Mid Bedfordshire’s Independent Candidate, Alan Victor, was in Marston Moretaine on Friday (29 November 2019).
It was part of his tour of the constituency, asking people what they want from their parliamentary representative. He said:
“At least 90% of people I talk to say they are not happy with politicians. Many say it in much stronger words!
“I feel the same and that is why I decided to stand in the general election. I would like to send a message to the politicians but I can only do it with your help.”
Alan told the Chronicle that many of the people he has spoken to are unhappy because they see politicians as an obstacle to getting out of the EU, which they voted for in the 2016 referendum.
“Many others are unhappy because they feel their voice isn’t being heard and the politicians are leading us down a path against their interests.”Read More
On Sunday 1st December Lisa Raphael and Linsay Black will be running 17 miles to mark the time Linsay’s mum spent receiving care at Keech Hospice.
Part of the run will be on the Bedford Santa 5K Run (3.1 miles) along with hundreds of other runners, all dressed as Santa. The fun run was organised by Keech Hospice Care to help to raise vital funds.
After completing this race Lisa and Linsay will run a further 14 miles back to Woburn, still dressed as Father Christmas. Linsay said:
“This will make 17 miles in total and will be in recognition of the 17 days Linsay’s mum spent being looked after by the wonderful staff at Keech before she sadly passed away in September last year.”
Lisa and Linsay’s aim is to raise as much well-needed funds as possible, Linsay commented that it takes £7000 per day to keep Keech Hospice open.Read More

One of the complaints was the number of faulty lights (The Chronicle found that 14 of the 24 lights were out). Residents told the meeting that they had reported this to the council, but had little response.Read More
