The Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, has written to me today (28 February) to confirm that Royal Marines Base Chivenor will not, after all, be closing. I understand a statement will be made in the House of Commons later this morning.
North Devon MP Peter Heaton-Jones today (5 February) handed the Defence Secretary nearly five thousand letters calling for RMB Chivenor to be saved after what he described as ‘an amazing response from local residents’.
"Shares of a £1 million package are being awarded to dozens of charities working to keep inland waterways and beaches around the country safe, helping with the cost of new equipment to help volunteer search teams save lives more quickly and easily.
