Letter from Silke Roskilly, Chair of Cornwall Against Dean Superquarry (CADS).


Dear Members & Friends,

It was really good to see many of you at the meeting on Tuesday 20th of June. We successfully launched the CADS Grand Prize Draw 2017. We have been so lucky to secure some fantastic prizes such as week-long holidays on the Lizard Peninsula, a selection of sculptures & painting from well-known international and local artists, a VIP tour of the Emmerdale farm set with Chris Chittell including one night in a four-star hotel, and many more prizes.

We now need your help to set up a rota of volunteers selling tickets from the Croust House yard. We are proposing shifts from 12noon to 3pm and 3pm to 6pm. But really any time you can give would be greatly appreciated. It is such a good opportunity to reach and talk to as many visitors as possible. We all, local residence as well as visitors, share the same concerns about our immediate environment. We have had some very good feedback from places that already sell tickets and we need to keep the momentum going whilst there are visitors in good numbers about.

We must make use of this quiet period in our fight to stop the re-opening and upscaling of Dean Quarry, as we are sure that this fight is by no means over yet. We need to be ready and able to commission costly specialists reports, etc when the marine application is finally being made.

Could you please email or call me so that I can arrange the rota and let everyone know who will be available when. I know that we all get very busy in the summer but please remember ‘many hands make light work’. My contact details are:


01326 280479 - daytime
01326 280556 – evenings


For those of you further afield who are unable to help sell tickets locally, you can purchase tickets online by following this link. If you wish to sell tickets further afield still follow this link but mark your e-mail as "Agent". Tickets can then be posted to you. To see the catalogue of prizes follow this link.


Thank you very much for your continued support!
