Cheltenham 2020: What have we discovered?

Let’s take a second to talk about the future. Will we finally have left the EU? Will plastic straws be banned? Or will we still maintain the same habits we’ve been trying to break for years…

We’ve been analysing the future of Cheltenham; from the bleak and miserable to the bright and optimistic. What can Cheltonians expect from the future?

The past few years have seen a shift in the way the people of Cheltenham are living. Christmas is creeping forwards every year and more and more Gloucestershire women are choosing to have children. But are these good things for the town? Lifestyle editor Joe Kennett thinks so:

“What’s really good about lifestyle in Cheltenham is that there are so many people who want to change their lifestyle so that we are going to be living more sustainably in the future and have happier, healthier lives.”

The landscape of UK politics is changing and Cheltenham is no exception. With the looming shadow of Brexit hanging over us all as well as the imminence of a general election, what does Politics editor Phoebe Sargesson-Jones have to say on the subject?

“It’s going to be difficult… It’s going to change a lot. But it’s quite an exciting time as well. The Conservatives won’t be as safe as they have been in the past and I think the Liberal Democrats might take back their seat.”

Identity and Culture
People from across the world flock to Cheltenham in their thousands to experience its rich festival culture and our Identity editor Megu Jones thinks that this is set to increase in the future:

“I think there will me more festivals and more inclusivity in them. Alex Chalk’s plans to build more houses in the Lower High Street with encourage more young people to move to Chetlenham.”

Cheltenham Borough Council’s plan for Cheltenham’s future is to make us a zero-emissions town by 2030. Our environment editor, Adam Budd, and his team have been looking into the likelihood of this and whether the council are committed enough to make it happen.

“The people of Cheltenham are incredibly passionate people when it comes to the environment and Cheltenham Borough Council are doing a lot to try and help. Despite Brexit, they’re still trying to prioritise saving the planet.”

The prospect of a General Election will effect all aspects of Cheltenham’s future. We’ll be following the election all the way from the dissolving of parliament right through to results day.

The general consensus from our editors is that the future of Cheltenham is a positive one. There will be more housing, more festivals and a more sustainable way of life. But will our next venture, the Crisis Project, reveal issues in Cheltenham that we’ve not yet discovered?

  4. It’s my belief that mesothelioma is actually the most lethal cancer. It has unusual characteristics. The more I actually look at it the harder I am assured it does not respond like a real solid flesh cancer. In the event mesothelioma is actually a rogue virus-like infection, therefore there is the possibility of developing a vaccine as well as offering vaccination for asbestos exposed people who are at high risk with developing potential asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for expressing your ideas about this important health issue.

  6. I manage a vape store directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that additionally markets CBD product lines. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop website directory. We do not sell CBD goods such as CBD oil. We only provide promotion and marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health and wellness Store and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a somewhat considerable range of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is employing twos sets of rules to different firms. Due to this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has constricted my payment possibilities and currently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have spoken with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is entirely against the law and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent standard to all companies. I am still to speak to one more legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.

  8. Thanks for your submission. I also believe laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular nowadays, and now are sometimes the only type of computer included in a household. This is due to the fact that at the same time actually becoming more and more affordable, their working power keeps growing to the point where there’re as highly effective as personal computers through just a few years ago.
