  • Save Hampstead Antique & Craft Emporium
    The Hampstead Antique & Craft Emporium is of significant cultural importance and is now recognised by Camden Council as an Asset of Community Value (ACV). The antique market is one of the oldest indoor markets in London and has drawn visitors from around the world to the heart of Hampstead for almost 60 years. The market is currently home for around 25 small businesses, and helps secure a livelihood for antique dealers, artists, vintage clothing sellers, jewellery specialists, repair and craftspeople. It provides a centre for the community to gather and an attractive destination for tourists. It encourages an appreciation of our past and retains old world charm in a village whose commercial streets are becoming the sole domain of estate agents and prohibitively expensive clothing chains. It provides affordable second hand items, repair services and showcases craftsmanship, quality and inspiring design built to last. This contrasts sharply with the unsustainable fast fashion and single use items generally available, all part of the throw away culture that is destroying our environment. Our market is based on reuse and repair, an ethos that should be encouraged and promoted for the good of the environment. Help us preserve the market at the Emporium and stand against its redevelopment as luxury homes and businesses. Stop some of our last small shops being squeezed out of the village. Please sign our petition. Donations are needed to Save Hampstead Emporium for the community: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/savehampsteademporium

  • Save Our Cycling Centre
    This will enable the return of a safe cycle space for all, and for the centre to be run for the community, by the community. The Glasgow Green cycling centre is not just a patch of ground with bikes on it. It is nothing without the workers, volunteers and service-users who made it what it was: A safe, inclusive community which provided a shared experience for all. We are campaigning to recreate that cycling centre - for cycling lessons, led rides, disability cycling, bike repair and volunteering. We want a safe space for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy cycling. Free Wheel North sacked its workforce with immediate effect on 21st September. They claimed that there was no funding left to pay wages and that the cycling centre was making a loss of £10,000 a month. But the financial figures they provided changed - literally - from one day to the next. Staff were sacked before they had a chance to challenge the final set of figures. Committed volunteers with years of experience were dumped. The centre is now being run by Free Wheel North Directors and inexperienced volunteers. This needs to change. Free Wheel North should be held to account for undemocratic governance. Prior to the redundancies, other organisations were interested in taking over the lease to keep the staff in their jobs, and to keep the volunteers in their posts. They are still interested in taking over the lease and running it properly, with due care to Health and Safety, PVG checks, welfare of staff, volunteers and service users, and providing a safe, inclusive environment. The Office of Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has an open inquiry into FWN due to the number of concerns raised throughout 2022.

  • The English Football League should not be sponsored by a gambling company
    The government must take immediate action on the relationship between gambling and football, following the revelation that the EFL sponsorship deal with Sky Bet has resulted in clubs taking a cut of their own fans’ gambling losses. The largest perpetrator of gambling harm is not football itself, it’s gambling companies who exploit the sport and fans for obscene profit. The Sky Bet sponsorship of the football league means that all 72 clubs are essentially forced to advertise gambling on their shirts, in their stadiums and on their websites – even if they don’t want to. This is unacceptable and this latest development is the final straw in a relationship that has clearly gone too far. Only last year, Sky Betting and Gaming was fined £1.2million by the Gambling Commission for sending 100 “free spins” to self-excluded gamblers, many of whom were recovering from gambling disorder. We urge you to legislate against gambling companies from sponsoring our national sport. There are now multiple EFL clubs such as Luton Town, Bolton Wanderers, Tranmere Rovers and Forest Green Rovers who deserve praise and recognition for thriving without gambling sponsorship – it's time for every club to do the same. With the vast amount of gambling profits coming from a small percentage of customers, we know much of this money will come from addiction, from destroyed families and from those who have taken their life due to gambling. There are millions of people either at risk or already addicted to gambling in the UK and many more being severely harmed by a gambler’s addiction. Worse still, Public Health England estimates there are 409 yearly gambling-related deaths in England alone, more than one every day. It is undeniable that football is so often the starting point that draws young people into years of harm for them and their loved ones. Football brings joy to fans and communities. But benefiting directly from the promotion of an addictive product is at odds with this commendable work.

  • Save the seating area at Gingeros
    The area outside Gingeros coffee is a very popular place with visitors and locals to be able to sit and chat while having a coffee watching the dolphins in the bay. The removal of the seats would have a detrimental effect on the tourism industry as tourists would find elsewhere to visit and locals would not have a communal area to sit and meet for a chat and coffee which could impact their mental health. We need the tourists and locals to get involved in order to save this much needed area in the village.

  • Battle for Trevalga - Save A Unique Cornish Hamlet and Keep People's Homes Safe
    Trevalga is a living piece of our shared history, a medieval parish largely unchanged. The sale risks that being lost, as well as many people being made homeless during a housing crisis and a community being torn apart. The Gerald Curgenven Will Trust may be small however it should operate to the same standards as all UK charities, and there are serious concerns about how this Will Trust, and the Manor of Trevalga, have been managed.

  • Double Yellow Lines At Westover Road/Northdown Hill, Broadstairs
    Please help us to have some traffic measures for this junction to ensure all can use the road safely. Drivers don't want to cause accidents but unless action is taken lives could be lost. Improvements are urgently needed. Those relying on the bus for transport often cannot cross the road and have to wait until another bus comes along. Anyone going to the Cabin Cafe, Revolution, KCC Social Services is at risk trying to access them at peak times.

  • Save BBC Oxford TV from closing in November
    Everyone living in the greater Oxfordshire area depends on local coverage of news and events. Without the excellent daily news coverage presented by BBC South Today Oxford there would be a massive black whole in regards to news and happenings throughout Oxfordshire. BBC South Today which is located in Southampton can not provide the local coverage which South Today Oxford provides and we have all grown to depend on.
