• Romanian Consular Surgeries in Leeds
    There is a request made by the Romanian Consulate for authorisation to organise a Itinerant Consulate in Leeds on 13th, 14th and 15th of November to support vulnerable families in our community with their expired passports and one way travel documents. Moreover, they are not able to apply for the settlement scheme, especially children, due to a lack of valid documents as the birth certificates will not be accepted by the British authorities. In line with the UK Government guidance on New National Restrictions this event will still be able to take place and the Consulate General of Romania in Edinburgh are keen to provide you with all the information you may need on this matter.

  • Windsor theatre Nedlands
    It has been stated that the owners are free to demolish this 1937 building, as it does not meet the criteria to be listed on the State Register of Heritage Places - However the people of Perth feel this is a building of history, beautiful architecture and are fed up of Perth beautiful history being demolished. This does not just effect the people of Nedlands but all of Perth's people and its history.the Art Deco and Modernist Society has been working very hard for many years to save our heritage - the Windsor Theatre is a major example of the Art Deco style of theatre we are blessed with and one of very few examples of this wonderful era we should be preserving not condemning to developers.

  • A Statue for Sir Sean Connery
    Sean Connery rose from a humble background in Edinburgh's Fountainbridge to become one of the most iconic and much-loved actors of all time. He was a great ambassador for the city and for Scotland as a whole, and a man who proved that Scots can achieve great things.

  • Help the homeless, not the tourism!!!
    We already know people working 30 hours plus etc are struggling on furlough, we know people are dying of covid, depression, loneliness and isolation. We know that this is probably going to be one of the hardest times of our lives. So what about the homeless? We're here thinking oh poor us because we can't work. What about the people who wouldn't stand a chance if they caught covid? It's unfair and its CRUEL. I'm disgusted that Blackpool council are spending thousands of pounds on pointless ornaments and statues when we have more pressing things at hand. It seems completely irresponsible and a huge kick in the teeth to Blackpool residents who actually care.

  • Change the marketing name of “Kaffir Lime Leaves” to it’s Thai name “Makrut Lime Leaves”
    The word “Kaffir” has roots in the Arabic language but has come to be a racial slur, usually directed at Black African people, around the world. It’s etymology with regards to the fruit and tree is not clear, however it is believed to have racial connotations. Lime leaves are increasingly becoming a cupboard and freezer staple in the UK thanks to the growth in popularity of Thai food on the British isles. The name “Makrut” is commonly used in Thailand and the name is free of any racial or negative connotations. “Makrut” is a more suitable term for our retailers to market this produce under. Britain has a proud history of multiculturalism and anti-racism. Whilst the term “Kaffir” may not be in common usage here, it’s meaning can still be felt by many who reside in the UK. Food is a cultural cornerstone and every dish we eat reflects thousands of years of human history, as well as trillions of years of natural history. It always reflect the movement and integration of peoples, and we can nurture and promote that by giving lime leaves the name they deserve. We can prevent the unnecessary use of an offensive racial epithet by people who simply want to enjoy good food.

  • Upgrade Playpark in Seafield Estate, Buckpool
    The kids are playing football and running on the roads on scooters and skateboards which is not the safest thing to do, and even moreso as the winter comes and lighting levels decrease.

  • Emergency arts and culture funding
    In a global pandemic, funding has been cut for the arts. There are mass job losses and less protection for freelance artists. At a time when mental health problems are arising, therapeutic activity is needed. Hence why Mind charity advocate a ‘Crafternoon’. Arts and culture are an integral part of the UK’s economy and we must respect and install lasting, strategic funding to support the longevity of the creative talent in this country.

  • Allow Dogs Off Lead in John Coles Park
    John Coles Park is a lovely, central & safe environment for all users which include a large community of dog walkers who exercise their dogs on and off lead in the appropriate designated areas. This split has worked well for many years and it is disappointing that Chippenham Town Council have decided to make this decision without a full public consultation and by their own admission in their report for the Amenities, Culture & Leisure Committee meeting dated 9 September stated that the split of users who would prefer dogs on or off leads is 50/50. Although this is not an outright dog ban it does by its enforcement mean that many dog walkers will not be able to use the park to ensure their dog gets their full exercise. It will also cause issues for for those who are less able or without cars to get to places where they can let their dogs run. The majority of the regular dog walkers using the park do so twice a day most days of the years, either earlier or later in the day. Therefore, they don’t interact with the main bulk of public who use the park for socialising etc and feel unfairly treated in this matter. Also, as we are approaching winter would be the main and, in some cases, the only users of the park. Instead of this complete change in usage the signage in the park between the two areas could be much improved to educate, not only the dog walkers but also the non-dog owners as to which area is safely designated for them and the status quo can remain. Or as a compromise certain times of the day, ie a couple of hours early and a couple of hours late on could be designated as dog off lead time and the rest of the time in between dog on leads. There are lots of options that could be considered that would work for all parties without alienating one very large group of regular and loyal users. Suggestions for using other areas – Donkey Field – needs better maintenance and is a less suitable environment esp mornings for dogs of lead with the children going to school. Birds Marsh, so much more difficult to get to now that the new massive estate has been built across most of the access. Monkton Park – a little further away and more difficult to access for some. The main points are that: This decision seems to have been reached very quietly and without discussion with actual regular users of the park. Walking dogs on lead only is not suitable for a large proportion of the dogs currently walked in the park. Dogs on lead can actually become more stressed and more likely to act aggressively. There are no other similar local environments that are as safe to let dogs off lead. Please sign this petition if you would like this decision reversed or at least reconsidered fully and with the input of all park users. Please also petition your local councillor and Chippenham Town Council if you feel strongly about this and have other points to add. Many thanks

  • 20s Plenty for Hertfordshire
    Our campaign has uncovered many of our supporters living in communities blighted by speeding and excessive traffic noise and pollution. They have real fears for the safety of their loved ones, leading to poor mental health and impacting on their quality of life. Many of us live in towns and villages that are not equipped for the huge increases of speeding and heavy polluting traffic, Hertfordshire County Council advocate walking and cycling to schools and walks for wellbeing how is this possible when Hertfordshire roads are so dangerous? Why adopt 20mph? 20mph default speed limits reduce serious road injuries and death rates. >70% of residents want 20mph default limits this grows when mandatory. 20 million people in the UK already live in areas with 20mph default speed limits, where local authorities have rejected 30mph as a default limit. 20mph default speed limits marry safety and sustainability (Stockholm Declaration, 2020) therefore improving health and wellbeing from a cleaner environment and more active lifestyles. Medical experts are calling for 20mph default speed limits as they ‘lower the baseline‘ for NHS demand by reducing the NHS load.
