FRIARAGE EMERGENCY CARE UNDER
Having downgraded the A&E Department to an Urgent Treatment Centre, the local CCG are now consulting on reducing the hours that the UTC would be open from 24/7 to 16/7, meaning there would be no emergency care at the Friarage between midnight and 8am. The Parish Council have written in support of the District Council's objections to this proposal.
Residents are encouraged to fill in the consultation survey at https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=156752408527 and lodge their objections. The consultation finishes on December 6th. Please help us to preserve vital services at The Friarage.

First Responders - REMINDER
The First Responders are still looking to recruit additional volunteers to the team. This does not require a great deal of time and can easily be arranged around your work/family/social commitments. A short training programme and a qualification test are all that is needed. Even a small commitment would be helpful to them and the local Ambulance Service. If you are interested in joining or simply wish to know more about the service they provide, please contact David Brampton on 663561.
Communications - A Reminder
Half of the households in the parish council area receive the newsletter by e-mail and about a third access information via the Facebook page. The Parish Council would like to increase this number and thus save some money on parish communications. If you would like to help, please send an e-mail to Councillor Sheldon at email@example.com, giving your e-mail address or make a friend request for the Facebook page.
DOG WASTE BINS IN CARPERBY
One of the issues to emerge from the recent Parish Plan Event in January was the continuing problem of dog waste in the village. The main problem seems to stem from visitors and it was felt that the location of the dog waste bins could be better advertised. IF YOU OWN A HOLIDAY LET IN THE VILLAGE OR USE YOUR SECOND HOME FOR FRIENDS AND VISITORS, PLEASE PRINT & DISPLAY THE ATTACHED MAP. More copies of the map are available from Councillor Sheldon at The Quarter House.
