We are thrilled with today’s news – Ken Loach has signed our petition, and here are his Comments, which are so perfect:
‘People need homes – but they also need green spaces. There is no conflict between a properly planned housing programme and the preservation of historic open land. I strongly support saving Manning’s Pit for future generations to enjoy.’
Pilton Cinema has been strongly supportive of our campaign, and we know the organisers will be especially pleased with today’s news, as they love to show Ken’s films, for example. The Angels Share,and, recently, I, Daniel Blake. Sometimes they show old films, so perhaps today’s news gives us an extra reason to ask for a showing of Kes.
