Petition Against Extended Car Park Charges

Most will be aware that Dorset Council has a series of proposals to raise extra money from local car parks. This includes charging between 6pm and 8pm from Monday to Saturday and daytime on Sundays. The daily rate for some car parks, including those in Bridport and Lyme Regis, is proposed to double.

There are many who are concerned that these new charges will increase parking in nearby residential streets where parking is currently free.  There is an online petition calling on Dorset Council to withdraw their plans to extend these car parking charges.

The petition has been launched by the Liberal Democrat Party.  However, you are able to sign the petition and state whether or not you want to be updated by email about their campaigns.

Petition to Help Sheep Farmers Make a Decent Income From Their Fleeces

The 1000 wool fleeces in the photograph are about to be incorporated into the manure heap.
What a waste of a once valuable resource. A sustainable product that could be used to insulate homes for all government grant supported buildings.
Sheep farmers receive less for their wool than the cost of shearing the sheep. Last year David Jones, who is pictured with his wool above, received 28p a fleece and paid the shearer £1. This year the value it set to drop by at least half. Hence he and many other farmer’s across the country, decision to plough their wool into the fields as fertiliser.

Wool is sustainable, fire-retardant, bio-degradable, and the most efficient form of insulation.
