Mayfields has been dealt a series of seismic blows this week in the form of a relentless barrage of deeply damaging National… and even International media coverage.
A rural revolution is now gathering pace after local land owner, Robert Worsley went public over his decision to turn down Mayfields’ millions to protect our countryside.
He was offered millions of pounds for his 550 acre farm but refused the money saying;
We are seeing lovely rural Sussex being eroded away by ever increasing sizes of development.”
But Robert is not alone… he is just one of 200 land owners in the area who have said they will not deal with Mayfields – The Telegraph will be publishing a feature on some more of these countryside heroes this weekend.
The combined acreage of their land is 4,300 acres, “Not for sale!”
The Mail will be telling Robert’s story in a 2,000 word in-depth article to be published within the next few days – he is keen to stress that he is not the only land owner to have chosen countryside over riches. LAMBS would like to thank every single land owner large and small who has rejected this unscrupulous company.[hr]
