'Fun in the Sun'day at Thorne Moor

26.5.02

26th May was 'Fun in the Sun' day, a joint Leeds FoE/Leeds EF! Event.

Friends of the Earth ran a market stall in Thorne in the morning, where locals made cards, placards, posters and balloons with messages to be taken in to Scotts.

In the afternoon we all set off from the local pub in a procession to the works, to hand in all the messages collected earlier.

Here a couple of police tried to prevent people from entering the site and were completely ignored, as everyone walked straight on to the works disrupting the peat processing for an afternoon.

We occupied the works for around 4 hours, keeping ourselves entertained with a kid's ceilidh, football, frisbees & cake.
