Moving Exeter into the future

Authored by Martyn Goss
Posted: Thu, 10/27/2016 - 8:41pm

Britain has no transport policy and nowhere more is this obvious than in Exeter. Our country has stop-start history of short-sightedness which has left us in the present mess, and which will need brave political decisions to address. Recent traffic congestion in and around the city is a symptom of this malaise, so where is the leadership needed to take us in a different direction?!

Beacon Life 2  - a snapshot of life in Beacon Heath's community centre

Boxes of baby clothes are piled high on the right hand side of my desk at The Beacon Community Centre and on my left there are two boxes of bread.

My desk, with its squeaky chair, sits in the middle of this chaos and I love it; this is a community centre in action!

Beacon Life: Three miles for two bags of food

Welcome to the new Beacon LIfe blog where we share stories of what happens at our community centre in Beacon Heath.

Three miles for two bags of food

She walked into The Beacon Community Centre, anxiously looked at the groups of chatting people, turned on her heels and ran out the door clearly distressed.

I ran after her and asked if she was OK. “I’ve just walked from Exwick for the food bank, is it here?” she asked.

BLOG: English Nationalism for the Common Good?

Authored by Martyn Goss

Probably most contemporary English nationalist movements are associated with support for right-of-centre economic and social policies. There is an assumption, perhaps not surprisingly after the EU membership Referendum, that English nationalism is racist, inward-looking and ethno-phobic. Nationalism is right- wing, ugly and nasty.

Is God for In or Out??

“The purpose of God is Togetherness”.

For those of us within the Judaeo-Christian tradition, there is a deep well of understanding that as human beings we are called to develop bonds and relationships of care and trust.  The emphasis on our behaviour is to love one another – including those we would fear or dislike – and to live in harmony and unity across the brokenness and divisions of the world.

Support Local Business

Being as it’s Local Business week I’m focussing this article on the many benefits of buying local, and why everyone should, seek out and support their weekly farmers markets. Buy from the local corner shop. Eat, drink and meet friends at local independent cafés; and find your gift purchases from the small, local designers or artisans. The recipients of the latter will be far more thrilled with the individuality of the gift, rather than something which is mass manufactured.

Have we become too focussed on living indoors?

Although we may not be aware of it, in the last few generations in the West we have increasingly become ‘indoor people’.  Whereas once almost everyone was a farmer or a gardener and spent most of their time outside, we have overwhelmingly moved to a more comfortable culture of life indoors.

Exeter: City of welcome, city of diversity

I was born in Exeter in 1955.  In the next bed to my mother was a Sikh woman who had also given birth to a son.  Her family had come to Exeter in 1947, mine probably in the 1500’s.  Both of us male babies were native Exonians.

Go Kevin!

We’ve raised £890 on Just Giving! No, wait, add gift aid of £100 and that makes it £990 and still counting!

That’s a recent conversation at our house. Our good friend Ruth Regan died last year and her husband Kevin is taking part in Hospiscare’s sponsored Men’s Walk to thank Hospiscare for its “outstanding” support given to them both.

The donations and comments on Kevin’s JustGiving page are a wonderful testament to Ruth, Kevin and Hospiscare.

Tony Hogg discusses police funding in latest blog

Yesterday (Tuesday 19 January) I spent a couple of hours meeting members of the public in Honiton at one of my regular Meet Your PCC events.

This is our first such event since the Christmas period and the second since my team was successful in highlighting issues with the Government’s flawed review into the police funding formula.
