Yesterday’s Express & Echo website carried both stories of Save The Red Lion Campaign getting the Red Lion listed as an Asset of Community Value and the removal of the Campaign banner from Sidbury. The paper’s story is at - http://www.exeterexpressandecho.co.uk/Residents-condemn-childish-behaviour-campaign/story-19812248-detail/story.html.
It is good to note that the person who removed the banner decided to return it. Unfortunately they didn’t bother to erected it, this was done by a Campaign Supporter who lives near to where the banner was sited.
We did say at the time that the banner was taken that this would guarantee local press coverage for the Campaign. And it did!
