Devizes Labour Party members honour long- standing party member, Colin Hopgood
A cross Party group of demonstrators protested to Wiltshire Council about their decision to close Braeside and Oxenwood Outdoor Education Centres.
You will find below, the link to the webcast of today’s full council meeting at County Hall in Trowbridge. The petition was presented and there followed a council debate on the points raised, resulting in a motion that was voted in unanimously (88 for, none against, one abstention).
Wiltshire Council have listened to their constituents. They have committed to carry out an open and transparent review of the bids from interested organisations - of which there are several - to take over the running of Braeside and Oxenwood.
A well supported meeting discussed Wiltshire Council's surprise decision to close Braeside and Oxenwood Education with speakers from Labour, Lib Dems the Green Party and Lucy Gomes a parent who started a petition against the closures. Lucy will be presenting the petition which now has nearly 16,000 signatures, to Councillors at County Hall, Trowbridge on 22nd May.
