Thanks to everyone who has signed and promoted the petition to their friends, families and work colleagues. It is early days, but we are already approaching 200 signatures. I am sure that will pick up once the main publicity is out there and as more people talk about it. A lot of work is going on behind the scenes.
A couple of issues have arisen. I have been told that WSCC has had a number of people who registered to sign, but have not confirmed their signature with the link they are sent. This is usually because the email has ended up in their spam or junk email folder. They say this is a particular problem with those using Apple products that have higher security settings. If you have not had the email, please check your spam or junk folder.
They also tell me they have had a few signatures with a postcode outside West Sussex. I am very grateful for any support and my view is that, as they may visit or travel through West Sussex, they should be able to comment on cuts that will affect their safety. However, the current rules exclude non-West Sussex signatures from the total, so please use a West Sussex postcode whenever possible, e.g. work or college/university address.
