Dear Goodwin Sands SOS supporters,
I am attaching a short article that was published in The Sunday Times on 26th February, which highlights the issues associated with dredging the Goodwin Sands
‘Discovery by dredging’ is not acceptable practice, especially in an area well known to contain the final resting places of young airmen who lost their lives in the service of their countries.
Next week we will be meeting the MMO in London to get an update on the current status of the dredging licence application and to discuss the ‘way forward for future engagement’ between them and us. We have been sending them a steady flow of information over the past few months so it will be interesting to hear what they have to say!
Thank you as always for your continued support and please do keep spreading the word and encouraging everyone you know to sign the petition.
Joanna Thomson and Fiona Punter
