Friends of the Earth launches legal action to stop capture of our beavers

Thursday, 23 October 2014 0 Comments by Claire

Friends of Earth challenges licences to remove beavers believed to be the first to live in the wild in England for centuries, reports tomorrow’s Guardian.

Fantastic news and huge thanks to all the work of Friends of the Earth and in particular, Alasdair Cameron!!!

Following my previous emails to Mr Swire asking him to request that DEFRA abandons the capture programme, he has remained silent .... will he now fight for us?

High speed broadband arrives in Ottery, but local villages will wait a few more weeks

Thursday, 23 October 2014 0 Comments by Claire

Superfast Broadband is now available in Ottery St Mary, as part of the Connecting for Devon work, which includes Devon County Council.

However, surrounding villages in the parish, including West Hill, Tipton St John and Alfington, will have to wait a bit longer, hopefully no more than a few weeks, following some delays.  BT will need to dig up the roads to install fibre cables to the villages, which will involve road closures.

I am hoping that fibre will be installed early next year now and while I am disappointed by the delay, it is good news that we are still on schedule to receive broadband fairly early in the process.

The only way to save Ottery Hospital will be the energy created by mass people power

I firmly believe that the only way to save Ottery St Mary Hospital will be the voices of thousands of voices, all protesting at the loss of the hospital as we know it.
