The Liberal Democrats welcome Cllr Siobhan Knight to their growing team on Tiverton Town Council
Siobhan is a young and highly motivated Councillor for Lowman Ward, Tiverton, with a passion and experience of delivering for young people.
Siobhan explains, "From speaking with young people in Tiverton, many feel they have been forgotten. They hear people complaining that they cause issues for the town, but feel that is unfair and if we engaged with them then people would see they love the town as much as anyone. We need to be doing things together as a community."
At a SHDC Executive meeting held last week the administration voted to continue the suspension of the brown bin collection until Spring 2022.
John Birch, a Totnes district councillor, says
" Many residents are more than disappointed with this continued suspension. In my view this is not only disappointing but also unacceptable. FCC, the council's waste collection contractor, has a contractual obligation to collect garden waste and yet is unable to do so. As FCC is unable to fulfil its obligation then, in my opinion, SHDC should seek to make alternative arrangements and deduct any additional costs from FCC's account.
This is a victory for the Liberal Democrats and all those campaigners who stood up for our civil liberties against these deeply illiberal and unworkable plans. The Conservatives have needlessly sown confusion among businesses for months by threatening to introduce Covid passports, and will not be forgiven for it. After this inevitable U-turn, the Conservatives must now see sense and scrap the unnecessary and draconian Coronavirus Act as well.
Dominic Raab is one of the worst Foreign Secretaries in British history and has presided over the worst foreign policy disaster since the Suez Crisis. He decided to spend more time on the beach instead of picking up the phone to help vulnerable Afghans. His continued dithering and delays has put lives at risk. Therefore it's only right that his pay be docked for failing to do his job properly. By repurposing his Ministerial salary, we can fund 10 Afghan refugees to resettle and build a new life here in the UK. This is a much better use of taxpayers' money.
