Thank you for everything you did, Dame Cheryl Gillan.

Stop HS2 are very sorry to hear of the death of Dame Cheryl Gillan, a long term opponent of HS2.

Penny Gaines, chair of Stop HS2, said “Cheryl was one of the first members of Parliament to speak out against High Speed Two when it was announced in 2010. She made numerous speeches against HS2, and used her roles in Parliament to examine the project in detail. Cheryl remained opposed to the effects of HS2 right up until the end. We would like to pass our condolences on to her family at this sad time.”

These are just some of the things we will remember her for
