New campaigning web site

The Labour Party has launched a web site allowing organisations and individuals to set up campaigns they want to bring to the attention of Labour politicians. Former charities minister and current secretary of state for energy and climate change, Ed Miliband, who is compiling the next Labour election manifesto, will be checking in to the site regularly.

Morris Dancing petition

A new petition has appeared on the Prime Minister's website asking for 'Morris Dancing' to become part of the Governments  hange4life project in England.  The petition description reads:

‘We would like the Governments Health Department to make Morris dancing part
if its Change4life project in England. This will be a fun way to assist the change4life’s aims of helping people from becoming over weight. This may also help give a much needed boost to this exciting part of English culture. A healthy people and culture will bring on a more content society’

You can sign the petition:


Statement on the future of website

The Directory of Social Change (DSC) runs, a website that provides government funding information for the voluntary sector. Following the conclusion of its funding relationship with the Office of the Third Sector (OTS), DSC plans to greatly expand the content and functionality of so that it continues to provide the best possible service for the voluntary sector.


Had this in - pretty un-populated in Folk/Roots/World at the moment; and cannot tell if 
the Band for the Day site would be something our music performers might be interested in or not. 
so passed on, without comment ....
