Frack Free Upton ran a film screening of Gasland 2, following an energy company gaining planning permission to test for coal bed methane at a local site. This choice of film chimed with local concerns and worries that the test drilling could lead to future applications to carry out fracking. The event was organised as part of a wider programme of awareness raising events, including information evenings about fracking, and helped to generate interest in local community energy projects at Ashton Hayes.
