   CONSULTATION ON THE FUTURE OF CHILDREN CENTRES    July 30, 2017

Hertfordshire County Council has launched a formal consultation on the future of children’s centre, health visiting and school nursing services. The purpose of the consultation is to consult the views of service users, staff and key partners, on the development of ‘Family Centres’ in Hertfordshire. As this may be relevant to your work we would like to encourage you to have your say by completing the consultation, and promoting it to any colleagues or families you may work with.  

 

The link to the consultation is: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/familycentreconsultation

 

The consultation will close on Wednesday 20 September 2017, and the county council will be proactively encouraging residents to complete the survey through attending a variety of family events over the summer and promoting the consultation via social media.

 

Should you have any further queries or comments, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via our central email address: familycentres@hertfordshire.gov.uk

   Help shape the future of waste and recycling    July 27, 2017

Help shape the future of waste and recycling

Residents in North and East Hertfordshire are being invited to take part in a survey to help shape the future of their waste and recycling services.

 North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC) and East Herts Council (EHC) are working together on a new joint contract for waste and recycling services to reduce the cost of providing these services to residents. Before a new contract is awarded, both councils are offering residents the opportunity to give their views on some of the options that are being considered.

One of the potential options includes introducing weekly collections of food waste alongside a chargeable garden waste service. Also on the table is whether to continue with a recycling service whereby one material e.g. glass or paper is collected separately, or to put all recycling in one bin.

Survey link

To take part in the survey please go to https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EHCWaste The survey should only take a few minutes to complete.

East Herts Council leader Linda Haysey said: "Waste collection and recycling are hugely important to residents in East and North Herts, which is why we are asking for their views on the future of these services.

"With the current contract coming to an end, we have a real opportunity to make a difference, and our residents have the chance to influence the decisions being made to ensure they get the right service for their needs, so I would encourage all residents in East and North Herts to take a few moments to complete this short survey."

Cllr Lynda Needham, Leader of NHDC said: "We know that the majority of residents feel that waste, recycling and street cleansing are the most important services that the Council provides. That's why it's really important that we seek your views now to help Councillors make a decision on which contract options to go for.

"As Councils are under severe financial pressure, there will clearly be some difficult decisions ahead, but both North and East Herts Councils are committed to continuing to provide a high quality waste, recycling and street cleansing service."

If you require a paper copy of the survey please contact us on 01279 655261 and press four to speak to Environmental Operations. The survey closes on August 31.

The results will be used to help councillors in both councils to decide which contract options to go for. The joint contract is due to be awarded in October and will commence in May 2018.

Neighbourhood Watch

 

 

 

 

Dear Neighbour,

 

Neighbourhood Watch is one of the biggest and most successful crime prevention

Initiatives ever. Now involving more than 120,000 households in Hertfordshire, it is based on the simple idea that you and your neighbours can help to reduce crime and create a safer and better place to live, work and play. It is also a means of keeping an eye on the vulnerable, elderly and disabled.

 

 

The OWL system is a personal computer based alerting system to provide communities with a timely warning of local crime. It is invaluable when a distraction burglary takes place or a bogus caller is reported in the neighbourhood, to warn residents of recent serious crimes in the locality or if a suspicious car is seen outside a school. Alerts and crime prevention advice will be sent to you by electronic mail, from the local policing team.

 

Also joining the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme is free and some insurance companies offer reductions on house insurance if you are a member.

 

Join Neighbourhood Watch and encourage your neighbours to join too. It’s a proven deterrent to burglars. Email: wlo@herts.pnn.police.uk

 

 

Yours sincerely

 

Terry Morris

 

Watch Liason Officer
