Want to find out more about fracking?

We’ve been sent information about an event in July ….

It’s about a conference which has been organised by North Lincolnshire CPRE and Cath Farrell explains that ….

CPRE Northern Lincolnshire Branch will be holding a day’s conference on ‘Fracking’, exploring the pros and cons of shale gas extraction proposed within our region. This is currently a controversial topic, many local people are, understandably, unaware of the process of fracking and have expressed an interest to find out the the true facts of this new exploration for energy.

The conference will be held at the Ropewalk, Maltkiln Lane, Barton on Humber, North Lincolnshire DN18 5JT (for directions click here) on Saturday 12 July 2014, 10.00am – 3.00pm.  Tickets are £15.00 per person and include a delicious buffet, made from local ingredients and refreshments throughout the day.
There is also the option not to partake of the buffet and this is offered at £11.  You don’t have to be a member of CPRE to attend, but obviously they’d like you to join so maybe this is the opportunity to see what they do?  Watch this space for updates and the list of speakers.
Booking for this event is essential, please contact Cath Farrell on 01652 633924 or email cathfarrell@btconnect.com by Friday 20 June 2014.
