The Eden Project has announced greatly reduced price tickets for a selection of its 2012 entertainment Sessions.
Many people, often Cornish locals, buy tickets early and have paid full price. Some, who attend many Sessions have paid extra for "Insider Track" ..designed to be of benefit to the buyer and to purchase tickets early.
The Eden Project has confirmed IT WILL NOT BE REFUNDING any monies to those who have booked tickets before the reductions were announced.
This is unfair and outrageous.
The majority of local Cornish session-goers (who bought tickets early as they had no transport to arrange) are hit hardest.
Ticket prices should be FAIR TO ALL and the most ardent and keen session-goers should be rewarded, not penalised for booking early.
Please support our petition to prevent Fife Council from closing Eden Park Children's Respite Center, Cupar.
The centre provides much needed respite to special needs children and their families in Fife.
Fife Council announced the closure of the centre in their budget (Feb 2012) without consultation with families or staff at the centre. The families and staff found out about the closure via the Fife Herald.
We believe this action by the council is a disgrace and an insult to the staff and families that use the facility.
The children use Eden Park regularly. It's staff and the service are an invaluable asset to the families. The centre affords not only the children respite but parents & carers respite at home too. The children interact with other children in a safe and friendly environment that would not otherwise be afforded.
Thank you for your time.
Please sign this petition. The most vulnerable people in our society are at risk of losing their "voice" - our older adults like grandpas and nanas, people who may no longer be able to think or communicate as clearly as they used to - do you know anybody who has a diagnosis of Alzheimer's, who has had a stroke or a brain injury? - people of all ages who were born with a learning difficulty or have a physical disability.
With all the radical cuts to services for vulnerable adults and children, it is now more important than ever that they have access to good advocacy to help them speak up for themselves.
The new service outline is a financial cut of over 50% to current advocacy provision within county.
At a time when Cumbria County Council is undertaking an unprecedented upheaval of its social care system, services such as advocacy are more important than ever in ensuring that the rights of some of the most vulnerable people using Council services are protected, and that in the middle of changes to social care provision and social care providers, that people do not fall through gaps.
We would expect that County Council continues its remit to protecting the most vulnerable users of its services.
Please help by signing this petition. Thank you.
The cut of 70% to Eden Arts funding by Eden District Council – from £49k in April 2010 to £13.5k in 2014 will all but cease the local authority’s support for arts and culture in England’s biggest and most rural district – Eden in Cumbria - rural people love culture too!
Eden Arts turns the core funding funding it receives from EDC into a five fold (+) benefit . EA’s budget forecast for 2012-13 is that against the originally intended £43k from EDC Eden Arts will undertake £220k of spending on projects. We are only able to do this because we receive core funding paying for a small staff who fund-raise and create projects and promotions for the benefit of local residents and tourists alike.
We bring big stars like Bill Bailey, Billy Bragg, Globe Theatre, Northern Sinfonia to Eden on a regular basis. We create community projects like a new rural touring cinema for villages. We create locally embedded projects like FLOCK (www.jointheflock.co.uk) that allow people to participate in a fun and creative scheme that celebrates our local sheep farming. We support writers through creating www.newwritingcumbria.org.uk.
We support Cumbrian artists through our www.c-art.org.uk. We contribute to the vibrancy of the local area and its economy by running installation projects and a pop-up cinema in empty shops.
There is no publicly funded theatre, arts centre or gallery in Eden and no local authority arts officer. Eden Arts is all that the district has by way of arts development organisations– a cross arts organisation with a 20 year history of work for and in Eden. We work with other organisations such as Highlights Rural Touring to ensure that the arts are promoted and enjoyed in Eden. Eden Arts does way more than can be listed here, it punches way above its weight in order to give to the people of Eden.
The arts are a major employer, and they generate far more revenue than they cost to fund. In addition they are a major attraction for tourism in the UK. While cutting arts funding may save money in the short term, in the long run it risks undermining what has been one of the country’s most vibrant areas of growth over the past fifteen years, and destroying one of the national achievements that we should be most proud of.
Letter To the editor Milton Ulladulla Times, August 5th 2009
Why Woolworths? Is it sustainable or just going to be an empty building that looks good!
We have seen many letters about the proposed Woolworths development with most complaints about how it will look. What about the main thing- what will it bring to our town?
1. Will it attract people from other towns to Ulladulla? Bunnings used to bring people from Nowra and further north till they got a store. With the development of anew larger Bunnings store in Batemans Bay on the drawing board we stand to lose transient shoppers from as far as Eden who help our local economy out of tourist season.
2. Why do we need another food retailer? We have five food stores in our town already, Coles, Aldi, Franklins and the two IGAs. Why allow another one who will do more harm than good to the smaller stores. It will also affect our independent butchers and liquor outlets. (Do we actually need another liquor store).
3. We have a growing population of adults and children and only one small major clothing outlet. We would benefit greatly from another player in this market. As a town it would be more beneficial to have a Big W from the Woolworths group as this would employ a large number of people,bring a larger diversity of products and clothing for the population and also attract shoppers from Nowra in the north and Eden and make Ulladulla a hub for weekend shoppers from otherlocal communities.
This will in turn bring the shoppers we actually need to make most of the variety stores viable in the Woolworths complex and in the other surrounding districts of Ulladulla and Milton. Why isn't our council looking into the sustainability of this development and not just its aesthetic appeal?
This petition is in the hope that the BBC and Tiger Aspect Productions will release the romantic comedy television drama 'Rescue Me' starring Sally Phillips to DVD, shown on BBC 1 in 2002. This programme may appeal to fans of 'Love Soup', another romantic comedy drama made by the BBC which is on DVD, because of the same genre and for people who did not see the original transmission will finally have an opportunity to see it.
Though the programme may not of received the ratings it aimed for, the programme might still be of interest for people who are fans of the actors/actresses, such as Sally Phillips ('Smack The Pony' & 'Clare in the Community'), Oliver Chris ('Green Wing'), Stewart Wright ('Doc Martin') and James Lance ('I'm Alan Partridge' & 'The Book Group').
So if you are a fan of romantic comedies or of the comedians/comediennes taking part, please do sign up. Thank you.
