Titnore Woods trees saved - campaign continues


Some cheer for Titnore Woods protest camp this week (See SchNEWS 558) as West Sussex and Worthing councils seem to have responded to local opposition and found a way to not destroy 200 or so trees during the development. The planned access road straight across the land where the camp is still on the menu however, not to mention the 875 houses and a new Tesco.

Eviction at the camp could still be imminent but despite (or to spite) this, an energetic expansion bid has been launched. To help with this they urgently needed more timber and polyprop rope (6mm is best) and tarpaulins for tree houses etc, plus, on a more down to earth level, supplies of toilet paper and coffee.

If eviction takes place, supporters are being asked to go as soon as possible to the camp, or congregate in Fulbeck Avenue, Durrington, if access is barred. Then on the first Saturday after, there will be a protest against the eviction and development on Fulbeck Avenue, 12pm.

* Financial donations can be made at the camp or by sending a cheque payable to "The Porkbolter" to -
PO Box 4144, Worthing BN14 7NZ

* There is a "mass mobilisation" for all opponents of the development on Sat October 7th.
Gather 2pm at Durrington rail station.

For more see  or phone the camp on 0780 4245324.
