• "Thank You" Parish Priests
    Our parish priests work with great love under extremely difficult constraints. Recent statements from the Church leadership have been extremely demoralising, and so we, the public, simply wish to affirm how valued they are.

  • Stop the Capita contracts in Northern Ireland
    The public services ombudsman has found CAPITA's work on the Personal Independence Payment in Northern Ireland to amount to 'systemic maladministration'. Capita continually failed to obtain medical evidence from GPs as required, and used systems which had the potential to inhibit the appropriate use of further evidence in making assessments Despite this, the Minister for Justice Naomi Long is awarding a contract to Capita to deliver a Medical Assessment Service to victims of the conflict in Northern Ireland. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-57583138

  • Stop Releasing Contaminated Rainwater into the Tamar
    We are in the middle of a climate and ecological crisis which means companies must be polluting less, not polluting more. It endangers not only Plymouth but the surrounding areas [such as Saltash and Torpoint]. It is insidious and the effects could be long-lasting not only on the current generation but on future generations. In November 2008, 280 litres of radioactive liquid poured into the River Tamar after a hose burst. In 2005, refit work was temporarily suspended on HMS Victorious after two radioactive leaks in one week. All in all, at least ten serious nuclear leaks have been reported at Devonport in the last thirty years with 570 litres of radioactive liquid lost overall. Now the MOD wants to add more irradiated rainwater into the River Tamar. We must put a stop to it. Now!

  • Save the Wild, Wooded & Biodiverse Areas of the Quarry Site Development in North Stamford!
    As local residents who love the outdoors and respect the importance of our rural landscape, we want our local authorities to commit to meaningful and substantial protection of existing wilderness and biodiversity. Once it's gone it won't come back! We certainly do not want tokenistic, uninspiring tamed landscapes commonly found in crammed into housing developments; insultingly labelled as ‘green spaces’ and 'country parks'. As a local resident, my family visits the quarry multiple times a week, as do my local friends. This wild, natural site is a beautiful, unspoiled place for wooded walks, mountain biking, picnics, birdwatching, sunsets, and general outdoors greenery, nature and wellbeing, away from populated areas. It clearly has high biodiversity. We frequently see a variety of butterflies, bees, dragonflies, frogs, and protected wildlife such as bats, newts and a wide range of wild birds. Further development would harm these precious, vital natural systems. We must protect them properly and give them space to thrive. My family, friends, and I are devastated at the prospect of this special place being so unfairly reduced. My daughter is the most confident little track/mountain biker at age 5, because of this perfect oasis on our doorstep. The rough, wild tracks and landscape have allowed her to become a warrior and nature-lover alike. She helps pick litter and cares very much. I seriously doubt she and her friends would have any such deep, meaningful respect for sterile, artificial environments. We have recently adopted a child too, and a huge part of what we could offer as a family when chosen, were the natural surroundings on our doorstep; opportunities to experience wild adventure daily. For us North Stamford residents, the quarry is very accessible, and it is a totally different place to parks and sites like Burghley, which are also wonderful in their own ways! The quarry site offers a wild and untamed landscape which is fantastic for instilling resilience, adventure, and respect for nature in our children. Such a wild landscape plays an important part in our responsibility to repair biodiversity. ‘Development’ and 'growth' should NOT mean paving over precious wild spaces and cramming in housing. It SHOULD mean preserving natural environments and the wholesome enrichment they offer. I am aware local authorities plan for functional, safe and pleasant surroundings. However, my petition goes beyond this. It aims for you to commit to meaningful and substantial protection of existing wilderness; certainly not tokenistic, uninspiring tamed landscapes commonly found in housing developments; insultingly labelled as ‘green spaces’ and 'country parks'. As a practicing Child and Educational Psychologist, I strongly advocate for our children's mental health and resilience flourishing with true nature and physical adventure. Mountain biking, walking, scrambling, bush craft, nature conservation, birdwatching and countryside appreciation are all wonderful things our community can do in these woods and meadows. Such a wild landscape plays an important part in our responsibility to repair biodiversity. ‘Development’ and 'growth' should NOT mean paving over precious wild spaces and cramming in housing. It SHOULD mean preserving natural environments and the wholesome enrichment they offer. We should embrace and protect our rural heart. Join me in taking a stand and having a voice, to protect and embrace our rural heart, landscape and biodiversity!

  • Make Monday a bank holiday due to England reaching the Euro 2020 Final
    On Sunday night, England's men's football team could be crowned champions of Europe at Wembley Stadium. England have only ever reached one major final before which was the 1966 World Cup Final. That was 55 years ago. It's been a long wait and who knows how long we might have to wait before it happens again. Let's allow the country to celebrate such a momentous sporting event in style. Sunday night should be a time to bring the country together even if we are physically apart, and after the year we have had, we deserve this. So what better way to mark the occasion than having a bank holiday the day after the night of the match.
