12/05/2017: SERVING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY - Council Praise for Bus Company

 

The exceptional service provided by Kinch Buses to the residents of Rempstone was highlighted at the annual meeting of the parish council.

 

The half hourly No9 Kinch service between Loughborough and Nottingham is a real community asset commented council chair Councillor David Walker. He said: “ This regular and efficient service is a real lifeline to residents and others living in the vicinity of this rural village. In these times of so many stringent cuts we are fortunate that this service maintains our links to these two centres”, he said.

 

At the meeting Councilor Walker was re-elected as chair with Councillor Nicola Dalton appointed as vice-chair. She succeeds Richard Beeby who recently retired from the council. It is expected that a new councillor will be co-opted at the next meeting to bring the team back to full strength.

 

Councillors discussed a projected clean up campaign to maintain the image of the village and looked at the siting of CCTV notification signs following the completion of the village camera system.

 

It was reported that permission has been granted for the continuing production of oil and associated gas from the Rempstone B Wellsite for a further five years.

 

The clerk presented the annual bank reconciliation which was approved by council.

 

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 4.

10/04/2017: Nottinghamshire Police have issued a warning following a series of distraction burglaries targeting homes across the county during the recent warm weather.

 

A total of 11 burglaries have been reported in similar circumstances since Thursday 6 April, with homeowners having been targeted after being approached by rogue traders proposing home improvement works. While residents have been in conversation, an accomplice has entered the property through unlocked doors or windows to steal items.

 

Chief Inspector Phil Davies from Nottinghamshire Police said: "It's only natural that people will be enjoying the recent fine weather - but it is so important that residents stay on their guard to avoid being targeted by would-be criminals. "Even if you're out and about in the garden, always keep windows and doors locked to deter opportunist thieves and never purchase goods or services from anyone who calls unexpectedly at your home. "We are also asking you to keep an eye out for vulnerable friends, family members and neighbours and warn them about these recent incidents to ensure they are doing all they can to protect themselves and their properties."

 

The latest series of distraction burglaries have taken place across the county in Aspley, Carlton, Mansfield and Underwood. Each report mentions a man in a white Ford Transit van approaching residents to suggest works to fix guttering. Up to three men are believed to have been involved in these incidents.

 

Anyone with any information about these incidents or who witnesses anything suspicious in their area is asked to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident 442 of 9 April. If the crime is in progress or the offenders are still in the area, call 999 immediately.

A year of highlights for Rempstone Parish and the community were the focus of the chairman’s report at the recent Annual parish meeting.

 

Presenting his report, chair Councillor David Walker  said it had been an outstanding year  for the Parish and its community. He focused on a number of initiatives including the improvements to heating and lighting at All Saints Church which are now in place and had cost in the region of £25,000.

 

The refurbishment and re-opening of the village pub, the White Lion thanks to the drive and enbthusiasm of a number of residents and associates had resulted in the pub being restored and once again becoming a popular venue.

 

Village Security has also been improved during the year with the completion of the CCTV project and a new Village Watch organisation established. This has also led to developing relationships with Wymeswold Neighbourhood Watch and other parishes to help share cross border information.

 

Rempstone has been actively supporting the establishment of the DNRC at Stanford Hall and the ongoing relationship has been strengthened with a fundraising event in the Village Hall which raised £1700 for the charity.

 

And the village hall continues to go from strength to strength.  The year has seen yet a further increase in usage and footfall for the sixth consecutive year.  A wide variety of village led events are run alongside private hire bookings.  Firm favourites are line dancing, pilates, film nights, coffee mornings the Village show and the more recently introduced table tennis and games  sessions.

 

A commemorative WWW1 event last July was particularly successful and led to coverage on BBC TV.

 

In the absence of County Councillor Andy Brown, a report from him was read out. It included mention of the increase in Council Tax by Nottinghamshire County Council which has been set at just under 5%.

 

This was the Councillor’s final report to the parish as after the forthcoming elections on May 4 there will be a new County Councillor due to boundary changes.

 

David Walker concluded the meeting with a presentation to retiring councilor and vice-chair Richard Beeby. Who has served on the Rempstone Parish Council for twenty years and was one of the founding group of the Village Hall committee which  steered the development of the new facility.

 

Councillor Walker said: “His dedication to attending every planning site visit, input at every level into the council’s activities and practical help to myself  as chair alongside the running of so many village  events has been invaluable”. It goes without saying that he will be sorely missed.”

 

A presentation was made to Mr Beeby  on behalf of the Parish Council and Village Hall committee.

Rempstone’s Royal Celebration

Villagers from Rempstone celebrated  the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen with a special tea party.  As representatives of the Queen’s charities gathered on a rather damp Sunday afternoon  in The Mall nearly 70 people  kept dry in Rempstone Village Hall for their own special tribute to the country’s longest reigning monarch.
The Hall had been decorated in  patriotic style and traditional afternoon tea was  accompanied by sparkling wine to toast Her Majesty and  not forgetting HRH the Duke of Edinburgh who also celebrated his 95th birthday the same weekend. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire is a multi-million pound partnership between the County Council and a range of funding partners including BT, Central Government, D2N2 Local Enterprise (LEP) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which is set to transform broadband speeds across Nottinghamshire.

 

 

This large-scale civil engineering programme builds on the commercial rollout of fibre-based broadband within Nottinghamshire (delivered by BT and other telecommunications providers), which will extend access to 86% of premises within the County by the end of 2014.

 

 

As a result of the Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire programme, 97% of Nottinghamshire’s premises will be able to access a fibre network, capable of delivering superfast broadband, by 2018.

 

 

We announced on the 22nd May the signing of Contract 2 which is made up of £2.63m in Government funding, with £2.63m from the D2N2 LEP Partnership Growth Deal and is targeting the more rural areas in the districts of Bassetlaw, Newark and Sherwood and Rushcliffe. These would have been the areas with the least coverage at the end of Contract 1.

 

 

In addition to Contract 2 we are pleased to announce that we have secured an additional pot of funding of £1.6m which will focus on increasing coverage in the areas of Newark & Sherwood and Bassetlaw. BT are in the process of modelling the extra coverage and in July we will be able to update the postcode checker to reflect this. It is also expected that in October we will be able to publish specific phasing information like we did for Contract 1.

 

 

The government are currently piloting a number of different projects with different suppliers across the country to identify the most efficient way in providing coverage for the hardest to reach parts of the UK. The pilots will run until March 2016. Further evidence and findings will be published during 2015 and 2016.
