Petition to WWE Board of Directors, World Wrestling Entertainment

PETITION: The Davey Boy Smith WWE Hall of Fame Petition.

Celebrities supporting this petition. Davey WWE accomplishments were amazing and thrilling. Davey was always ready to step in to the squared circle. Every night Davey sacrificed his own health to thrill fans all over the world and he did it because he loved the business. The Career of Davey boy Smith is without doubts the biggest factory in the amazing support the British fan’s give the WWE over the past four decades. He drew in children of my generation with his amazing power and patriotic character and once we started watching the World Wrestling Entertainment we were all hooked. The fact that Summer Slam 1992 was such a success and still holds up as a brilliant pay per view does shows how important The British Bulldog (Davey Boy Smith) was to the WWE and the whole wrestling business in general . That what the WWE Hall of Fame is there for to recognize the greats such as Davey Boy Smith. Without Davey being in the WWE Hall of Fame there will always be a strong British and European contingent representing him and fighting for him the way he fought to represent us the British and the European fans. Please would you vote for the British Bulldog to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame. We don't have a British Hall of Famer in the World Wrestling Entertainment. We also feel this petition might help other British wrestlers to be inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame after Davey is inducted. This petition is also to get a country to be recognize in the WWE Hall of Fame. Please sign for the United Kingdom and for the British Bulldog. This petition was created with permission from Davey Boy Smith family and supported by Wrestling Legends and Wrestling promoters.

Save Tower Hamlets Youth Sport

Youth Sport in Tower Hamlets is in peril! The Tower Hamlets Youth Sport Foundation’s work currently reaches over 30,000 young people in schools, brings over 15,000 young people into competitive sport, over 12,000 young people into extra-curricular sport and over 6,000 young people into club and community participation. Hundreds of these children have been supported into elite and representative levels, and compete all over the UK and Europe. At peak times THYSF delivers over 400 hours of non-curriculum sports activity per week and without THYSF, young people in Tower Hamlets would not have the opportunity to take part in competitive badminton, basketball, cricket, fencing, gymnastics, handball, hockey, judo, tennis or weightlifting. As a consequence of these developments Tower Hamlets has soared into being one of the best sporting boroughs in London as demonstrated by recent London Youth Games finishing positions (As of June 2017, Tower Hamlets is positioned 6th out of 33 London Boroughs). Proposed changes to THYSF’s employment and function could see this activity totally disappear and over 10 years of progress reversed, despite the Council continuing to spend £3.8M per year on sport and physical activity, very little of which is spent on children. Tower Hamlets Council are currently making decisions over the future of THYSF staff and programmes, so if you feel passionately that young people in Tower Hamlets should continue to have sporting opportunities comparable or better than those which other children in London get, please sign our petition to convince the Council to continue supporting the growth of THYSF.

Petition to Haringey Council

Stop redevelopment threats to the Broadwater Farm Area of Tottenham - Protect our estates!

We say NO to any demolitions of local homes. PROTECT all the facilities and improvements made in the area! In their Draft Haringey Local Plan undergoing consultation, Haringey Council planners are proposing a shocking and totally unnecessary, potential demolition and redevelopment 'zone' [Site SA62] covering Broadwater Farm (including the BWF Community Centre), Somerset Close, Lido Square, Moira Close, and some houses along Lordship Lane. Some or all of this great, community-spirited area of Tottenham could be under threat from property developers in the future, blighting the area for years. The Council have confirmed that they are considering ‘all options’ for the Broadwater Farm council housing estate. Council planners also propose that the pleasant adjacent low-level Housing Association housing estates be designated as an area 'suitable for tall buildings' of 6-11 storeys. This is despite the fantastic, award-winning improvements to the area local people have successfully fought for and achieved together over the last 30 years - a wide range of community facilities, the UK's first ever integrated primary school campus, a health centre, landscaping and play areas, refurbished estate blocks with concierges, a sports field managed by the legendary Broadwater United youth football academy, the nationally-famous Harmony Gardens, and last but not least Tottenham's largest public park which has just undergone a wonderful community-led renaissance! These successful regeneration efforts have been led by Broadwater Farm Residents’ Association, Broadwater United Sports And Football Academy, and the Friends of Lordship Rec - in partnership with Haringey Council's housing and parks' services - and are now admired and celebrated throughout the UK and beyond. We will not allow this area to become blighted and a prey to property developers. We support the campaign to defend the area, and to protect all the improvements made. The draft proposal must be withdrawn immediately.
