Notes from our meeting on 5th May 2021


Feedback from 3 sitters at the meeting: MB (XR Tring) sat for 12 mins in Berko with a lot of abuse; J (XR Chesham) sat on the road in Amersham for a short time and then longer on the pavement, where he received a lot of support; Sue sat for 2 hours in Harpenden, with about 65-70% support, and was arrested, charged and bailed with a court date of 28th May. L has already signed up for the next RO1 wave, as have 600 people!

M shared this idea which was received with enthusiasm. Date set for July 17th. March from supermarket to supermarket with a letter, possibly asking for a refill station.
