Thank you to everyone for all your support at, and leading up to, the meeting last night.
I am not sure, but I think they ran out of chairs. It was certainly a fuller hall than normal!
I think that our message came across and if it did, it’s down to all the support we have had from everyone close to home and around the world.
While I was panicking before leaving the house for the meeting my daughter told me not to read the speech I had sketched out.
“For Goodness sake, I’ve heard you rant endlessly about it. What do you need notes for?”. (she’s a teenager so that’s edited for publication).
A friend reminded me that the real issue here is all the Faversham people who make the Creek what it is. And to crown it all we had a lovely message of support from Brasil just ten minutes before we set off.
All of this, and all of your support over the past few months helped enormously. I am not normally a confident public speaker.
Perhaps the Council will now begin to look for ways in which they CAN help, rather than giving reasons why they can’t.
