We have a constitution!

Fundraising News

We held a very successful Coffee Morning on 28th May, raising over £2100 towards our legal costs during the enquiry. We had fantastic support from across the community including Derwentside Rotary, Consett Methodist Church, local businesses and dozens of local people who baked, donated prizes or goods to be sold and also turned up on the day to support us. Our crowd fund is still open if anyone would like to donate.


Our community is working together to voice we say NO to Consett incinerator. We don’t want or  need an incinerator to burn commercial and industrial waste for decades in our town or anywhere else. Unfortunately, this is a global fight with the waste to energy industry who ‘greenwash’ what they do. We have support from other campaigns fighting the same fight in their local area and the organisation UK Without Incineration Network (UKWIN). Look what we have achieved so far together, as a community and this is just the beginning …

Our fantastic campaign song, courtesy of local lads ‘Con Dawg & Crew’, turned out to be our Winner’s Anthem!
