• A statue for Dame Vera Lynn
    We need to commemorate the Force’s Sweetheart with a statue. Dame Vera Lynn was a shining light during WW2 and kept many hearts beating with the ideal that we could come out of the other side stronger and better. She uplifted the spirits of millions through the traumatic war and should be remembered for the real hero she was.

  • Save the UK’s Arts and Cultural Industries
    The arts enable us to connect with ourselves, each other and the world. As well as providing entertainment and escapism, they play a vital role at the heart of communities across our country. The arts enrich the mental health and social lives of millions of people all over the UK. Every year, around 34 million people go to the theatre. The participatory and outreach work done by many arts organisations empowers people to develop creative skills, grow in confidence and collaborate. There are also major economic benefits to the arts continuing to thrive. Before coronavirus, the UK’s Creative Industries contributed almost £13 million to the UK economy every hour. For every £1 spent at the theatre, £3 was spent on food, drink, accommodation and travel in the local area (with significantly more being spent in the West End). But these are just some of the reasons why it’s so vital that we rescue the arts. You will have your own – and we’d love to hear them.

  • Statue of dame vera lynn
    Dame Vera Lynn has just died at the age of 103, and at this time it seems most appropriate to honour a lady whom even younger people would/do find inspirational in everything she achieved in her life. It is particullarly pertinent at this moment in time, not only because of her achievements in bringing pleasure to thousands of servicemen during WW2, but because she was such an uncontroversial personality that I cannot inagine anyone objecting.

  • Commission a sculpture of Dame Vera Lynn
    The publicly seen sculpture ‘population’ of this country needs a radical overhaul. We need many more sculptures of women who have made their mark and left a legacy of hope and kindness. In Dame Vera’s recent speech to remember the 75th anniversary of D-Day and with the COVID-19 pandemic in mind she said that the key to getting through any crisis is 'to come together to help one another and be kind'.

  • Remove BBC Statue by Paedophile Eric Gill
    I believe that the BBC would regain some credibility with their reputation, if they were seen to act upon the image of a naked child created by a known pedophile. It will show that they do not approve of the crimes committed by their past stars, Savile, King, Hall and Harris and show that they don't condone anybody who carries out child abuse.

  • BAME / BLM London statue nomination for Pauline Henriques OBE
    Pauline was the first black actress on British TV, the first black woman on the BBC world service radio and the first black female justice of the peace. She was also awarded an OBE in 1969 for her extensive work with the National Council for the Unmarried mother and her child, then later with the Brook Advisory Centres. Emigrating from Jamacia with her family in 1919 she lived in the UK until her death in 1998. She was my great grandmother and she was strong in all the right ways. She lived and died with dignity, intelligence and with an undeniable presence for anyone who met her. When I think of Granny Paul (who died when I was 13) I think of a woman who commanded respect, she knew who she was, she knew what she'd been through but didn't let that stop her breaking barriers. The lessons I carry from my Jamaican heritage are to act with intelligence, don't be afraid to change authority and the status quo, and to be a positive member of your community. I am incredibly proud to have a mixed heritage, it reminds me that I am a citizen of the world and that this is represented by the diversity here in Britain.

  • Change the name of 'Colston Hall' to 'Big Jeff Hall'
    Edward Colston does not deserve to be associated with Bristols Music and Arts scene. Thankfully the venue acknowledges that and has decided to change the name. "We want to look to the future and ensure the whole city is proud of its transformed Hall. The name Colston, and its associations with the slave trade, does not reflect our values as a progressive, forward-thinking and open arts organisation. We want everyone to feel like they can come to the Hall and enjoy amazing music.” I believe we should honour local legend 'Big Jeff' and name the venue after him, he's the heart of the local music scene and a true Bristol icon.

  • Create more all weather paths in Elmfield Park
    This is important to encourage cycling and walking in our local area, particularly as the park is used a lot for travel to and from local schools. In the winter, the park gets very muddy. If there was a path all the way around, this could also make the park more accessible for wheelchairs, mobility scooters and pushchairs.
