'Friends of the wilderness centre' are a voluntary organisation formed to support the wilderness centre and to keep it going as a environmental education centre.
i believe children need outdoor learning experiences, they need to know about things that cannot be taught from a classroom. every child should have a safe place to learn about the world around them whilst breathing fresh air.
so on thursday they held a public launch, if they can raise enough money the council will sell the wilderness to their charitable trust.
i of course wanted to go to show my support and my mother, councillor Jackie Fraser asked me to not only come along, but to come along wearing this...
it was my job to stand on the side of the road and shout and wave and jump about at oncoming cars to try and get them to come and check out the launch.
it was actually quite funny, there were other people all holding boards that read 'SAVE THE WILDERNESS' and i ran about like a mad person.
every time somebody honked their car horn we all cheered.
