Residents’ Network

Y

our residents’ network is the eyes and ears of Braunstone. We chat with friends and neighbours where ever we meet and talk about what should be changed, repaired or provided for us in Braunstone. You can tell us your ideas and we tell the people who run the services. We are involved in lots of activities in the area. Recently we helped in getting some young trees planted along Braunstone Avenue, a beautiful sight when they are in leaf. We have conducted a survey of traffic turning out of Gooding Avenue on to Hinckley Road. We also have plans to support our carnival, bonfire and other events. We think they are fantastic and for everyone's enjoyment. With your help we can keep them going. Already in the pipeline we have quiz nights at the Shakespeare Inn, textile collection so we can sell the material and a Holistic Therapy Day to have your bumps felt and aura read! We are open to more ideas and help with our plans - come and join us. Resident Geoff Stagg told us, “I am concerned about litter and recycling, so I wandered along to a residents meeting to see if I could be of any help. Well, that was three years ago and I am still with the Residents’ Network. I love it.” Geoff is now chairman of the Neighbourhood Management Board, working with local services to improve things in Braunstone. You can join us - an hour or two can make such a difference to you and your neighbourhood. Contact us through the Neighbourhood Support Base, 45 Wellinger Way.

Get Snapping! “What Braunstone Means to Me” is the theme of a photographic competition coming your way. Jill Willis of the Leicester & Leicestershire Photographic Society wrote, “The competition is for any Braunstone resident.

Your Own A-Team!

W

e asked for volunteers to join the Alert Team and had a good response. The volunteers tell the story better… “Well, here we are, six keen Braunstone lasses, training to help produce the Braunstone Alert. There’s lots to learn; how to listen (not easy) and how to get a feel for a story. We take many notes, (that we sometimes can’t read back) and are helping each other to arrive at some interesting conclusions.” “We have lots of laughs together and use our different skills to make up a whole picture. We are learning to use notes and photographs to create interesting stories about Braunstone. We want to help others to have a bright, fun look at local life and the Alert is just the way to do it!” “The Alert is all about people you know, your community, kindnesses , Linda, Lizzie, Lucie, Joy and Eileen and achievements and services available to you. It’s all told in words Antonia and pictures. We are learning how to type up stories, add colour, photos and clip art for you to read and enjoy… and some of us don’t even know how to use a computer yet!” “The Alert is about the good things that happen here and our pride in our close knit, friendly community. We all agree that it inspires us. We hope that with our involvement it will be easier to produce the Alert and that people will read it, enjoy it and talk about it everywhere.” Paddy said, “The course is great fun, with a lot to learn and plenty of hard work. The team has risen to the challenge. Everyone is full of enthusiasm and energy. They really are the A-Team and they love it when a plan comes together!” Anne Short, said “It’s great having this opportunity to train local residents on how the Alert is done from start to finish and from their article above we feel that we have got real talent joining us. Our thanks to Leicester Adult Skills and Learning Service (LASALS)for funding the course.”

Viva Volunteering

Volunteers on Course

laire MacKay loves volunteering at Braunstone Surestart. We visited her at work, where she told us, “I’m supporting a group of women from the travelling community, who have been on courses here.” She introduced us to Sinead, Seline and Chantelle, young women who live on the Meynells Gorse site. Claire said, “We’ve had lots of different trainers providing a range of courses. The women have already done short courses in cooking and art. Now they are doing nail art.” Trainer, Jen Bickerton said, “These courses are called ‘She Styles’. They help the women express their creative side.” Sinead, Seline and Chantelle were busy painting beautiful decorations on false nails. Chantelle said “The best thing is the ladies here, they’re friendly and very nice… you feel welcome. I like the nails best and I’d do a beauty course if there was one.” Sinead’s and Seline’s faces lit up when Claire mentioned the chocolate cake they made in one cooking session. Claire hopes they can find funding for similar courses later in the year. She added “More people should volunteer. I think its the best thing ever. It helps other people but its good for me too. I’ve got NVQ training, I feel useful and my son gets the benefit from the centre. It’s good for everybody!”

urestart has many volunteers helping provide services to local children and their families. Recently, twelve new volunteers started on a course to build their skills. The course covers Braunstone, Rowley Fields and West End. Subjects are Confidentiality, Health and Safety, Equal Opportunities and Safeguarding. Cherie Lewin said, “It’s a great opportunity for people to learn new skills and get work experience that can help with jobs opportunities in future. I started as a volunteer and now have a job as Business Support Officer.” Rachel Howard is Supporting Families Manager. She told us, “I’m really passionate about volunteering. It’s how I started work.” Programme manager, Kim Harris said that everyone does the same training. She added, “They learn together, challenge themselves and each other. They learn about our range of services, and decide where they want to put their skills into practice. They have three months in any situation, then they change so they can try new things and find out what is best for them. We don’t want to limit their experience or ambitions. Later there will be opportunities for accredited training.”

Sweet Charity

W

e are happy to announce that b-inspired has now become a charity. Does that mean more money in the pot for Braunstone? We asked Angie Wright to tell us more. Angie said, “BCA has changed to The Braunstone Foundation and intends to carry on helping to improve Braunstone. The Foundation is made up of local residents, a ward councillor and a representative from LHA-ASRA, formerly Leicester Housing Association”. “We still provide support for finding jobs, increasing opportunities for sport and activity… and of course, our community support work. Another good change is that the Braunstone Foundation with the help of volunteers can be involved in street collections and fund raising events. It can be hard work finding funds for things like Bonfire Night, Carnival and community clean-ups, so the more people involved, the better.” Angie added “We have lots of ideas for new ways we can raise funds for the community and put on events that residents can enjoy while doing their bit.” “The Foundation has also set up a Neighbourhood Action Fund. This does exactly what it says on the tin and will fund action for positive change in Braunstone. In a nutshell, it means that becoming a charity allows us to carrying on fighting the good fight so that Braunstone can continue to blossom.” The Braunstone Foundation trades as b-inspired.

id you know there’s a free bus service for older or less mobile Braunstone residents? One Thursday a month the Omnibus takes them to the library, so they can pick up books. An hour later it drops them back home. But in that hour something special happens, thanks to librarian, Sharon. Sharon has organised a regular friendship morning for the group. She said “On those Thursdays I make cakes and get the kettle on for tea and coffee. I could just let them pick their books and wait for the bus, but I love seeing the smiles on their faces. We have a friendly gossip and we all love a good banter and a laugh. Some of these library bus users are housebound and only get out once a month. Sharon said “These are our people and I just want to make things nice for them.” Sharon has another simple but effective way of helping older residents. “Someone told me they were confused by their new mobile phone, so I showed them how to use it. That’s become a one-to-one training session. Last September the Link magazine advertised the session for Older People’s month and people came from all over Leicestershire to learn how to use their mobiles. The offer is still open!” Another librarian is following the example. Sharon said “Alison heard of a woman who was injured and couldn’t get to the library. She asked what the woman wanted to read, and delivered the book on her way to work. If one of our regulars doesn’t turn up, we ring to see if they’re ok. These things make people appreciate the library. Some of the library group told us they love the company and seeing new faces on their visits, adding that Sharon was “…brilliant, kind and helpful!” the lting consu of years after ents ovem impr Park Car So Sharon has worked to create a welcoming and fun community, especially around Woodshawe Rise, we now environment. Did we say that she provides the cakes and have a design and an estimate for the work. The bad news refreshments at her own expense? Well done Sharon! is that we need £40,000 on top of what we’ve got! If you want to make a donation to help us turn our unsightly car park into a pleasant local amenity, then please drop e hear that plans for the future of Braunstone Hall into the church or ring the vicar are moving forward.

We wish him well…and yes, we miss him! in late December. We have received two bids for the Hall, Chris Burch (vicar) 0116 289 3377 and have asked the bidders for plans and budgets by the www.stpetersbraunstone.org.uk end of May for assessment. We rejected two bids for the land, because they were a long way off the valuation. However there have since been four more approaches to buy. So, overall there is progress!” big Well Done to our Ali who has joined a support group to help her stop smoking. We’re all behind you, mate! Cllr. Cooke will keep us up to date with news about the Hall and we will keep you informed of developments.

Housing News

W

e had a housing update from the Guthridge Crescent team. “We identified eight 3-bed properties for conversion into 2-beds with upstairs bathrooms. Two conversions are already finished and we will tackle the others as they become void. This programme is helping us fill the demand for 2 -bed properties on North Braunstone. Once completed the properties will have better bathroom facilities and we are able to make the old downstairs facilities more useful to the tenants.” “As we said last time, we have five Estate Management Officers (EMOs). Now they have had time to settle in, they are organising their estate inspections. Each of your EMOs is responsible for a ‘patch’ within Braunstone and they have divided their patches into six zones. They will inspect one of these zones every month. This means they will cover the whole estate every six months. They will be more focused than the previous patch-walk system and the EMOs will spend more time out and about on the estate. We will soon publish details of the inspection so you know when the EMOs will be in your area.” “We are pleased to say that we have restarted the ‘Looking Out For You’ programme. This involves our staff visiting older tenants and making sure that we are aware of their needs and giving any support we can. It is also a chance for us to update our records by collecting information at a friendly home visit. B-connected, Neighbourhood Support staff are working with us on ‘Looking Out For You’ visits.” “More good news is that the underpasses will receive a much needed face lift. The underpasses, on Gallards Hill and Bendbow Rise, have become increasingly scruffy over the years. Housing Manager, Ellen Watts, has worked with Highways, ward councillors and Neighbourhood Management to resolve the problem. She is happy to announce that funds are available to improve the underpasses. The facelift will include upgrading the lighting and fixing the walls. It will help make the environment more attractive for Braunstone residents.”

Natalie’s Back HA’s Natalie Robertson was a familiar face on North Braunstone some years ago. Now she’s back, and wrote I to us, “I am really glad to be working in Braunstone again. in ct had the pleasure of working on the Six Streets Proje 2004/05 and very much enjoyed getting to know some of you. I am now one of the Service Delivery Managers for LHA-ASRA, managing two front-line teams, one of which covers Braunstone. The teams include housing officers, area surveyors, income officers, caretakers and administrators. A few weeks ago the local team was out door-knocking on the Six Streets, asking our tenants what we could do to improve our services and the estate. Thank you to everyone who took part and helped us to develop our local action plan. The key areas we will be working on over the next year are: Ÿ improving our communication with our tenants Ÿ improving our repairs service Ÿ building our relationships with partner agencies Ÿ community consultation about the Webster Road play area Our Housing Officer for Braunstone is Jessica Ferguson, who r is spending time each week on the estate. The Income Office all for pays is Jemma Ritchie who ensures that the rent which of our services is received. Jemma also supports tenants with financial matters. We look forward to getting more involved in the community again over the coming months.”

id you know that not attending a doctor’s appointment can affect other people’s health? Lorraine Baker contacted us from the Hockley Farm Practice. She said, “We have a Patient Participation Group that meets to discuss how to improve our service. The group is concerned about the number of patients making appointments but not attending. We call these DNAs. In November and December we had 219 doctors appointments and 346 nurses appointments missed. That was 135 hours of staff time that could have been spent on other patients.” Some patients who were unable to get an appointment travelled to the Leicester Royal Infirmary and waited to see a doctor. This is obviously inconvenient and avoidable. We could have had medical staff available if people just phoned to cancel and let us allocate the time to other patients. So please, if you can’t attend your appointment, let us know.” Mother’s Day Special Sunday Carvery 3rd April £7.80 per person children’s meals from £3.95 Braunstone South Premier Inn Narborough Road 0116 263 9200

Sgt. Will Says

W

e contacted Sgt. Will Cheshire to get the latest news from the Braunstone Local Police Unit. He wrote back, “We’ve entered into a new year since my last report in the Alert. I thought it would be a good idea to look at 2010 and see how we worked and the impact on the crime figures. Last year we were very proactive, working with other agencies to improve Braunstone and tackling the concerns raised by the people of the area.” We kept up our efforts to be involved in the community; this meant attending lots of community meetings and carrying out many street consultations. We wanted to find out what the issues were and how they affected the residents and visitors to Braunstone and Rowley Fields. As a result, we identified some key problems and then created three Problem Solving Plans (PSPs) to tackle very specific issues. These were occurring at Blossom Road, Arden Terrace and Bendbow Rise. Work is still ongoing to deal with the problems in each area. You can find regular updates on the Leicestershire Constabulary website, under the Neighbourhood Policing Section, or in the Neighbourhood newsletters. However I am glad to say that the incidents in all three areas have dropped since we started the PSPs. Our team had the support of many agencies including Leicester City Housing, Riverside Housing, B-Inspired, Leicester Anti-Social Behaviour Team, various youth groups, local councillors and the Braunstone Alert team. These groups and others have worked with us in one form or another to support the people of Braunstone and Rowley Fields. To them I wish to say a big thank you for their commitment and continuing support. In relation to the crime figures, I am pleased to say that we recorded a reduction of 35.5% in crime across the Braunstone and Rowley Fields area, compared to the previous year’s figures. I hope that in 2011 we continue to see reductions in all aspects of crime. I believe that these figures reflect the hard work and dedication shown by all the parties involved. To finish, I want to wish everyone a belated happy new year and I look forward to working with all of you again throughout the rest of the year.

best way. Thank you so much to everyone who was at the Braunstone Awards night. Everyone was so nice to me and made me feel like a little star! A big thank you to Cpt. Benner of B Squadron, The Royal Yeomanry, for making a special trip just to present me with the Braunstone Community Trophy which I couldn’t believe I won. And thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who nominated me. The Braunstone community have been amazing with all their support and it has made me think about how I could maybe help other charities this year. I can’t make a difference on my own but with everyone lending a hand, who knows what’s next? Thank you again. Love from Alex Windram (age 9)
