GREAT NEWS! The person who`s rubbish was dumped at a local fishing club and beauty spot has been caught and fined £2500 plus court costs. The man from Woodhouse says he paid someone £30.00 to take the rubbish away, which then, the person went and dumped down Foxstone Dam. He was caught after letters etc were found in the rubbish. It's a great result, so beware who you get to take your rubbish away because you, and you alone are responsible for where it ends up.
After a meeting at Mosborough Miners Welfare on the 18th October 2016, it looks like fracking is coming to Mosborough, Eckington Woods, the Moss Valley and the surrounding area. There is a Facebook page now set up called Mosborough Against Fracking, where you can keep up to date with local news on the subject. We will also post updates on our Facebook and Twitter Pages as well as our website.
