As fracking and its associated activities are of general public interest in a society that is more aware of the damage human actions can cause on the environment, on our general health and on prospects of survival, FrackFree Skelmersdale has joined the numerous existing groups countrywide and globally who oppose the introduction and application of fracking into our already fragile environment.

You may think it is a lost cause against the forces that support fracking as their resources and general access to power and politicians far outstrip ours but don’t let that put you off. History shows that real change often has its origin in grassroots.

We welcome any thoughts you may have on fracking, FrackFree Skelmersdale, or related subjects at

Frack Free Skelmersdale

It is NOT over! 

We need to let Cameron know that it is undemocratic to overturn a decision made at local level on a local matter.
