Petition Tag - orchard
Two Duffield residents are seeking pledges of support from the wider Duffield community in order to transform an under utilised and under appreciated space in the centre of the village into a Community Orchard for the benefit of all Duffield residents.
The planned location of the Community Orchard is shown on the aerial photo and is space that was designated as a 'village green' as part of the Hawleys Colour Works housing development completed in 2002/03.
With our future generations and sustainability in mind, the orchard aims to encourage children and the wider community to forage for natural foods, fruit & nuts from a wide variety of trees/plants for free, with a view to facilitating a change in mindsets, creating opportunities to address obesity & healthy eating, and provide a better resource to connect our children and the wider community with our wider natural environment. It will also become an invaluable interactive educational resource for our 3 local schools, and will turn what is becoming an overgrown area into a better managed, more attractive, more productive space for the full Duffield community to enjoy.
The future of our community and village is your hands ....... so your help and support is appreciated
Please pledge your support and provide any comments by clicking on 'Sign the Petition' below and if you are willing to actually help us turn this vision into reality please send a seperate private message to email@example.com

The neighborhoods of Allston and Brighton in the city of Boston have a large population of skateboarders of all ages, with few safe and legal places to skateboard. The western corner of Ringer Park is an ideal location for a concrete skatepark.
By signing this petition you show your support for skateboarding in Allston, Boston. This interest will raise awareness with city and state officials, and increase the chances for permanent facility to be constructed in Ringer Park.
Sherwood Forest is the first of three phases in Project Rothburry that will provide the University of Texas at Tyler population access to free fruits and vegetables on campus. Sherwood Forest will be a fruit tree and berry orchard that will offer students, faculty, and staff free fruits during harvest and aesthetic beauty year round.
Sherwood Forest will produce five to seven types of fruit bearing trees and an assortment of berries. The potential area will be able to hold 30 to 50 trees, along with a pathway going diagonally across the orchard.
Each of the trees will provide students with free fruit and will enhance the aesthetic appeal of our already beautiful campus. With the success of the project, UT Tyler will make a notable mark on the academic community, as it would be the first school in the University of Texas System to host such a project. SIFE will provide all funding for this project, and there will be no funds taken from the University. SIFE will also maintain Sherwood Forest year round.
After careful research we have deduced that the best location for this project is on the corner of Campus Dr. and Patriot Dr. This petition will show the UT Tyler administration that the University community supports Sherwood Forest.

I am looking for people to give me their signature in support of my campaign to stop the closure of 'Orchard House'
Orchard House is a long term care facility for those suffering from the many dementia diseases that are on the increase today. Plans are to close it and move the current terminal residents to another care home twenty miles away.
This is lunacy as the number of case of dementia are on the increase our health authority are planning to cut the number of beds for our terminally ill Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts and Uncles etc.
Dementia sufferers all have one thing in common - they will all need specialist full time care eventually. Why cut beds and move our loved ones away from near their relatives.
This closure will see my Husband Ken Pearson moved to another home where local public transport is expensive and infrequent. I, like many others who I have met whilst visiting the Orchard House, need to be able to see my husband daily and more importantly he needs to see me.
Orchard House is a rare place with caring staff and friendly community feel. Please help me stop it from closing and sign this petition.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
