A LAST push to get 10,000 signatures on a petition calling on the county council not to sell Radlett Airfield to Helioslough is going ahead this weekend.

The number of signatures is around 9,000 and members of action group STRiFE will be in St Albans city centre this Saturday morning and in Radlett village centre from 10am to midday with a paper petition in an effort to reach the required number of signatures to trigger a debate on the issue at the full county council meeting on March 26.

The petition is also in The Boot pub in Market Place, St Albans, and the online petition can be accessed at https://consult.hertsdirect.org/petitions/petition?petition_id=74614

Should the petition reach 10,000 signatures, it would make history as the first with that number of signatures to go to County Hall.

Cathy Bolshaw of STRiFE, urged people to sign the petition and warned that apathy could be its worst enemy right now.

It’s always at this time of year that I begin to look up again. Winter somehow forces us to look down, maybe at our feet to make sure we’re avoiding the worst of the mud, but maybe also because the overcast skies have a way of dampening our gaze if not our spirits. But there is more to it than that for I find my eyes are actually drawn upwards, first by the skylark, rising higher and higher from the ground, pouring out its cascade of song, and then by a host of other natural forms.
