January and February 2024 news

We’re well into 2024 now, and we’ve already had some great events. Our January talk was a fascinating introduction to the Plymouth Sound National Marine Park. Nick Helm, National Marine Park Assistant Ranger, first told us about the spectacular wildlife to be found in the waters of the Sound, and then detailed the aims of the Park. There’s a big focus on getting people to make use of the wonderful environment we have on our doorstep. We were pleased to hear not long after the talk that the Marine Park had won their bid for money from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

In February, PC Andrew Rowe, who works in the Diverse Communities Team of Devon and Cornwall Police, spoke to us about hate crime and online radicalization, and the work that his team are doing to combat these problems. These are very significant issues, as recent events have shown, so it was encouraging to hear how seriously our local Police Force is taking the issue and the many ways they try to combat hate crime and support its victims.

The Darwin Day meal in February was another great success. One of our most popular events, 20 of us enjoyed a tasty vegetarian meal in Veggie Perrins. Some of us also enjoyed seeing a couple of anime films at Plymouth Arts Cinema and the University in January
