  • Save Legal Aid – Say No to Cut-Price Justice
    This campaign was a success! Well done to everyone who was involved - together we did it! After months of campaigning from 38 Degrees, Liberty and other groups, Chris Grayling announced that the right to choose a Legal Aid lawyer would not be taken away.

  • Fare Deal for Bath Families
    UPDATE: 16/06/14 Congratulations! First announced cuts to bus fares in Bath for families, children and young people. These changes are definitely a step in the right direction. We could have hoped for more, but the campaign’s main job is done. My next move is to send the petition to Paul Matthews as a reminder of our views. In the meantime it’s important that we all keep an eye on fares, especially in January when rises are usually implemented. I see the final job for the campaign is ensuring that bus prices never rise out of control again.

  • Save MOSI
    The museum is saved! After more than 45,000 people signed petitions to protect the science museums in the north of England, Culture minister Ed Vaizey announced that the museums would not be given the proposed 10% budget cut and that there was "no question of them closing." The MP for York Central said: "All the campaigning and all the warnings sent to the government that it would be an act of cultural vandalism if one of these museums were to close appears to have been heeded."

Thank you all for signing the petition - 2,744 signatures of support undoubtably made a difference - amounting to around 10% of Frome town's population. Well done also to those 80 of you that made a direct objection to the council, as that is the forum they really have to listen to.
