For those of you that can spare a moment to respond to an online
petition, we have two petitions for you this month.
Sherwood forest, home to ancient trees, rare wildlife and Robin
Hood is in danger. A huge energy company, Ineos, is trying to get
permission to explore underneath it for gas. Britain's most famous
woodland could soon be filled with lorries, heavy machinery and
A government agency, called the Forestry Commission, can decide
whether to let the energy company into the forest. They manage all
the forests in the UK and are supposed to protect them. They know
the risks of letting Ineos into Sherwood - but are probably coming
under pressure to let the deal go ahead.
The deal could be signed any day now. A huge public outcry could
give the Forestry Commission the push they need to stand up to
Ineos and protect our ancient forest.
Can you sign the petition to protect Sherwood
Forest before it's too late?
It's been revealed that the government could allow a huge new
tax hike to be inflicted on the industry, one that could leave
businesses and schools that install solar panels with a 6-8 times
higher business rates tax bill.
Industry experts are raising the alarm that such a sudden and huge
tax rise would prove catastrophic for swathes of UK solar firms.
That's why it's vital we speak up now, before the changes are
approved in early 2017.
Please add your name to
the petition and help push back.
