Have You Signed the Petition Yet?

A petition in support of preventing the closure of Combs School, Village Hall and Chapel has been open for the last week or so, and the signatures are coming in thick and fast.

At the last count, more than 1000 people had expressed their support, and that's not just in Combs, but in the wider community around the village, where the value of what's here is well understood.

Have you signed the petition yet? Look out for the petition forms in The Beehive, other local pubs, shops, supermarkets and workplaces. If you need more forms, e-mail the Campaign Team.

If you have taken a petition form away to gather signatures, please return completed sheets to Combs Infant School, Lesser Lane, Combs, High Peak, SK23 9UZ.

If you are outside the area, and unable to sign the petition on paper, you can still show your support.

Go to the online petition on the No. 10 Downing Street web site. Please note that signing the petition is a two-step process. First you put your name and address in. You'll be sent an e-mail to the addressyou give. You need to click on the link in that e-mail to confirm your 'signature' on the petition.

If you want to get other people to sign the petition, use the e-mail link below to send them a copy of this post.

You can also express your support by leaving a comment below.

I have signed your petition and fully support your campaign to keep the school open. Rural communities desperately need their schools. In my own community on Exmoor we periodically have to fight for our small village schools (several have already closed) so I understand this issue all too well. I wish you every success and look forward to hearing GOOD NEWS!!!

These village schools need to stay open, it is for the future of our generation of children. I will go and sign the petition.

Having recently discovered your beautiful village I must say how lovely it is to find an attractive place that hasn't just turned into a tourist /commuter trap. The school can only help keep your village a viable but beautiful place for all to enjoy. Good luck.
