progress on the Protest????

Just a quick update, things are looking promising but we are still treading gently before any celebrating may begin: the Town council has called a special meeting for this coming Monday to discuss possible 'compromise regarding the flood-prevention works including the retaining of the island'.
Obviously, the pressure from the public - and our 'duck' protest was only one of many (people were writing to the Town hall directly, publishing pamphlets, signing web-petitions etc) - must be ringing alarm bells. A thorough investigation of how these works came to be commissioned is obviously something the authorities wouldn't like to come about....
Well, we shall see. More on Monday
