CADS 2017 Grand Prize Draw



To see the list of winners please follow this link CADS 2017 GRAND PRIZE DRAW RESULTS

Derek Thomas MP and Cornwall Councillor Julian Rand both show support on 18.11.2017

Local action group Cornwall Against Dean Superquarry (CADS) is delighted to announce that its 2017 grand prize draw has raised over £6,425. This money will be used to fund ongoing campaign costs against Shire Oak Quarries Limited who have made it clear they plan to upscale and re-open Dean Quarry on the Lizard Peninsula to build a fleet of tidal lagoons.

Talented artists and local businesses generously donated prizes in support of the campaign, and tickets were sold locally and online throughout the summer. On Saturday evening, Roskilly’s Farm played host to the well attended prize draw and members of the community were also given a campaign update. Winning tickets were drawn by Derek Thomas MP and Cornwall Councillor, Julian Rand MBE. Winning ticket holders will be personally contacted and winning numbers will be published on the CADS website by 30th November.

Of the CADS campaign, Councillor Julian Rand said, “This community has a bit of fight, a bit of teeth and this is simply wonderful: I applaud you”. According to local MP Derek Thomas, “Dean Quarry has got to be the best-known quarry on the planet. You are a small community right at the southerly point of the United Kingdom and have in some way dominated the agenda around renewable energy”.

CADS would like to take this opportunity to thank Derek Thomas, Julian Rand and everyone who donated prizes and purchased tickets in support in our campaign. The Manacles MCZ was designated in late 2013, in the first group of the UK’s MCZs. If this MCZ is breached by Shire Oak Quarries’ proposed development, it will result in long-term environmental damage and, as a test case for all MCZs, will bode ill for all the current and proposed UK MCZs.

The small Cornish communities and local businesses on the Lizard Peninsula have, for nearly three years now, been threatened with the re-opening and massive upsizing of Dean Quarry. The fight to save the Manacles MCZ continues.
