You are legally entitled to use the land at Blacka Moor for Hang gliding or Paragliding. (it is yours)

Please come along on the (29/ 30th July) for a protest. we will pick the best weather day nearer the time.
We intend  to stand up to the Intimidating tenant farmer and the SWT con-men.
Background information about the Great Blacka Moor theft of public funds and there intention to steel the land will be available on the day.

The more spirit we show to fight for our sites the more reluctant our site owners will be to ask us to leave.
Steve.

A pair of brake handles has appeared in the back of my yellow van.  If you think they may be yours let me know.

Hi Keith,

Good to meet you on Saturday at Bradwell and last night at the DSC chat on XC flying. Not sure if you have managed to get in touch yet with Gordon Rig he was watching you flying on Sunday and wondered who you were so it would be good to hook up. I didn't recognise any of the current hangie pilots at last night's meeting otherwise I would have introduced them. Anyway please contact Gordon (gordon.rigg245km@btinternet.com) he will help you understand the sites/conditions and introduce you to the other hangie pilots.

Good luck with your flying and engineering career,


Chris Dervin

In my opinion Sheffield Wild Life Trust Charity )2287928 now is 700638) Like lots of Charities are self serving money for the boys.
There income from grants etc has been 1 million to 2 million each year from when they got control of Blacka moor.
Where has the 12 million + been spent. How have SWT aquired 1.5 million of assets and 6 million pension scheme.

This was one of there stated aims( 4. To promote public use of green spaces, for leisure, recreation and exercise) Great aim if you want to manage the graves trust land. Now in control. Why would they want to remove the section of the Graves Trust document that gives every one access to enjoyment and recreation?
There new stated aims.
 WE WANT TO SEE A LIVING LANDSCAPE - AN AMAZING, GREEN LANDSCAPE FOR THE WILDLIFE AND PEOPLE OF SHEFFIELD AND ROTHERHAM - WHICH IS UNDERSTOOD, ENJOYED AND CARED FOR BY LOCAL PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS.
WE WILL ACHEIVE THIS VISION BY:
CREATING A NETWORK FOR NATURE;
HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE TO VISIT, VALUE AND BE INSPIRED BY NATURE;
HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE AND ORGANISATIONS TAKE ACTION FOR WILDLIFE.

Land in trust could be transferred to a charity? https://www.gov.uk/guidance/how-to-transfer-charity-assets
But it is No use to them with access for every one. Cant resell it, cant make it private, cant exclude you the owners.
This land was left to you in trust. Now broken trust.
Ever wondered how the Red Indians lost America.
