This blog is mainly about the governance and future of policing and crime services. (Police & Crime Commissioners feature quite a lot.) But there are also posts about the wider justice system. And because I am town councillor and political activist, local & national issues are covered a little, as well.

Petition: to rename a room as the Paralympic Room

I have just posted an electronic petition on the Aylesbury Vale District Council website - you can access it here.

The aim of the petition is very simple: I want us to persuade the Council to rename one of its rooms in its new flag ship conference centre (part of the DC offices) to become the Paralympic Room. This is for the simple reason that the Paralympics started in Aylesbury Vale, a couple of miles down the road from the Council offices in Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

Currently the room is called the Olympic Room.

Obviously I have nothing against the Olympics! I just think the local council ought to be honouring our local heritage and being proud of the fact that Aylesbury Vale is home to the Paralympics, in the way that Mount Olympus in Greece is home to the Olympics.

What do you think?

If you agree with me, please sign the petition. Thank you!
