Today’s announcement might not be the victory campaigners were hoping for but at least it’s a small step in the right direction.
It means if we continue to SHOUT LOUDER, government will hear us.
What to do now…
There are still a lot of people who don’t know anything about the government’s plans for the forests. We still have a way to go to stop the Public Bodies Bill and there are a few ways you can help to Save Our Forests!
Sign the petition if you haven’t already – tell others about it and get them to sign too
Write to your MP to ask him to vote against Clauses 17-19 in the Public Bodies Bill
Send a Love Trees letter to a Lord – we’re not sure the government are briefing the House of Lords fully on their intentions for our forests, so we must brief them about how much we love our forests
Find a Local Campaign and join in – the left hand side of this page has a list of local campaigns
If you set up your own Local Campaign, get in touch and let us know where you are in England and what your web link is and we’ll put your Local Campaign on our website
Most importantly – SPREAD THE WORD!
We’ve come a long way but we’re not out of the woods yet!
