D-Day Events for 80th Anniversary

We recently commemorated the 80th anniversary of Exercise Tiger which was less than 6 weeks before the D-Day landings. The terrible consequences of that disaster helped the success of D-Day but not without the ultimate sacrifice of more service personnel.
It is a time to quietly reflect and for the community to come together to play our part in the Nations Tribute at the Beacon Lighting Ceremony at Manor Farm Beacon Site from 6pm on 6th June. There will be a Ram Roast and Live Music followed by the Beacon Lighting at 9:15pm.

Safety of Electric-Powered Micro-mobility and Lithium Batteries Act 2023

There is a campaign to improve the safety of lithium batteries (used in e-bike and e-scooters) and their disposal.
Lithium battery fires are on the increase – there have been over 1000 in the past few years, nearly 200 injuries and a dozen fatalities. Homes have been destroyed. The cost to the UK runs into £billions. The attached proposed Bill is intended to ensure greater safety in the use and disposal of lithium batteries with the aim to get it into law as soon as possible. It has its First Reading on 5th June.

Special Education Needs & Disabilities (SEND)

DEVON has secured a £95million government bailout to help tackle its ballooning special educational needs deficit.
The Government has accepted Devon County Council’s application to its Safety Valve scheme, which provides funding to areas where spending on special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) continually outstrips its budget. Devon is expected to have a £163million cumulative deficit in its SEND service within the next week, and this will now be substantially reduced by the funding.
