Radley Lakes Town Green Application Endorsed by Local Community

Last night, a packed public meeting at the Hadland Road Community Centre in Abingdon gave its wholehearted support to the recent application by Abingdon resident, Mrs Jo Cartmell, to designate Thrupp and Bullfield Lakes, and their immediate surroundings, as a Town Green under the Commons Registration Act 1965. (See story) An estimated 150 people ventured out in the wintry weather to attend the meeting, which was addressed by Andy Boddington, CPRE Campaign Manager for Oxfordshire; Catherine Robinson, secretary of the Friends of the Trap Grounds; and Basil Crowley and Peter Harbour from Save Radley Lakes. Over £500 was raised in cash donations, and many people have made generous pledges and/or have volunteered to help with gathering evidence, fund raising and other activities to support the project and achieve a succesful outcome.
