  • Save the Windrush Generation - allow them to stay
    17/4/18: We did it! The voices of cross party MPs and the respectful but resolute demands of the Commonwealth Heads of State, together with personal stories in the press, finally all had an impact. The government apology and promised action were resoundingly good if tarred with shameful tardiness. But implementation is all and we should ensure that an independent body takes on the role of monitoring progress, highlighting problems and ensuring a voice for the people directly affected. Only then, will justice be done. Click here for more information:

  • Opening hours to suit the community at Artizan Street Library
    After our well publicised local campaign, I am pleased to announce that the City of London agreed to extend the hours at Artizan Street Community Library. This is fantastic news! In addition to extending the hours the City will also now be trialling a Saturday opening slot for six months. From 14th May 2018 the new Library hours will be as follows: Monday- 8am-7pm Tuesday- 8am-5.30pm Wednesday- 8am-5.30pm Thursday- 8am-5.30pm Friday- 8am-5.30pm Saturday- 9am-1pm This really is tremendous news for the local community and it will now mean that this wonderful resource is available for even more people to use on a daily basis. Thank you to everyone who signed the petition and to the parents who came to the Guildhall last month to hand-in the petition. We couldn't have got this result without all of your support.

    15/04/18 We Won! Further to your truly amazing support we've achieved a very positive outcome! The HUGEST thanks from Howard and I - this result would not have happened without you! Jim & Howard. A public inquiry called by the Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Gove concluded on 27th March with a formal agreement to restrict the amount of water Southern Water is allowed to abstract from the world famous chalk rivers Test and Itchen. The company has not only abandoned its longstanding plans for a £50 million pipeline that could have transferred up to 45 million litres of water a day from the River Test to the Itchen but has also now agreed to tight restrictions on the more limited transfer it had proposed at the start of the inquiry.

Derbyshire NHS managers are now saying this about plans to scrap the 535 beds in Derbyshire: ''The original STP made heroic assumptions about bed reductions - we are now remodelling these in the light of the population and other factors''. Paul Wood, the Southern Derbyshire CCG Chair Thank you and well done.

  • Protect the rights of vulnerable children and care leavers
    UPDATE: 03/03/17 We Won! The government is set to scrap plans to allow councils to apply for exemptions from social care legislation in the face of continuing opposition: Previously we also won a battle to get this rejected in the Lords. Peers voted 245/213 in favour of dropping these terrible proposals. This petition signed by over 100,000 people was named twice in that debate! Congratulations everyone! Thank you for helping to get rid of this massive threat to children’s rights!

  • Give Lawand a chance to communicate
    05/04/18 - Great News! Lawand can stay to apply for asylum. I wanted to share the wonderful news with you that Lawand and his parents and brothers have a victory to share. Our government was trying to send them back to Germany to claim asylum but the courts have granted Lawand leave to stay in the UK to claim asylum here. Thank you so much for signing the petition, sharing with your friends and caring about this child. Thanks too, to his amazing legal team. A beautiful poet, Mary Oliver, writes 'what are you going to do with your one wild and precious life?' Well, over 12,000 of us worked together to apply a little pressure and give a lot of encouragement and now the life of one persecuted family is changing and hoping for a secure future. Deep thanks to everyone. Their asylum process will begin in about 6 months. Meanwhile Lawand continues his education in British Sign Language and is flourishing. Esther Freeman.
