Friends of Shoebury Common

Spending a cold December Sunday morning on Shoebury Common is not my idea of fun, but this was no ordinary December Sunday morning, today was a peaceful demonstration organisised by the Friends of Shoebury Common with help from SKIP and the Green Party to highlight to the media that the residents of Shoebury do not want this prosposed wall. There was about 350 people who attended today's demonstration. The BBC Look East filmed and interviewed Ray Bailey, Peter Lovett and Peter Grupp Friends of Shoebury Common and the demonstration will be televised sometime this week. Southend Council will hopefully wake up and realise that the people of Shoebury do not want the wall and more new houses as our infrastructure will not be able to cope with increase traffic and a strain on public services.
