The MRA organized a fundraising event to help our cause to stop the Springwater Sprawl. After exceeding a challenge to obtain 5000 signatures to stop the Springwater mega development, by non other than novelist and environmentalist Margaret Atwood, we were pleased to welcome her to Midhurst on June 22.

And what a great day for Midhurst and rural living it was! Over 350 people showed up to say that their community, farms and water were worth fighting for. Thanks to everyone!
