• URGENT PLEA FOR SPEED CAMERAS ON HALLIWELL ROAD BOLTON
    Having speed cameras on Halliwell road is important particularly when we have the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We have school runs, lunch times as well as the commutes to and from work. As drivers on the road, we are responsible for driving safely. Unfortunately, a minority have made Halliwell Road a dangerous place to cross. Even though we have traffic lights and zebra crossings, it just isn't enough! We need to implement speed cameras to keep the community safe and to catch those who are driving dangerously.

  • LEAVE our Bridge ALONE
    Please help Residents, Local Business, Local Interest and Heritage bodies STOP Essex County Council rushing through this application to demolish and replace the bridge. This plan will cause significant temporary, permanent and ongoing harm from the HGVs enabled to use this inappropriate route and offers no benefit to, and will damage, Britain's Tourist sector, local social, culture* economy and environment** and will negate years of careful conservation and irreparably reduce the contribution of Finchingfield to the National, Regional and local heritage environment and unique character of this area. *the proposed works will prevent Finchingfeild residents using their village green for the Coronation celebrations in May. **otters have been filmed in the pond adjacent to the bridge.

  • Hythe Skate Park - New Ramps
    Hythe skate park isn't leaner friendly. This puts a lot of people off riding for the first time and them missing out on so much. The friendships you make. The reward you from learning new tricks while you ride. These 3 new simple ramps would be perfect for people starting out as well as experienced riders. I teach skateboarding and live I in Hythe. I travel to other skateparks like Deal, and F51 to teach because it’s difficult to learn at Hythe. The lips on each quarter pipe that are already there are in serious need of resurfacing. Also the ramps are big, that’s not a bad thing. We just want to add some smaller ramps to encourage new riders and support the local community that’s already there.

  • Parking charges at Leeds parks
    Leeds City Council is cash-strapped and, in an attempt to boost their coffers, they want to take away free parking at our popular and much-needed parks. The residents of Leeds are cash-strapped too and many people who are lonely use the parks as a social outlet to meet other people. Many families use the parks as their primary way of entertaining their children. These parks provide a large space for families and friends to meet up for celebrations and outdoor walks. Activities such as fun runs, exercise classes, boot camps, charity walks, bird watching, picnics, family games of football/cricket/rounders etc take place across all of these parks. Furthermore, at least four of these spaces are used for Park Runs which encourages people to exercise for free regardless of ability or age. Imposing parking charges will discourage participation in all of these activities and exclude many people from accessing these wonderful green spaces. Please sign this petition and share with your family and friends. Thank you.

  • Save Cricket in Colehill
    In December 2022 it was decided by the Colehill Sports and Social Club committee that adult cricket was to end indefinitely at Colehill Cricket Club. This was under pressure from a small number of neighbours who had recently moved into houses bordering the cricket ground. Cricket has been played there over 100 years before they moved in. Colehill Cricket Club has formed part of the community for many years. The ground was gifted to the Club under the covenant cricket was played at the ground. In recent years it has been home to Wimborne and Colehill teams. Clubs that strive to bring local young players through their teams and benefit the community of Colehill. Many new movers to Colehill during Covid-19 have got involved in the sides. A proposal was raised by the committee to erect a 48m long x 8m high fence but we feel this was over and above what was necessary and became untenable due to the huge cost of the project. We understand risk exists when cricket is played but believe a more pragmatic approach could be taken to resolve the dispute. We believe the decision to ban adult cricket is not a proportionate response to the risk involved. We do not believe the community interest and history of cricket in the village has been taken into account properly and hope this petition will demonstrate its value to the local community. We ask you to sign this petition to encourage the Colehill Sports and Social club committee to reverse the decision to ban adult cricket and take a more pragmatic approach to resolving the issue and ensuring cricket in the village can continue.

  • Condemn Jeremy Clarkson
    Clarkson maintains that “ everyone who is my age thinks the same”. This is patently not true and we should show him that. Let’s prove that most people are appalled at his statement, rather than agreeing with him. He certainly doesn’t speak for us.

  • SAVE CURZON MAYFAIR
    Curzon is keen to reach an agreement with the Landlord for a new long-term lease including a substantial increase in rent. This would then allow Curzon to invest in the venue for the benefit of the local community, which they have been unable to do so with the threat of eviction hanging over the venue. The Curzon brand was first established with the building of the cinema site on Curzon Street in 1934, and has a long and storied history there, hosting countless glitzy premieres and events for the local community. But with the lease up for renewal, and despite having security of tenure, Curzon are expecting the landlord to attempt to terminate its lease by either applying for redevelopment or becoming an owner operator – the sole two grounds on which to break the current lease. The recent decision by Westminster City Council, which I helped secure, to grant Asset of Community Value (ACV) status will provide the Curzon with extra protection should the freeholder decide to dispose of the property, but the future of the Curzon’s lease hangs in the balance owing to the potential shenanigans with the lease. The Council found that the Curzon cinema provides a distinct cultural use that furthers the social interests of Mayfair and concluded that Curzon is an important community asset for the area. So please back my campaign to keep the world famous and unique Curzon Mayfair entertaining generations to come at Curzon Street for many more years! Thank you. We have helped save this iconic cinema before, we can do it again! Councillor Patrick Lilley

  • Sign the petition: tell FIFA to clean up its act
    Right now the FIFA World Cup is taking place in Qatar. Before the tournament kicked off it was surrounded by controversy, but now the games are underway, controversy remains. Players have been banned from showing support for campaigns championing tolerance and diversity, and FIFA, despite campaigns from all over the world, have still refused to commit to a compensation scheme for migrants and migrant families who have been affected by the Qatar World Cup. Football Associations in the nations that make up the UK could have a huge influence on FIFA - if they chose to wield it. Far more than ordinary football fans do. FIFA needs radical change and electing Infantino to stand for another 4 years is not the way to do it. That’s why the Home Nations Football Associations along with Football Associations from around the world have to come together and demand urgent action and a complete overhaul of FIFA.
