Appetite for WBAGI Fundraising events still strong with the forthcoming Indian cookery lesson and demonstration on 22 and 23 September a sell out!

Tuesday, 13 September 2011:  Curridge, Berkshire:-

The public appetite and support of West Berkshire Against Grundon Incinerator (WBAGI) continues to go from strength to strength as the forthcoming Indian cookery lesson and demonstration evenings are a sell out.

On Thursday, 22 and Friday, 23 September Curridge WI Hall will be packed full of people who have bought tickets to get an authentic Indian cookery lesson and demonstration. This will be provided by a first generation Indian lady who lives in Curridge, and she will share her family secrets showing how to produce incredible Indian food. The attendees will get the chance during the evening to see step by step what they need to do and then also taste a mini sampler of what has been produced along with a glass or two of wine or beer. They will leave the evening armed with the detailed receipes and a pack of all the necessary spices to produce the food. "The Patel’s reputation for producing amazing Indian food is well known locally and we are privileged that they will share some of their family secrets with us to aid our WBAGI fundraising efforts," states Suzanne Ross, Head of WBAGI Fundraising.

"Despite the fact that Grundon who since Easter have been implying they would be submitting their full incinerator planning application shortly, it still has yet to be received by West Berkshire Council Planning Department. WBAGI are not resting on our laurels and we are continuing to maintain momentum with the campaign to fight the proposed Grundon 350,000 tonnes waste incinerator being built in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) at Old Kiln Farm, Curridge. We believe it is important to fight to save the countryside not just for this generation but for future generations as well." states Werner Sanderson, Chair of WBAGI.


West Berkshire Against Grundon Incinerator (WBAGI) has been formed in response to an initial scoping document submitted to West Berkshire Council by Grundon, ahead of a potential planning application to build an Energy from Waste incinerator in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Group consists entirely of local residents who share a common concern over the potential planning  proposal and want to ensure sufficient consideration is taken in the decision making process of such a significant facility.
