Stroud’s Jojo Mehta is at about 8.53 in this film ‘Gandalf’s Quest – High Noon …. Anti-fracking event’.
See other films in this ‘quest’ here by intermetmedia. A united action by a new alliance of groups opposed to fracking and CSG/coalbed methane operations in the Wye Valley AONB, which straddles two counties … Herefordshire & Gloucestershire. Rick Guest, aka Gandolph. is emulating Tolkein’s hero and, in this case going to London (not Port Talbot the original muse) DAY ONE of a four day event starting off from Barclays Bank, Hereford and walking to Hoarwithy. The original inspirational shires – 20th August 2016. This is the first step in a journey all the way to Downing Street for local resident Rick Guest. Rick is determined to highlight the threat of fracking in Herefordshire – because the government is planning to allow drilling for shale gas around Symonds Yat, Welsh Newton and Ross on Wye. Rick took on the persona of Gandalf, donning a wizard’s cloak as he began his walk from Hereford to Symonds Yat in a Tolkien-style quest through the shire. He invited concerned residents to join him at midday on Saturday 20 August at Yat Rock, Symonds Yat. His journey continues from Bank Holiday Monday (29th August) through the forest of Dean on foot and cycling, onward arriving eventually at 10 Downing Street.
