On the day of the local council elections, members of the stophs2trowell action group stationed themselves at both polling booths in Trowell to try and gather signatures for the Stop HS2 petition.

Stop HS2 Trowell are planning a march to protest against the proposed route of HS2 through Trowell. We would like as many participants as possible, to make the march attract media attention, but also the more people who join us, the more fun it can be. Residents from neighbouring towns and villages are not only Read more about Stop HS2 march[…]
This is an updated, and in my opinion improved version of the image previously in the press. It shows HS2 passing over Station Road in Long Eaton. Many of the residents of Long Eaton are as much against HS2 as we are, so again, the more signing of petitions we can do the better. I Read more about HS2 over Long Eaton[…]

Uncertainty was expressed about challenging facts and figures without knowing if they were factual. It is difficult to decide what is actual fact and what isn’t, especially as the information published by the government Read more about HS2 Ltd visit on 27th[…]
Following the leaflet drop the previous week, the meeting on Tuesday had a welcome increase in attendance, with a total of about 50 residents. Those who attended for the first time may just have done so out of curiosity, without truly believing much could be achieved. However groups in other areas of the country have Read more about Action Group Meeting 24th January[…]
We are waiting for printing of our leaflets, which will be delivered throughout Trowell. Whilst we await the printers though, here is a draft copy: HS2 leaflet Jan. 2017 final
