Big Yellow Bus Project

10th March 2020

On the 28th February, the Cotswold MP, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP, visited the Big Yellow Bus Project in Cirencester and was impressed by the work they are doing to provide a warm and comfortable place for the homeless to sleep.

“I was very pleased to visit the Cirencester Big Yellow Bus Project and see the terrific job they are doing to provide emergency temporary accommodation for people who find themselves in dire circumstances.  My visit also made me wonder whether the official figures for rough sleeping in the area were correct.  My task now is to get the Council to provide them with a mains electricity supply for heating, lighting and warming up hot drinks.”

Ten Climate Actions To Celebrate

The Cotswolds

1. The UK passed the world’s first Climate Change Act over a decade ago with cross-party support. This gave us both a framework to set statutory carbon budgets and set up the independent Committee on Climate Change.

Meeting between Chief Constable and Gloucestershire MPs

It has been 1,317 days since the result of the Brexit Referendum, I am sure I am not the only one who feels it has been longer, but tonight at 11 pm the Withdrawal Agreement comes into force and we will be leaving the EU immediately.
