CAMPAIGNERS seeking to prevent the development of the controversial SnOasis resort in Great Blakenham are holding a sponsored walk tomorrow to raise money for their legal fight.

SnOasis Concern is hoping to raise enough money to pay for representation at the public inquiry into the proposed new holiday centre which is expected to take place next year.

And they also plan the raise awareness by showing walkers a view of the area that would be built on and organising a yellow blimp to hover at the height the ski slope would reach.

Ken Southall, a committee member with SnOasis Concern, said: We're looking forward to it and hopefully we can raise money and awareness at the same time.

“As we walk round we will point out sights of interest and see the height of the proposed slope.

“There will also be lots of balloons as well as the big blimp in the sky.

“And it will bring home just exactly what we would be committed to if it gets the go-ahead.”

There are two possible walks around the proposed site of the centre a full five-mile route or a shorter 1.5 mile route.

Teams of walkers have already registered, but individuals can still turn up to take part in the event.

The five-mile walk starts at 10am and the shorter walk an hour and a half later.

Both walks start at Cottage Farm in Little Blakenham - follow the brown signs to the woodland walk.
