This is a survey undertaken in partnership with West Northamptonshire Council, Bedford Borough Council and the Beds, Cambs and Northants Wildlife Trust.

They are currently undertaking a project to understand how people use the Nene Valley for recreation, so we can understand the impact on the important wildlife habitats in the area.

As part of this an online survey has been developed.  If you go out into the valley to walk, run, cycle, fish, birdwatch, row or indeed undertake any other activity it would help us for you to be involved in the survey.

You should only complete the survey once, and can do so at any time. The survey will be open until December 2022 and it should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

The Parish Council deplores the humanitarian crisis that is unfolding in Ukraine.

 Members of the public can donate through official channels, such as the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal (https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal)  or the British Red Cross (https://www.redcross.org.uk) to contribute to the efforts to ease the suffering.
 
DEC charities are making a difference. DEC member charities bring essential aid including food, water, shelter, blankets, and medical assistance to those in need. But with the UN estimating that as many as 4 million people could become displaced due to the conflict, more help is still needed.

 

Constituencies are changing - have your say now via bcereviews.org.uk, or at a public hearing in your region. The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by Parliament to undertake an independent and impartial review of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency.

The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543. The Commission is holding a secondary consultation on its initial proposals for new constituencies, which takes place from 22 February to 4 April 2022.

During the consultation, public hearings will be held across the country to allow members of the public to provide their views in person. To have your say, submit your views in writing via the consultation website bcereviews.org.uk, by email, or letter; or speak at a public hearing in your region.

Find your nearest hearing and book a slot to speak at bit.ly/ bcepublichearings. On the consultation website, you can also view and take into account the responses sent in during the first consultation.

We want people to enjoy Halloween, but it can be a worrying time for parents and homeowners. Taking a few minutes to talk about safety and respect before you go out trick or treating can help children have a safe, fun time.

Remember, not everyone loves Halloween! If you see a ‘No Trick or Treat’ poster or sign at a house, don’t knock on the door. 

 

Advice for a safe Halloween

  • If young children are going trick or treating, make sure you or a responsible adult are with them at all times. Know where they are going and when to expect them back.
  • With older children, agree with them where they are going, a return time and if possible, which houses they intend to visit.
  • Remind everyone to respect posters displaying ‘No Trick or Treat’.
  • Never try to deliberately scare someone, especially older or vulnerable people.
  • Don’t allow anyone to go trick or treating alone – always stay with a group.
  • As it’s likely to be dark, carry torches and only walk down well-lit streets.
  • Remind children to NEVER enter anyone’s house and NEVER accept lifts in people’s cars.
  • Be careful crossing roads in the dark.
  • Ask children not to eat any sweets or other treats they are given until they get home. Check their treats before they eat any. Sweets and foods still in their original wrappers are safest.

Dressing up safety

  • Costumes shouldn’t be too long or restrict your child’s freedom to move – you don’t want any unplanned bumps in the night.
  • Stay away from candles, such as in pumpkins – homemade costumes and even some bought from shops can be highly flammable. 
  • Masks can obstruct a child’s vision. This is dangerous, especially when they are crossing roads. Consider using face paints instead.
  • Make sure children are going to be visible when they are out and about. Consider putting reflective tape on their costumes.
  • Some costumes – coupled with the excitement of Halloween – can encourage aggressive behaviour. Remind all trick or treaters that even fake knives, swords and other costume accessories can hurt or scare people.
  • Have a great time, stay safe and look out for each other. If you or someone you know is in danger call 999.

Residents’ advice

It’s not just at Halloween when unexpected callers turn up. Follow these tips for doorstep safety: 

  • Remember official visitors should always make an appointment beforehand.
  • Look through the door spyhole, viewer or window to see who is outside.
  • If you decide to open the door, put the chain or bar on first.
  • Check the caller’s details and ID before you let them into your home. Telephone the relevant organisation to confirm the caller’s identity, but don’t reply on a phone number that the caller gives you.
  • Don’t feel pressurised into buying items on your doorstep and be wary of callers who may offer home repairs or gardening. Report any unexpected traders to our doorstep crime hotline on 0345 23 07 702.
  • Consider putting a ‘Sorry No Trick or Treat’ poster on your door or window (available to download and print above). Please feel free to pass copies of the poster onto relatives/friends.
