  • Re placement Gates
    Gates have been erected at Maudland Road thru to Seymore Road, South Shore, Blackpool, it is understood the gates were for the security of the rear of St Heliers Road. The placement of the gates has restricted access to and from Bancroft park and the South Shore area as well as easier access to bus routes on Lytham Road and the main gate of Blackpool Gateway Academy. These inconveniences have had a detrimental effect on the residents of St Heliers Road, Saville Road, Maudland Road, Baron Road, Stansfield Street and Central Drive and beyond. The problems cover a range of issues, namely lowered security, health issues, traffic problems and the general wellbeing of the community. Repositioning the access to this walk way will allow access to Bancroft park and South Shore and improve the wellbeing of many of the residents.

  • Build 3 Outdoor Basketball MUGA areas in Wakefield
    There are currently only two outdoor basketball courts accessible to the public in the whole of Wakefield which has more than 300,000 residents.It is important to support children/young people to achieve their potential and to build stronger communities. Culture and sports play an increasingly important role in transforming Wakefield, building more Basketball courts will bring about positive change and can help tackle (ASB) Anti-social behaviour while improving the health and wellbeing of the district. 70.5% of residents in Wakefield are considered overweight/obese compared to 64.8% being the national average. Health benefits of playing basketball 15 minutes a day can reduce risk of heart disease, asthma, strokes, chronic illness and also keeping your weight under control. Anti-social behaviour (ASB) has increased by 11%  and racial hate crimes have risen in light of the brexit. Basketball can help brigde the gap between communities and ambitions for young people, as well as giving the opportunity to improve health & fitness.

  • Make Hailsham’s High Street Disabled Access Friendly Again
    The High Street does look good with the improvements and the bollards were meant to stop cars parking on the pavement. But now there’s a problem on the narrow parts for disabled people using scooters and wheelchairs and people with prams. They can’t stop to go into the shops as another scooter/wheelchair/pram can’t get past and they can’t pass another from the opppsote direction. They can’t do a U turn either. Please sign so that Hailsham Town Council comes up with a solution to suit disabled people and the car parking problem. Even if you aren’t disabled please be kind and sign as disabled people are often thought of last, if thought of at all. Thank you.

  • Free gym classes for people with diagnosed mental health problems
    Students experiencing mental health difficulties need to be supported by their University as fully as possible. Being given access to the university mental health services is not always substantial. Students should be empowered to help themselves. Moderate exercise has been proven to help improve mood and general well being. Therefore, there should be no barrier preventing individuals from being able to attend regular gym classes. Classes can be expensive, and for those who find it difficult to motivate themselves in the first place, the cost of the class can be a further disincentive. Furthermore, financial hardship at university can be inflated by the experience of a mental health problem. Giving those with a diagnosed condition free access to the exercise program encourages them to take positive action to help themself. Better mental health can result in improved academic performance, and being part of an exercise class can improve someones mood and self esteem by enhancing their feelings of belonging within a community. Please sign this petition to encourage the University of Strathclyde to create a system which gives those with a diagnosed mental health problem free exercise class access/ passes.

  • Bring Back Frida Kahlo's Iconic Lipstick to Help Fund Women in Mexico
    Frida Kahlo was a cultural icon who celebrated her beauty with internationally acclaimed flare. She taught young girls everywhere that despite their disability or background - beauty is for all. Her iconic dark brows and lipstick adorn the walls of the public and elite alike, in her stunning original works or dog-eared printouts, torn from borrowed magazines. Frida made a stand for women everywhere, challenging perceptions of beauty and idealised standards for women, she stood for strength, for justice and for equality. We can't all afford an original piece to honour her memory but what better way to do it than by keeping those ideals alive through the medium of make-up.

  • Clamp cars that park in disabled parking spaces
    The amount of people who park in a diabled space without a blue badge is disgusting. People who need to use the space due to a disability often have to park away from the entrance and struggle to the shop, all because someone to lazy to park in an appropriate bay has parked in a disabled space. Any money raised will help fund charities who desperately need the funds to help with people with disabilities across the country.

  • Support for a 20mph zone - Glencaple village
    Our wee dog (Dougal) was killed on the road here on Saturday 23 June 2018. I’m not blaming the driver, I blame myself for not securing the garden to the correct standard. However, I do strongly propose a lower speed limit. There are no pavements for several metres along Church Street, this and the fact there is a school on the same street concerns me with regards to the 30mph limit. This is too fast to stop in time if a child should suddenly run on to the road. I would be happy to pay a contribution towards the signs, I’m sure other parents in the village will feel the same. We have excess of 14 children now independently walking, cycling or on scooters each day around this wee village. Let's make this happen.
