Are You A Victim Of Corporate Business ?
An open meeting was held in Stroud, Gloucestershire 11/0719 to update the community about an incinerator project currently being commissioned to burn waste.
I went along with several hats on, first, as a local who had vehemently opposed the use of last century technology to address an issue that requires a completely different solution.
