I needed to put some posters up in the village this morning to promote my forthcoming exhibition of paintings in two weeks’ time so I nipped round the corner to the post office, hairdresser and library.
Paying those tolls is such a waste of time!
I thought it would only take me a few minutes but I kept being stopped by people whose faces I knew from around the village and waiting at the bus stop but had never spoken to before. They all said ‘we heard you on the radio/saw you in the paper/watched you on the telly and think what you’re doing is great!’ And all asked how they could help. So for anyone who can spare a moment, here’s what you can do:
- sign the online petition here
- ask your friends, family and work colleagues to sign the online petition. Forward them this link http://www.petitiononline.com/SwTollBr
- if you live or work locally put up a poster in your window. Email me at jane -at- janetomlinson.com and I’ll send you one.
- send an email to David Cameron MP and tell him what you think
- send an email to Councillor David Robertson who is Executive Member for Transport on Oxfordshire County Council and tell him what you think
- find out who your district councillor is by using this clickable map and send them an email telling them what you think
- come and see me at my exhibition in May or email me so I know I’m not alone in this!
