A message to businesses in Hastings and Rye.
Many of you will know we work closely with a range of rail lobbying groups (notably in association with the Bexhill Rail Action Group and Kent and Sussex Connect) focussing on connecting the area to HS1 via Ashford and delivering high speed travel direct into the capital.
With the chancellor of the exchequer having written to secretaries of state earlier this month to launch this year’s spending review, please find below a link to the template lobbying letter to government making the case for support of this proposal. The template has been finalised by the offices of Sally-Ann Hart MP and Huw Merriman MP, for you to send to the email addresses below, as soon as you can.
These names / addresses have been provided by Sally-Ann Hart’s office, who have taken the lead on this letter. For this reason, the letter should not be changed and your covering email should be headed “Delivering High Speed Rail”. You will see that there is space on page 2 for you to include anything about your business relevant to the project.
We encourage as many of you as possible to join us in lobbying the government for this game changing project, so as to create as much awareness and ‘noise’ as possible with these key decision makers. Every letter genuinely counts, so the more we send the more it will register with them, and constituency letters from local businesses and organisations really do get noticed.
Thank you in advance of your support.
