A visit to North Walsham, this evening

I will be speaking this evening at a public meeting at North Walsham Community Centre at 7.30pm (along with Norman Lamb MP and others). The reason for the meeting is that a company is proposing to store industrial waste there, at an old sewage plant. The proposal raises huge worries: about HGV traffic through entirely-unsuitable country lanes, and about the risk of an explosion (as happened at Bacton).
 Frankly, this kind of thing is precisely one of the raisons d'etre of the Green Party. To help small communities struggling against big companies which are in effect threatening those communities with an environmental nightmare...
 Wish me and the plucky local residents good luck this evening!
