Worksop Against Incineration campaign group are hosting a Coffee Morning at Rhodesia Village Hall on Saturday.

The group are hoping to raise enough funds between 10.30am-12pm, to enable them to print off leaflets informing people how to object to the project.

The group also need money to keep on running.

Previously the group have said they have been stopped from having a stall on Worksop market as Bassetlaw District Councillors have complained about them being there.

Norman Biggs said:”The coffee morning will be a chance for people to come in and have a chat about what we do.”

“You will recollect that Bassetlaw District Council officers allowed us to have a market stall back in April for our first petition signing free of charge even though we were willing to pay.”

“The market traders did not object at all.”

“So this meant for our second petition signing we were relegated to standing on the pavement outside Argos.”

“To date over 5000 or so people have signed our petition against the proposed Waste Incinerator in Worksop and we are always getting new volunteers to help us fight against the proposals.”

The group’s last meeting was held at the Shireoaks Inn, where guest speaker Shlomo Dowen, national co-ordinator of UK Without Incineration (UKWIN) answered questions from the audience.

Norman added: “ There will be a cake stall with a raffle and some prizes.”

“We welcome any donations and they will be much appreciated. It will be a great morning.”
