Weather Ready Campaign

Dear Residents,

We have received the following information which I hope is useful:

 

WeatherReady Winter Campaign by the Met Office

WeatherReady is a year round campaign run by the Met Office, in partnership with the Cabinet Office, to help individuals prepare for, and cope with, severe weather. The winter campaign encourages individuals, families and communities to think about winter preparations they can make to help them stay warm, healthy and safe at this time of year.

Details on the WeatherReady campaign including weather related advice covering the themes of health, travel and property can be accessed via the following link: www.metoffice.gov.uk/weatherready.

The Priority Services Register

The Priority Services Register is a free service provided by the company and is eligible for anyone who is of pensionable age, disabled, has children under 5 years old or relies on medical equipment.

As part of the service, customers are kept informed as much as possible of power cuts affecting their home and are given special help, if needed, through the British Red Cross.
The Priority Services Register offers peace of mind for vulnerable customers and their families and we do our very best to ensure that their needs are met at all times.

“Be Winter Ready” Campaign by Western Power Distribution

The electricity and gas networks have come together again to help members of the public prepare in case they have a power cut or gas emergency this winter through its annual ‘Be Winter Ready’ campaign, which is launching on 2nd December.

While electricity supplies are very reliable, bad winter weather can cause damage and disruption. As the nights get colder and darker, the chance of experiencing severe weather becomes more likely. Storms, floods and other extreme conditions can cause damage to the electricity network and disrupt energy supplies.

To Be Winter Ready, we’re urging the public to:

• Know your free emergency numbers – in a power cut call 105 or, for a gas emergency, dial 0800 111999.
• Prepare your home – keep a torch handy and get your appliances serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Vulnerable households can also get extra support by signing up to the Priority Services Register.
• Keep your eyes open – keep an eye on the weather forecast and, if you have a power cut or a gas emergency, check on your neighbours.

We have created a digital toolkit of materials to communicate this information, including social media posts, a poster and leaflet: www.energynetworks.org/news/public-information/be-winter-ready-toolkit.html

REMEMBER The Priority Services Register

The Priority Services Register is a free service provided by the company and is eligible for anyone who is of pensionable age, disabled, has children under 5 years old or relies on medical equipment.

As part of the service, customers are kept informed as much as possible of power cuts affecting their home and are given special help, if needed, through the British Red Cross.
The Priority Services Register offers peace of mind for vulnerable customers and their families and we do our very best to ensure that their needs are met at all times.

Yellow Fog – Weather warning for 19.11.2019

Dear Residents

Staffordshire County Council have advised of the following:

The Met Office have issued a rather unusual yellow warning for fog across the whole of the county for the beginning of Tuesday.

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/warnings-and-advice/accessible-uk-warnings

The warning is in place from 4am until about 11am.

Specifically, there will be some dense and freezing fog patches during the morning, which is highly likely to lead to some travel disruption.

Warnings for fog are issued when visibility is due to drop below 200 metres – tomorrow we can expect visibility to be reduced to about 100 metres or less in places.

As travelling in fog can be dangerous, the Met Office website has some handy guidance on how to drive safely.

Staffordshire Police – new Single Online Home website

Dear Residents,

Staffordshire Police have provided the following information to the Parish Council:

On Wednesday 14 August Staffordshire Police will replace its current website with Single Online Home (SOH).

SOH is a new interactive website where members of the public can report non-urgent crime, submit complaints or praise, make requests under the freedom of information act, view local crime statistics and seek advice on a range of crime types and crime prevention methods.

Along with Single Online Home, we also have the ability to allow the communities of Staffordshire to report crime via social media. Our Digital 101 team takes reports of non-urgent crime, seven days a week, 7am – midnight on Facebook and Twitter.

Your Staffordshire Card is ending 31.08.2019

Staffordshire County Council have sent the following information to the Parish Council:

 

Dear All

You will be aware the “Your Staffordshire Card” scheme for young people is ending on 31 August 2019 and will no longer be accepted for discounted travel on buses following this date.
Like many county councils we face unprecedented financial challenges and made the decision to no longer fund the administration of the scheme as the number of bus journeys has now fallen by 80 per cent since its peak in 2014/15.

This is in part due to the fact that some operators have introduced their own discounted fares and passes. We are encouraging people to check out the best deals with their local bus operator. National Express for example has recently introduced a pass which will be more affordable than the Your Staffordshire Card if used on a regular basis.

More information about the changes can be found on the council’s website.

Rural Development Fund – funding available

The Community Council of Staffordshire has asked the Parish Council to make residents and local groups aware of the following:

The Rural Development Fund awards small grants of up to £1000 to small rural community groups across Staffordshire and Stoke, where they have a specific need.

The main beneficiaries of this fund are small community and voluntary groups in Staffordshire and Stoke, where their income is less than £30,000 per annum. The groups must be based or working in Staffordshire or Stoke and cannot be operating outside of the county. The aims of the project should be working towards the encouragement and promotion of developing rural community life.

Panel meetings are held to determine whether applicants should receive funding and if so how much. Time sensitive applications may be considered outside of the usual panel dates or in the case of an emergency, but this is at the discretion of the donor advisers of the fund. You are advised to call Support Staffordshire first to see whether your application would meet this need.

Update on Free Bus Passes

Bus Services – Message from Cllr Helen Fisher, Staffordshire County Council

Dear Residents,

I wanted to take the opportunity to remind you that changes to free travel (the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme) for older people who hold bus passes came into force from Monday, 1st July.

As you are aware, with less money to go around and rising costs of care to meet, we have had to look carefully at which non-statutory areas we can continue to fund, and these changes are in line with the national scheme.

The good news is that passengers will still be able to use their passes to travel for free between 9.30 a.m. and 11.00 p.m. and at any time at the weekend or on Bank Holidays and the vast majority already choose to do this.

If residents do want to travel at peak morning times, we are advising them to check with their local bus operator for the best prices and options for their journeys. Some operators are offering travel for a child’s fare or even for just one pound. However, this does vary so we are asking people to check before they travel.

After acting on feedback from the public, passholders who are disabled and are under retirement age will not be affected by the changes and can continue to travel for free before 9.30 a.m. This is because this smaller number of passholders generally need to travel at this time to get to education or employment.

The changes have been well publicised onboard buses, but I would ask that you share this information with anyone who you think may be affected. You can find out more information about bus passes please visit the Staffordshire County Council website, see link below

Recruitment of Independent volunteer Advisors to Staffordshire Police

The Parish Council has just received this request from Staffordshire Police, please use the contact details below if you are interested.

Independent Advisory Groups (IAGs) have been used by forces for over a decade. It is a volunteer role and the purpose of an IAG is to help us to build insight into the needs, wants and assets of the groups who are under-represented in our normal decision making processes. We use this insight to shape our service for the benefit of communities and engender trust and confidence. IAGs enable us to create a genuine partnership with communities and they are independent only in relation to their views.

We are continuing to challenge ourselves and provide an even better, more informed service to communities and thus we are recruiting for a new wave of Independent Advisory Group (IAG) members. The force is recruiting up to 12 residents of Staffordshire, aged 16 and above. These volunteers will provide the force with a critical appraisal of force policies and procedures, the police support to communities following a critical incident and offer an insight into the wants and needs of communities across the entire county. In effect because they come with different insights and a different perspective they are able to tell us what we may have missed and challenge thinking.

I would be grateful if you could share this with local groups and passionate individuals that could articulate the views of their community. There are fantastic opportunities to make a real difference and to enhance the experience and employability of anyone involved. Our only requirements are that they are 16 and over and that they are not already working or volunteering in the police or court system.

Anyone interested should contact volunteers@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk

Thank you in advance for your support, working together we can hopefully give every community in Staffordshire the chance to have their voice heard.

Best regards
Jenny Sims
Assistant Chief Constable

The Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals Trust have installed Canal Mileposts installed within Parish

Dear Residents,

The Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals Trust (CUCT) has been running a project over the past 3 years to put back some canal history and reinstate mileposts along the line of the old Uttoxeter canal to identify its route and to form the basis for “milepost” walks from Uttoxeter to Oakamoor initially and Froghall eventually. The first part of the project saw mileposts reinstated between Oakamoor and Denstone in 2016. The current part of the project is reinstating the six remaining mileposts from Rocester to Uttoxeter.

A brief background history to the canal is that it opened in 1811 and ran for 13 miles from Froghall Wharf down to a terminus in Uttoxeter via the Churnet valley. The canal was short lived and closed in 1849 when it was superseded by the North Staffordshire railway with much of it being lost below the railway.

The route of the canal was that from its terminus in the wharf area of Uttoxeter it headed West to near the Parks pub following the 300 foot contour where it then looped back to Spath crossing the River Tean on a metal viaduct. Some of the canal bed can be seen in Spath, curving behind the houses to the West of the Stramshall Road. It then went under a bridge, carrying the Stramshall road, by Bridge Barn/Farm and carried on to Rocester via Combridge still along the 300 foot contour thus eliminating the need for any locks. From Rocester, where its line is through the middle of the JCB factory, it went on to Denstone, Alton, Oakamoor finally joining the Caldon canal at Froghall Wharf.

Good progress has been made on the milepost reinstatement and four of the six have been reinstated so far as follows: in the traffic island at Park Place, Uttoxeter; on the opposite side of the A50 from The Parks pub close to where the canal crossed the River Tean; at Bridge Barn, Spath and finally at Limecrofts Farm between Stramshall and Combridge. The remaining two mileposts to be reinstated were kindly sponsored by JCB and these are to be installed by the end of April.
The final phase of the project will be to produce a set of “milepost walk” notes highlighting points of interest along the way and to produce interpretation boards as appropriate.

The Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals Trust would like to thank those people who have supported our project in many different ways and made it possible.

The Caldon and Uttoxeter Canals Trust always welcomes new members particularly anybody who would like to help us bring the canal back to life by participating in our monthly volunteer work parties. We would also like to hear from anybody who has a photo of the Tean viaduct as yet we haven’t been able to find one of this interesting feature.

For further information and to contact the Trust, visit www.cuct.org.uk

The 2019 event takes place on Sunday 9 June.

Groups of volunteers are also needed to help out at feeding stations and hand out lap bands to athletes on the running course.

Volunteers will be joining a team of over 500, including stewards, medical staff and technical officials, and have the chance to get great experience of working behind the scenes of a world-renowned event.

Last year, the competition raised hundreds of thousands for charity.

Sue Ball, who has previously volunteered at the competition in Staffordshire, said: “Volunteering at Ironman was a wonderful experience. It was great to be part of one of the UK’s most exciting sporting challenges. What I remember most about the day, apart from those amazing athletes, was just how many athletes thanked me for giving up my time and volunteering to help at the event – a truly rewarding experience.”

NOTICE is hereby given that the Staffordshire County Council on 7 May 2019 made an Order the effect of which will be to prohibit any vehicle from proceeding in that length of Bennetts Lane / Loxley Lane in Bramshall in so much as passes by and is in the vicinity of the level crossing for a distance of 20 metres either side unless the vehicle is being used in connection with the works. Access to local properties will be available.

Bramshall Speed Watch – update information and Volunteer appeal

The Speed Watch Team in Bramshall have just celebrate their second anniversary of existence and have provided the Parish Council with the information below:

“As we reach our second anniversary of the commencement of Speedwatch activities in the Village of Bramshall (started on 23.03.2017) the small team of volunteers agree that there has been a noticeable improvement in the standard of driving by most road users in the Village.
There remain just a few individuals who continue to threaten the safety of our roads by driving too fast but hopefully, in time, the roads will become a safer environment for everyone.

In these past two years the volunteers have noted a reduction in the number of speeding offences, this is obvious from the information collected from the regular road speed monitoring sessions.

One change that has happened recently was the fitting of the new permanent warning signs at four sites on the fringes of the village: Stone Road (2), Bennetts Lane (1) and Leigh Lane (1), to alert drivers they are entering a “community speedwatch area”. These metal signs replace the old, plastic, temporary ones that were used hitherto. Monitoring of the various sites will, it is hoped, further continue to reduce the level of speeding offences.

As mentioned, Speedwatch, in the village is undertaken by a small group of volunteers who make themselves available for a couple of hours each month. It is sometimes not possible to find enough volunteers and we are therefore seeking a few more individuals to join the team. So why not join us?

If you are interested in becoming a “Community Speed watcher” in Bramshall, please contact Michelle Shaker, the Community Engagement Co-ordinator at Police HQ in Stafford on 01785 232702, who will be pleased to discuss how to join the team.

Thank you
Andrew Dartnell – Bramshall Speedwatch

Volunteering in Libraries – information from Staffordshire County Council

Make a difference in 2019 by volunteering at your local library

The New Year is often a time when we reflect on what we have been doing, need to do in the future and a time to think about doing something different. It could be that this year you want to try something new, or perhaps give back to the community.

With this in mind, you might want to consider volunteering in your local library. Not only is it a great way of helping your local community, it’s also a chance to explore your interests and put your experience to good use, meet new people, learn new skills, and all while giving you that sense of giving back.

We all take for granted how libraries are a vital part of every community. Besides being a treasure trove of great literature and resources, they are a safe space for everyone to enjoy. Everyone can benefit from the services our libraries provide.

We already have over 800 volunteers helping out in our libraries, all playing an important role and doing lots of different things. We’re always grateful for their time and support and when I meet them they tell me they enjoy the opportunity and the work they do is incredibly rewarding.
So if you fancy delivering books to some of Staffordshire Libraries housebound customers, volunteering in one of Staffordshire’s twenty Community Managed Libraries, helping to organise community events and activities, or supporting staff in Staffordshire’s County Managed Libraries then there will be an opportunity waiting for you.

All necessary training will be given! Please get in touch or ask about opportunities in your local library.
