In defense of Titnore Woods

21.08.2002 01:20

The future of the ancient Titnore Woods in Durrington, threatened by property developers and their bulldozers is defended by a well-supported local campaign against a threatened 900-home estate. However the local police seem to be overly jobsworthy in their bid to identify "organisers" of the campaign. Police questioned woman who helps produce local independent newsletter 'The Porkbolter' about plans by protest group Ye Olde Friends of Titnore to deliver a letter on Sunday September 1 to the landowner, and were eager to be provided with names. Previously Worthing police hassled a Titnore Lane resident with repeated visits because she was displaying a "Save Titnore Woods" placard. The letter in question is a special scroll inviting the landowner to enter into a covenant with the people of Worthing to preserve the future of Titnore Woods "for our children, our children's children and our children's children's children".
