I handed in the petition today asking Devon County Council to maintain funding for the St. Michael’s Day Centre in Honiton and to resist pressure to cut services for the elderly and vulnerable people in our town. Pictured above with Leader of the council Cllr John Hart, who thanked me for the petition and told me that it will go forward as part of the consultation process.
Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and helped collect names, we managed to get a total of 1,362 signatures. The next stage is a County Council meeting next Wednesday 14th May – which you can watch live on web cam or afterwards if you cannot make it. I was told today that no decisions are being made at this stage, just discussions on the consultation process. I did explain today that I am aware of several families who feel completely in the dark and would like to know more about what is happening. I was told that we would receive a formal response to the petition detailing what is happening.
