The Co-operative launch their FRACK FREE FUTURE campaign in Bridgend on 23rd September

Bridgend Green Party is proud and honoured to be able to announce the FRACK FREE FUTURE strand to the Co-operative’s TOXIC FUELS campaign is being launched with a prestigious event at the brand new Sony Theatre at Bridgend College.I have been working closely with Sarah Woods (longstanding Co-operative activist and recently appointed Frack Free Future Facilitator) over several months to bring this event to fruition. It is a lot more than just a screening of Gasland:

  • Before the screening, the event will have a keynote address from Calvin Jones, eminent Cardiff University lecturer, specialising in the environmental impact of economic activity
  • A ‘World Cafe’ style facilitated discussion on themes connected to the issue
  • Refreshments (supplied by the Co-operative) to sustain you through the evening
  • The premiere of 4 x 1 minute films , featuring local campaigners, which will form part of the online campaign
  • The opportunity to watch Gasland on the state of the art facilities of the new theatre and discuss the issues

At this stage, we are not making this event open to the general public. The format of the the event does restrict capacity considerably and we have taken the decision to try and ensure that as many of the key decision-makers as possible will be at this event. We have produced an invitation list that includes large numbers of MPs, AMs, Councillors, local activists and affected residents, and key media people.

However, I am keen that anyone with a strong interest in this issue has the opportunity to attend.

If you are keen to attend and have not yet received an invitation to the event via the Co-operative, please feel free to contact Clair Stevens at the Co-operative – her contact details are on the flier below – or me, Andy Chyba, at or 07810663241.

I wish to put on record my immense gratitude to the Co-operative, and Sarah in particular, for the support they have offered us here in Bridgend, and now around the country, in promoting this campaign. The Co-operative are funding this entire event.
