Not ‘fake’ to want best for Heathrow

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

ON WED­NES­DAY, De­cem­ber 3, I was at the Air­ports Com­mis­sion’s pub­lic ev­i­dence ses­sion at the Park Inn at Heathrow.

The event was a well-bal­anced de­bate be­tween those who op­pose ex­pan­sion as well as peo­ple, like me, who are keen for Heathrow to grow and for our lo­cal com­mu­nity to pros­per.

As a sup­porter of the Back Heathrow cam­paign, I was re­ally dis­ap­pointed to hear some peo­ple re­fer­ring to me and other sup­port­ers as ‘fake’.

I have lived and worked in Hilling­don for over 15 years and in the Heathrow area for over 30 years, and like a majority of lo­cal res­i­dents who live and work here, I ap­pre­ci­ate the huge ben­e­fits that Heathrow brings.

Ex­pan­sion is vi­tal for our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, no mat­ter how much those who op­pose it and try to shout us down. BARRY NEL­SON WEST Mid­hurst Gar­dens
