Petition to Rushmoor Borough Council
Stop the closure of Southwood Golf Course
Southwood Golf Course has been an integral part of the local community for 40 years and attracts visitors from all walks of life who can enjoy a beautiful course at an affordable price not available at other courses in the area. The facility is well used by members and non-members alike with over 25,000 rounds of golf played every year. The golf course contributes to a vibrant, inclusive community for males and females of all ages. It embraces diversity in our community by encouraging and providing participation for all, regardless of age, gender, ethnic background or income. It plays a vital part in the health and well being of it's members and a closure would remove many members primary source of physical exercise and social community, without an affordable, local alternative. It has raised in the region of £300,000 for local charities, unrelated to the club itself, such as Frimley Park Children's Hospital, Help for Heroes, Alzheimer's & Dementia charities, Count the Kicks and many others. It's closure would not guarantee the space would be used, maintained and enjoyed by as many people who use the Golf Course currently.
Petition to Royal Mail
Closure of Royal Mail's Hampton Delivery Office
Royal Mail is considering plans to close the local sorting office in Hampton and relocate Hampton delivery operations over 4 miles away to Ashford. Poor transport links between Hampton and the site of the Ashford delivery office will make journeys for local residents difficult and time consuming, especially for elderly, disabled or people who work during the week. We call for Royal Mail to reconsider their plans on closing the local delivery office in Hampton, or make adequate arrangements with local Post Offices to allow residents to collect their mail from a more local, easier location.
Petition to Sheffield City Council, The Charity commission
Protect Graves Park! Don't sell Cobnar Cottage!
Cobnar Cottage in Graves Park is up for auction at the end of this month. If the Council (acting as trustees of the park)succeed in selling the cottage, it will break the covenants on Graves Park. This will put any of the rest of the park at risk of sale. It also puts at risk all the other covenants on property given to the people of Sheffield by J G Graves. Graves Park does not belong to the Council, it belongs to the citizens of Sheffield. In 2009 Sheffield City Council put all of the Graves Park covenants into one scheme, to protect all of the park and to stop any future disputes. By selling the cottage they are breaking their own agreements of just 6 years ago. The latest proposed solution is that a stonemason has volunteered to live in the cottage and restore it to its former glory, using his skills. The Friends of Graves Park have agreed to fund his work (he would give his labour for free and would only need funding for raw materials). The stonemason would also like to run training for young people and workshops for the public. The cottage would remain within the Graves Park trust and in public ownership. This is the perfect solution to the fate of the cottage. The Council, however, see no value in a stonemason working in Graves Park and have rejected this proposal. They are determined to sell the cottage. The Council says the people of Sheffield do not care about Cobnar Cottage and support its sale. Act now! Sign this petition! Write to your local Councillors! Write to the leader of the Council! Write to your MP! Help us to protect the covenants before it is too late! Support us in protecting Graves Park!
Petition to Simon Jones
NO to Premier Inn in St David's, Pembrokeshire
No to Premier Inn, St David's Facts Premier Inn is not contributing financially to the construction of the social housing or swimming pool in St David's The land on which Premier Inn propose to build was earmarked just for housing in the Local Development Plan Premier Inn won't support local businesses, it will undermine them The land being sold to Premier Inn is privately owned by someone outside of Pembrokeshire. None of the funds raised will go towards the housing, swimming pool, or back into the community Premier Inn needs the community housing in order to exist here. The housing does not need and should not support Premier Inn Premier Inn are part of a large multinational company.

Petition to Dixon’s Carphone
Save Carphone Warehouse Amersham
As you may have heard Dixon’s Carphone is closing 92 Carphone Warehouse stores; Amersham is one of them. We need to keep this store open as it’s in a prime location for a load of people in the Bucks county. Both Chesham and Beaconsfield are being closed as well. Amersham out of the three, is the only store open 7 days a week. The closet store from Amersham would be either Wycombe or Watford. This makes it inaccessible for the older generation who relies on the Amersham store. This store has to remain open to allow for a better community in Amersham. Not many people realise this but Carphone Warehouse is the home of comparison as they compare phone bills, Home broadband and TV as well as Energy bills. This makes things easier for those who struggle with technology and need help. Why should they have to travel an excess of miles when they currently have a store on their door step. KEEP AMERSHAM OPEN!
