1. Wrexham: Fly the flag for Wales / Baneri dros Gymru

Wrexham, along with other parts of Wales, celebrated our national football team's success in the Euro 2016 Championships. This is Welsh football's spiritual home and we want to build on this feel-good factor by having a permanent legacy for our town and our country.

We, the undersigned, call on Wrexham Council to work with local businesses and other institutions to erect Welsh flags in the town centre and other strategic sites to provide a visible, colourful and attractive display for visitors and local people alike.

2. GET THE WELSH FLAG ON THE EMOJI LISTS

Many other people and I think that Wales should have their flag represented in the flag options in the emoji's section on IOS and android devices! Why it's not there, is ridiculous!

(One of the best and beautiful countries in Europe should have their flag next to Mrs jones' selfie!)

3. Cefnogi Llanffest / Supporting Llanffest

Helpwch alleogi Llanffest i parhau a tyfu!

4. Stop S4C cutting Monday Night Sgorio

Sgorio is/was a program on S4C showing highlights from the Welsh Premier League (& more) which has been going for 26 years, for the sake of the National Football League of Wales (Welsh Premier League) I and others would like S4C to re-think cutting Sgorio from their Schedule.

5. Revoke Grass Cutting Decision

On the 26th February 2014, the Labour led administration of Wrexham County Borough Council, passed their Annual budget which included unprecedented cuts and which was passed in the face of massive public opposition. Included in this budget was a provision to reduce grass cutting from 6 to 8 cuts a year to just 2. The petitioners in this case the Wrexham Independent Group proposed an alternative budget which made provision for additional grass cutting and other services. This alternative budget was rejected by the Labour led administration on the night.

Despite it only being April, residents are 'up in arms' at the scruffy state of our county and some are threatening to withhold partial payment of council tax on the basis that the council are charging more but delivering less.

The untidy state of our County Borough also discourages potential investors and tourism alike from visiting the County Borough, in fact it is an economic disaster for Wrexham.

The petitioners therefore call on the Leader of Wrexham County Borough Council to rescind or revoke the budget line for grass cutting and replaced with alternatives proposed.

6. Demand for the Four Lion Rampant Flag to be the Logo on Car Licences in Wales

Baner Tywysogaeth Gwynedd oedd baner y Pedwar Llew yn wreiddiol ond yn dilyn cwymp y Dywysogaeth yn 1283, mabwysiadwyd y faner, yn wreiddiol, gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna gan Owain Glyndŵr. Roedd y ddau yn ddisgynyddion i dywysogion Gwynedd gyda'r hawl i fabwysiadu'r faner. Newidiwyd y llewod i fod yn rhai 'rampiant' gan Owain Llaw Goch ac yna defnyddiwyd y fersiwn yna o'r faner gan Owain Glyndŵr yn ystod ei Rhyfel fawr Dros Annibyniaeth.

O dan y faner yma bu Cymru'n annibynnol o tua 1403 hyd at tua 1410 a gan mai baner Harri Tudur oedd un y ddraig goch ar gefndir gwyrdd a gwyn, wedi ei hatgyfodi yn 1958, rydym, fel gwladgarwyr, ond yn cydnabod baner y Pedwar Llew Rampiant fel gwir faner genedlaethol Cymru a gan fod cynlluniau ar y gweill gan David Cameron a Llywodraeth Lloegr i osod Jac yr Undeb ar drwyddedau gyrru ym Mhrydain, rydym yn mynnu ein hawliau dinesig i gael Pedwar Llew Rampiant Tywysog Owain Glyndŵr ar drwyddedau gyrru yng Nghymru.

The Four Lions Rampant was, originally, the Four Lions Passive flag of The Royal House of Gwynedd in Snowdonia, North Wales. Following the fall of the Royal House of Gwynedd, it was adoped by the rightful heir, the great warrior Prince, Owain Glyndŵr during his war of Independence 1400 - 1421ish and the 'passive lions' were changed into 'rampant lions' to illustrate that the Cymru (Welsh) were up in arms.

Under this flag, Cymru (Wales) was independent between 1403 - 1410ish and, as the red dragon on a green and white background was the standard of Henry Tudor King of England and was only resurrected in 1958, we as Welsh patriots only recognise the Four Lions Rampant as the true flag of Cymru and as plans are being drawn up by David Cameron to have the Union flag or Crest to appear on "British" driving licences, we demand our civil right to have the Four Lion Rampant flag of the Cymric people's Prince, Prince Owain Glyndŵr on Cymric (Welsh) driving licences.

7. Support a Land Act For Wales

Following the complete occupation of Wales by the Anglo Normans in 1282 - 4 and again, in the 1420's following the War of Independence led by the great Welsh Prince Owain Glyndwr, great areas of Welsh land was either taken by the English Crown or 'given' as rewards to English barons for fighting for England in the Welsh Wars.

Ironically this was repeated by the Tudors in the 16th, who were of 'Welsh Descent', One such example being the Dukes of Somerset being given Mynydd y Gwair and much else throughout Southern Wales. This Mountain is now the centre of a major local issue and national campaign as the Somerset Trust intends to establish a Wind Mill Plantation on it.

Apart from the above, much of Welsh land was common land - which meant that the peasantry had the right to build a smallholding on it as well as hunt and fish but, increasingly over the centuries and up to the present, the Gentry and incoming 'New Conquistadores, such as Iron and Slate Masters began to seize this Common Land by means of Enclosure Acts. The issue of Anglican Church ownership was very much addressed in the Welsh Tithe Wars of 1886 - 88 by a National Land League but there is still much unfinished business to be taken care of.

Today, the aforementioned land is still occupied by the English Crown and the descendents of the English barons and, increasingly, by outside 'Utiliy Companies as in the case of the Vyrnwy Estate, It is being extensively plundered of its natural resources, such as water and timber, and is being savagely destroyed by gigantic windfarms. It is our Welsh herital land and we want it returned to the communities and people of Wales through this Wales Land Act.

8. Saving Owain Glyndŵr's 'Old Dolgellau Parliament House for the Nation

Plas Cwrt yn Dre, also known as Owain Glyndwr’s Old Parliament House was moved from Dolgellau to the Dolerw Park, Newtown in 1886.

The Quakers, who currently own it can no longer afford to maintain it and are selling it for £55,000. It is undoubtedly a national treasure and we think it should be purchased by the Welsh Government for the nation.

9. Get AVON to add WELSH as a LANGUAGE!

Diolch.

On the AVON connects website, of which I am a Member and also work for AVON, under the preferred spoken language bar in members profile there is no tab for WELSH. I have been in contact with AVON over the last week or so stating that Welsh is an official language in the UK and that there is a Welsh Language Act . However I have recently received an e-mail from there administration team stating that they can NOT help me further and will not add Welsh to the language tab.

Please join me in showing AVON that Welsh is an official language and get them to add it to there language bar.

Thank You.

10. A National Remembrance Museum for Wales

Welsh servicemen and women deserve recognition for their contribution to the world, and a National Remembrance Museum should pay tribute to them and should also be a creative way of highlighting an important aspect of Welsh life as well as highlighting the suffering experienced by civilians.

11. Mesh in the bloody timtable!
