Who’s taking you home tonight?

Horsham DC

WITH the Christmas and New Year party season upon us, people are being reminded to check if their taxi or private hire vehicle and driver are licensed.

At a time of year when there can be an increase in unauthorised vehicles and drivers, Horsham District Council is encouraging residents and visitors alike to be alert.

The council is responsible for the licensing of taxis and private hire vehicles in the district.

Those taking a taxi or private hire vehicle should look out for the vehicle licence plate on the rear of the vehicle and for the driver’s identification badge.

Together these are an assurance that the car and driver are properly licensed to carry the public.

Andy Skipper, Licensing Officer at Horsham District Council, said:

“All vehicles operating in the Horsham district are inspected regularly and thoroughly to ensure that they are clean, mechanically sound, insured and, above all, safe for the travelling public.

“Every driver has passed an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check and local area knowledge test. They also regularly undergo medical examinations to ensure that they are physically fit to drive.”

There are two different types of vehicle operating in the Horsham district:

  • A taxi (proper name ‘hackney carriage’) can be taken from a taxi rank or hailed in the street and must be white, display a roof sign and be fitted with a taximeter which measures the journey and calculates the cost. The price on the meter is the maximum price that the driver can charge but they may choose to charge less. The meter must be used at all times so that the exact cost of the journey is clear. Higher charges than normal may apply over the holiday period.
  • Private hire vehicles (often described as minicabs) must be pre-booked and it is illegal for the driver of a private hire vehicle to pick up passengers if a telephone booking has not been confirmed by the operator. Unlike hackney carriages, private hire vehicles do not have to adhere to the fare tariff set by the Council.

Where no meter is installed, the advice is to always agree the fare in advance before travelling.

Further information about hackney carriage and private hire licensing can be obtained from the council’s website.

Please send an email to licensing@horsham.gov.uk or call Horsham District Council on 01403 215471/215488.

A moment to remember loved ones at Christmas with St Catherine’s Hospice

Monday, December 15th, 2014

St Catherine's Hospice Tree of Light service at K2 in Crawley

More than 900 people gathered together at St Catherine’s Hospice’s Crawley Tree of Light remembrance service, to honour those they have lost.

St Catherine’s Tree of Light services are a way of finding comfort after losing someone close, with the largest service taking place on Sunday (14th December) at K2 Leisure Centre, Crawley. Those who have lost a loved one can write messages on stars for those they miss and hang them on the Tree of Light; a shining memorial to those who have passed away. The service includes readings and carols, providing a meaningful time to remember loved ones who are no longer with us. Following the event the messages of remembrance written on stars are hung up in St Catherine’s Hospice.

Louise Brown, event organiser, said: “We hold our Tree of Light services as a way for local people to find comfort, by taking time to remember loved ones that they have lost. Our help doesn’t stop when a person dies and it is incredibly important that we can provide counselling for those who are left behind, as well as opportunities like this to honour the memory of those who have passed away.”

Henry Smith MP calls on Crawley to Rock the House!

Friday, December 12th, 2014

rth2015

Henry Smith MP has urged local musicians to enter Rock the House 2015, a competition celebrating young British artists with a prize of performing in Parliament.

The competition has six categories: Best Band, Best Solo Act, Best Solo Act (Under 19), Best Band (Under 19), Best Music Video, and the People’s Choice Award.

Henry said;

“I am delighted to ask Crawley’s young people to once again take part in Rock the House, and its sister competition, Film the House.

“Among the many prizes on offer include a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on the House of Commons Terrace, as well as music equipment and masterclasses from professionals.

“I look forward to listening to what Crawley has to offer!”

Henry will nominate his favourite from each category, after which a judging panel will select a shortlist of entrants from the nominations by MPs in each section. The closing date for entries is 31st December 2014.

In the case of bands and solo artists, this will include a live finals show on 18th March 2015, from which one winning band and one winning solo artist will be selected.

The under 19, venue, and music video categories will be judged separately. The under 19 categories may also have a ‘battle of the bands’ style show at a date to be decided.

Prizes include music equipment; master-classes from industry specialists; performance slots at music festivals; and a once in a lifetime opportunity to perform on the House of Commons Terrace.

Appeal for witneses to Crawley rape

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014
police rape
Police are appealing for witnesses after a girl reported being raped as she walked home from school in Crawley in September.

The 11-year-old was walking home from school along Balcombe Road around 3pm. She was taken by a man onto a footpath between Blackwater Lane and Balcombe Road.  He pushed her into the bushes where he raped her. She has only reported it recently.

Detective Inspector James Norbury from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said: “This was an extremely distressing incident for the young victim who has only just built up the courage to report it and she and her family are now being supported by specially trained officers. Although she can’t remember the exact day it happened, she believes it is around 22nd September.

“It was light and a busy time of day so we are appealing to anyone who might have been in that area of Maidenbower around 3pm.

“An efit of the suspect has been put together and he is described as being aged about 40, with ginger and grey hair, gingery face stubble and wearing a black fleece beanie hat and knee length khaki coloured coat.

“Anyone with information or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area is asked to contact police on 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or 101 quoting Operation Dunlop. Alternatively contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Police seek assailants over late night Crawley attack

Monday, December 8th, 2014

Police in Crawley are seeking two men suspected of involvement in a violent late night town centre attack.

At about 12.30am on Friday (5th December) there was an altercation between two men and two other men in Troys Kebab House, Crawley High Street, during which one of the first two, a 39-year old from Wickford in Essex, sustained a serious injury to his jaw.

The victim was treated at East Surrey Hospital and then went to Queen Victoria Hospital at East Grinstead to await surgery on his jaw.
The suspects are both described as Asian, aged 20 to 30 and of medium build. One is 5’8″ with a bushy beard and was wearing a hat. The other suspect was about 5’6″-5’7″.

Detective Sergeant Peter Yarrow said; “Anyone who witnessed the incident or who knows the identity of the suspects is asked to contact the CID at Crawley via 101@sussex.pnn.police or call 101 quoting serial 18 of 12./12. You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Giving safely at Christmas

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

Charity Commission

The Charity Commission has today released a short animated video designed to emphasise its Safer Giving messages, coinciding with Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving, launched by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) in the UK.

In 2012, an ICM poll* commissioned by the regulator highlighted that 85% of people gave directly to charity at Christmas, donating an average of around £40 to the good causes they cared about. One of the groups least likely to make any checks before donating was young people. At that time, 78% of respondents aged 18-24 stated that after taking the poll they would be more likely to make checks in the future. The video serves as a timely reminder in the run up to Christmas.

The video, which can also be viewed on the commission’s YouTube channel, has been launched in support of Giving Tuesday (2nd December) as a world-wide day of giving.

Charity Commission – safer giving at Christmas

Paula Sussex, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission, said:

It’s great that people continue to give generously at Christmas and we’d like to remind the public that by taking a few small steps you can ensure that your money goes to the right place. Whilst instances of fundraising fraud are rare, they sadly do occur, and the public has a key part to play in keeping charities accountable by using the resources available to them to make those checks. On this Giving Tuesday I would encourage people donating to charity to watch our video, and to make sure they’re giving safely both today and throughout the year.

To give safely this Christmas, follow these tips:

  1. Before giving, check the charity’s name and registration number. You can verify this at the Charity Commission’s website at www.charitycommission.gov.uk. The charity’s profile shows whether or not the organisation is up to date with its annual reporting requirements.
  2. When approached by collectors, check whether they are wearing a proper ID badge and that any collection tin is sealed.
  3. If in doubt, ask the collector for more information – a genuine fundraiser should be happy to answer questions and explain more about the work of the charity.
  4. Genuine fundraising materials should feature the charity’s name, registered name and a landline contact number. Be wary of those that list only a mobile number.
  5. Look for the FRSB tick logo indicating that the charity is signed up to fundraising regulation, encouraging you to give with confidence. www.givewithconfidence.org.uk
  6. To check whether a fundraiser is authorised to collect money in a public place, contact your local authority or, if in London, the police. If it is a private place, check with the owner.
  7. Take care when responding to emails or clicking links to a charity’s website to ensure that they are genuine. Instead, search online for your favourite charity to check you have the right web address.
  8. Carefully review collection bags for clothing and household goods to ascertain whether they are from a genuine charity.
  9. After making these checks, if you think that a collection or appeal is not legitimate, report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 and inform the Charity Commission.
  10. If in any doubt, contact your favoured charity direct to make a donation.

Find out more about Giving Tuesday at www.givingtuesday.org or follow #GivingTuesday

*ICM interviewed a random sample of 1160 adults aged 18+ via telephone in the UK between 30 November and 2 December 2012. Surveys were conducted across the country and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults. The ICM Poll looked at checks donors make before giving;other findings included:

  • 39 per cent of donors ask collectors for ID or question them about the organisation
  • Respondents aged 18-24 and over 65 are least likely to make checks before donating, with 49% and 46% respectively failing to do so
  • Overall, women make more checks than men, with 30% of female respondents checking for a registered charity number when approached, compared to 24% of males
  • Men give an average of £52 directly to charities at Christmas time, with women donating an average of £27

The most popular ways of giving at Christmas time are purchasing Christmas cards and other goods (64%), cash collections (53%), raffles and lotteries (44%) and bag/household goods collections (43%)

Transforming Queens Square

Thursday, November 27th, 2014

Queens Square Concept Design - CurvesQueens Square Concept Design - FormalQueens Square Concept Design - Diagonals

Three design ideas set to transform the town centre’s tired Queens Square have been created following public consultation in the summer.

Crawley Borough Council and West Sussex County Council are investing £3m into revitalising the area with work set to start late next year.

The work is set to redefine the square as the heart of the town centre, creating a high quality, distinctive and enjoyable space for everyone to enjoy. It is also hoped to encourage new and existing building owners and businesses to invest in the area, potentially acting as a catalyst for wider regeneration.

Urban designers Burns + Nice are the councils’ partners on the project and have developed the three concepts (formal, diagonal and curves) which all incorporate a level square with attractive planting, seating, lighting, water jets and ample space for alfresco dining and future events.

Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, said: “This project is going to have a huge positive impact on the area. We’re very excited both by the physical changes and the potential for further regeneration across the town centre through working closely with the private sector and encouraging further investment.

“There are clearly other areas in the town centre which require attention and we think this project is an excellent first step to bringing that wider regeneration forward.”

Crawley businesses and building owners were invited to view the designs at a drop-in event yesterday and encouraged to leave feedback to help designers create an enjoyable and useable space for everyone.

Residents and visitors will also get the opportunity to view the designs in the town centre from next week. More information and a feedback form are available at www.crawley.gov.uk/queenssquare

West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Pieter Montyn, said: “Three great designs have been drawn up. We ask as many residents and businesses in Crawley to take a look at this and tell Crawley Borough Council what they think.

“The more people who take part, the easier it will be to decide what the future of Queens Square should look like.”

This stage of consultation ends on 19th December. For more information and to have your say on Queens Square regeneration visit www.crawley.gov.uk/queenssquare

Christmas Celebrations In Crawley 2014

Monday, November 24th, 2014

The last time Crawley saw a celebration for Christmas was back in November 2011 when the County Mall hosted Scott Maslen to switch on the lights. Sadly there has been nothing since…..until Saturday!

With only four months in which to arrange the celebrations, the committee got to work and delivered an entertaining evening of food, elves, giant teddies, small rides for the littlens, performances from the best talent in Crawley, a great special guest in the form of Stephen Mulhern and plenty more…..oh and some lights!

We arrived at 15:00 and left around 19:00. While we were there we got to experience the food stalls, cake stalls, the coffee van, and the beer tent. We took lots of pictures and video for you…..enjoy.

Pictures 2014

We were given some fab pictures of the fireworks by Blue Elephant UK Ltd who supplied the stage lighting and the great display on the Town Hall building:

Music and performances from various talent from Crawley was brilliant and kep us entertained the whole time we were there. Here are some short clips for you to see….full versions coming soon…..

And to end the evening a fantastic fireworks display!

We look forward to the 2015 celebrations!

Police in Surrey and Sussex supporting national counter terrorist awareness campaign

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Police CDT1
Police across Sussex and Surrey are supporting a national counter terrorism awareness campaign to encourage people to be vigilant and tell them about simple measures they can take to make it harder for terrorists to attack the UK.

Following the increase of the international terrorism threat to severe, there is a heightened need to ensure that the UK is in the best position to deter and detect potential terrorist threats.

The focus throughout the week from 24th to 29th November is on five key areas where action by the police, businesses and the public can help prevent terrorism: crowded places, transport hubs, preventing violent extremism, terrorist financing,
and the tools that terrorists need to operate.

Officers and staff will be carrying out a range of visits, events and related activities to bring home to the public the dangers of terrorism and what they can do to help combat it

Assistant Chief Constable Stuart Cundy, Head of the Surrey and Sussex Specialist Crime Command, said; “While the severe threat level indicates that it is highly likely that a terrorist attack could happen in the UK, there is currently no specific intelligence of a terrorist attack.

“But everybody, from law enforcement, to businesses, to the general public, has a role to play in keeping the UK safe from terrorism.

“Be vigilant. If you suspect it, report it. Nobody is better placed to detect something that is out of place in their communities than the people living in them.

“We encourage people to report suspicious activity by calling the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.”

In Sussex and Surrey, a range of activities are taking place, including;

On Monday 24th November the focus is on the ongoing work to train more people working in shopping centres, cinemas, sports stadiums and other businesses to look out for suspicious behaviour and what they should do if an attack happens.

Special ‘Operation Griffin’ briefing sessions for local staff are taking place at the Amex Stadium in Brighton and at the University of Surrey.
On Tuesday 25th November police will be at transport hubs – Gatwick, Brighton, Guildford and Woking railway stations, and at the M25 services area at Clackett Lane and Cobham, advising commuters on how to look out for suspicious behaviour and what they should do if an attack happens.

On Wednesday 26th November there will be Prevent’ briefings for students and staff at Colleges in Horsham and North Surrey, and at the Universities of Brighton, Surrey and Chichester. Terrorist groups who pose a threat to us seek to recruit people to their cause but the percentage of people who are prepared to support violent extremism in the UK is very small. Communities can work together to develop resilience to extremist influences and the Prevent programme is part of the counter-terrorism strategy. Its aim is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

On Thursday 27th November activity includes similar ‘Prevent’ awareness briefings to Surrey Fire and Rescue staff, and to money bureaux in Crawley, Woking, Brighton and Gatwick.

The money bureaux briefings acknowledge that the fight against terrorism includes effective actions to impede the flow of funds that terrorist organisations depend upon to secure weapons and other materials. Terrorists raise money through money laundering, posing as charity fundraisers, placing false charity collection boxes in shops and a wide range of criminal activity.

Law enforcement agencies are also active at all international ports to prevent criminal funds being couriered overseas to aid terrorists.

On Friday 28th November police are engaging with shooting associations and clubs to encourage people to report any concerns about the behaviour of gun owners or users.

Police are asking businesses selling explosives to keep to security standards. Police are asking farmers, retailers and their associations to report any suspicious activity around fertilisers and other chemicals that can be made into explosives.

On Friday 28th and Saturday 29th November officers who normally work behind the scenes will be taking part in a series of local ‘meet the public’ events to brief communities on the terrorist threat.

Let’s FACE It! for the High Street

Monday, November 24th, 2014

As one of the original New Towns, Crawley is a modern and vibrant place to live. We often notice how more recent developments are shaping the town’s appearance over time, but it’s also important to remember that Crawley is also home to many historic buildings and locations.

Parts of the town with particularly distinctive characters have been identified as conservation areas. There are four in the town centre – the historic High Street, St. Peter’s, Dyers Almshouses on Northgate Road and Sunnymead. Each of these areas has a special appearance that it is important to preserve and, if possible, enhance.

To help make this happen, Central Crawley Conservation Area Advisory Committee (4Cs) is an independent group of residents, businesses and community representatives. The group meets every two months and takes an active role in providing feedback on planning applications proposed in the town centre’s conservation areas identifying improvements that can be made to the appearance and environment in these locations.

As part of their conservation efforts, the 4Cs will be joining up with Let’s FACE it! in December to carry out a bulb planting campaign in the High Street.

Bulbs will be planted in the flower beds outside the Jar Jar Bar and Barclays Bank and residents who want to be involved are encouraged to meet outside Barclays Bank on Wednesday 3rd December at 10am.

Councillor Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, said: “It’s important to protect and enhance our historic sites around Crawley, so it’s encouraging to see campaigns like this bulb planting event to help promote the conservation areas and get more people interested in our town’s heritage.”

The 4Cs are always looking for new members and would like to hear from anyone with an interest in protecting the historic environment and improving the attractiveness of the conservation areas. If you’re interested in conservation and would like to get involved, the 4Cs would like to hear from you!

And if you would like to help on 3rd December, please wear old clothes and stout footwear. Children are most welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Tools and equipment will be provided by Crawley Borough Council.

For more information on the 4Cs , email forward.plans@crawley.gov.uk or call Anthony Masson on 01293 438761. And for more Lets FACE it! information, contact Ruth Growney at Ruth.Growney@crawley.go.uk or on 01293 438926

Big Tidy Up at Woldhurstlea Wood

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

GCF CU

Crawley Borough Council staff and a local resident gathered at Woldhurstlea Wood in Gossops Green to help tidy and clear rubbish last week.

The litter clearing event was part of the nationwide Keep Britain Tidy’s Wombles Big Tidy Up Event, which is being supported by Waitrose.

During the event, the council’s Community Wardens and Ron MacRae managed to clear 11 sacks of litter, a metal bed frame, a metal dustbin, garden power tools, chair cushions and cones from the woodland.

Cabinet member for Environmental Services, Cllr Colin Lloyd said: “It’s great to see a member of the community join our Community Wardens and help to keep this wooded area clean and tidy.

“It’s important to look after areas like Woldhurstlea Wood and prevent them from becoming dumping grounds, ruining their natural beauty and tranquil surroundings.”

Salsa dancers from Crawley & Horsham perform on BBC Children In Need with Tony Blackburn

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Salsa dancers from Horsham & Crawley were invited to perform on BBC Children In Need on Friday 14th. The dancers had performed flash mobs around Gatwick Airport at the invitation of The Rotary Group of Horsham.

Both BBC London and Children In Need picked up on the videos of the flash mobs and the group were invited to perform on the night as part of the live broadcast. Over 20 dancers went along to New Broadcasting House and performed a ‘Rueda de Casino’, a Cuban salsa style danced in pairs in a circle. Jon Riley who runs Horsham Salsa was briefly interviewed along with Susanna Rodriguez.

IMG_20141114_205048

When the presenter then invited Jon and Susanna to ‘keep dancing’, Radio and TV legend Tony Blackburn came over and joined in the fun.

The dancers then joined Tony Blackburn at the end of that section of the evenings broadcast dancing a Conga onto the Pudsey bus.

The combined efforts of all the Rotary activities at Gatwick Airport raised something in the region of £3,500.

Background Information

The performance was only broadcast on BBC London as most regions had coverage of their own local events, though as this is the default channel for many Sky viewers, it was seen as far away as Cumbria. It is also the version on BBC iPlayer. BBC Children In Need part 1 – approximately 1hr 15 mins into the broadcast.

2014 11 13 Dancing With Tony Blackburn 4

Jon Riley started Horsham Salsa over 7 years ago and has been holding Cuban Style salsa classes weekly. Currently classes are held on Wednesdays at Chameleon in Horsham and Thursdays at The White Knight on Worth Road in Crawley.

The 21 dancers involved were a pretty even mix of Horsham and Crawley residents.

The dance style Rueda de Casino, is danced in pairs in a circle and a leader calls out the names of the moves, in Spanish. The move names are in Spanish as in the same way that ballet is always taught in French, so ‘Casino’ is always called in Spanish and is done that way throughout the world.

The invite from Rotary came about as the result of a Flashmob that the group did in Horsham as part of a worldwide day of Rueda Flashmobs. The main video of that flasm mob has nearly 3,000 views.

The videos of the flashmobs (sadly not the greatest quality) were put on You Tube and it was those that were picked up by first BBC London and then by the main Children In Need charity.

The invitation to go up to London for the broadcast was made about a week before the event and all the dancers had to make arrangements to leave work early or change plans to be there.

The huge advantage of this form of dance (Rueda de Casino) is that a group can dance in Unison with no rehearsals as all the dancers have already learned the names of the moves. This means that the group can form up, dance together and disappear again with limited preparation.

Website for the club is www.horshamsalsa.co.uk and www.crawleysalsa.co.uk

Fundraising gets a good kicking

Monday, November 17th, 2014

BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s UK charity. Since 1980 it has raised over £600 million to change the lives of disabled children and young people in the UK. One of the highlights is an annual telethon, held in November and televised on all the BBC channels from 7:30pm until 2am. “Pudsey Bear” is BBC Children in Need’s mascot.

The BBC’s first broadcast charity appeal took place in 1927, in the form of a five-minute radio broadcast on Christmas Day. It raised about £1,143, which equates to about £27,150 by today’s standards, and was donated to four children’s charities. The first televised appeal took place in 1955 and was called the Children’s Hour Christmas Appeal, with the yellow glove puppet Sooty Bear and Harry Corbett fronting it. The Christmas Day Appeals continued on TV and radio until 1979. During that time a total of £625,836 was raised. Terry Wogan first appeared during this five-minute appeal in 1978, and again in 1979. Sometimes cartoon characters such as Peter Pan were used.In 1980, the first Children in Need telethon was broadcast, a series of short segments linking the evening’s programming instead of the usual continuity. It was devoted to raising money exclusively destined for charities working with children in the United Kingdom. (source..wiki)

The people of Crawley joined in with many events going on around the town on Friday, to help raise funds for Children In Need 2014.

Sue Beadell, 4th Dan Black Belt with Crawley Black Belt Academy joined a ‘few others’ to do just that. Sue told us “the parents and students of Crawley Black Belt Academy took part in a kick-a-thon in aid of Children In Need.

“One of our young blackbelt students, Ryan Verner, came to us with an idea. His idea was for a few students and instructors  to do a few kicks and raise some money. Word soon spread and everyone wanted to get involved.

Black Belt Academy

“Sensei Wayne Beadell, picked a number out of the air. This just happened to be 100,000! Not a problem to the students and their very supportive parents. It worked out that 100 people would do 1000 kicks each. So that is what they did. 1000 kicks for Children In Need! Crawley Black Belt Academy Rocks!!”

Well done to all involved! What a great effort by all.

Local musicians to Lord it up in London

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Local musician and composer Paul Stanworth recently performed with his dad Mike, at a local fundraising event in Crawley.

In the audience was Lord Neil Kinnock. On hearing Paul perform, Lord Kinnock joined him on stage at the event to perform a few songs.

IMG_4857

Lord Kinnock was so impressed by Paul and Mike Stanworth, he invited them to perform at a large event in London, with many high profile celebrities and film stars.

Lord Neil Kinnock said “When I heard Paul and his Dad play at a Crawley fundraising dinner, I knew they’d be terrific at our fundraiser in London and I was very glad when they said they could do it. Paul can play absolutely everything!”

IMG_5202Paul told us this was his play list for the evening. Lord Kinnok signed it so
Paul has now put the picture in and framed

Paul Stanworth said “we are really excited. It doesn’t seem real actually. My dad and I have performed many times together at various events, but I feel this one is going to be one of the most memorable. We are extremely grateful for the invite. Lord Kinnock was very charismatic and friendly, we had a good laugh. Can’t wait to see him again. Lord Kinnok is a bit of a family hero in a sense, as I am from a long line of yorkshire coalminers. It is going to be a privilege to perform for him and his guests.”

New vehicle system to save on fuel costs

Friday, November 14th, 2014

SECAmbVehicles

South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is to install a new system on its ambulances which will save on fuel costs and in turn reduce emissions.

The dynamic speed control system will mean a vehicle’s speed is restricted when it is not on an emergency.

The system, which only comes into operation when a vehicle is being driven under non-emergency conditions, works by altering the vehicle’s acceleration profile. It means vehicles not responding to an incident as an emergency will be restricted to 62mph.

Evidence from a trial carried out by SECAmb in the Chertsey area suggests that the Trust is likely to see a reduction of at least 10% in fuel usage across its fleet as a result of the changes with savings being used to further improve patient care.

With the Trust’s fleet covering approximately 17 million miles each year and fuel costing around £6m a year it is hoped the total savings are likely to equate to more than half a million pounds every year.

By altering the vehicle’s acceleration profile, wear and tear will be reduced and ride comfort for both patients and crews is expected to improve.

The system, which will be rolled out across SECAmb’s Kent, Surrey and Sussex region over the coming months, will first be fitted to the Trust’s A&E vehicles. It will then be installed on the Trust’s patient transport vehicles and other support vehicles in its fleet.

As part of the rollout signage will be fitted to the vehicles to inform other road users that the vehicle is limited when not on an emergency.

SECAmb’s Head of Fleet Justin Wand said: “The decision to install this system on our operational vehicles will significantly reduce their fuel consumption and save public money.

“In addition, given the huge number of miles our vehicles cover, we know we have a duty to take our responsibility to the environment very seriously.

“This move is just one way which we can, to an extent, limit our impact as an organisation on the environment at the same time as making savings, which can be reinvested into patient care.”

Hair today, gone tomorrow…..all for good friends and a great cause

Friday, November 14th, 2014

One of our readers Katie Pudney recently made us aware of her friend Maxine who is about to embark on a very selfless act.

We met Katie and her friend Maxine to find out what this selfless act will be. Maxine told us “on the 4th December I am going to have my hair plaited, chopped off and donated to The Little Princess Trust.”

MaxineMainPic2

We asked Maxine why she is doing this and she told us “I have two very close friends who are currently battling cancer, one has breast cancer and the other stomach cancer. I wanted to do something special for them and as they are losing their hair, I thought it would be quite befitting. I wanted to let them know that we support them all the way.”

Katie is a part time hairdresser and will be cutting Maxine’s hair. Katie told us “I am so proud of Maxine and I am honoured to be the one doing the hair cut. It will all be sent to the Little Princess Trust on the day. It’s just lovely to think a poorly child could feel more human again with a wig made from Maxine’s hair, it would be brilliant. I’m going to give Maxine a lovely pixie look.”

Little Princess Trust are an organisation with the sole purpose of providing real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.

Shelley speaks to Katie and Maxine:

Maxine went on to tell us “I can’t wait to help a child who has lost their hair. After all, I’m lucky, my hair will grow back. If it makes them feel better then it is all worth it.”

Maxine is raising funds via her Just Giving page. Maxine told us they already have over £300 in just a week but her target is £500. If you would like to support Maxine please click here.

The cut will be filmed by a friend on the day at a private location.

There are the unspoken heroes of our town who do little things that make a huge difference, in many ways, Maxine Harrison is one of them.

We would like to wish Maxine all the best with her new look and want to thank her and Katie for speaking to us.

Henry Smith MP helps launch Tickets for Troops at Crawley Town FC

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Henry Smith MP Dave Pottinger Tickets for Troops

Henry Smith MP has joined with Dave Pottinger, Chairman of Crawley Town FC, in officially launching the club’s involvement in the Tickets for Troops initiative, in a presentation before Tuesday’s evening’s match with Gillingham.

Henry said;

“It was an honour to help launch Crawley Town’s involvement in Tickets for Troops. It was an extremely poignant evening, coming on Armistice Day, where the Last Post was played, and a minute’s silence observed, before kick-off.

“I am grateful that Crawley Town responded so quickly to my request for them to join the scheme. I am pleased that they have become the first organisation in our town to donate tickets to our servicemen and women, who will forever deserve our thanks.”

Tickets for Troops provide free tickets to members of the Armed Forces for a variety of sporting, musical and cultural events. The scheme offers serving personnel, and those medically discharged from the forces since 2001, the well-deserved opportunity to enjoy an event of their choice with their friends and families.

Service personnel can go to www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk and by searching for Crawley, will be able to book tickets for future Crawley Town home league matches

Dave Pottinger, Chairman of Crawley Town Football Club, commented;

“We’re delighted to be supporting the Tickets for Troops initiative.

“No one should ever forget the sacrifices made our by service personnel around the world and Tickets for Troops is a wonderful way of rewarding them for the hard work they do on our behalf. We look forward to welcoming Armed Forces personnel to our matches for a long time to come.”

Veronica Bamford, Director of Operations at Tickets for Troops, said;

“We are delighted that Crawley Town FC will be supporting our nation’s servicemen and women this season. Henry Smith MP has also been a great support in enabling Crawley’s first organisation to donate tickets through Tickets for Troops.”

Retailers support Appeal for vulnerable local children

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Home_Start_Snowflake_CMYK_14

Local charity Home-Start CHAMS is delighted at the support from retailers Tesco, HomeCandy.com and Bartie’s Sussex Faire, for its first ‘Snowflake Appeal’ raising funds for vulnerable local children.

Tesco Extra stores at Crawley and Horsham are inviting customers to decorate the Christmas tree in their stores with Christmas Wishes in support of the Snowflake Appeal.  Customers can give a donation to receive a Snowflake Appeal pin badge and write a special Christmas Wish message, which will be added to the tree.

“We would love people to come along to help the tree fill up with their Christmas Wishes in support of vulnerable local children.  They just need to pop along to our stores and look out for the Snowflake Appeal posters” said Tesco’s Customer Service Manager

Home-Start CHAMS work with families with young children, helping to prevent crisis, because when parents suffer tragedy and hardship, children can suffer for a lifetime.  They are running the Snowflake Appeal to help raise the money they need to offer the vital support these children need and make sure they can reach even more vulnerable local children in 2015.

National on-line home accessories and gift retailer HomeCandy.com and local food producer Bartie’s Sussex Faire are also backing Home-Start’s Snowflake Appeal.  Throughout the festive season, HomeCandy.com will be making donations to the Appeal for all purchases which include a special Snowflake item in the shopping basket.  Bartie’s are supporting the Appeal through all sales of their Christmas Food Items and will have a stall at many local food markets and the major Christmas Festivals across Sussex in the weeks before Christmas.

“We are so pleased to have the support of these businesses for our Snowflake Appeal”, commented Jacquie Thomas, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Home-Start CHAMS. “It gives local people a real choice in ways they can be part of the Appeal – with something as simple as making a Christmas Wish, or doing some Christmas shopping, right through to running their own event; doing something they love.”

For details of ways individuals and businesses can support the Snowflake Appeal go to www.homestartchams.org.uk/snowflake or contact them on 01293 416327.

Reward of more than £10,000 put up to catch group of burglars

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Rewards worth up to £10,500 have been put up to help find a group of burglars who have broken into almost 100 homes across the south east.

Detectives are now linking offences from across East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, Kent, Surrey and London to one group of offenders but need the public’s help to identify those responsible.

A total of 34 homes in West Sussex, 10 in East Sussex, seven in Brighton and Hove, 35 in Kent, 8 in Surrey and two in London are thought to have been burgled by the group.

Sussex Police, Kent Police and Surrey Police have now each contributed £2,500 to a reward to help catch the offenders – a total of £7,500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved.

Independent from the police, the charity Crimestoppers is offering its own reward of up to £3,000 for information that is passed anonymously through the organisation’s 0800 555111 number that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for these crimes.

If information passed to the charity should lead to an arrest and conviction, both rewards will be considered.

The group of burglars usually smash doors or windows to get into the homes, carry out quick searches and steal gold jewellery in particular.

The most recent offences happened in Surrey between 3pm and 9.15pm on Tuesday 4 November at Dovers Green Road, Reigate, Yew Tree Close, Horley, St Monica’s Road, Tadworth, and Bakers Close, Lingfield.

They are believed to be using at least two vehicles to carry out the burglaries, a silver Audi and a blue Ford Mondeo, both of which are being driven on false numberplates.

Detective Inspector Dave Wardley-Wilkins said: “The offences across the region are so similar that it we have to presume that they are all linked.

“We believe one group of burglars are involved but at this stage we do not know if it is exactly the same group of people each time. A number of people are involved but the make-up of the group may change depending on who is available.

“In each case the burglars appear to be looking for jewellery when they break in and often leave other valuables items behind.

“There already have been almost a hundred victims in this series and we urgently need the public’s help to stop these offenders before they claim any more.”

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who was in the area of the burglaries on the days they were committed or the days before and who may have seen people acting suspiciously.

Of particular interest is anyone seen with a silver Audi or blue Ford Mondeo like those pictured that are fitted with numberplates that have been cloned from another, unrelated car of the same type and colour.

The numberplates could be switched after the burglaries so police would also like information from anyone who may have seen cars having their numberplates changed or who has found abandoned numberplates.

In West Sussex the group are believed to be responsible for nine burglaries in Copthorne, five in East Grinstead, 11 in Crawley, two in Burgess Hill, two in Haywards Heath, three in Ardingly and one each in Turners Hill and Crawley Down.

In East Sussex they are linked to seven break-ins in Crowborough, two in Robertsbridge and one in Battle.

In Brighton there are four burglaries in Patcham and three in Hollingbury that are believed to be responsible for.

In Kent they are suspected of being involved in 12 in Tunbridge Wells, five in Sevenoaks, two in Cranbrook, four in Longfield, five in Tonbridge and one in each of Otford, West Kingsdown, Farmingham, Meopham, Wateringley, Snodland and Kings Hill.

In Surrey they are linked to four in Horley and one in each of Smallfield, Reigate, Tadworth and Lingfield.

The London offences were in Bexley and Sidcup.

Anyone with information should contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting Operation Smart, email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101.

If you have any information about burglaries or shops selling stolen goods, call 101 or email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk. For crime prevention advice visit www.sussex.police.uk.

If you see or hear a burglary taking place call 999 immediately.

Residents are also being encouraged to register their items on the world’s largest property database so that if they are stolen, they can be reunited with the owners – and so the offenders can be prosecuted.

You can register your property in just a few minutes by visiting www.immobilise.com. To watch a video about Immobilise and how it works, visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XZ66WEER_c.

Follow the ongoing burglary campaign being run across the south east on Twitter using the hashtag #LightLockList.
