Who said satire was dead ? Well, it’s alive and well in Secretary of State for what’s left of the Environment MP Therese Coffey’s constituency. A group of her constituents seem to disagree with just dumping of raw effluent into their local rivers and seas. They have started an X/Twitter account to show their angst.
Lady of the lake?
You may have heard from English legend about the lady of the lake. A mysterious and mythical being and provider of the mystical sword of power Excalibur. Well a new legend is unfolding of the young man of the lake. No sword this time just science, passion and determination to fight the forces of evil that threaten the purity of the lake and the biodiversity that it supports. Over to you Matt:
Save Windermere was founded by Matt Staniek.
“Matt grew up in Windermere, studied Zoology at university, returned home – and then broke his neck in a car accident. He started his campaign in July 2021 after going to the head of Windermere each day for 3 years, whilst recovering both mentally and physically. In this time, he observed the natural world around him, and sadly, the sharp, sudden decline in our rivers and our lake.
Matt was appalled when he found out that sewage is being discharged into our lake and at that moment, decided to dedicate his life to solving this issue.
18 months later, in early 2023, the Save Windermere team expanded. We are now a registered not-for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC), governed by a Board of Directors. We are all based locally in Windermere and care deeply about our wildlife, our community and our lake”.
