Closing date rapidly approaching.

Tomorrow night's game will be the last chance to sign up to the paper version on the BristolsNotTrash petition.

The petition closing date is drawing near, and we would like to ask anyone who has not brought their petition back yet to do so tomorrow night.

The petition was set up by MP Charlotte Leslie in response to the TRASH group who have lodged a Judicial Review which questions the validity of the planning permission granted to J Sainsbury’s on the current Memorial Stadium site.

The online version of the petition states: "We, the under-signed, are dismayed at the 'TRASH' group's actions in delaying and obstructing the building of a supermarket at the former Bristol Rovers site, which crucially prevents Bristol Rovers, and moreover the whole city, from having a new stadium.

"We express concern that the group have set up a company limited by guarantee, with the intent of going bankrupt, in order to avoid legal fees; express deep concern that the public purse will be paying much of this cost; state that the TRASH group is not representative of us, and call on the TRASH group to cease the obstruction of achieving the stadium the city so badly needs."

Completed petitions can be returned to Pirate Leisure at the Memorial Stadium or the Supporters Club shop.
