This will be the 8th year we have held our wonderful Christmas Fair in MAgdalen Road, Exeter.

The road will be closed and filled with stalls selling crafts, gifts, food, drink and fun activities.

There will be live music.

The wonderful shops of the Magdalen Road village will spill out onto the street and add to the occasion.

If you've never been before you are in for a treat, if you have been before and you are coming back then you'll know what fun it is.

If you need a poster to print out and pin up just click here and download it.

SEE YOU THERE!!

BULL MEADOW PARK UPDATE

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to write to Exeter City Council, and/or signed the online and paper petitions to object to the ‘Disposal of Land’ in Bull Meadow Park, to be used as a turning point to the proposed housing development.

The response was incredibly encouraging, especially as time was so limited.

In total, there were over 300 signatures on the e-petition and over 400 signatures on the paper petitions!

Plus, 211 letters and emails were sent to the City Surveyor - which is a massive response as far as these campaigns go! A HUGE thank you!!!

This really is a hugely promising start in the campaign to save our park.

But let’s keep going…

The spin taken by the Exeter Homes Trust:

Exeter Homes Trust is implying that the size of land they need is so small that it’s ‘only 10m x 10m’.

• This is not true – it’s 130 sq metres. The average 3-bed detached house with a garage and garden could fit in this space.

This is a lot of land in relation to a small park!

Exeter Homes Trust is stating that the social benefits will outweigh the loss of parkland

• Yet any loss of green space will harm the park and it could set a precedent for further development in future.

• There will be no direct social benefit to the local community as we will be losing our green space and a sporting area for the children.

• There is a need for housing the over 55’s in the city but this shouldn’t be at the detriment of those at the other end of the age spectrum; the children.

• The children should not lose their sporting and play area to accommodate a road.

Councillor Natalie Vizard is supporting our campaign and will be attending a Committee meeting with the council in early November, where the matter will be discussed. We will keep you updated…

PLEASE KEEP THIS GOING…
