Donate now to stop a crime against our planet

Right under our noses, a Crime against our environment is taking place. Anglian Water is preparing an application to move a fully-functioning sewage works less than a mile to a new location on arable farmland in the Green Belt at Honey Hill between the villages of Fen Ditton, Horningsea and Quy. They are doing this with £227 million of public money too1. Save Honey Hill will challenge this application and need legal advice in its preparation and legal representation. Save Honey Hill need £50,000 to cover the cost of the required legal expertise.

This is our last chance to stop the relocation. Please donate whatever you can (no amount is too small):

£13k raised. £27k to go!

Fundraising update

Since we distributed the fundraising leaflet amongst villagers and local businesses around Fen Ditton, Horningsea, Quy and Teversham we have been heartened by the response from all four villages.

Many people and businesses across the area have donated. From being initially daunted by the prospect of going up against a network of large commercial interests, those donations and letters of support have really given us energy and enthusiasm to continue. It so helps to know that we have wide support throughout the villages. Thank you! Community works!

We still have a long, long way to go though. Our JustGiving page is now live but you can still contact us and offer support.

It’s not just donations we need. We really need expertise from residents with experience in planning and protecting the Greenbelt.
