VIDEO: Meet local Heathrow supporters near you

Summer is a time for sun, relaxation and holidays. That’s the theory anyway.

Here at Back Heathrow, we have taken a different approach. We have spent August out and about speaking to local people about what they think of Heathrow’s plans for building a new runway.

Below you’ll find a series of short videos of some of the people we’ve spoken to on the streets of west London – click on the images and see if you agree with them about why they back Heathrow expansion.

First up, meet John from Chiswick who tells us that he is all for Heathrow expansion and that he’s sick and tired of waiting for a new runway.

Next is Ed from Hounslow who thinks that the new jobs that will come from expansion will really benefit the local community.

Finally, we have Maureen from Staines who’s proud that Heathrow provides so much local employment and she wants to keep that momentum going in the future.

These are just some of the conversations we’ve had with local people this summer. We’ll be releasing more short films in the next few weeks and if you see a Back Heathrow team on a high street near you, please do stop and say hello!
