The Astle Court Protest Goes On
CTARA continue to fight on, on behalf of all Chelford residents, as they try to retain the community use of the Astle Court room.
A large number of Chelford residents came out into a bit of rare Spring sunshine to protest against the £10 per hour hiring charge, newly levied by Peaks and Plains Housing Trust.
As villagers gathered for a photo call from the Guardian group of newspapers, they were supported by ward councillor, Cllr George Walton, CEC Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr. Paul Bates and Chelford Parish Councillor, Cllr. Kakoli Chaudhuri.
There was a strong sense of unity and community spirit amongst the protestors as they made their case peacefully and with good humour.
