THE Grafton chapter of Knitting Nannas Against Gas (KNAG) held a knit-in at the Glenugie anti-CSG protest site yesterday.

Protesters have been at the drill site on Avenue Road since coal seam gas company Metgasco commenced clearing and construction activities last week.

"The Nannas wanted to express their support for the protest at Glenugie," said spokesperson Leonie Blain.

"At this particular site there are serious concerns about the impact the drilling will have on the Coldstream River and the rural properties surrounding the drill site.

"The Nannas are also concerned that Metgasco, despite its promises, has failed to keep the local community informed about its activities.

"We will be putting our concerns about Glenugie to local member Chris Gulaptis when we meet with him this week."
