A CAMPAIGN to prevent an airport access road from disturbing the graves of people's loved ones is gathering pace with the announcement of a public meeting.
The mother and daughter team of Edna and Natasha La-Mothe created the Save Cherry Lane Cemetery campaign in response to a map from Heathrow Airport owner BAA revealing plans for expansion.
Since April they have gathered names on petitions, taken part in protest marches and written to other organisations asking for help and now are ready to face the public on a larger scale.
The meeting will take place on Wednesday October 1 with Hayes and Harlington MP John McDonnell and Hillingdon Council planning and transportation cabinet member Councillor Keith Burrows expected to attend.
Natasha, of Hayes, is hoping for a good turn-out and said: "The main part of the meeting will be a presentation by myself about everything we have found out so far.
"I feel I have ruffled feathers within BAA and now want to clarify the situation for the public and then open the floor to questions so no-one is left in doubt about the threat we face.
"There have been articles in the press, coverage on the television and yet still there are people unsure what is being proposed. This meeting will aim to put that right."
Posters about the meeting, at Barnhill Community Centre, in Ayles Road, Hayes, from 7.30pm are currently going up around the borough and all are welcome to attend.
