|A Message from Mark Avery:
Thank you for registering for this Hen Harrier Day event in the Peak District on 10 August 2014.
Here are some details and a link to where you can get even more details.
Chris Packham is attending the event and will be available to talk to, cuddle and be photographed for most of the day (as will I but I know which one you will go for…).
At 10am, we will assemble by the Derwent Dam, a couple of minutes stroll from the Fairholmes Visitor Centre for a group photograph. Those photographs will be sent to the media to publicise public outrage at the illegal killing of Hen harriers by the grouse shooting industry. This, and events in Lancashire and Northumberland, will be the first public events to protest at the killing of Hen Harriers.
There will be a few brief words of welcome, encouragement and thanks, from Chris Packham, probably myself and maybe a few others but it won’t last very long.
After the group photograph you are free to mix and mingle with like-minded people, eat a bacon sandwich at the visitor centre, go for a stroll or head off for other parts of the Peak District.
We are expecting quite an attendance, and the area is busy on any fine, sunny Sunday in August (which we hope it will be). The link gives details of public transport options of attending the event. The car parks will almost certainly get very full so please park sensibly and it will be a good idea to arrive in good time to get a parking place.
Thank you for being prepared to stand up and be counted for the Hen Harrier.
