There was a great turnout for a Save the Henry Jenkins photoshoot this morning – despite it being windy and damp.
A photographer from the Yorkshire Post turned out to take pictures of the event featuring protest signs and placards and great Henry Jenkins beards and hats.
The crowd were cheery and unanimous in support for saving the Henry Jenkins from demolition and examining viable options for future use.
Richard also featured in a live interview on Radio York early in the morning previewing the protest, Stray FM have visited Kirkby Malzeard to record an interview – and will broadcast an item on Tuesday morning – and the Ripon Gazette have also asked for pictures of our protest. There should be a report in the Yorkshire Post on Monday.
THE BIG DECISION ON THE PLANNING APPLICATION TO DEMOLISH THE HENRY JENKINS COMES NEXT TUESDAY WHEN THE PLANNING COMMITTEE WILL DECIDE ON THE FATE OF THE PUB.
If you can, please meet at 1.15pm Tuesday (February 28) for show of strength outside the Council Offices, Crescent Gardens, Harrogate, HG1 2SG.
