The Rocky Hill Coal Mine is threatening the beautiful Gloucester Valley.

Dear Members and Supporters
I am pleased to say that due to overwhelming demand the fundraiser, Day of Music in the Country on 23 June 2018 is now fully booked and no more tickets are available for sale.

If you were planning to go but had not yet bought a ticket, it is likely there will be other fundraiser events in the near future.
In the meantime your donation would be most welcome.
Bank account details opposite.

Warm regards

If approved the Rocky Hill Coal Mine will extend mining in the valley for decades.

Schools and hundreds of homes are within the 5km health danger zone of the project’s first stage. Future expansion could be as close as 1km from the built up area of Gloucester.

The source of health and environmental problems will be closer to people and the risks will last longer than the Stratford mine.

In a world of oversupply and industry decline due to energy competition why should another coal mine be imposed on the rural community of Gloucester?

Dear Members and Supporters
Groundswell Gloucester’s application to be joined as a party to the proceedings was heard in the Land & Environment Court on Friday. Despite vehement opposition from GRL which fought tooth and nail to prevent the community from being directly represented, the Court today determined that Groundswell Gloucester could be joined to the proceedings and able to raise the issues of climate change and social impacts of the proposed mine. This is a wonderful preliminary victory.

Being joined to the proceedings means that we will be able to present our own evidence and cross examine witnesses. Of course this will not come cheaply and we must now turn to the task of undertaking some significant fundraising. We will be calling a public meeting within the next few weeks.
