POLICE AND MENDIP ATTEMPT TO PULL PLUG ON GREEN AWARENESS EVENT

HIGH COURT INJUNCTION TO BE HEARD MONDAY 27TH JULY

Big Green Gathering instructs legal team to fight injunction

The Big Green Gathering, a five day eco-awareness event is determined to fight for the right to hold its annual event on the Mendip Hills, near Cheddar. The environmental event, which combines practical advice and demonstrations on sustainable lifestyles combined with entertainment powered by the wind, the sun and people is threatened with closure on Monday, 27th July, just thirty-six hours before it opens to the public on Wednesday.

Mendip District Council have applied to the High Court in London for an injunction to stop the Big Green Gathering from going ahead, despite the fact that the Council granted a license for the Big Green Gathering on 30th June, 2009 and a multi-agency meeting was held on 23rd July where last minute details for the event were progressed.

Probably not - courts are closed, and I doubt the lawyers will want to talk - they're probably working over the weekend, but they'll have enough to do without fielding phone calls from the public, and obviously they would need permission from their clients.
