ADD UPDATE, 26 April 2017: Following our successful ADD run on 2 April, we will be holding a ‘bluebell walk and run’ through the beautiful Stoke Park countryside this Saturday, 29 April, to raise awareness for our campaign and to remind ourselves of what will be lost if Eastleigh Borough Council goes ahead with its plans for 6,000+ new houses and a new road north of Bishopstoke and Fair Oak (namely options B and C of its emerging Local Plan).
We will meet at the Fox and Hounds, Winchester Road, Fair Oak, SO50 7HB at 3pm. Fun runners will be able to enjoy a sociable 5.7km scenic route whilst walkers can enjoy a stroll through the countryside before entering one of the ancient woodlands to enjoy a stunning display of bluebells and other wildflowers – all of which are severely threatened by the council’s shocking plans.
Both the run and the walk will start and finish at the pub, so we hope you might also enjoy a drink or something to eat afterwards. Please do join us with your families! It promises to be a wonderful, if sobering, afternoon.
There will be no charge for entering although donations to our campaign funds – which are critical to fighting these heinous proposals – are always welcome!
