  • Wim library stall
    Article: Feb 4, 2014

    Campaigners can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

    On 29 January 2014, an independent planning inspector gave the all clear for Wimbledon Library, agreeing to remove it from the Sites and Policies Plan.

    This means that no consultation will now take place on the future of the library.

    Shas Sheehan welcomed the news, saying, "Finally, doubt about the future of our library has been put to bed. It was essential that the site was taken out of the council's planning document."

    We, the undersigned, call on the Vatican to intervene to protect the ethos of St Anthony's hospital and the unique relationship with St Raphael's hospice, which since 1987 has served 380,000 people in both the boroughs of Merton and Sutton. We encourage the Daughters of the Cross to drop plans to sell St Anthony's, without which the hospice's future would be uncertain, and instead agree the establishment of a new Catholic charity to make safe the long term future of both the hospice and the hospital.

    Petition: Nov 12, 2013

    Shas Sheehan, who has an academic background in Environmental Technology, welcomed warmly Nick Clegg's important speech to the Green Alliance this morning, making the case that what seemed like a cross-party consensus on the issue of climate change has now crumbled, leaving the Liberal Democrats as the only major party still committed to preventing the catastrophic warming of the planet.

    Article: Oct 16, 2013

    Shas Sheehan has condemned Merton Council's decision to reject 20mph limit on residential roads in Merton. She has challenged the council to explain their decision in the light of figures released by The Department for Transport that show that the number of people reported killed or seriously injured in Merton has risen by 44% between 2011 and 2012 . http://www.travelindependent.org.uk/area_108.html

    Free school meals for infants in England

    From September 2014 all infant school pupils, including 7,495 in Merton, will benefit from a free hot and healthy meal at lunchtime.

    Last week Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced that every child in infant school in England will receive a free school lunch.

    Statement by Simon Hughes MP - and Shas wholly endorses:

    "On Sunday at the Liberal Democrat conference the party debated our latest policy paper on the environment and the economy. The paper included a range of cutting-edge and innovative environmental policies designed to kick-start green growth and green job creation. In the paper was a section on nuclear power and whether we should maintain our existing policy of not creating a new generation of nuclear power stations; or whether we should consider developing new power stations subject to the safe removal of nuclear waste and there being no public subsidy. The party voted for the second of these. I profoundly disagree with the use of nuclear power as part of our energy mix - and have done all my life. Like many Liberal Democrats and others my opposition to nuclear power will continue. And my determination that not a penny of public money will be used to finance new UK nuclear power stations is now stronger than ever. I believe we must focus our attention on new green technologies that can help save our planet and provide new jobs for people in my constituency and around the country."
