This campaign has ended.

Lizard Loves the Little Big Gig

Reinstate the license for Henry’s Campsite to hold live music events. Allow them to continue their service to our rural community in organising live music and events including the Little Big Gig.

Why is this important?

The Little Big Gig - among the other events staged by Henry’s Campsite - boosts tourism for the village. Far from being detrimental, they are a draw card for other local businesses. The Little Big Gig itself is held in late September, out of high season and provides a welcome influx of visitors before a long winter. This is an extremely rural community and events such as these are key in keeping us close knit. The village socialises together, bonds are formed and the village thrives.

The council have threatened to close down the festival despite considerable effort to accommodate noise complaints. Next week they will make a decision. Will you sign this petition to let them know you want the festival to continue?

How it will be delivered

Reasons for signing

  • Who wouldn’t 😂
  • it's getting embarassing i think i might pack it in but it gets easier when i start backing in i got a gold star once for doggy paddling when i was a youngster but it just doesn't cut the mustard when you're swimming in the sea that's why i'll only go out up to my knees nah i might go a little deeper than that but i'm happier if i can stand up i've got some ham 'n' cheese sandwiches
  • i was looking forward to catching some waves but now i'm just caught up in the break water plus i've got this lifeguard guy on my case with his megaphone on and he's going on 'stay between the flags' but i'm flat on my face and, 'it takes more than flippers to be a good swimmer' i guess i should've put 'em on once i was in there but i'm gonna make mistakes 'cause i'm just a beginner
