Since Frack Free Ryedale was set up by concerned residents in July 2014 in response to seismic surveys in our area, there have been literally hundreds of posts and articles on this website on a wide variety of topics. This archive collects together the most important and interesting posts as a record of the issues we face and what we have achieved in our struggle against this unwanted, unsafe and unnecessary industry. We hope this will be a reminder of how far we have come as a community group and serve as a source of information for people new to the fight against fracking.
Our first leaflets and posters were printed in August 2014, and you can take a look at them by clicking here. A bit rough and ready, perhaps, but none of us were ‘professional’ campaigners, just local residents who were concerned about fracking and wanted to alert people to the dangers it posed to our communities, health, water, environment and economy.
FFR supported Frack Free East Yorkshire’s fight against fracking company Rathlin’s application for a mini-frack at their wellsite at Crawberry Hill – you can see the guidance we offered here. The site was decommissioned in 2015 and restored to field in 2016. More on this on the FFEY website.
