attracted an initial government grant of £55,000, and can take even more after: http://www.private-eye.co.uk/sections.php?section_link=hp_sauce&issue=1280
