I hope there will be support groups organised throughout East Devon, and I'm sure our members and supporters will be participating.

Eleanor is District Councillor for Broadclyst.

Nationally our MPs are doing what they can to support and ensure the prime concern of government is to keep citizens safe. That means constructive scrutiny of decisions and support for necessary actions. The best decisions are ones that have been looked at from all angles, communicated clearly, and implemented well in a timely fashion.

    County Hall announced on Monday that there really was cash, after all, for meals during the holiday for those children receiving free school meals.

    If ever there was a time for us to act in support of Hong Kongers, it is now.

    Many Hong Kongers have suffered grave persecution at the hands of the Chinese Regime.

    With repeated reports of police brutality, the UK has a moral and legal duty to stand with Hong Kongers and ensure no one is left behind to suffer under the Chinese Communist Party.

    Despite the massive effort people have made to fight coronavirus it's clear that the road to recovery is going to be rockier than we first feared.

    With millions of workers worried about their livelihoods, the British people deserve a Government that listens to their concerns and does everything in its power to protect them. Sadly, this isn't the case.
