Whiston Action Group and the Churmet Valley Conservation Society are organising a walk from Whiston to Oakamoor to help raise awareness in the planning application by Laver Leisure to completely ruin this part of the Churnet Valley and to let councillors and the officers at SMDC know just exactly how strong feelings are running locally.
The walk is open to all interested parties, walkers, dog walkers, horse riders, cyclists, young families with pushchairs, and indeed the farming community, who, by definition are the ultimate lovers of the countryside.
We urge all interested parties to join us on Saturday 6th December at 9.45am at Whiston Village Hall for a walk down to Oakamoor Village Hall for tea, biscuits and a chat to discuss ongoing plans.
The more walkers, tractors, cyclists, dogs and horses the better!
It’s about time that residents were listened to in the Staffordshire Moorlands, and hopefully the media coverage generated by this walk will make officers and councillors alike sit up and take note.
