    Write to the CAA! Because like Dan sez, they've changed the fight paths on a trial period and it's fucking everything up good and proper. So the CAA need to know.

    Public Inquiry 2 -- the return of the Public kicks off on Weds 22 April at Dorking Halls. Please come if you can and show your support. See www.lhag.org.uk for more information.

    In other news, the world has gone oil mad with this Gatwick find. LHAG are being asked for interviews all over the BBC. Bizarre world.

  5. It's fucking batshit. This alone should mean no drilling for fucking oil: Surrey Hills AONB

    Area of outstanding natural beauty.

    Rocket surgery it ain't.

    HGV route In its evidence to the inquiry, Europa has described Coldharbour Lane as an established HGV route. Mr Nolan told the inquiry this was untrue because there was a width restriction of 6ft 6” on the road.

    That quote is gold. Have they even driven down that road?!

    Great comments from the mysterious Mr Nolan. Forensic

    I use to live on Boxhill. If I was still there I'd be protesting as much as possible. This area must be saved because of its amazing beauty.

    Good luck to the protesters, lets hope you succeed.

    I used to do a bit of foraging up the hill too, lots of great free hedgerow food, and the wildlife was amazing. The views towards Brighton on a good day...too much to lose.

    I went on a tour of Denbies on the land train with my lad at the weekend. The views from the top of the vineyard near the owners house are fucking stunning. You can see Leith hill tower right across to Kent and round to Box hill

    I Googled the owner when I got home and he has a somewhat colourful and controversial past as the owner of Biwater

    Wrapping up on Friday, likely all witnesses finished by end Weds and there will be a site visit all day Thurs.

    Come along, that would be great!

  15. We had a lovely walk a couple of weeks ago, Ranmore Common down through Denbies and over to the stepping stones, then in to the Stepping Stones pub. Behind Denbies there's a phone mast that's been made to look like a tree, was pretty convincing too.

    I'll be there in spirit. If it was near enough I'd be there to protest for sure.

  17. Can you ensure that there are no forestry operations on Thursday?

    Fat chance! The only time they do it is on Inspector site visits, the bastards.
  19. Sounds about right!

    Really well done to you kabbes for taking on this fight, you, Mrs kabbes and all those in LHAG have done a tremendous job so far, even the strange Mr Nolan deserves some credit. Everything crossed that sense is seen.

  21. Lovely latest newsletter kabbes, I know your granny doesn't need to be told how to suck eggs and I really can't see how it will go in Europa's favour, but as Mr N acknowledges it still could go wonky.Everything crossed and if Sepp has had a hand in proceedings I'm well up for some direct action.

    je suis the surrey hills.

  26. Really struggling to think of a more inappropriate place to drill for oil. And there really is no way that large numbers of trucks going up the hill won't damage those ancient lanes.

    Perhaps lots of cheap, old, but legal cars parked in spots to frustrate lorries, kabbes ?

    Does that mean they're going to proceed?

    Are there any links, or reports about whats going on at the moment?
