• Bring back the Judith Kerr postbox to Barnes as a permanent memorial to the much loved writer
    One of the ways Judith Kerr was celebrated during her lifetime was with the decoration of a postbox near her home in Barnes. To mark World Book Day in March 2019, the Royal Mail decorated four postboxes across the UK honouring the most popular British children's authors. The transformation of the box only lasted one month but we're campaigning to have the postbox permanently decorated. Judith Kerr was one of the UK's most beloved children's authors. Her books from The Tiger Who Came to Tea, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit and Mog the cat stories have been read by generations of children across the world. After escaping from Nazi Germany as a child in the 1930s she decided life was not for wasting and she was working as an illustrator and author right up until the time she died aged 95. She is a hugely important figure and deserves a permanent monument. She was thrilled when the Royal Mail decorated a postbox in her honour and it would be a fitting memorial if they were to allow the postbox to be permanently decorated with her illustrations.

  • Stop Bristol CC injunction against Nicky (sits outside Gloucester Rd Sainsbury's)
    Nicky is part of the Gloucester Road Sainsbury's' furniture. She sits outside peacefully trying to make her way in life. Nicky tells me that the council plan to enforce an injunction meaning that she cannot sit outside Sainsbury's anymore. Bristol City Council should spend the money that would be spent on an injunction, on housing services to help people like Nicky rather than isolate them. I feel this is wrong and if you feel this way too I urge you to sign this petition in support of Nicky.

  • Allow iconic song to be played during wedding processional
    As a life long Neighbours fan I feel it only fitting that Scott and Carlene's wedding processional 'Suddenly' by Angry Anderson be played. Neighbours isn't even a guilty pleasure for me (clearly!) I have only missed one episode of Neighbours in my life, and that was because my boyfriend accidentally recorded over it in the early 2000's. Please sign this petition. My husband to be is completely confident that I won't get any signitures, let alone 10,000. Please prove him wrong. Neighbours fans, please unite and help me! (And yes I know this isn't a petition about saving the planet or Brexit) but hey, makes a change to have something light!

  • Save The Railway Tavern In Hensall
    This is our village pub. It has a long and proud history. It has the potential to be a great asset to our community like many other pubs in neighbouring villages. It would be devastating to see it knocked down and turned into housing.

  • Keep the skatepark
    This is important because it is a way for children to relax, exercise and have fun. To take this skatepark away from us is like taking away our home. I know myself I go down there everyday and always have a good time.

  • Don't Lease Shire Hall - Keep Council-Run for Social Good
    More than 3,000 people from Cambridgeshire signed the first petition calling to keep the site in Council ownership. Now the County Council leadership have opted for a 40 year lease to Brookgate - who have demolished other historical and beautiful Cambridge buildings. During this time, untold changes and destruction could be caused to Shire Hall and other areas of the estate. Brookgate will profit from what should be a public amenity. Would it ever return to Council use? Brookgate has sufficient wealth to challenge the covenant that is in place and potentially charge for access to Castle Mound or deny it altogether should they wish to. Non- listed buildings on the site including Shire Hall could be destroyed or significantly altered ruining their architecture. The whole Shire Hall site has great historical significance. This was the seat of government since the Middle Ages when Cambridge Castle was built soon after Norman invasion of 1066. The site has been loved and used continuously by the public. Shire Hall, a beautiful 1930s building is needed as a place of democratic governance, arts and community. The land is owned by Cambridgeshire County Council however Councillors are elected to uphold the best interests and wishes of the people they represent. Insisting on our rights for this site will be an emblematic move toward the sort of society we want. As a public treasure this could benefit society now and for the future. Are we willing to relinquish it? Please sign, share and comment asking others to do the same. We need people to know about this and to show the Country Council that we oppose sale or leasing of the entire site. Feel free to suggest uses of spare space in buildings on the estate or approve other suggestions made. Please also send us statements, photos and videos of time spent at Castle Mound over the last 20 years. Post on social media or email them. They are needed as evidence for the Town Green application. Email them to Twitter @CastleMound or the Facebook page below.

  • Cancel the TV show “Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away”
    The Jeremy Kyle Show - which exploited people by turning human suffering into entertainment - has been permanently cancelled. But TV shows like it which profit from peoples humiliation are still allowed to exist. “Can't Pay? We'll Take It Away” - which follows bailiffs as they knock down doors and devastate the lives of families in debt - is one of the worst culprits. It’s already coming under the spotlight and people are starting to speak out. The show was even sued earlier this year for a breach of people’s privacy. If you think TV bosses shouldn't turn suffering into entertainment, please sign the petition to cancel "Can't Pay? We'll Take it Away" now.

  • Full transparency of Facebook pages
    Far too many people can hide behind Facebook pages and are allowed to behave however they see fit, facing no consequences for harassing innocent people. By Facebook enhancing the page transparency feature to include a list of admins this would hopefully make it more difficult to hide behind a page to troll individuals or organisations.

  • Save Kingston's Rose Theatre
    Due to Council cuts, the beloved Rose Theatre may be forced to close: the Council "will strip the Rose Theatre of its £265,000 annual funding by 2022 and will not replace a £147,000 bursary, which it paid the final instalment of this year".(1) This is at a time when the Council is ploughing millions into its reserves and raising its Councillors' allowances. We the undersigned know that Kingston Council is not bankrupt; it has the money to save the Rose -- the cultural heart of Kingston -- and must not cut its funding. I personally visit The Rose a lot with my wife. There have been some fantastic productions and it's a great night out that's affordable! It has strong connections to organisations across Kingston, including with the University. It really is a centre of culture and would be a tragedy to lose it.
