  • Stop Sefton banning off lead exercise for dogs
    19/02/18 We won Thank you for signing the petition Stop Sefton banning off lead exercise for dogs. Due to your support we convinced Sefton Council not to introduce draconian PSPOs preventing dogs from being off lead on our beaches and nature reserves. We have since worked with the council to produce responsible dog ownership policies. Now we have managed to win Aviva community funding to create a Sefton Dogs website which we hope to have up and running by the summer. The site will provide useul information about our coast and countryside, promote dog friendly amenities and encourage responsible ownership. Should you wish to contact us our new email address is

  • Keep Florence Park Children's Centre open-access and community-owned
    23/09/17 - We won the campaign At Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet meeting yesterday, the Cabinet approved the Aspire community bid to take over the former children's centre building in Florence Park and turn into a community-led hub. This will enable the building to remain in public hands, and open-access to the wider community. Twelve people from across the local area spoke at the meeting, and their points were made strongly and clearly. The cabinet said that the Aspire bid demonstrated the strong community buy-in and support, which was crucial for the future success of any proposal. The months of work by many people won the day. Although this must be disappointing for Aflah Nursery, we are delighted they have been promised Oxfordshire County Council’s support to find new premises, and the offer to resubmit a proposal for transition funding for open access services. So a very big THANK YOU to everyone who shared this vision for a community space in our beautiful park. Work is already beginning on the next phase of this very exciting project! Best wishes, Candida March

In 2019, he will become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of his legal team, his MP Keir Starmer, and each and every one of you, justice has been done. To all of Stoly’s supporters locally, across the UK and even across the globe, this is the moment to say a huge THANK YOU and well done! 03/04/17 STOP PRESS: We have just had an update from Stoly's MP Keir Starmer, who has received written confirmation from Robert Goodwill, the immigration minister, that Stoly has been granted a 14-day stay of his deportation while he prepares his legal case. CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to all his supporters who have signed the petition so far. This opportunity for Stoly to make his case is all thanks to you, and also to Keir Starmer, who has been working tirelessly and to great effect on his behalf. This is not the end of the road: there is still a difficult legal case ahead, and we will keep you posted to let you know how you can continue to support Stoly over the coming days and weeks. But for now, this has been a good weekend's work - well done, and watch this space! Neil Finer
