A message from the Cambridge & Peterborough Combined Authority:
The Combined Authority is aware that over the next eighteen months the number of renewals of the concessionary bus passes is going to be potentially very high.
It is the responsibility of the pass holder to check when their pass is up for renewal and then to contact the Combined Authority to get a new one.
In order to aid the pass holder we have set up an online form which allows people to easily renew online. This online form can be found at Free Bus Passes – CPCA Transport (cambridgeshirepeterborough-ca.gov.uk) .
If people have any problems with the online form then they can also call the number on the back of their passes.
A message from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough:
The Commissioner’s public survey on policing and crime priorities ends on 30th July.
This is for members of the public of any age to share their views and priorities about policing and crime in the county and the survey feedback will be used to help shape the content of the Police and Crime Plan for the next three years.
I hope that the strong winds arent affecting you too badly and that you are keeping warm and well this winter.
There has been an incident in Soham which I wanted to highlight to everyone. An elderly gentleman was phoned by someone claiming to be his bank. They knew personal details (full name, date of birth and address) and claimed that he had been overpaying a charge. They claimed to have a cheque for him and said that they would like to bring it round so that he could pay it in. Fortunately the gentleman recognised it as a scam, but it is something to watch out for. His family think that the plan was to take him to the bank, which is quite possible; it is also plausible that they wanted access to his home. Either way, it is very suspicious and whatever their intentions were, I doubt that they were good or in the residents best interest.
On a lighter note there are some events that Id like to let you know about. Power2Inspire invite you to go along to Huntingdon, March or Ely to try simple, fun, accessible games. Try a different sport, suitable for young, old, disabled or not each week for gentle exercise. Ive attached the information in case you would like to join in. It looks like fun.
If you have any neighbours who have found themselves housebound, either due to the winter weather or for any other reason please let them know about The Library at Home Service. The library has lots of volunteers willing to pick up books for their neighbours during their own visit to the library. They will collect them and bring more every month and the visitor and the reader are matched so that the readers always have the same person – who often becomes a friend too. The colder weather often keeps elderly or less mobile residents at home and a book can be very welcome! We are equally, always looking for volunteers so if you or anyone you know has an hour a month to spare for a housebound neighbour wed love to hear from you. For more information about The Library At Home Service please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Parish Council are waiting for the Local Education Authority (LEA) to provide them and their solicitor with a lease. Once this has been agreed and signed then the Parish Council will be responsible for the rental and maintenance of the room.
Until the lease is signed the school is still responsible for the rental of the community room. So, if you want to rent the room contact the school for details.
If you would like more information please feel free to contact the LEA.
