Save Abington Scout Campstite

2,069 Signatures Goal: 500

Abington Campsite has been in scout ownership since 1933 and generations of young people have enjoyed many events here. The local scouting committeehave sought (against the parish council's wishes) and recived planning permission to redevelop part of the site for housing. To dothis it would involve selling the site which would lose a great space for generations to come.

Dear all, Its been a couple of years since the Abington campaign, and thank you all for your support. Since then I have started another petition, calling for Park Astérix Theme Park to retire the dolphins and sea lions it holds to a sea sanctuary. They have been captured from the sea and now live in tiny tanks. The conditions are awful so please join me in calling for the end to this prison and share the petition with everyone you know.

    My godfather contributed much to purchase the site. After purchase I frequently went with him to plant trees, deepen the pool at the bottom of the field and develop the facility. I often camped there with fellow scouts and know that such a great facility within reach of Cambtidge and many villages is irreplaceable.Money is no alternative.

    Save it - once sold its gone forever. And whilst your at is sack all those scouters who were involved with selling it. They do not deserver to wear the uniform and have failed to keep the basic scout law and promise. Baden would turn in his grave.
