Reinstate our friendly and wonderful postman Jim Denslow

Our wonderful postman in Wiveliscombe Jim Denslow has been sacked from the Royal Mail. Jim left the handbrake off his van in jones forecourt. It rolled back a couple of metres not causing damage or harm to anything or anyone. The Royal Mail dismissed Jim on the grounds that he COULD have killed a third party.This in my opinion is a disgraceful act and I'm hoping that the community will back him and sign this petition. let's get our honest, loyal and caring postman back where he belongs!!

WBC to reconsider decision regarding RE3 Payments

We the undersigned residents of West Berkshire Council would like the Council to reverse their decision to not pay the RE3 subsidy payment which has meant we can now longer use the Smallmead Facilities. It is unfair to make residents on the outside edges of West Berkshire travel a further 30 miles to dispose of rubbish and we think this decision will see a steep increase in fly tipping.

Re-instate the Halstead Essex Street Lights

Due to an increase in thefts and public insecurity we are asking that the street lights in Halstead do not get switched off and remain on throughout the night. We feel this cover of darkness causes more harm than good and is only useful for the thieves to carry out their burglaries and robberies. Especially as there is no longer a police station and barely any police presence. Also it is not safe to walk around in the pitch black as you do not know who is around.
