• Save Brown's Lane's cobbles!
    Brown's Lane has the biggest concentration of murals in Paisley (eg. the Gerry Rafferty, Paolo Nutini & St Mirrren murals) and has a unique, quaint character, to which the cobblestone street surface is pivotal. The lane receives many visitors from far and wide who come to experience the authentic atmosphere and the lane frequently serves as location for photo shoots. Instead of relaying the cobbles smoothly, Renfrewshire Council is proposing to replace the bulk of them with slabs, yet keeping and relaying the cobbles in adjoining George Place. Removing the cobbles will ruin the character and appearance of the lane and irrevocably destroy a part of our heritage that has remain virtually unchanged for hundreds of years. With the cobbles, festoon lighting and colourful buildings, Brown's Lane is Paisley's own 'hidden gem' and forms a cohesive visitor experience with the cobbled Shuttle Street, George Place and Sma' Shot Cottages, celebrating Paisley's rich local heritage. We implore the Council to keep and fix the cobbles in Brown's Lane in order to improve access and preserve our valuable built heritage.

  • Re-open the back door of the Exe Valley Leisure Centre
    So easy, safe access to the centre's toilets, changing facilities, and refreshment providers can continue, and the local people of all ages in Tiverton can be encouraged to comfortably stay active, and support the local sports clubs run by volunteers.

  • Put lights in Acton Park main path
    This path is now open in the evening due to a new school having been built in the park. The path is heavily used by parents, children and local people going between Acton Central Station and buses on Uxbridge Road. It is very dark in winter. The Churchfield Community Association has asked Ealing Council to install lights (solar if suitable) to come on only in winter and for limited hours, e.g. 6-8.30am and 4-8pm. The Council have asked us to show support for this proposal.

  • Sacking of off duty coastguards
    A large organisation taking this action against worthwhile thoughtful and brave men while doing a car rescue in their own time is unforgiveable and stupid

  • lets get pedestrian crossings in ashbourne
    due to increased traffic in ashbourne in general we are calling on derbyshire county council to install pedestrian crossings at these 2 points as we believe there is a serious safety concern. Yesterday we had fatal accident at the 1st place. Traffic is getting very heavy in ashbourne and it was only a matter of time before something happened. As for second location there have already been issues involving trucks parking inappropriately which makes a dangerous crossing even worse.

  • Save our South Kensington Post Office
    It is an intensely used Post Office in a unique location, less than 150 meters from South Kensington underground and bus station, and in a high-density residential area. This Post Office serves an unusual high number of residents, businesses, tourists, employees working nearby and institutions that are located next to the branch. If this Post Office were to close it would open up a huge hole in the network of post offices in the south east of the borough, which has already suffered from closures in the past. South Kensington Post Office is a vital social and community use which is essential for the population of South Kensington and south-east Chelsea. The set up and location of the proposed alternative branches are not fit for purpose. We need to keep this post office because it has a proper set up, specifically its closeness to a main transportation hub for easy access, step free access, wide internal layout for strollers and wheelchairs, sufficient counters to manage the customer flow and demand as well as broad range of services.

  • Mill Lane School Crossing
    With new houses are either end of Mill Lane traffic has increased and the safety of our children has reduced. With 2 near misses in just 1 week where children have nearly been knocked over by vehicles driving both up and down Mill Lane we feel it is only a matter of time before this is a reported incident.

  • Keep our Public Services Public - Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Trust
    UNISON and Unite the Union members are taking strike action to protect their jobs and to stay in the NHS Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust are forcing our members out of the NHS into a wholly owned subsidiary. They will no longer be employed by the NHS. Our members have given decades of hard work and committed service to the NHS and now they are being kicked out of the NHS Family. One worker stated “I’ve worked for the NHS for years, I never thought I’d be kicked in the teeth like this. Kicked out of the NHS and now I have to worry for my family and potential future attacks on my pay, terms and conditions”. Another asks “what will be next? Once they’ve kicked us out of the NHS who will be next in line?”. Many workers say they can’t afford to strike but feel there is no alternative "if we don’t fight now there’ll be no NHS left!”

  • To keep Poundland in Alloa
    There are fewer and fewer 'shops' in Alloa that add value to the town, Poundland stocks everything you need at obviously, a low cost, items you can get at last minute without having to order on line or pay triple for in other shops, poundworld went last year and for poundland to close too would be tragic for the town not to mention the staff that work in Poundland, i would like it to stay, as I'm sure many others would too.

  • Stop Parking Charges for NHS staff at North Walsham Memorial Hospital.
    North Norfolk is a rural area and public transport links to and from North Walsham Memorial Hospital are poor so that the majority of NHS staff working at North Walsham have no choice other than to drive to get into work. Staff on the wards can do up to 12 hour shifts including night shifts and bank holidays and public transport doesn't run 24/7. Most community staff require their cars to do their jobs in the local community, visiting patients in their homes throughout the year come rain or shine. Forcing Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Therapists and Administration Staff to apply and pay for parking permits is therefore in effect an additional job tax which hardworking and dedicated NHS staff should not have to pay. We feel it is simply unfair and unjust.

  • Save the Fairies
    So far so good!! Meetings have taken place between the council and our fairy queens and a positive outcome may be in the horizon. We've been asked by the fairies to not send any further petitions or comments to the council so I'm going to close down the petition Thanks for all your help so far!!! The Fullerton Fairytrail has been in these publicly accessible woodlands since 2015. Put together by fantastic volunteers, who also look after the fairy doors and add more doors/stories to the trail. The sheer delight and enjoyment children (and adults) get from reading the stories and knocking on the fairy doors is priceless. “Sadly we have discovered the fairy mums who look after us have now been asked by the council to sign legal documents to allow us to stay but the fairy mums feel these terms are not realistic. The fairy mums are happy to look after our doors and have them painted each year, they have enough pennies to look after us but are also being asked to become fully and legally responsible for any fairy people visiting us who use the council's pathways. This means if any fairy people have a trip or fall they will come to our fairy mums to make a claim as the council don't want any legal responsibility for the visiting fairy people. The fairy mums are very sad and are trying to resolve things but if they can't it may mean we have to fly away from the Fullarton fairy trail and try to find new fairy homes. All good things come to an end but the memories will last forever.” Memories are made in places like this and South Ayrshire council will make the fairies disappear if they continue with their plans to hold the volunteers to account. Please sign to show your support of the Fairies
