We Want a Weekly or Fortnightly Market in Cleveleys, Lancashire
Cleveleys is a great town which is popular with people from all over the world! We have some of the best sunrises and sunsets to be seen, a bustling town centre and a strong sense of community. However communities only get together when there's an event taking place. Let's improve our sense of community and give people something that will bring us together on a more regular basis. We have the Car Show once a year and although it's amazingly popular it isn't enough! We need more events to bring everyone together so i have a dream.. There are markets in Poulton, Great Eccleston and other Wyre Council run towns however Cleveleys doesn't have one! The residents of Cleveleys used to have a market which was forced to close however this was never replaced. We have a large and wasted expanse of land at Jubilee Gardens which could be used during the dry months, and if the main town centre road was temporarily closed on a sunday we could have the market there ! In Europe there are countless markets that are held every week - some towns rely on these for the fresh and reasonably price produce which is offered. Cleveleys has a decent number of farms in the local area which produce various fresh vegetables, eggs etc. There may be some cattle farms as well so we could have fresh food on our doorstep. Why go to the supermarket? Please support me in this cause

Stop the sale of Colne Valley’s Peter Brook Centre (the Cottage) in North Wales
Decision makers at Colne Valley High School are attempting to sell the much loved Peter Brook Centre in North Wales, also known as the “school cottage.” The PBC is a Field Studies Centre in North Wales held in trust for the school and young people of the broader Colne Valley. Many of the current pupils and their parents are not even aware that Colne Valley High School has access to this valuable and unique resource due to shameful neglect over recent years. Friends of the PBC are strongly against this disgraceful action and are fighting for it to be reinstated to its original purpose. To sell this cottage is to directly and consciously deprive young people of the community of their heritage and wider educational experience. It will deprive pupils from lower income families of a valuable low cost recreational asset. Help us retain this legacy for current and future generations. *************** Use of the PBC by CVHS pupils declined from 2001; this coupled with neglect and failure by the Trustees to maintain the facility led to the Centre being closed in 2015 on Health & Safety grounds. Nothing has been done by the Trust since the closure to address the Health & Safety issues and they have recently stated it is their intention to sell. This denies even the few local youth groups who were aware of this incredible asset the ability to use it. The Peter Brook Centre was purchased in 1974 through the fundraising efforts of pupils, staff and the people of the Colne Valley to commemorate a member of staff who was tragically killed in a climbing accident. It can accommodate 15 people and additional staff and is located close to Snowdonia National Park. It was extended and improved in 1983 by the addition of a classroom named after Ian Roberts, another member of staff who died climbing in the Dolomites. For a regular comprehensive school in the state sector to have such a facility is rare and something in which to take pride. For more than 30 years trips ran regularly allowing all pupils the opportunity to visit. There were subject-specific field trips and it was also used by Duke of Edinburgh award participants. The cooperation and goodwill of staff enabled thousands of Colne Valley pupils to experience a residential visit, and because the Centre is owned in Trust on behalf of the school and young people of the Colne Valley, costs are minimal allowing EVERYONE the opportunity to benefit, not just those from higher-income families. There are pockets of significant social deprivation in the Colne Valley area with some postcodes being amongst the 10% most deprived in the whole of England and Wales based on government data. People here have limited disposable income to pay for the kind of residential trip run by commercial providers that many schools use. Accommodation costs for a directly owned centre can be as low as £15 per learner per day making this a much more affordable option for many families. The PBC once provided the opportunity for affordable school trips – and could do so again. To sell this cottage is to directly and consciously deprive pupils from lower income families of a valuable part of their education. It further directly contradicts the spirit in which the PBC was founded. *************** Friends of the Peter Brook Centre is an organisation of enthusiastic volunteers with a range of skills, talents and experience who wish to assist CVHS in retaining, reinstating and maintaining this asset; bring the Centre back into full use; enhance and continue the facilities for the education and recreation of the people of the Colne Valley. For further information on the aims and activity of this group please see The Friends of the Peter Brook Centre on Facebook. Please help us ensure that future generations are not denied their legacy. Please sign our petition and support our call for change: Stop the sale of Colne Valley’s Peter Brook Centre in North Wales Demand the current Trustees of the Peter Brook Centre engage in bringing the centre back into use Insist that additional Trustees be appointed to ensure a positive and sustainable future for the legacy they have been entrusted

Save Kilbowie Outdoor Centre
We need to save Kilbowie from NLC budget cuts. Let's get as many signatures as possible and show NLC that our kids need this place to remain open. P7 across NL attend for 5 days and it gives them an experience that will stay with them forever. People I have spoken to have all stated how much their kids love it and no one has had a bad experience. We need to show NLC that we are not taking this lying down and we will fight this! Please sign and share as much as you can.

Wakefield Council - Keep The Managers on Wintersett Lakes
In the grand scheme of things, our cause is not an important one. (Natural disasters, wars, life threatening illnesses etc:) But a lovely guest asked me to set up a petition here too - so that people have all sorts of ways to let Wakefield Council know that having the opportunity to come stay here is very important to them. They (you) care about the right to spend time in the countryside in a safe, welcoming way. The current planning system has lots of hurdles to jump through, designed to protect green belt. We all want that. The planning system is not there however to make it 'impossible' for people like us to provide access to green belt in ways that you want. Green belt belongs to us all, and sharing the privilege of living here, in a way that respects others and allows us to try and make the experience of staying here as good and safe as we possibly can is what the planning system can facilitate if local Councils want to support it. We need to stay here in our mobile home to enable others to stay here in that safe,welcoming way. The Council have the power to make the decision to support or oppose us in providing this essential quality service for you. You - our guests and potential guests have presented them with very robust justification of why we need to be here on site, on hand for you and for Wakefield's reputation as a supporter of quality tourism. Wakefield Council call themselves a listening Council - You are asking them to listen to you!
