It was a pleasure to meet the dedicated members of Mid-Cheshire Against HS2 who have been diligently campaigning against the vanity project for several years. Their stall at the Royal Cheshire County Show was a non-stop hive of activity as many people stopped and chatted to voice their disapproval at the scheme.
By sheer coincidence HS2 were also running a stall nearby which it has to be said was attracting a lot of negative comments from passers by. Interestingly they had at least 8 staff (donning expensive looking HS2 t-shirts) which seemed like overkill for such a small pitch. We are endeavouring to find out just how much HS2 spent attending.
