• Reopen or beloved Greyhound
    The closure of the Greyhound Pub in Newport, UK has left a void in our community. This place was more than just a pub; it was a gathering spot, a place where memories were made and friendships were forged. Despite its reputation as being 'rough', many of us loved it for its authenticity and charm. The Greyhound meant so much to so many people. It was an integral part of our local culture and history. Its closure has not only deprived us of a beloved hangout spot but also impacted local businesses that relied on the footfall generated by the pub's patrons. According to data from CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale), pubs contribute significantly to local economies, with each pub generating an average of £80,000 per year in community benefits (CAMRA, 2018). By reopening the Greyhound Pub, we can restore these benefits to our community. To make more memories in a special place. Please sign this petition if you too want Jack to reopen the Greyhound Pub!

  • Call for an independent investigation into the recent VAR controversy in the Premier League
    The integrity of football rests on the cornerstone of fair play and unbiased decision-making. Recently, however, that integrity has been put into question due to a glaring VAR error in a pivotal Premier League match between Liverpool and their opponents. This isn't just a mistake; it's a stain on the reputation of football, casting doubts over whether competitions are truly fair or marred by incompetence, or worse, corruption. Imagine your favourite team is battling it out for the league title, only for a blatant refereeing mistake to cost you crucial points. It's a scenario none of us want to entertain, but one that is increasingly plausible if we don't demand transparency and accountability now. This petition isn't just for Liverpool fans; it's for every fan of football who believes in the sport's capacity to inspire, unite, and thrill us in equal measure. If we don't act now, who's to say your team won't be next?

  • Create A Proper Children's Minister In Government Task Forces To Safeguard Generations
    The children of today will be tomorrow’s adults, it will be they who take up the mantel of responsibility, who manage tomorrow’s affairs, who run hospitals, schools, businesses infrastructure and local and central government. It is vital that, within the current political climate, there is a minister whose sole brief is how political, and cultural health influences directly impact their lives. A generation affected by so much missed schooling, open to so many different changes in social media, which are often spreading misinformation and conspiracies alongside some quite disturbing attitudes towards treating others and their views, is a generation clearly in need of increased oversight and safeguarding by someone who can raise these issues quickly at the highest level of government. If we want to improve the chances of the future generations who will take the reins in a few decades we don't want to fail our children as recent reporting as evidenced, we all want to see our government protect our children, so it's time to put children first or risk losing our support.

  • Protect Torquay Pavilion + Emergency Repairs Now!
    Torquay Pavilion is a much-loved asset that has been cherished for generations since it opened in 1912. People power prevented its planned demolition by the Council in the 1970s. The Community has fought again for its future since the Pavilion's long-term leaseholder, MDL Marinas, closed it as a shopping centre in 2013. Working hard to take successful legal action against the Council in 2018, the Community defeated a damaging, barely viable and unlawfully-permitted scheme incorporating the building. People power is needed once more to ensure that the building survives.

  • Save Cafe Joseph!
    Cafe Joseph has become the heart of the local community. For parents of children at the school next door, Cafe Joseph is a place to meet and support each other. For the adults with disabilities living in the home around the corner, Cafe Joseph is one of the few places where they can go out and feel welcome and accepted. For people who are struggling with challenges in their life including mental health struggles, unemployment and bereavement, Cafe Joseph is somewhere they can find love and support. For the church members who come in after mass, Cafe Joseph a chance to socialise and meet new people. We have shared our stories and craft projects, and enjoyed discussions about our faith. Cafe Joseph offered a warm space and a hot meal for people struggling with the cost of living crisis through the winter. The staff have provided training and work experience for young people, enabling them to pursue careers in hospitality industry. The Kidzone mornings have provided fun and games for children during the holidays, allowing them to play safely with their friends and enjoy a warm meal. At Cafe Joseph, we have shared the good times and the bad, and wonderful coffee and cakes. The customers and staff have become our family, and it is a vital part of the community and our lives. Cafe Joseph really is “No Ordinary Church Cafe”!

  • Let's Celebrate with a Bank Holiday if the Lionesses win the World Cup!
    By getting to the World Cup Final, Sarina Wiegman's team have achieved more than any England national football team has in over 57 years. Going one step further would be a generational achievement, and deserve national recognition. Special bank holidays have been instigated for occasions like royal weddings, jubilees, and the turn of the millennium. Winning the World Cup arguably surpasses these in terms of national importance. Taking a bank holiday would give the nation time to come together to acknowledge a fantastic team, celebrate inspirational role models, and give an economic boost to the country (especially if Nike takes this opportunity to produce Mary Earps' keeper kit). We need to show Rishi Sunak and the rest of the UK Government that the Lionesses deserve such a celebration to mark something truly monumental. The team set excellent examples for young girls and boys, and encourage everyone to get out there kicking balls around. Having an extra bank holiday would give you, your family and friends the opportunity to play together. You might even discover one of you is the next Millie Bright, Alessia Russo, or Lauren James!

  • Remove the word 'entertain' from the BBC's mission to 'inform, educate and entertain'.
    The BBC is an excellent, impartial public service. However, I firmly believe its purpose should be to simply inform and educate. When we, the public, are forced to pay for it, is there really any need for 'entertaining' programmes that the private sector would quickly step in to fill the void? For example not everyone wants to pay for Eastenders. I'm thinking particularly of sports, soaps, etc. These will always get coverage without us being forced to pay for them. For example, people still watched the Premiership when it was free to view on ITV. I also think this would reduce the burden on the BBC's finances.

  • Save Albright Mosaic Mural at Langley Baths, Oldbury from demolition
    It is a link to industrial heritage of the region of Oldbury, its growth and the development of the housing, green spaces and community supported by Albright & Wilson (now Solvay and still trading in Oldbury). Albright and Wilson were the largest employer in the area in its heyday, and they link back to the mid-1850s. They were quakers and invested in their workers in the local area for 100’s of years. The mosaic serves as a tribute to our Industrial and Educational heritage and for the ex-pupils of Albright High school who made it for their D T studies with their teacher Mr Frost. There are generations of swimmers who used Langley baths too, that want it to remain in the public eye for future generations of the area.

  • Spotlighting Healthy food
    Subject: Join Our Campaign for a Healthier Southwark: Let's Make a Difference Together! Dear Southwark residents, I hope this message finds you well. We wanted to reach out to you and share something close to our heart lately –a spotlighting healthy food campaign for a healthier Southwark. I truly believe that if we come together as a community, we can make a significant positive change that will benefit all of us, and we would love for you to be a part of it. Over the past few years, we have seen some concerning trends that we believe we can address together. Did you know that from 2019 to 2023, our area has been facing challenges related to obesity, diet-related illnesses, and rising healthcare costs? The availability of healthy food options has been limited, making it difficult for people to make nutritious choices. We've heard stories from local families struggling to find affordable, high-quality food that nourishes their bodies. Imagine a Southwark where our high streets are filled with vibrant markets and stores offering fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein options – easily accessible for everyone. Imagine children being surrounded by advertisements that encourage healthy eating and positive food choices, rather than promoting foods that contribute to health problems. We believe that by coming together, we can make this vision a reality. The Southwark Council has a crucial role to play, and our voices can make a significant impact. By signing our petition, we're sending a powerful message that we care about the health and well-being of our neighbours, friends, and families. Think about the stories we could create – stories of families enjoying nutritious meals together, children growing up with a strong foundation of healthy eating habits, and a community that thrives on wellness. Our combined efforts can inspire local businesses to offer more nutritious options and encourage our council to take action towards creating a healthier environment for all. Your support means the world to us, and we truly believe that with your voice added to ours, we can make this campaign a success. Let's be the change we want to see in our community and work towards a healthier, happier Southwark together. If you have any questions or want to learn more, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are excited about the possibilities, and we hope you'll join us in this meaningful journey for change. Warm regards, Spotlighting Healthy Food Team Funded by: Bite-back, UK youth, Proudtobeme, Community fund

  • Do not allow Liz Truss to appear on I’m a Celebrity
    Disgraced former Prime Minister Liz Truss could be heading down under to appear on I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here. It’s reported that she is being offered hundreds of thousands of pounds to appear on the hit ITV show later this year. Despite being Prime Minister for just 44 days, Liz Truss caused huge damage to our economy. With ordinary people up and down the country still hurt by her actions, she simply does not deserve to be rewarded with dingo dollars, hefty appearance fees or the exposure of a primetime TV slot.

  • Help save artists' studios across Scotland
    Wasps is by far the biggest studio provider in Scotland, managing twenty buildings across the country – in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee, Inverness, Perth, Irvine, Kirkcudbright, Newburgh, Selkirk, Nairn, Skye, Shetland and Orkney. These are home to 1,000 artists – a large percentage of those working in Scotland. It is vital that the Wasps charity is run in a way that serves and supports these artists, otherwise there will be devastating consequences for Scotland’s cultural landscape and our society more broadly.
