• Remembrance Bench for Anne Preece
    Having lived in the village for 12 years I have many memories of Anne. She was, to me, the heart of Weobley. There were numerous occasions I would just pop in to see her for a cuppa and a chat and end up leaving with a few flower bulbs, a colouring book or a broom. Whether you are new to the village or have been here for many years, chances are you knew who Anne was and have fond memories of her. This petition is to help show the Parish Council that the people of Weobley believe that she should be honoured in the Rose Garden like others have been. Anne loved her roses and I can think of no better place for her to be remembered. Weobley is a picturesque village which attracts many visitors, whether staying for a small holiday or just passing through on their bikes. Whilst there are currently benches in the garden they do not allow for a comfortable rest nor do they permit for groups whether residents or visitors to sit together to enjoy the hustle and bustle that is our village life. The picnic bench that I would like to have made would be metal framed and similar to those that can be found in the park at the Hopelands. When starting the collection for Anne I never dreamed that I would come across as much resistance as I have from the Parish Council in remembering one of our beloved residents. I ask you, please come together as a community and sign the petition to help me show the Parish Council that this is what the residents of Weobley want.

  • Rebuild Earls Court
    The UK is short of exhibition space and also needs more live music venues. The original venue was torn down by CapCo for luxury housing - but it is now an empty, flat wasteland and local businesses and residents are suffering.

  • Reduction In Speed Limit on Main Rd Boreham to 30 mph
    This is important to safeguard the residents of the village. The majority of residents now need to cross the main rd to access the Co-op store which is the only store in the village now. Crossing the road near the store is fraught with dangers, particularly for elderly residents and children, as the speed of some vehicles is well in excess of the current 40mph limit. Additionally, the fact that vehicles are entering and exiting the car park, make the overall situation quite hazardous at busy periods.

  • Stop the Whopper in the West End of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
    The proposal to build a drive-through burger king has a number of key elements which should mean that the proposal is rejected out of hand in favour of consideration of how to manage the development of the site to promote the greater good and prosperity of the residents of the west end of Newcastle. Working with the developer to provide a commercially viable alternative which benefits the wider community in a positive way. Specifically : • Increased traffic and flow disruption on the already congested Westgate road. o Bentinck Rd. and Dunholme Rd. have not been considered in the traffic survey and are already subject to traffic calming measures and a fatality occurred last year on Bentinck Road. o Increase air pollution from idling traffic at the site exacerbating the already problematic air quality in Newcastle. • Long operating hours o 6 am-12 am hour opening means that the site will be busy throughout morning, noon and night o Delivery service and waste collection will inevitable be scheduled early in the morning and late in the evening • Increased Noise o The development proposes the removal of the west wing of the Police Station which will increase the exposure of noise to the residents of the existing traffic on the west road PLUS the additional contribution of the drive-through. This has not been considered in the noise assessment. • Increased litter o It is widely seen that Junk food retailers create large amounts of litter due to poor handling of wrappers off-premise. o Vermin are already a significant problem in the back allies – more food waste and discarded and dropped food will only add to this. Generally : • The exploitation of a deprived area o A number of studies have shown that the number of Junk food takeaways is correlated with deprivation in an area. o Obesity and deprivation are also shown to be strongly correlated o Type 2 diabetes is currently the largest burden on the NHS • Community Health Concerns o The key concerns of the Hot Food Takeaway Supplementary Planning policy have not been considered in the application ( https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/sites/default/files/2019-01/hot_food_takeaway_spd_-_october_2016_-_final_0.pdf)

  • Glastonbury: Introduce a Ballot
    The current system is skewed towards those who can afford faster broadband, own several devices and live in locations where internet speeds are higher. Thousands of people reported site crashes on SeeTickets.com whilst inputting their registration or payment information. Glastonbury Festival was created as a way of bringing people together to share the joy of music and enjoy an atmosphere of unity and love. But with the demand for tickets increasing every year, it has simply become yet another money-making enterprise that skews in favour of the privileged few - including celebrities (from A list down to Z-list) who always get free tickets, and corporate tickets. A ballot system would enable a fairer distribution of tickets based on luck rather than internet speeds.

  • What Next for Kendal Post Office - Stamps and Banks
    Earlier this year South Lakes Labour Party, the CWU and our local MP Tim Farron simultaneously launched SAVE KENDAL POST OFFICE campaigns after it was proposed by the Government that Kendal Crown Post Office would be closed and franchised into a totally inappropriate WHSmith premises. We successfully managed to convince the Government that Kendal Post Office should remain where it is. However this situation is not permanant as the current Conservative Government is likely to try to outscource our state owned assets at any cost. We are campaigning to stop this and in the event of any forthcoming Government change, in order to secure the future of Kendal and all Crown Post Offices , we believe that Post Offices should incorporate state sponsored NATIONAL & REGIONAL INVESTMENT BANKS (Labour) or BRITISH HOUSING & INFRASTUCTURE DEVELOPMENT BANKS (Lib Dem) as a way forward to help sustain Post Office viability and further enhance Britain's floundering High Streets and Town Centres. Having campaigned to Save Kendal Post Office from the clutches of WHSmith, it would be nice to think that Tim Farron MP can committ to Saving Kendal Post Office for good by giving his support for our radical but sensible suggestions.
