  • Commission a sculpture of Dame Vera Lynn
    The publicly seen sculpture ‘population’ of this country needs a radical overhaul. We need many more sculptures of women who have made their mark and left a legacy of hope and kindness. In Dame Vera’s recent speech to remember the 75th anniversary of D-Day and with the COVID-19 pandemic in mind she said that the key to getting through any crisis is 'to come together to help one another and be kind'.

  • Remove BBC Statue by Paedophile Eric Gill
    I believe that the BBC would regain some credibility with their reputation, if they were seen to act upon the image of a naked child created by a known pedophile. It will show that they do not approve of the crimes committed by their past stars, Savile, King, Hall and Harris and show that they don't condone anybody who carries out child abuse.

  • BAME / BLM London statue nomination for Pauline Henriques OBE
    Pauline was the first black actress on British TV, the first black woman on the BBC world service radio and the first black female justice of the peace. She was also awarded an OBE in 1969 for her extensive work with the National Council for the Unmarried mother and her child, then later with the Brook Advisory Centres. Emigrating from Jamacia with her family in 1919 she lived in the UK until her death in 1998. She was my great grandmother and she was strong in all the right ways. She lived and died with dignity, intelligence and with an undeniable presence for anyone who met her. When I think of Granny Paul (who died when I was 13) I think of a woman who commanded respect, she knew who she was, she knew what she'd been through but didn't let that stop her breaking barriers. The lessons I carry from my Jamaican heritage are to act with intelligence, don't be afraid to change authority and the status quo, and to be a positive member of your community. I am incredibly proud to have a mixed heritage, it reminds me that I am a citizen of the world and that this is represented by the diversity here in Britain.

  • New plaque for the removal of Edward Colston's statue
    This historic moment must be remembered as a part of the Black Lives Matter campaign. It wasn't a violent act of vandalism, or a removal of history, but a peaceful protest against a racist icon. Colston's plaque previously read "one of the most virtuous MPs to have ever lived". This statement is an affront to history. The purpose of a plaque at the spot where Colston was thrown into the water would be to remember Bristol's history of slavery and those responsible for it, as well as the historic moment that the people of Bristol rejected this racist icon

  • Change the name of 'Colston Hall' to 'Big Jeff Hall'
    Edward Colston does not deserve to be associated with Bristols Music and Arts scene. Thankfully the venue acknowledges that and has decided to change the name. "We want to look to the future and ensure the whole city is proud of its transformed Hall. The name Colston, and its associations with the slave trade, does not reflect our values as a progressive, forward-thinking and open arts organisation. We want everyone to feel like they can come to the Hall and enjoy amazing music.” I believe we should honour local legend 'Big Jeff' and name the venue after him, he's the heart of the local music scene and a true Bristol icon.

  • Create more all weather paths in Elmfield Park
    This is important to encourage cycling and walking in our local area, particularly as the park is used a lot for travel to and from local schools. In the winter, the park gets very muddy. If there was a path all the way around, this could also make the park more accessible for wheelchairs, mobility scooters and pushchairs.

  • Black British history
    It should be important for black history to be taught within the education system because it is paramount for many people who are of black heritage aswell as people of colour to know their history and where they are coming from, because many black individuals are lost. History is taught in the curriculum but not every history is taught in the curriculum, black history should be taught so black children do not get lost in the unrealities of society. Albeit, though we do have black history month it is not enough as everything is not covered within that said month to the same extent that European history is taught. It is important that this is done so that equality is seen within the education system regarding the histories of others who have actually contributed to this system, learning about this is just as vital as learning about any other topic within the education system. This is important that every person of colour and not of colour should be taught black history the same way we are taught European history to show equality in the education system, because teaching us European history has allowed us learn about them but non-blacks haven’t learnt about us. Every other nations history is taught in the curriculum but when it comes to black history we are at an disadvantage. Many third generations children of my grands do not know their history , the parents are to busy trying to make a living and not educating their children on their ethnicity, we as a race of black parents must teach our young men and women to stand up and be proud of their race, instead of shying away from the facts. I strongly believe because of the lack of black history thought in schools from the early 1950’s to 1960’s has damaged the way how 1st 2nd & 3rd generations blacks in the uk think and If these individuals were taught from day 1 by their parents and curriculums were put in place in schools they would be more understanding of their identity and cultural background.
