  1. Hi well done for organising yesterday. I just want to make clear the picture above attributed to @thego4m was not taken by us. It was copied from another tweet. Sorry I can’t remember who from & it could have been an RT or a quote, but don’t want to be claiming credit for a picture that we just shared. Sorry for not acknowledging original source correctly but things were happening very fast & just wanted to share / draw attention with local MPs etc.

    • Thanks for letting us know, that is good of you and I will change the credit to anon, and its welcome that you were drawing local attention

      thank you for your support
