Hampshire Against Fluoridation to hold meeting
9:50am Friday 25th May 2012 in Fluoride
ANTI-fluoride campaigners are holding the AGM of their action group tomorrow.
Hampshire Against fluoridation, which has led the fight against plans to add the chemical to the tap water of 200,000 people in parts of Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams, is urging interested members of the public to hear about how its campaign is progressing.
The group has been a vocal and active opponent of South Central Strategic Health Authority's scheme to fluoridate water since before the decision was taken to approve it, in February 2010.
As reported, health bosses are currently working with Southern Water on the specifics of how to put fluoride in tap water, after last year defeating a High Court legal challenge aimed at having the controversial project ruled unlawful.
The SHA is hopeful fluoridation will be in place by next year, before it is disbanded as part of the Coalition Government's reforms of the NHS.
HAF members have continued to actively campaign against the scheme, and will be holding their annual general meeting at Central Baptist Church, Devonshire Road, Southampton, at 2pm.
