FTF Colleagues Listed in Top 1000 Most Influential Londoners

We would like to congratulate Jenny Bates, London Coordinator at Friends of the Earth and John Stewart of HACAN  who have both been listed in the Top 1000 influential people in London for the second year running.

Jenny and John have worked closely with FTF since it's formation and continue to do so today. They have inspired, supported and shared their wealth of knowledge. However their work with FTF is but a small part of their overall work with other individuals and groups.

Such recognition is well deserved for two such hard working and committed individuals.

John and Jenny will both be present at the FTF Judicial Review hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice, The Strand, tomorrow (Thursday 18 November) , commencing at 10:30am.

Listings from the ES:

Jenny Bates, Friends of the Earth, London co-ordinator

John Stewart, Hacan Clearskies, campaigner
Long-serving leader of the main pressure group opposing Heathrow expansion, Stewart is building on the success of the foiled third runway by calling for a block on any further increase in plane flights into London. Has slammed the building of a high-speed rail line as a “white elephant”.
