Along the way Gillian had a chance to talk with John Murray (John Murray Butcher and Game Dealer), David Harbottle (Chair of Governors, Loxwood Primary School) and The Wey and Arun Canal Trust at the Canal Centre in Loxwood.

In Plaistow, Gillian took time to walk the PROW with Paul Reynolds (P.O.R.E and a Plaistow & Ifold Parish Councillor) to the Crouchland Biogas facility and to see herself the scale of the contentious operations. She has already become familiarised on some of the history of the plant and the ongoing Planning Inquiry. Later she met Ann Butterfield, long time publican of Ye Olde Sun Inn and chatted with Sally Pavey (CAGNE – Communities Against Gatwick Noise Emissions) on the Gatwick issues. Gillian’s visit ended with a public meeting in Kelsey Hall Ifold where questions ranged from the important issue of West Sussex school funding, broadband (the fourth utility), Crouchland Biogas, agriculture and farming, and Brexit.
Gillian will be visiting Northchapel and Lurgashall on Tuesday, 30th May between 1030am and 3pm.
