Seasons Greetings from Chalgrove SHIELD

The members of Chalgrove SHIELD would like to thank all our residents, both in Chalgrove and the surrounding villages, and our supporters, donors and volunteers for all your help and goodwill over the last year in opposing the plans for Chalgrove Airfield.

We have had our ups and downs over the year, many frustrating conversations (and some very high blood pressure!), some sighs of relief and some very amusing comments, but how better to end this year and bring in the New with the recent news from Martin Baker? Without you, we would not be where we are today, and we cannot thank you enough.

Regarding the recent news, although this is very encouraging, sadly when SODC and the HCA are involved, we can expect some more twists and turns to come. We will continue to stand firm, and with the support of Martin Baker we’ll redouble our efforts to stop this unsustainable development from happening.

So for 2017, all that remains is for the members of SHIELD to say THANK YOU again, and we wish you, your families and our friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Here’s to 2018; let’s keep working to make it a very good New Year for Chalgrove!
