The funding of £1m was given to this area in 2012 over a 10 year period and one main priority should be education for our children and young people, there has been a great demand for supplementary education but we cannot afford to fund this ourselves. Whilst the funds for this Big Local Area has been inappropriately allocated to pay Big Local Co-ordinator’s salary, run activities and events that attempt to address short term needs of some members of the community to the detriment of Barnfield children education. We therefore solicit that the Barnfield Big Local funding subsequently be allocated in a way that prioritise our children’s education.

  • Plastic Packaging for Bananas Should NOT be a Thing!
    Over eight million tonnes of plastic enter oceans every year, with 80% coming from land. Bananas DO NOT need packaging, they have skins. It's making me go bananas.

  • Save our park!
    Children do not have many areas which are safe to play in as it is. In todays society, it is more important now than ever that our children have safe play areas to access close to their homes.

  • Save the Grace
    This has been a very important venue to the people of Ellesmere Port for nearly eighty years. There has been a tremendous loss of pubs in the area in recent years. It is a very attractive building and taking it away would be very detrimental to the area.

  • 1998 and onwards student loans
    So far, almost 20 years payments has barely reduced any loan balance. The 1998 era hasn't been looked at and We were the first to receive loans rather than grants. It is only just and fair that we have the same cap on how many years we are expected to pay the loan for- in line with current student loan proposals.

  • Reduce PIP stress for Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers
    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory disease. It largely affects synovial joints, which are lined with a specialised tissue called synovium. RA typically affects the small joints of the hands and the feet, and usually both sides equally and symmetrically, although any synovial joint can be affected. It is a systemic disease and so can affect the whole body, including the heart, lungs and eyes.Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disease of ups and downs. One day, your joints feel pretty good. The next your joints are swollen and in pain and you can barely get out of bed. These symptom episodes – called flares – can be unpredictable and debilitating. Flares come in two varieties, Predictable” flares have a known trigger. For example, you decide to clean your house from top to bottom one day, overdo it and end up with swollen, stiff joints the next day. Overexertion, poor sleep, stress or an infection like the flu can all set off RA symptoms. Blood samples are used to measure levels of the stress hormone cortisol as well as inflammatory cytokines -- including TNF-alpha and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) -- believed to play a key role in RA severity. Test have shown that patients who have a tendency for more worrying are reported to have slightly more disease activity, more swollen joints and more pain after during and after a stressful event. Approximately one third of people stop work because of the disease within 2 years of onset, and this prevalence increases thereafter.While RA isn’t fatal, complications can shorten your lifespan by roughly 10 years. However, it’s important to note that disease progression varies greatly from person to person. People who test positive for RF and anti-CCPs tend to progress at a faster rate. Improvements need to be put in place to assist people living with Rheumatoid Arthritis to not have to have stress factors increased which can then in turn exasperated their immune system to raise inflammation and cause further damage and incapacity.

  • Judicial review of police behaviour in the Catalonia referendum
    The Spanish police’s behaviours were violent and totally disproportionate. This was not policing by consent. The primary role of the police should be to protect and serve the people, not act as a para military arm of which ever government is in power. The events were unacceptable in a western democracy. There needs to be some form of accountability, otherwise a potentially terrifying precedence has been set.
