Join us for a morning of information and discussion!
A free public meeting with guest speakers.
Thousands of oil wells could be drilled across the Weald under the governmentâ€™s controversial plans for unconventional oil and gas extraction, including fracking. Fracking has been suspended in France, Scotland, Wales, New York and elsewhere, over health and other concerns. Is it time for England to do likewise?

â€œThe arguments against fracking on public health and ecological
grounds are overwhelming. There are clear grounds for adopting
the precautionary principle and prohibiting fracking.â€
Open letter in the British Medical Journal in support of Medactâ€™s
report Health and Fracking: the impacts and opportunity costs, 2015
“Both the European Union and the United Nations Environment
Programme have concluded that fracking may result in
unavoidable environmental and health impacts even if the gas is
extracted properly and more so if done inadequately.”
