• Let's Make it Happen: M&S Food for Stockbridge
    Here's why we believe this is not just beneficial but a perfect match: * Quality and Sustainability: Stockbridge is a community that values the high-quality and sustainable products that M&S offers. Your diverse product range would be welcomed with open arms and would align perfectly with our values. * Community Fit: With a rich demographic mix, Stockbridge is a perfect match for the broad customer base M&S caters to. The vacant unit on Raeburn Place is ideally sized and located to attract a constant stream of patrons. * Supporting Scottish Economy Ethically: M&S's commitment to supporting Scottish farmers and producers aligns with our desire to support local. Your presence would directly contribute to the economic growth of our region in a sustainable and ethical manner. * Promoting Ethical Sourcing: Your steadfast commitment to ethical sourcing would allow our community to feel confident in their food choices, knowing they align with our shared values of responsibility and sustainability. * Preserving Stockbridge's Unique Character: The vacant unit has a rich history, once housing a much-loved Scotmid supermarket and even a Woolworths in its past. M&S's presence would not only maintain the retail heritage of the space but would enhance and complement the unique charm of Stockbridge. The time is ripe for us to rekindle the initial excitement and demonstrate to you that Stockbridge eagerly awaits your return. This letter is accompanied by a petition signed by our community members, illustrating our collective support and desire for a brighter, sustainable, and prosperous future with M&S in Stockbridge. We sincerely hope you will consider our plea. Stockbridge is ready and eager for the return of the exciting prospect of an M&S Foodcourt. Thank you for your consideration, and we hope to welcome you soon to our vibrant community.

  • Label media with sexual abuse warnings
    I am a firm believer in freedom of speech, expression and accessibility for all. However, freedom from responsibility shouldn't exist. Therefore a content warning on media is the responsibility of both the creators and regulators of said content. The reason others should involve themselves in this topic is because according to the NCPCC (2021), 1 in 20 children have experienced some form of sexual abuse. It's estimated that 3.1 million adults, 18-74, were sexually abused as children, before the age of 16 (ONS, 2020). It's likely you might know someone who survived sexual abuse as a child. It's likely you don't even know that you know someone who has survived abuse. Not everyone who was abused can be captured in statistics. I say all of this to say anyone with a traumatic past, of whom there are many, could be harmed by content that isn't correctly and specifically labeled. We need labels so we're in an informed position to decide whether we want to consume any given piece of media. We need this information so we can decide if consuming the media will result in us having a panic attack, a flashback, or an intrusive return of memories.

  • Save our JEALOUS London rooftop sign
    Recently we received an unexpected letter from Hackney Council advising that we need to remove our beloved JEALOUS rooftop sign. We are devastated to receive this news. The rooftop sign has stood as a symbol of the company and has been a landmark in Shoreditch for almost a decade. Not only do we love our sign, businesses and passers-by have also shared their love for it and have expressed that they want it to be a key feature in the local area for years to come. In signing this petition you are showing support to preserve the sign. Your support means the world to us. Let's keep our beloved sign shining bright!

  • Save Mamounia Lounge: A Venue Worth Preserving
    Dear supporters, We stand at a critical juncture in the history of our vibrant community. Mamounia Lounge, an innovative and well-loved establishment, faces an uncertain future due to proposed changes to our lease. We cannot allow this iconic venue to vanish from our lives, robbing Mayfair of an irreplaceable gem. Let us come together and raise our voices in a united plea to save Mamounia Lounge. Since opening our doors in 2004, Mamounia Lounge Mayfair has captivated Londoners and tourists alike. We quickly established ourselves as a premier destination for food lovers, outdoor smoking and those seeking an unforgettable experience. Our innovative Lebanese and Moroccan menu has dazzled many palates, and we hope to continue to do so for years to come. However, the landlord’s request threatens to extinguish the magic of Mamounia Lounge. The proposed redevelopment of the Curzon Cinema building, which includes the revocation of Mamounia Lounge's trading license, jeopardises both establishments that have become beloved institutions within our community. This development smacks of profiteering, disregarding the years of dedicated service Mamounia Lounge has provided to our local community and beyond. We cannot allow this loss to happen. The Curzon Cinema has initiated their own petition, and we are prepared to follow their lead in defending our treasured venues. The recent grant of Asset of Community Value (ACV) status by Westminster City Council provides some protection, but uncertainties surrounding the lease persist. By signing this petition, you affirm that the potential loss of Mamounia Lounge and the Curzon Cinema would severely impact our community's amenities. Together, we can send a resounding message, ensuring they understand the local impact and the number of individuals affected by their decision. The time to act is now. Sign the petition, and let our voices be heard!

  • Save Trisha's
    The club and its licence is under review and there is a threat of closure from Westminster Council. We believe that this would be a great loss to our community and support is needed in order to prevent the club being forced to close its doors. We believe that with the support of its members and the wider community, Trisha's can continue to thrive and provide a valuable service to its members for many more years to come. Please sign this petition to show your support and to urge the powers that be to keep the club open.

  • Opposition to the development of Fleet Road Community Car Park
    We, the residents of Fleet Road Farnborough, and surrounding areas, vehemently oppose the proposed development of houses on the residents' car park between the Scout Hut and 13 Fleet Road, and we would like to bring your attention to several key objections: Environmental Impact: Constructing houses on this car park would harm the local environment, depriving residents of valuable open space that contributes to their well-being and quality of life. Legal Concerns: Changing the land use from a car park to housing raises significant legal issues, potentially breaching planning regulations and policies governing land use in Rushmoor. Land Ownership Dispute: There may be a dispute over the ownership of the land, as the council unilaterally assumed ownership without notifying or consulting the residents who believed they had legal rights to it. This situation requires a thorough investigation. Lack of Transparency: The council's actions in taking ownership without proper communication or engagement with affected residents undermine trust and violate our rights. Principles of transparency and due process must be upheld. Health and Safety Risks: Constructing houses without considering health and safety implications could lead to increased traffic congestion, limited emergency access, compromised pedestrian safety, and heightened pollution levels. Considering these objections, I urge Rushmoor Borough Council to reconsider the proposal and prioritize the preservation of open spaces, compliance with planning regulations, resolution of ownership disputes, and the safety and well-being of residents. We kindly request a thorough assessment of the potential impacts and legal ramifications, along with open dialogue with affected residents and exploration of alternative solutions that preserve the car park. This would demonstrate the council's commitment to the community's best interests. Thank you for your attention to these concerns. We trust that Rushmoor Borough Council will act responsibly in line with environmental sustainability, legal compliance, and the well-being of its constituents.

    The high street as we knew it is dying. Our small market town is suffering a number of established businesses closing with no one wanting to fill the empty premises. Businesses are struggling to survive. Putting extra financial burden on businesses to change signage that the public actually thinks improves the area could discourage other small businesses from opening.

  • Torphichen Community Centre - Risk of Closure
    We understand that West Lothian Council is currently undertaking a mapping exercise to understand how community centres are utilised by community groups. The likely outcome of this exercise will be the closure of Torphichen Community Centre at some point between 2025 and 2028. This would be travesty for our village where we rely on this community space and it is currently fully utilised. We need to try and stop this erosion of our community facilities by the Council and ensure that Torphichen Community Centre remains open for future generations. This is an essential facility for our village community. It is used by Torphichen Primary School for their assembly and sports activities. It is home to our After School Club, Jumping Beans, Torphichen Gala Day events, Beecraigs Archers, Zumba with Rachel and Pilates. Without this facility, there will be no-where else in the village for these activities to take place. This would be a blow for our community so please sign this petition to support the fight in attempting to keep our Community Centre open.

  • Save Willington Old School
    The Derby Diocese Board of Education want to increase our lease fees by 6 times, we cannot afford this. We are concerned that the site will be sold for housing development, the village needs a preschool more than a few more houses. Our preschool and after school club have nowhere else to go. Jobs would be lost and our children's education and school preparation adversely affected. A little bit of the village would die. As President of the Board you love Derbyshire, help us please. Willington needs you. If Willington Old School is lost, then so might the preschool and the after school club. They are both fully booked, they are needed. Where will people send their children instead? Nowhere! There is a national shortage of preschool places right now. Don't make that worse, let us stay open. Protect jobs and look after our children. Save our school

  • Repair the Roads in Retford (and Nottinghamshire)!
    The roads in and around Retford are absolutely atrocious. Over the past few months, the standard of the roads has deteriorated rapidly, causing extreme distress and disruption for the town's residents. Many potholes are on main junctions in the town centre and on the main roads, which receive a lot of traffic on a daily basis. In some areas, the roads are simply not fit for purpose. This problem is not just unique to Retford, but to the whole of Nottinghamshire - in recent years, Nottinghamshire has been named as the 'worst county in the country' for potholes/highway maintenance. Despite these warning signs, our Council has done very little/if anything to resolve this issue (some of the repairs that have been done have made the roads even worse!), and this petition is a way for our community to demand more should be done to rectify the problem. There have been many pledges by the council to rectify the issue, but with no results. The roads are now in need of urgent repair - in many cases, new sections of the road need to be re-surfaced. I strongly urge any residents from Retford to support this petition and make our voices heard. Simply reporting a pothole on the council website is not enough - they are not filling them in and the roads are deteriorating even more. This is not a political petition aimed at specific political parties - it is a petition for anyone who wants to see our concerns being taken seriously. We pay enough council tax (and road tax for those who drive) to ensure our local town and roads are well maintained. Where is this money being spent? Why is the town's basic infrastructure not being maintained? Enough is enough. It is time the council take accountability and sort the problem before any further damage is caused.
