From Harrogate to Sheffield and Hebden Bridge to Whitby, local campaigners this weekend took action in 17 towns and cities across Yorkshire in a coordinated day of action. Their message was clear: Yorkshire Water must pull the plug on grouse shooting.

Campaigners held signs, handed out tens of thousands of leaflets and asked customers to sign postcards to Richard Flint, CEO of Yorkshire Water, urging the company to pull the plug on grouse shooting. The event saw a huge increase in support for the campaign.

Yorkshire Water continues to allow grouse shooting on its land, despite being fully aware that wild animals are being eradicated and peatland damaged by burning on its watch to boost red grouse populations for shooting.

Following months of campaigning by Ban Bloodsports on Yorkshire’s Moors, the League Against Cruel Sports and our supporters, Yorkshire Water announced in March that it would consider alternatives to grouse shooting and review the future of the bloodsports on its moorland in Calderdale.

This is a step in the right direction, but it’s not enough – wildlife continues to be persecuted and the environment harmed whilst the utility company props up grouse shooting on its land.

Thank you to all the campaigners who took part in the day of action. Here are some photos from actions across the county:

Dynamic evolution of the alpha (α) and beta (β) keratins has accompanied integument diversification and the adaptation of birds into novel lifestyles. BMC Evol Biol. 2014;14:249. doi:10.1186 s12862-014-0249-1 Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article. Keratin contains amino acids that determine their structure and function. The structure is so intact that keratin cannot dissolve in water or any other solvent. When your hair is treated using keratin, body chemicals do not affect this protein. Keratin serums, shampoos, and conditioners can’t make the same claims as a keratin treatment in a salon. But they do claim to make hair more damage-resistant and repair hair that has been dried out by heat and hair dye. To identify these products, look for the words “keratin hydro lysates” in the ingredients list. Researchers concluded in 2013 that the active components of keratin were a promising ingredient for people that wanted stronger hair.
    Botox effects typically last for three to four months. People with a higher metabolism or people that are physically active may need more Botox or more frequent injections. Finding the magic number of Botox units for you will depend on your muscle strengths and how much movement (or not) you want during facial expressions.  Some people may go in for a Botox procedure even more often if they are treating wrinkles all over their face and not just their forehead. Whatever the case, there are some cases in which you may need more than 10 to 12 units of Botox. For example, the 11 lines that occur between your eyebrows tend to be quite deep compared to other wrinkles that occur on the forehead and more units will be needed.  The Botox slows down the use of those muscles, preventing lines from developing (or at least delaying the development of the lines). One of the most common places for preventative Botox is to the forehead and glabellar area. Preventative Botox can prevent deep lines, which can make you look older and tired and are harder to treat once they develop

  8. naturally like your web site but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I will certainly come again again.

  9. of course like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.
