Thread Name: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
What is proposed:-

On Thursday 30th January 2003 at Fleetwood Lancashire England (just up the coast from Blackpool and home of the Fylde Folk Festival) The BBC Blue Bus is coming to the Steamer Hotel - the Blue bus is a community interest and IT equipped bus that visit various locations during the week, interviews local people, explains IT and allows access to the internet etc via 6 onboard computers - at 4.05 pm there is a 25 minute program transmitted from the bus to Radio Lancashire listeners.

John Bond and myself will be at the steamer from early morning through the day, we will take our musical instruments (but don't let that put you off!), the Petition for people to sign and details of how to sign online (hopefully via The Blue Bus) and details of EDM 331 and how to contact MPs etc......

It would be great if as many people as possible could come along, bring instruments (and as long as the Landlord OKs it) have a play and sing..... maybe get interviewed? Help pass the word and explain the situation to members of the unaware public.

I know it's a working day for most of you - and many will be restricted by travel - but pass on the message to anyone you think might be interested and would like to come along - The Steamer is right next to the Market (which is open) so hopefully there should be a few people about having a look at the Blue Bus.........

There has also been talk of a "phone-in" on radio Lancashire re. new proposals
