Wendover HS2 Takes Action

Wendover HS2, previously known as WenSTAG, is continuing its campaign to protect Wendover, threatened by the Government’s preferred route for the proposed new High Speed Rail (HS2).

Over 300 local residents attended a meeting organised by Wendover HS2 (previously WenSTAG), in Wendover Memorial Hall on 21 April. County Councillor Marion Clayton was delighted by the high attendance. “This shows the strength of feeling among local residents about the proposed HS2 preferred route. We are really thrilled by this support and hope everyone will get involved in fighting these damaging proposals”.

So local people can see how the route may affect them and the value of their property, Wendover HS2 (previously WenSTAG) is holding an Open Day at the local Library on Saturday, 5th June 2010 between 10am – 4pm.

Members of Wendover HS2, including local Councillors and Wendover Society members, will be on hand to answer questions on all aspects of HS2. Come along and share your ideas for protecting Wendover and The Chilterns from such appalling devastation.
