All users of FC facilities in England are urged to come along to Hamsterley Forest, Co. Durham on Saturday 26th Feb at 11am to show your support for the campaign to prevent the sell-off.
Hamsterley Trailblazers are one of the many organisations which have come out against the proposals. We believe they have the potential to seriously diminish public access.
While we would love to buy our own forest, we think it unlikely that we will be able to raise c.£8m in the 28 days the Government will allow us before putting the forest out to open tender.
Helen Goodman MP will be one of the speakers at the event. Please support us and give mountain biking at Hamsterley a secure future.
Also, you can sign a petition specifically aimed at showing the Government the weight of opposition to the sale of Hamsterley Forest. It is organised by the Northern Echo and you can find it here.
Or sign one on Facebook, courtesy of the Teesdale Mercury.
