Can there be some kind of emergency meeting with regard to illegal filming in and around GLE?In Fann Street this week alone we’ve had Two film crews, the first lot left behind 10 helium gas canisters (full size) and litter strewn everywhere. The second lot (tonight) were moved on 3 times by the police, and we had to endure 3 hours of disturbance!!The CoL Police received numerous calls, regarding the filming, only to turn up half an hour later, and stayed for approx 5 minutes and politely asked them to move on!!

I'll put you on the list ... which is rather long! But we do have some empty bags so it rather depends on how many people above you take them up. Once things are settled I'll let you know. We are going to try and find another location but I suspect that we wont get permission in time for this year's planting season.
We are hoping to get either a section on this site or maybe get a Facebook page so that we can keep people in touch with what is happening.
