SA Health Minister, John Hill, on October 9th 2012 made a comment at the opening of a rehabilitation service at the QEH that the future of the Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre needed to be looked at.
Later in conversation with Mr Hill, told the City North Messenger "there was always a question about what we do with the Hampstead". "It would make sense to combine the resources of the Hampstead and St Margaret's with an updated QEH," he said.
Mr Hill said it was too early to know what would happen to the Hampstead centre if services were moved to Woodville South.
"What this is about is a conversation," Mr Hill said. "People who are concerned need to become part of the conversation."
We are having that conversation and we wish for the Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre to remain where it is.
The decision to close the road and pedestrian access to Llay Health Centre from the southern side of the village was taken without full community consultation.
Concerns raised by the community council about access to the health centre were not passed on to the planning authority and therefore the decision was passed without a full understanding of the facts.
WHAT IS CONTINUITY OF CARE??
- during pregnancy (antenatal care)
- during labour and birth (intrapartum care)
- after birth of your baby (postnatal care)
Seeing the same caregiver or small group of caregivers throughout pregnancy, labour and birth and afterwards is called continuity of care.
WHY PROVIDE CONTINUITY OF MIDWIFERY CARE?
Midwifery continuity models are popular with women, provide improved birth and satisfaction outcomes, are cost-effective and are common overseas. For these reasons Australian governments are committed to increasing women's access to these models as outlined in the National Maternity Services Plan and actioned by the Queensland Government with the commitment to provide 10% of public birth care in these models. Continuity models also have advantages in the development and retention of a skilled workforce which is responsive to day-to-day demand.
MIDWIFERY CONTINUITY MODELS
These models provide each woman with care from a known midwife/s, usually to 6 weeks postpartum. To meet the needs of women and be sustainable for midwives, continuity models are innovative and flexible in relation to place of care in widwives' working arrangements. Women with any level of complexity of care, and midwives consult and refer to guidelines and clinical need.
Delbrook Pottery Studio has been operating in the North Shore for over 30years. Over this time it has provided the much needed space for North Vancouverites to create and express themselves using clay in a community focused and inexpensive way.
The studio offers drop-in and structured classes every day of the week, including studio memberships. Programs run for families, parent and child (3-5yrs), kids (6-12yrs), adults and seniors.
Within the next few years plans are underway to create a new Recreation Centre to consolidate William Griffin and Delbrook Rec Centers. At the moment there is great concern that the new building plans do not include space for a pottery studio.
When Delbrook Rec Centre is demolished, we will lose one of only two pottery studios run by the North Vancouver Rec Commission. Parkgate studio will be unable to accommodate the resulting volume and demand once this occurs.
At a time when the Government has recognized that Art is as important as fitness to the community by implementing a tax credit for children’s art programs, should we not in North Vancouver also recognize this, and preserve and expand already run clay programs for generations to come?
5. Save Fulford
The former Penistone Grammar School buildings Fulford, Weirfield and the stables and the site they are situated on are been sold for possible residential development, which would lead to the demolition of these buildings.
These buildings are an integral part of Penistone's social history and must be retained for future generations. Other alternatives for use and conversion need to be fully exhausted before this can be allowed to happen.
Soft Play Barn
Please Sign Our Petition!
Earlier this year we were refused permission to build a new soft play barn at Cobbs.
This was despite a huge effort (and cost) in preparation of the application and indeed full support from the parish council. Reasons for refusal were, in our opinion vague at best, but having addressed them best we can we are having another go!
This facility will enable us to further still provide a safe and educational learning environment for children throughout the year as well as giving us some additional and much needed space to create a relaxed environment for parents and children.
It is our intention to provide food and drink but those of you used to the usual “pizza and chips” offer at existing “soft play centres” need not worry—our focus will continue to be on wholesome grub!
Please support us by signing this petition so that, should we encounter more issues with our application, we can further demonstrate support for a facility such as this!
Cobbs Farm Shop & Kitchen
Daventry Phoenix Youth Centre is at danger of losing the vast majority of its youth services and it’s only Youth and Development Worker due to funding cuts.
We need your help to show the Phoenix Centre Committee and the Daventry Town and District Councils that these cuts will be devastating to the Phoenix Centre and the Youth Team within it.
We ask that you sign this petition and ask others to do the same, to prevent losing the crucial services the Daventry Phoenix Youth Centre provides to the youth of Northamptonshire.
Your postcode will be used for statistics by the petition team, and not shared with anybody else.
Swansea Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre is responsible for coordinating search and rescue at sea and on the cliffs and coastline. The area covered by Swansea includes the whole of the Bristol Channel, Welsh and English coastlines.
Within the area of responsibility activity is high with numerous marinas, commercial ports, busy beaches, a large resident population and a large amount of visitors. The UK Government has announced that Swansea MRCC is now earmarked for closure.
Little or no regard has been given to public safety and this decision is based on the number of civil servants already employed in Swansea. Not a sound basis to close one of the busiest rescue centres in the UK, it must not happen.
In 2007 Cllr Andrew Eade Leader of T&W Council promised the residents of Brookside a new community centre. This promise was then made again in the by-election in 2008 by Cllr John Dixon and supported by Cllr Andrew Eade.
Since 2007, the only elected member who has been vocal on this topic was Cllr George Ashcroft.
Cllr Eric Carter constantly said "Brookside must be patient".
Cllr Andrew Eade later diverted £2 million of funds away from Brookside to use on another Community.
Cllr Andrew Eade and the Conservative Party have failed to keep their promise to the residents of Brookside, failed to build a New Community Centre which formed an integral part of two election campaigns, then diverted £2 million of funds away from the residents.
We nw call upon Cllr Andrew Eade and the Conservative Party to keep their promises to the residents of Brookside and tell the residents.
1. When will they get their New Centre
2.Where will the money come from
3.Start date of building
4.Finish date of building
5.Consult with the residents of Brookside
7.Give full detailed plans
The 2011 City budget proposes to add adult user fees at Jimmie Simpson. This means that unless you qualify for the city’s “Welcome Policy” that Adult Programs at Jimmie Simpson will cost between $48 and $75 for a 9 week session.
If we don't do anything about it now, the City can continue doing this for all the other free community centers that some of us need.
This is petition of Tamworth residents, local businesses & visitors to get all the town centre businesses to open for trading on Sundays. This will be presented to the local chamber of commerce.
Tamworth Borough Council operate many public events to draw in town centre visitors and parking is free on Sundays. However to help save the town centre shops must open on sundays.
PROPOSALS have been put forward to close three Flintshire leisure centres to the public.
If an action plan by council chiefs is approved the sports centre at Connah’s Quay High School, at Castell Alun in Hope and at St David’s High School in Saltney will close to the public. First the Deeside Bonfire, Now the leisure centres.
Please sign our petition and help us reach our goal of securing a permanent home for Bray Cancer Support Centre.
We urgently need to secure funding for a new home as we are finding it increasingly difficult to cater for the 5,500 people who use our centre on an annual basis.
WHO ARE WE?
The Bray Cancer Support Centre is a registered charity based in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland (number 12589). We were the first and are now the largest community based cancer support centre in Ireland.
In 2009, the Centre provided over 13,800 free client support services to people throughout the Bray, Wicklow & South Dublin areas, availing of emotional support, practical help, counselling, complimentary therapies as well as other classes. Bereavement counselling and support groups are also an integrated part of our centres services.
We are to the forefront in providing cancer support services and facilities free of charge to people affected by cancer in the greater Bray, Wicklow, South Dublin and Leinster areas.
According to the Evening Chronicle on 25 March 2010 (http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/north-east-news/todays-evening-chronicle/2010/03/25/staff-hopping-mad-at-council-plot-to-kill-rabbits-72703-26108140/), Newcastle City Council intend on killing the rabbits that currently populate the land around the Civic Centre, as they are "causing damage to the soil and plants on the grassy area next to St Thomas’ Church".
James Bulger was just 2 years old when out shopping with his mummy he toddled off as all children do for just one minute.Two ten year old boys who had been playing truant were waiting in the shopping centre for a little victim. They took James off by the hand and was caught on CCTV. When his mother had realised James was gone they were already on there way out of the strand shopping centre leading little James by the hand.Along with many people who saw James that day over the time it took them to walk the little toddler two miles.They stopped now and again to kick him or punch him to stop him from crying for his mummy.
After they found a disused railway line which they must have been well aware existed were no one would see them.James was undressed, paint put into his eyes trousers and bottom clothing removed sexually assaulted with batteries. And then had large stones and bricks thrown at his head. When the toddler didn't die they hit him over and over with a cast Iron bar.And then laid him on the railway line so evil to make it look like an accident. They even weighed down the little boy with bricks on the track.James was found two days later by a young teenager.His small undressed body was cut in half.
His two killers aged ten at the time have since been released. Jame's family has been let down by the justice system so much.Now one of Jame's killers has broken one release rule by doing another crime!should he have been out in the first place?what they did was planned and they knew exactly that the little boy should die.Do you want this scum on a street near your child or grand son? put them back away now please help with this petition.
The Tydeman centre had a garden reserved for SEN children which has been removed following a review of the main school's inclusion policy. This has been done without consultation with the client base at the Tydeman centre.
It is felt that the students of this centre are too vulnerable to be left with no refuge from the main school at breaktimes.
Six months ago Emma Cannings started what is now a successful and popular skin care therapy business at the Stamford Garden Centre. Old wooden sheds were pulled down and a new wooden building put up in its place. The Garden Centre now has a cafe, farm shop, gift shop, butchers, florists and vets. The salon is a welcome addition and is a significant improvement on the old sheds.
The parking at the garden centre means that the salon is popular since the centre of Stamford is become increasingly difficult to access by car during the day as more and more residential estates are developed on the outskirts of the town. A large number of people are also able to walk to the garden centre. The salon has also been made fully accessible for the disabled.
The planning application (originally misplaced and un-actioned by the council) had no objections from any members of the public or the local parish council. However, in a shock decision, they have recommended that the building be pulled down. Their reasons seem confusing and inconsistent at best. The large new offices recently built on the outskirts of Uppingham and developments at the Ashwell garden centre make the decision even more confusing.
Their decision will put six people out of work, plunge the owners into financial crisis and damage the other businesses at the garden centre who benefit from the cross trading opportunities. It seems no wonder that the country is one of the last in Europe to pull itself out of economic difficulties if this is how the government treats its entrepreneurs. Rather than spending time promoting and marketing the business we are having to invest all our time into fighting our own local government who want us to spend money tearing down a building that is offending no one (other than local planners and councilors) and benefiting many.
As someone who has lived in Rutland their whole life I feel very passionately about protecting the countryside. Of course we must have strong regulations against buildings that could damage our beautiful county. However, this business was not built on an area of outstanding beauty. It is a one storey, attractive wooden building that was constructed on the site of some older wooden buildings of the same size. It has significantly enhanced the garden centre for the other businesses and for the people that use it.
At no point did we ever envisage that the greatest threat to the business, at a time when we are struggling to get this country out of a bad recession, would come from our own government.
Please help us overturn this decision and show Rutland County Council that, whilst we appreciate their desire to protect our beautiful county, they have got it badly wrong this time.
Building a thriving secondary school for our thriving community.
A new secondary school for Bedford Town:
o do you want your 11 year old to be able to walk or cycle to school?
o do you want your child to be able to move through school with their friends?
o do you your child to have easy access to after school activities?
o do you want improved local facilities that the whole community can use?
Do you want a secondary school that’s at the heart of our local community?
Bedford Borough Council’s Proposal for the future organisation of schools in Bedford Borough does not include a Secondary school for the centre of Bedford Town – we think it should!
There are many playgrounds and parks in Creston for primary school-aged children - several within walking distance of every house. There is NOTHING for secondary school-aged children, except ONE small useless skate park.
THIS IS UNFAIR. Then the Councils wonder why youth hang around the streets with nothing to do. Teenagers need exercise and facilities too.
Skateboarding is a popular sport - if kids have no skate parks, they will still skate - on the streets in churches, schools. People tell them off, but they have no alternative!
Where does all the money from the City of Creston go? New developments such as the recreation center add-on. No good to us.
PLEASE - we would like a skate park for teenagers in Creston! (Or at least rebuild the small skate park by the recreation center).
On an extra note; skate parks can accommodate many other sports too such as BMXing and rollerblading.
A recent decision by Birmingham City Council to bulldoze the iconic Muhammad Ali Centre in Icknield Street (only yards from the Hockley Flyover) has sparked outrage among the black community who have been trying for years to have the centre re-opened.
Once a cultural focal point and visited by Ali himself three times, it is now a burnt out shell, and haven for drug misuse. A local group (ICDF) lead by activist Gerald Nembhard has been given only 8 weeks (until June 5th) to present a viable business model to save the building, and raise enough capital to prevent its demolition.
Please contact Gerald Nembhard at the Infinity group for more info. InfinityCDF@hotmail.co.uk
Due to the need for urgent environmental action. We have occupied an island in The Thames.
In these times of rising tides and melting ice shelves, we thought we should get a bit closer to studying the watery world and its rise.
Ravens Ait Island is a unique wedding and conference centre with halls, many rooms, workshop spaces, kitchens and gardens. On an enchanting island in The Thames near Kingston, (opposite Hampton Court). Which we are transforming into an Eco Conference Centre.
Come visit, help, book in to run a skill sharing workshop and put it on the timetable. Network it. There will be an ongoing discussion here “how do we find SOLUTIONS to the environmentally critical situation we face?”
At a meeting of the Senate on February 4th 2009 at the University of Leeds, the decision to disband the Centre for Joint Honours was put to final vote and passed.
If you value the pastoral, academic, and other general support that the CJH offers you at university, show your support for your joint honours team on this group.
TESCO are proposing to open a giant 130,000 ft2, 24 Hour Tesco Extra store at Wallneuk Industrial Estate on Renfrew Road.
The development will be outside the town centre.
The store will be bigger than all other supermarkets in Paisley combined.
The site will cater for over 700 car parking spaces
As a Tesco Extra, it is set to be far bigger than an ordinary food retail outlet. It will turn over hundreds of thousands of pounds per week by selling close to a hundred thousand different goods, not just groceries, but clothing, electrical goods, entertainment goods and many other household items.
Stop Tesco Owning Paisley says that:
This development should be opposed on several grounds, some generally against supermarket development and some specific to the proposals for Paisley.
The Sydney Southwest Area Health Service is planning to cut crucial services from their Early Childhood Centre Program.
One of the main changes includes the ceasing of the Tuesday morning drop-in service in the Balmain Early Childhood Centre (and no doubt other centres as well). This change will come into effect in mid-December and this decision was implemented without any consultation with the community at large.
The drop-in service has provided regular and accessible help to many parents in an informal setting and has also provided an important supportive forum for many parents to meet other parents.
It is essential for many parents to help care for their young children because babies needs are often immediate and cannot wait until planned appointments which are only available weeks in advance.
Many parents in Balmain are from interstate, overseas or country areas and are separated from their support networks. They rely heavily on formal services for support.
More changes - such as ceasing information forums like 'Introducing Solids' - are planned and something needs to be done to show the SSWAHS that these services are vital for the health and well being of our babies and parents and to ensure that no more services are taken away.
Please help us protect the mental and physical health of our babies and parents in Balmain and other suburbs within the Sydney South West Area and sign this petition to have our Early Childhood Services re-instated and to ensure that future changes to the Early Childhood Program be thoroughly debated by the community.

This is a petition to OBJECT to the PROPOSED CHILD CARE CENTRE Development Application 2008/DA-00182, 84 Villiers Avenue MORTDALE.
* Villiers Avenue is clearly a residential street with no commercial buidlings or businesses.
* The style of the proposed commercial building will be out of character with the entire streetscape and will detract from the residential atmosphere.
* A business such as a Childcare Centre will dramatically increase the road traffic and associated dangers of increased road traffic on this normally quiet street.
* There is already one (1) Childcare Centre operating in the adjoining street - MORTS ROAD as little as approx 100 Metres away from the proposed site.
* Childcare Centres are notorious for the amount of noise generated by 40 Children at play, especially in the outdoor play areas.
* There are a number of elderly or retired persons residing at premises surrounding the proposed site of whom will be directly affected by ongoing noise pollution which will be taken out of their control.
* The proposed site borders directly onto seven (7) separate dwellings. These seven dwellings will all be directly and severely affected by the noise. (the wider community ie. those living opposite the site will also be severely affected)
* These seven dwellings will all be severely disadvantaged by loss of property value ( nobody wants to live next to a childcare centre)
Considering Mortdale has so much other land already zoned for commercial use in areas that are historically commercial bothin design and appearance, it seems scandalous that a commercial venture could be proposed in an area that is purely residential. What makes this proposal even more insidious is that it will directly and severely affect the welfare and financial state of the seven families in the dwellings that directly border the proposed site.
YOU WOULD BE HARD-PRESSED TO FIND ANY OTHER SITE THAT WOULD HAVE SUCH AN ADVERSE AFFECT ON SO MANY PEOPLE.
IF YOU FEEL AS STRONGLY OPPOSED TO THIS DEVELOPMENT AS WE DO PLEASE SIGN THE ABOVE PETITION AND LODGE AN OBJECTION TO THE COUNCIL.
The City of Surrey took up the GO FOR 20 CHALLENGE in August 2005 to encourage residents to increase their physical activity.
Fraser Heights Community Center was built without a much needed fitness centre that should have included a variety of cardio equipment- treadmills, elliptical trainers, bikes, stairclimbers, rowing machines as well as a free weight area.
SAVE BATH’S GREEN CORRIDOR!
£54 million of government money may be awarded to the City of Bath for a new transport plan. B&N.E.S intend to invest a massive chunk of this public money on a 'Bus Rapid Transit System' (BRT), which will run from an extended Newbridge Park and Ride before adjoining onto a former railway line (a mile long stretch of green land), between Brassmill Lane and Windsor Bridge Rd.
This is part of a wider proposal to join Newbridge Park & Ride in the west of Bath, to a Park and Ride at Bathampton Meadows in the east, via the city centre.
The council estimates that the new route will benefit customers by saving them an average of two minutes on a trip from Newbridge to the City Centre, in a diesel, bendy bus.
The segregated route will bypass the Upper and Lower Bristol Road in the west, both of which are both relatively un-congested. The buses will then travel on existing roads in the city centre and the east, where congestion is a real problem.
Why Oppose The BRT Route?
Unproven benefits and uncertain outcomes:
The claim that the BRT will reduce congestion is very debatable. It is basically a decentralised car park scheme which will encourage people to drive rather than use public transport. Car users will be attracted to the P&R which is in a residential area on the outskirts of Bath. The scheme will displace some city centre traffic, but not enough to make a real long term difference.
The BRT will add to congestion on Park and Ride access routes and at congestion "hotspots", such as Windsor Bridge road and London Road.
Through traffic and “school run” traffic will not be reduced by the BRT
Unrealistic costs and high financial risk:
Costs will definitely rise far above the over optimistic estimates put forward.
Complicated road junctions, bridges, re-engineering of major sewers and contested compulsory purchase orders all add up to serious risk which has not been properly assessed. Major works, new to the plan, have not been accounted for within the budget.
Council tax will be raised and residents of Bath will end up footing the bill when the costs exceed the agreed national funding.
Inadequate consideration of negative impacts:
The scheme will have significant negative impacts which have not been properly considered.
An established green lane, habitat to diverse wildlife and mature trees will be destroyed. Hundreds of households will suffer air, noise and light pollution, vibration and loss of privacy. Businesses will be demolished and forced out and private gardens will be taken by force. Local people will lose a significant green space, currently used by many for recreation. The new road will form a hard physical barrier between communities and will be a magnet for anti social behavior at night. Large, diesel bendy buses will affect the character of narrow city centre streets and harm trade.
A 21st century vision should aim for zero on street emissions and put people first.
The people of Bath are being let down by the council’s lack of vision.
Join us in a peaceful protest, as we deliver our petition to the council at The Guildhall, Bath, 6.30, 20th November.
Please choose to save the green corridor and support local people by signing our petition!
If you would like more information or to help please contact us, leave a comment and fill in the email field. Your email will remain private.
Squash courts regularly used; no consultation with leisure centre users on closure.
Block bookings should be offered which would guarantee revenue to the leisure centre for these facilities.
