Save charity's community hub from closure

Caldicot Musical Theatre Society (CMTS) is a Charity carrying out its aims in South Wales to provide entertainment to the local community whilst developing its members in the arts and social skills.  Running for over 85 years and with approximately 70 members aged between 6 and 75 years it is a highly successful society with a passion for its community and members.   In 2017 CMTS took a lease on a disused canteen space within a business park and turned it into a fully functioning theatre/conferencing space which is being used daily by lots of community groups.  2 years and £35k investment later through lottery funding, community grants, volunteering and donations, CMTS is being forced to leave its home it has worked so hard to create.  Monmouthshire County Council who have recently bought the business park, have made the possibility of staying in the venue impossible by raising the rent astronomically.  They intend to turn it into offices, there's no regard for the benefit CMTS brings to the community nor the heartache and financial commitment we have given to the venue.  Neither is there any suggestion of relocating us at this point. We need to stop this now and give the community back this valuable resource.  We have full support of local town Councillors, now we need yours too!

Petition to UK Parliament

Stop the Installation of Hazardous 5G cell towers in the UK

Hundreds of thousands of 5G cell towers are already being installed across the UK, with the UK's first 5G service going live on May 30th. 5G cell towers are "small" cell antennas which are being installed onto buildings and street light poles. These cell towers use High frequency submillimetre and millimetre waves to transmit data at faster speeds, but have devastating consequences on Human and Animal Health. The waves do not travel far hence the large number of cell towers being installed. It is estimated these towers need to be installed within 500 meters of each other or every 2 - 8 homes. These wireless transmitters will be installed in our streets, in front of our homes and schools and we have no choice! This will greatly increase our Radio Frequency radiation. Scientists worldwide are calling for a halt to 5G roll-out because of the hazards to human health and impacts to wildlife. “Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being.” – EMF Scientific Appeal This is still a largely untested technology and a dangerous experiment to everyone which the UK government needs to take seriously. Brussels have halted their 5G roll-out. “I cannot welcome such technology if the radiation standards, which must protect the citizen, are not respected, 5G or not. The people of Brussels are not guinea pigs whose health I can sell at a profit. We cannot leave anything to doubt.” – Céline Fremault, Minister of the Government (Brussels-Captial Region). Call for the UK to take action too and Stop the installation of 5G cell towers. More information and studies can be found here: Environmental Health Trust - Top Facts on 5G Thank You

Petition to Theresa May MP, President of the United States

Make a change to the veterans support sector that will see veterans supported when needed!

We have veterans that are homeless, veterans that are job less, veterans suffering with mental health difficulties in Prisons and veterans taking their lives seemingly daily because of the lack of support shown by their government and countries who have been protected by the sacrifices that those who’ve served were willing to make.  Veterans deserve better than relying on charities and waiting for NHS medical and wellbeing support. Veterans who can’t see a way out other than to take their own lives should receive immediate support and treatment. Veterans need a change to the system as donations made to charities are not making it to the veterans who need it! Three of the top charities in the UK give 71%, 57.4% and 60% of the monies donated to their charities, to deliver support to veterans! this doesn't mean the veterans receive this value of support! It is absolutely scandalous! Charitable donations are being used to pay big wages and administrative structures and not supporting those who it’s been gifted and donated for. We need a change! Support veterans directly via Investors in Veterans and ExFor+ C.I.C. to aid in the development of a National Veterans Support Service delivered by ExFor+ C.I.C. who want to give service leavers and veterans jobs, education, future purpose and above all support to achieve their goals ambitions and the futures that they are able to work towards.  Help us make a change, because we wouldn’t be able to ask you to make a change if it wasn’t for those who’ve served you to protect your rights and freedoms!
