Nocton mega-dairy petiton delivery – want to come along?
By Eleanor Campion
Tomorrow is a big day for the “stop Nocton mega-dairy campaign” . It’s the last day of the planning consultation on plans to build the UK’s first cow factory farm.
Since the campaign launched tens of thousands of 38 Degrees members have worked together to persuade one company to drop out and raised enough money, from all of us chipping in, to put ads in the local paper piling pressure on the companies that are still backing the plans for the mega-dairy.
The petition now has over 50,000 signatures and over 6,000 of us have sent personal messages to the Council. Together we’re letting the Council know that these plans are bad for cows, bad for climate change and bad for other farmers.
Tuesday 11th January is the last day we can raise our concerns. It would be great if we could get a few of us there to support the petition hand in. Do you want to come along? If so here is the time and place to meet:
Delivery of the petition is taking place at 1:15pm
We’re meeting outside North Kesteven District Council offices, 33 East Gate, Sleaford, Lincolnshire, NG34 7EF

This campaign is creating lots of press interest. This article was posted up on the Lincolnshire Echo website this morning:
