• Crawley Town FC training ground
    Crawley Town FC is loved by many in the Crawley area. The club has been struggling with training facilities for years and has been forced to use unsafe plastic pitches and local school grounds. The current training ground situation is not good enough for the club to progress to the next level. With access to the land at Bewbush, RH11 8WB, Crawley Town FCs success will progress greatly resulting in more opportunities for the residents of Crawley, an increase in the community and more visitors to the Crawley area which will have a positive effect on the local economy. Football often has a huge positive impact on towns and cities and this training ground land is about the longevity and foundation of Crawley Town FC. For these reasons, it will be a massive success for the Crawley community if Crawley Town FC are allowed to use Bewbush as their training ground site.

  • UK victims of terror let down by Government
    Uppermost among the terrifying sensations for a victim of terrorist attack must be the sudden loss of personal control and equally sudden complete vulnerability. How appalling that these are the very feelings with which many victims and certainly their families have to confront when subsequently they need financial support for inquests and court proceedings. There is no governmental provision for them in these situations. Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd has already drawn attention to this situation both inside and outside the House of Commons. He has sponsored an Early Day Motion for Parliamentary attention (link below) He writes : “British citizens who are victims of terrorist atrocities must receive, as a default, the same legal support the state bodies do. “French citizens, for example, if caught up in terrorist attacks, they – and their families – are automatically entitled to state-funded legal representation in court proceedings. “Frankly, the MOJ’s approach to the matter is an insult to all those who have lost loved ones in tragedies such as these. It begs the question; do the French authorities care more about their citizens than we do ours?” [11 June 2019] Stephen Lloyd's Early Day Motion at : https://edm.parliament.uk/early-day-motion/52897/statefunded-legal-representation-for-victims-of-terrorism

  • Don’t shut Disabled people out of mainstream education
    “Mainstream is the way, just we need more support in terms of government finance to make sure those people with disabilities are supported... If you have people with disabilities in mainstream schools able bodied people will see that from when they’re young and not find it weird to see a disabled person in their work office and not know how to approach it.“ - Joanne Wacha Our experience of education shapes our entire lives. Inclusion in mainstream society right from the start is essential if Disabled people are going to take our place in society as equal citizens. Non-disabled people need to grow up with Disabled people as friends, classmates and family members if they are to understand that we are part of society and including us is not optional. It’s so important, the UN says all Disabled people have a human right to participate in mainstream education, with children learning in the same school and classroom. But right now government funding cuts mean for many Disabled pupils, including those with special educational needs, attending their local schools has been made impossible. Funding for the support Disabled children need to participate equally, such as one to one support, therapists and specialist equipment, has been hard hit by cuts. More and more Disabled pupils have found themselves shut out from mainstream schools, even pushed out of the education system altogether. If you want to live in a society which values difference, where Disabled people are included as equal citizens, please join our call to make sure inclusive education gets the funding it desperately needs.

  • Plant 1.5 billion trees in the UK
    For the sake of our survival, we need bigger investment and urgency from our Government for our country and our planet if we are to make any real difference of avoiding a climate catastrophe. We need 1.5 billion trees to be planted by 2030. 2050 is too late. And any less is inadequate to this widespread huge humanitarian, environmental and climate crisis we all face together.

  • Petition to remove no left turn restriction on Withycombe Road and Inner Park Road Southfields SW19
    It doesn't prevent people using this route, it just diverts traffic further down Wimbledon Park Side and into the roads where gas servicing road works are taking place. This is creating gridlocked traffic in residential roads, which were previously quiet, as the roads are mostly single lane due to the resident's parked cars. The knock-on effect of this is causing much heavier traffic along the A3 and routes leading into Wimbledon, Putney and Wandsworth. Due to this, people are now trying to access Wimbledon via earlier A3 exits and this has created gridlocked traffic at Coombe Lane and surrounding residential roads also. Scrap this terrible idea. My children's School is in Southfields. If this goes on longer than the pilot. I will be taking my children out and finding another School.

  • People are not pests
    The signatories of this petition wish to register our disgust at Southern Rail treating people begging at stations as pests. These people have slipped through the widening cracks of our society through bad luck and deserve to be treated with dignity and compassion, not as a nuisance. We demand an apology from Southern Rail and the immediate removal of all “Security” notices telling people not to encourage begging by giving money.

  • Sustainable Confectionery Packaging
    Almost all (if not all) confectionery packaging is not recyclable today adding to the waste sent to landfill. This is crazy considering a lot of the main confectionery products used to be sold in recyclable packaging until recently. For example, Dairy Milk bars (Cadbury), Galaxy bars (Mars), Kit Kats (Nestle) all used to be in foil and paper until relatively recently, which could be recycled. Today all those bars are in plastic, the non-recyclable kind. Please sign the petition so we can show the big confectionery companies that their packaging matters and they actually need to return to their old packaging methods and expend that across their whole ranges.

  • Call a general election
    This is extremely important because of the amount of people suffering due to the way the conservatives have governed. Businesses are suffering our economy is suffering and our image to the world has been damaged beyond belief. Britain is not acting like a democracy the conservatives are guilty of allowing foreign states to interfere in our rights to a fair vote

  • Mandatory Carbon emissions labeling
    We are in the mist of a climate emergency. We have little time to act and we have to make it easier for the consumers to make educated decisions on purchases. Currently we are still seeing a lot of businesses confusing or creating doubt about their products. This is not acceptable.

  • Stop supporting BP
    The British Museum, The National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Opera House and The Royal Shakespeare Company are sponsored by the climate-wrecking oil giant BP. The arts are supposed to help us understand and explore important issues like climate change. Instead, these institutions are promoting a company that is making the problem worse. BP is one of the companies most responsible for the climate crisis. It is the 11th biggest corporate source of greenhouse emissions in history. 97% of BP’s business is still in oil and gas extraction, with just 3% of its investments going into renewables. The company spends tens of millions every year lobbying to stop new climate laws and slow down the growth of cleaner energy, and plans to invest £41 billion into new oil projects over the next 10 years. While BP rakes in huge profits, people around the world – especially those least responsible for the crisis in the Global South – are being hit by devastating droughts, floods and storms. BP also has close relationships with repressive governments around the world, who crack down hard on opposition to the company’s operations. By signing a sponsorship deal with BP, these four big arts institutions are helping the oil company get away with this behaviour, giving it a mask of respectability to hide its true actions. It’s time for the arts to stop promoting Big Oil. Learn more and get involved in the campaign: Behindthelogos.org bp-or-not-bp.org artnotoil.org.uk More information Under the current deal, the British Museum puts on a major BP-branded exhibition every year; the National Portrait Gallery holds the globally-famous BP Portrait Awards; the Royal Opera House holds “BP Big Screens” in public squares around the country; and the Royal Shakespeare Company has put BP branding on its discount tickets for 16-25 year olds. These institutions only receive between 0.5% and 1.3% of their annual income from BP. In return, the oil company gets to cover up its real activities and present itself as a normal and respectable part of society, rather than a company that is actively worsening the climate crisis. BP also gets to host swanky events at the venues it sponsors, giving it networking opportunities and helping it to make new business deals. Communities in Argentina, West Papua, Mexico, and Azerbaijan – to name but a few – have faced violence and imprisonment for standing up against BP’s extraction, pollution and corruption. BP continues to work closely with human rights-abusing regimes to gain access to their oil and gas, including jointly sponsoring exhibitions with the Egyptian and Russian governments at the British Museum.
