1. TAKING THE COUNCIL TO COURT
We are taking the Council to court through Judicial Review for their failure to handle the case fairly. Please get in touch if you have legal experience or contacts.

2. BOYCOTT TESCO - SUPPORTING ALTERNATIVES
We are soon to launch a Boycott Tesco campaign which marks the shift of emphasis to supporting positive alternatives to the supermarkets.
