Where is the Play?

Petition for Single Agency for the Support of Survivors of Abuse

Swinley Drive Safety

This is a petition to Swindon Borough Council to put in some safety measures on Swinley Drive. Currently there are no safe places to cross this road.  The two allocated crossings are on a blind corner and 100 yards after this corner.

Traffic lights at crossing of Malden Road Cheam

The undersigned demand a full enquiry into safety matters at the junction of Malden Road and Chatsworth Road in Cheam, Sutton. Serious risks are faced by children and adults crossing at this point, either to access the two schools in Chatsworth Road or to enter the park at the end of Popinjay's Row. A serious accident has already happened at this point. A zebra crossing is inadequate and traffic calming measures and a pelican crossing are required to prevent a fatality at this junction.

Free Transport to for Imberhorne Upper children from Crawley Down

The Government dictate that ALL school age children who live over 3 miles away from their school by the nearest available route should be entitled to free school transport. In Crawley Down, most children do live more than 3 miles away and meet this criteria, except when the Worth Way is added into the equation as an available route. As a parent, this infuriates me, particularly in the winter months when this route is frankly unsafe and potentially dangerous! PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION AND SHARE I

Vale of Glamorgan have recently opened a Consultation on the future of Penarth Libary. This can be found at the Vale of Glamorgan Council website and is open for on-line completion before 15/12/13. The underlying rationale, of course, seems to be a financial consideration rather than any considerations for improving the benefits of the Libary to the local community. The existence of the Libary undoubtedly also provides an economic benefit to the community as well as providing an essential resour
