Update from Department of Works and Pension – new Help Tool

Good afternoon

To support citizens who may be struggling and need support a new ‘Find Help ’ tool has been launched on GOV.UK. Those who use the tool will be signposted to information and support on a range of topics and help from government departments, local authorities and external partners. While the tool does not provide direct help itself, it can be a useful for colleagues to direct customers to.

 

If you wish to be removed from my mailing list, please let me know

Kind regards

Sarah

New Grasscutter for the Village

The Parish Council has recently invested in a ‘ride-on’ grass cutter and trailer in order to keep some of the rural footpaths around the village clear and tidy.

 

The Parish Chair, Neal Yates is currently using the grass cutter to the footpath that runs by Camblesforth Hall and as the above photo compared with below show, (before and after) this has already resulted in a great improvement for anyone who uses the walk.  He will also be cutting Camela Lane and other hard to get to areas – in his last Chairman’s Annual Review speech, Cllr Yates spoke about a strategy to improve the appearance of the village for all its residents – maintaining rural paths is another example of this and we hope all residents are happy with what the Parish Council is trying to achieve for everyone’s benefit.

Cllrs welcome any feedback or comments on this news piece.

 

 

 

 

Hanging Baskets in Camblesforth

 

The Parish Council has now installed the hanging baskets in the village along Brigg Lane and Mill Lane. We hope villagers will enjoy these as they grow and flower over the next few weeks / months.

 

 

 

As previously mentioned Cllrs are hoping this is the just the beginning of efforts to improve the look of the village and next summer we will be looking for other projects and hopefully more involvement from residents to ensure the Parish Council is giving the village what it wants.

The Parish Council would like to thank local business Adams Nurseries (who are based in the village) for all their work in helping Cllrs with this project and also Dave Marshall, our village grass-cutter / handyman, who will water and deadhead the baskets over the next weeks / months.

Cllrs welcome any comments / feedback on the new baskets as well as any ideas / suggestions for similar projects.

 

Bringing a bit of colour to Camblesforth

The Parish Council is very pleased to advise that it has recently purchased twenty hanging flower baskets which will be displayed on lamp posts in key areas of the village – Cllrs are hoping this will be the beginning of an annual event and will expand in forthcoming years with residents themselves becoming more and more involved.  Longer term we would like to look at flower beds for the Memorial and Millennium gardens

The baskets will hopefully begin to appear mid June and we hope they will improve the appearance of the village as well as raise spirits during these difficult times.

Urgent care survey 2020: What do you do if you need urgent medical attention on the same day?

ENGAGEMENT (NHS VALE OF YORK CCG) <voyccg.engagement@nhs.net>
Dear all,

We are carrying out a survey to find out what people do and where they go if they have an urgent health condition that needs treating on the same day. I would be grateful if you could share this with your communities and ask them to post it in relevant forums.

Urgent care survey 2020: What do you do if you need urgent medical attention on the same day?

Click here to take the survey.

Urgent care services are for when you need medical advice or treatment for a health condition on the same day.

Urgent care covers conditions which are not life threatening but cannot wait until a routine appointment with your GP or other healthcare professional is available. These may be conditions and injuries such as:

  • sprains and strains
  • eye problems
  • skin infections and rashes
  • minor head injuries
  • minor scalds and burns
  • feverish illness
  • abdominal pain
  • severe ear and throat infections.

In order to provide a good service, we want to understand what you already know about urgent care in the Vale of York and when to use it.

We want  to ask a few questions about what you do if you need medical attention on the same day, but are not seriously injured. We also want  to know how you would prefer to access services. This includes your views on medical advice over the telephone and the use of digital technology (such as video consultations).

 About the survey:

The survey is split into three sections:

  • Section 1: How you seek help for an urgent health condition
  • Section 2: If you have been unwell during covid-19, where have you been to treat a health condition and have you used digital technology
  • Section 3: About you – optional questions to make sure that we have asked lots of different people their views

This survey is for any resident of the Vale of York CCG area (including the city of York, Selby and outlying areas, Hambleton, Pocklington and outlying areas).

The survey should take about 5-10 minutes. We would like to thank you for your time, your feedback is really important to us.

To request this document in a different language or format, or for any more information please contact us.
