THE Ely Standard's "Say No To Mereham" campaign has been made global, thanks to a protest group set up on social networking site Facebook.

Angry residents opposing the proposed development have posted several messages on the group, urging members of Facebook to write to the Secretary of State, sign petitions and do anything they can to stop the plans from going any further.

The group is currently 49 members strong, with news of any developments posted on the site. It also aims to make residents aware of public meetings on the subject.

Since its conception, Facebook has grown in popularity and now has more than 30 million members worldwide. Groups are open to anyone who registers with the site, meaning that the "Say No To Mereham" membership could grow to vast numbers.

An article from the Ely Standard is also available on the site.
