    How Can I Help? 

    By volunteering even just a few hours of your time you can make a difference in Cambridge. You can help in many ways: from displaying a poster in your garden at election time, to stuffing envelopes or delivering leaflets, making phone calls, or going out knocking on doors around Cambridge.

    If you want to really make a positive impact on your area, speak to us about standing for election to the City Council.

    No Children's Centre Cuts.

    No Cuts to Children's Centres

    cambs_childrens_centres.pngWe the undersigned call upon Cambridgeshire County Council to halt its review of children’s centres.

    This review is being driven by a misguided council decision to cut £1 million from children’s centre budgets.

    There are wide gaps in the achievement of children in Cambridgeshire, and children’s centres have for many years provided support and guidance to families which can help narrow these gaps.  They provide good value early help services, which can prevent children from needing more expensive services later. They also provide crucial support to parents and other care-givers: knowing that a local children’s centre is there when it is needed can be a life-saver.

    The current proposals will lead to a significant reduction in support for families across Cambridgeshire.  They are being driven by pressure for budget cuts, and we call upon councillors to oppose them and to ensure parents of young children get the support they need when they need it.

    We all know that the south of the city suffers badly from congestion problems and nuisance parking in residential areas.

    We have spoken with many of you on the doorstep, and the feedback you’ve given us is that you want it fixed - and fast.

    That's why we've launched our campaign for a new rail station at Addenbrooke’s.

    But to achieve a new station we're going to need your support. Please back our campaign by signing this petition.

    The more support among residents, the more likely it is that we’ll get our much-needed station and properly tackle congestion here in Cambridge.
