The Weekend’s Events

Posted: March 28, 2010 by defendhuntingtonlane in Uncategorized

What a weekend! Thanks to so many donations, cooking facilities are significantly improved, we have a new communal teepee – dubbed the Rainbows End, bodies were warmed by blankets, food and tea, muddy walkways made safe and lots of hard work has been done. And a lot of laughing too! Well done to all involved.

There are some updates to the wish list, please help if you can 🙂

  • Walkie Talkies please! With more people on site these would be really useful.
  • Metal storage bins for food, the larger the better. We’ve received so many generous donations of food that we now need significantly more storage. Anything would help, even a few old biscuit tins!
  • Cargo nets. We could really use a few of these if anyone can help?
  • More blankets as we’re expecting a chilly spell this week.
  • Nails of all varieties please.

We now have an address to which you can send blank, uncrossed postal orders if you would like to make a cash donation from across country. Please email defendhuntingtonlane(@) for details or call the site phone on 07989 243057

    Hi to everyone, as the weekend sets in.
    Ironbridge banner protest produced good coverage by the local Newspaper the “Shropshire Star” – thanks for that, and well done to the banner folk, taking the message to the heart of Tourist Telford – whats become a money pit, constantly paid into by local Council, and investment, to the detriment of the rest of the area, with the backdrop of Buildwas Power Station that will consume some, just some, of the planned coal.
    Despite constant rains, the largest communal Teepee on site was erected late afternoon, together with a large off ground community house,and ironically, as a few of us have named the communal area “Rainbows End”, when the rains stopped just before sundown, we were treated to a wonderful rare view of not one, but Three Rainbows, arcing over the camp site aganst a black, threatening sky.
    Needless to say, everyone stood in silent awe as they waxed, and held for a few moments, then waned, and fell away.
    Come on you Rainbow people, theres room for you here!
    Thanks to all who continue to bring supplies and water, if any kind soul has dry wood or pallets that they dont want, they would be appreciated .
    Bless you all.
