Plémont: Hundreds more back trust’s campaign to buy site
Tuesday 27th November 2012, 2:40PM GMT.
THE National Trust for Jersey’s campaign to persuade the States to buy Plémont headland gained more support at the weekend when hundreds more Islanders signed cards to be sent to their politicians.
Despite the strong wind and rain, trust members stood in King Street throughout Saturday to speak to members of the public, and more passers-by signed the Love Plémont cards than the 650 who filled them in on the previous Saturday.
Over 5,000 of these cards have now been sent to States Members before they make their decision on Tuesday, 11 December about whether the Island should buy the headland for returning back to nature.
Chief Minister Ian Gorst and Assistant Chief Minister Sir Philip Bailhache are inviting members of the public to an open meeting about the issue on Wednesday, 5 December at the Town Hall at 7.30 pm.
