Service at Hafod

Vicar of Ruabon, Mike Harrison, conducting a service yesterday
opposite the Quarry gates

HEG1 sent this report of yesterday's service at the Quarry:

On Monday 23rd October at approx. 8am, Rev. Mike Harrison, the Vicar of Ruabon, gave a service opposite the gates of the Hafod Landfill site. It was a moving service and pleasing to see how the Reverend had taken the time to prepare some literature especially for the service. The were some very relevant passages quoted from the Bible as well as a special prayer for all the local residents and those affected by this atrocity on our doorsteps.

In attendance were Councillors David Bithell and Paul Pemberton (who is on the planning committee), as well as Mark Isherwood AM. Local MP Martyn Jones and AM Karen Sinclair were not there. The police left the scene before the service commenced. It was good to see the Evening Leader there to take photographs. Reading the Evening Leader later that day, it struck me as apt that the Hewdens cleaning truck was in the background while all of this was going on.

This just goes to show that even though it appears that MANY (not all) of the officials we elected are against us, and that the local and national authorities care little for us and the environment, we are still united and we're not going anywhere. No matter how much others may pray we do.

It's really sad if you are now turning to god to try to stop things. Who's next? Tony Blair?!!!

Feck me Mark Isherwood!!!...the protest group should get a little more selective who they get on their side.When the people who support you stand for everything that you are against then there is something wrong somewhere.

Think you must have forgotten that the Tory Party are the new Greens, and they don't have any policies for anyone to take issue with, so that's not a problem.

As for God, well this is a man-made problem and it's up to us to sort it out, but if people want to express their concern with a service at the gates, that's fine by me.
