Support Ukraine – Martin Griffiths

Welcome to your May Issue.
We focus still on the Ukraine Crisis with Julian Greenbank’s excellent video describing all the efforts we West England folk are doing to help Ukrainians. Barbara Morrison tells of a Tetbury teacher who just had to help Ukrainian refugees. With the Local Elections coming up on May 5, Claire Jones celebrates the support of ‘Electoral Cooperation’ by Starmer and Davey. With fines now issued for Partygate, Claire Jones’ letter to her MP asks him to stop defending the indefensible. Our collaboration with Westbury People’s Gallery in Oxford has produced a hilarious video on ‘Bojo the Clown’. Our Events section has loads of local events for you around Europe Day, May 9.
