The Read-In yesterday was a great success. We have even more names on the petition and we’ve raised public awareness in Wheatley. The BBC News crew stayed for ages – every time they started packing up, something else happened – kids dancing to the accordion music, someone coming from across the village to sign the petiton, or talking about how the closures will have a detrimental impact on local trade, for example.
Footage from the event will be used for a BBC piece on Breakfast News on Tuesday morning. We’re looking forward to seeing how it turns out!
