If you want to know more about how care is being provided following the loss of all beds at 19 community hospitals in Devon, watch this short film, put together by a local campaign group.

I have also taken part in it…..  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ3ddkEW_C8

I urge Devon County Council cabinet to back my motion on animal sentience, despite Gove u-turn

I am unable to be present at Wednesday’s Devon County Council cabinet meeting where my motion on animal sentience will be debated - see - https://www.claire-wright.org/index.php/post/motion_urging_devon_county_council_to_call_for_animal_sentience_commitment

But I have submitted the following statement to portfolioholders and leader of the council urging them to back my motion, despite Environment Secretary, Michael Gove’s climbdown on including animal sentience in domestic law. 

When the news broke of the government omitting a commitment on animal sentience, which would have resulted in a move away from state responsibility for animal welfare, there was a huge outcry across the country. I very much hope Devon County Council’s cabinet will support my motion to extract a firm commitment from the government on the timing for including this matter in domestic law. 

Please see the email sent to officers below, for the full detail:

Public meeting TOMORROW EVENING at Otterton to discuss traffic and planning issues

By |2018-01-08T13:19:00+00:00January 8th, 2018|News|

EDDC councillor, Geoff Jung and I are holding a public meeting tomorrow evening at Otterton Village Hall, to discuss planning issues and how the current difficult traffic situation might be mitigated.

It follows an earlier controversial public meeting at Ladram Bay Holiday Park in November, attended by around 70 people - see https://www.claire-wright.org/index.php/post/director_of_ladram_bay_attempts_to_silence_me_at_public_meeting 

Following that meeting I have been asked by several members of the public for a follow up meeting to debate possible solutions particularly in relation to the traffic issues.

Tomorrow’s meeting starts at 7pm and is at Otterton Village Hall.  All residents of Otterton are welcome to attend.
