Yesterday we took down the banner at the Yeo Dale Hotel that has been such an influential symbol of our campaign.
We did not take the banner down because the battle is over. It needs cleaning, and some small repairs. It will go into storage for a while, but the moment it is needed again, it will go up once more. It will then, like the “Watch for Orange” posters be a quick way of sending out an alert to everyone. We would like to repeat our thanks to Paul and Sarah at the Hotel for their wonderful support.
Other signs and posters around Pilton may come down, for the same reason, but new ones will go up, because we want to make sure that the message is clear to everyone – we have not saved Manning’s Pit yet, and we will not give up until we have done so.
