New Year’s Day Walk

Several hundred ‘no pylons’ protesters met for a rally in Kirkby on New Year’s Day at John Woodcock’s initiative. The MP and his two young daughters set out with a large group from Broughton to walk along part of the proposed pylon route. Another group walked along the beach from Askam. Organised by the MP’s office with support from PWP, the event served to highlight the pylons issue and urge individuals to respond to the consultation by the deadline.
