Gorse Wood Campaign (Essex)

Protestors living on site to stop the Chelmsford to Southend bypass have won second prize in a best tomato competition in the local village horticultural show. The prize patch is due to be trashed by another road funded by the government's Private Finance Initiative scheme (See SchNEWS 219). The green-fingered campaigners also came second in the flower arranging section - by putting some sunflowers in a smelly old para' boot! (ok so there was only three entries). They are asking for solidarity actions against the developers Laing.
