Supporters have raised hundreds of pounds in a matter of hours towards a campaign to “protect” Woodburn Forest and reservoir.

The online fundraising page was set up by members of Stop the Drill, who oppose InfraStrata’s plan to drill an exploratory borehole at the rural location just outside Carrick.

The crowdfunder page, available here, notes: “We are a group of concerned citizens campaigning to protect the Woodburn Forest and reservoirs. We are seeking support to engage a waste management consultant to respond to the waste management consultation recently advertised by Mid and East Antrim Council. We are also seeking additional funds for legal support and ongoing campaign costs.”
