ANTI-shale gas campaigner Gayzer Frackman will warm up for a 15-day protest walk from Lancashire to Downing Street with a 20-mile sponsored stroll this weekend.

The Fylde Coast resident, who claims his house has been damaged by earth tremors caused by drilling in the region, is walking from Lytham Windmill to Banks, near Southport, on Sunday to raise cash for his bigger trek next month.

Gayzer will be hitting the road during November to cover more than 240 miles to deliver a letter which he hopes to eventually hand to new EU President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels voicing concerns about fracking.

“We have tried to reach out to David Cameron and been ignored,” he said. “So I will be setting off from Downing Street and make my way to Brussels and hopefully get a platform to at least raise awareness of the dangers we face.” In Brussels he will meet up with a man who has walked from Romania.

I will be arriving on the 1st of December and meeting up with Sandu who will have completed a walk from the far side of Rumania which began on the 30th August and completing close to 1,500miles.

On Sunday a local Anti-Fracking campaigner will be starting his sponsored twenty mile walk from Lytham Windmill at 8am. He will be making his way to Banks near Southport.

Gayzer Frackman is raising money for a fifteen day walk that will take him from Downing Street to Brussels to deliver a letter that will hopefully be handed to the new EU President Jean-Claude Juncker.

On the 17th of November he will be handing a letter questioning David Cameron, asking why he has ignored letters from over twenty-five towns and villages, voicing their concerns that fracking will impact on their families, health and homes.

He has had time to look at all the evidence provided showing there is no real regulation and the evidence from the USA, Canada and Australia were it has had a devastating effect on communities.

WALK THE WALK 4 is the last of his visits to Downing Streett! We have tried to reach out to David Cameron and we been ignored so I will be setting off from there and make my way to Brussels and hopefully get a platform to at least raise awareness of the dangers we face.
