Well things are certainly starting to happen.
A Derbyshire Times photographer was out in the fields this morning taking pictures for a planned piece in the paper.
An hour later I was contacted by a reporter from The Derbyshire Times and she has just been out to interview me. Wanted to know my thoughts and concerns about the Hilltop Open Cast scheme as I live right on the edge of the site. She said that the paper was likely to do a fairly big piece about it – I assume this week.
The address of this website/blog will be included so I should start to see quite a bit of activity. We’ll be ahead of the developers as their website still consists of just a picture of a large earthmover destroying the landscape – just the sort of image to get us all on their side!
I think the time is probably right to get a local residents Action Group organised – what do you think?
