Forty years ago Peter Forbes founded a village in Devon for people with learning disabilities.

They were to have a home for life where they could enjoy a normal active life in a protected environment. The villagers were active in the local community, attended the local college, and enjoyed activities such as gardening, textiles woodwork, music and pottery.

Now the trustees have taken a business decision to close the village, break up the community and sell the site.

Some of the residents have lived at Blackerton for over 30 years, and such a move would be very traumatic.

Please support our petition to stop this closure;these vulnerable people should be allowed to stay in their homes.

We, the undersigned, call on the trustees of Cottage and Rural Enterprises Ltd, and the Charity Commissioners to stop the closure of CARE village.
