Sustainable Crediton Newsletter Issue 112

Welcome to our newsletter.

We hope to see you at our Seed Share event at the Boniface Centre on 29th February: further details under Dates for your Diary. If you would like to get involved, or start your own project or campaign under the auspices of Sustainable Crediton, come and talk to us at the Seed Share about what you would like to do.

CAG (Community Action Groups) Devon is holding a Skill Share event at the Boniface Centre on 21st March. We are lucky to have this on our doorstep. Take this chance to meet other like minded people. Further details below.

Check our other diary dates too. Also newly listed this time round is 'Life on the Verge', an interesting presentation on 9 March at the library.

If you fancy getting your hands dirty and want to plant some trees, take a look at the North Tawton event on 28/29 March.

Nationally, there is potentially worrying news contained in three new government bills relating to the environment, agriculture and fisheries. These will replace and apparently water down environmental protection standards currently set out in EU directives. For the first time in years, we have a government which has an almost unfettered power to act as it sees fit on these as well as other matters. So it is really important that we make our views known to our MP, the local media and in whatever other ways are available to us. Silence means acquiescence, sadly.

Happy campaigning,

John Craythorne, Newsletter Editor, Sustainable Crediton.
