  • Stop the imminent closure of Brighton Health Club
    Several thousand members and around 100 staff have been left in shock when being informed that on the 21st November the club will close. The University is behaving with complete disregard to the impact their action is having on the club community and the staff who work there. Despite professing to value the community and championing mental health causes, the University’s behaviour is unethical and reprehensible. We ask the university to reconsider its decision and by keeping the facility open and thus make a contribution to the well-being of several thousand people. Mahatma Gandhi said, ‘Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.’ Dear Professor Humphris we would love you to be happy!

  • Save Winchcombe's Youth Centre
    In Winchcombe, Gloucestershire County Council owns a building that for years has been a youth centre. We have seen young people thrive as a result of their time in that space with our youth workers and those from organisations who used the space before us. It's proximity to the Sports Hall, central location, disabled access and parking make it the most suitable site in Winchcombe for continued Youth Services. As landlord, GCC has asked all current users of the building to move out whilst they assess it for repair and decide on its future. We want GCC to involve the community, especially young people, in their review of this building's future so that any refurbishment/re-design/re-let is appropriate for local need. Winchcombe needs a dedicated youth centre building, for too long young people have been squeezed out of physical spaces in our community and they deserve better. We are seeing now the impact of catastrophic cuts to open access youth services a decade ago, as waiting lists for counselling and mental health support spiral out of control, compounded by the recent pandemic. Community Youth Services from a dedicated building can help to support young people at a much earlier stage, reducing the pressure on over-stretched specialist services. Consulting with young people in the community over the future of their youth centre building should be a priority for GCC, however in our communications to date we have been given no indication that this will be the case. Local authorities have a statutory duty to secure, so far as is reasonably practicable, sufficient provision of educational and recreational leisure-time activities for young people and to make sure young people have a say in the local offer. (Education Act 1996 Section 507B) We need local support to add volume to our voice to GCC so that they will be willing to come and listen to the voices of young people. We are asking young people to write letters that we will send to GCC and we want to show adult support for that through this petition. Our goal is that through this petition and young people's letters GCC will actively seek out to listen to and act in response to the voices of young people in our community.

  • Keep open Llefrith Nant Dairy Vending in Cemaes Anglesey
    Anglesey council are planning to close our new milk vending machine. This not only supplies our community with top quality local produce but also provides employment and innovation to the way we support our local businesses. The loss of this service will not only damage a small family business but also be a loss to the community.

  • Use the Levelling-Up Fund to reopen the Old Tram Bridge
    The Old Tram Bridge is an important pedestrian and cycle route into Preston. It is well used, providing a link to the footpath network based around the old railways and the Lancaster Canal tramroad. Many people have fond memories of the bridge, which has evolved from its original purpose as part of the canal, to being the much-loved structure that it is today. Given that walking and cycling to work are far greener than using a car or even public transport, it would be foolhardy to remove this vital link in the network of pathways to the south of Preston.

  • Give Kenilworth Lido a Fair Chance
    Outdoor swimming in Kenilworth is part of the town’s history.  Abbey Fields Lido was  one of the 1st in the country. The current outdoor pool is the furthest from the sea and the only safe public outdoor swimming facility within 30 miles. The pool’s heritage is highly valued, but change is in its history. The original pool has already been rebuilt twice and we now have the perfect opportunity to create a lido for today; with the latest chemical free filtering, and the best 21st century design and eco credentials.

  • Scotland's Rural and Island Young People's Call for Action
    Growing up in Rural and Island Scotland is a unique experience, with a diverse range of opportunity and challenges. This distinct experience needs to be recognised, and rural and island young people’s voices need to be heard on decisions that impact them. Rural and Island Young People have the support of a range of youth organisations but now we are looking for tangible commitment from elective representatives and decision makers to ensure meaningful participation.

  • Make Monday a bank holiday due to England reaching the Euro 2020 Final
    On Sunday night, England's men's football team could be crowned champions of Europe at Wembley Stadium. England have only ever reached one major final before which was the 1966 World Cup Final. That was 55 years ago. It's been a long wait and who knows how long we might have to wait before it happens again. Let's allow the country to celebrate such a momentous sporting event in style. Sunday night should be a time to bring the country together even if we are physically apart, and after the year we have had, we deserve this. So what better way to mark the occasion than having a bank holiday the day after the night of the match.

  • Fairmuir Park Under Threat
    Today we learned that Alexanders Community Development have withdrawn their interest and proposal for the former Bowling Green. They advised that they had consulted and listened to the local community , most of whom had said that while they supported their idea, it was not the correct location for it. This does not mean that our campaigning is over as Dundee United Community Trust still have plans to take over the pavilion and areas of our park by way of an Asset Transfer offered to them by Dundee City Council. Whilst DUCT have now modified their initial proposal confirming that it was no longer their intention to fence off a pitch, create car parking and add floodlighting, their interest still remains in the pavilion and one pitch. We feel that this is simply a "get one foot in the door" approach and that it would ultimately lead to them acquiring more of the park under the same scheme. If you would like Fairmuir to remain the green space it is today, please sign the petition and we will do all we can to preserve our park.

  • Brookwood Cemetery opening times
    This petition is to bring attention to the opening hours of Brookwood Cemetery and the need for the visitors to have extended opening hours. Most cemeteries are open at different hours based on season, winter 8am til 5pm and summer 8am til 7.30pm. Brookwood Cemetery however have a standard opening and closing time all throughout the year of 8am til 5pm. There is a demand from the visitors of the graveyard and this interest deserves to be taken into consideration and accommodation to be made. We are hoping this petition will encourage the council to accept the proposal of the following: Brookwood Cemetery Opening Hours: Winter: Monday to Sunday - 8am til 5pm Summer: Monday to Sunday - 8am til 7.30pm Access via the train station has been effected by the new ANPR camera and 20 minute free parking is not enough to spend graveside. I hope we can all stand together, irrespective of race and religion. If you have any questions please feel free to message me. Thanks
