    Update 08/04/16 - We Won! The government have backed down on their plans to change animal welfare codes. The government said it had reconsidered the move "in light of views raised". It said the current statutory system would stay in place, but that it would "continue to work with industry" to improve the animal welfare code system.

  • Safe crossing for Woodhurst Pupils across Harvest Ride
    UPDATE - 10/04/17 - We Won! I can't thank you enough for signing the petition 'Safe crossing for Woodhurst Pupils across Harvest Ride'. I started the petition as a local mum who has to cross Harvest Ride each day to take my son to school, I also travel most of the time to school, with my 15 month old in a pram. The road is a nightmare to cross; too many vehicles speeding over 40mph and not slowing down. Many people aren't even aware there is a new school on Sopworth road and the current signage is poor. My intention with the petition was always to 'speed things up' with getting the council to commit to a date for improvements. My previous dialogue with the council was unsuccessful in securing a commitment to these improvements. I hand delivered our petition to the council on the 27th March, I followed up with several phone conversations and more recently an email to demonstrate the sheer number of people supporting this cause since the printed signatures were delivered. Much toing and froing, and finally they gave me a satisfactory response. They're going to widen the existing traffic islands, reduce the carriageway width (forcing cars to slow down on approach) and install appropriate flashing signage on both sides of the road. All of this work will be carried out during the summer holidays. Our petition, coupled with pressure from the school, local parish and other parties has pushed the council to committ to these works. Thank you so much! Nicola Bhojani

  • Save Curzon Mayfair
    UPDATE - 06/04/17 I’ve just received some fantastic news: the Curzon Mayfair is no longer under threat of closure. The developers and cinema have come to an agreement, and so the venue will continue to operate as normal. I therefore want to say a huge thank you for getting behind the campaign to save the cinema. Without your support and the 27,000 others who signed the petition, we almost certainly wouldn’t be making this announcement today. It shows that by pulling together, we can help protect the West End’s cultural heritage.

  • STOP THE SHAMEFUL DEPORTATION OF KENTISH TOWN'S STOLY JANKOVIC
    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
