Pride in Braunstone Community clean up


The NMB update

T

he latest meeting of the Neighbourhood Management Board (NMB) discussed the following items: Braunstone Bonanza Support for the event was pledged and the weekend went well although visitor numbers were low which could be due to a number of factors. Residents Network Committee The Resnet have decided to revamp the Braunstone Awards this year and are in the process of sorting out a new venue and theme. Two trips have been organised so far this year and the garage sales are going really well. Local support is being felt through the amount of donations coming in. Braunstone Foodshare Minister Mary Burgess is retiring prompting the committee to look at the current viability of the service. All distribution at URC and Brite Centre, ceases at the end of June and members will be required to attend Wellinger Way to pick up their collection. A new referral system will be in place which hopes to support people away from the need to use food banks. Clean Up Campaign The campaign is going well and there have been several pop up clean ups with dates and venues being available in the Alert. Six streets are a particular problem and we are looking to engage with PA Housing formally ASRA. Further clean up dates are planned and will be published in the July/August Alert. Braunstone Blues The Blues are beginning an evaluation process and would welcome feedback on how their service has impacted on local people. Life Skills training will also be offered to local people very soon. Power to Change Update A recent application has been made to the lottery funded ‘Empowering Places’ programme, the outcome of this should be known sometime in June. The funding would see the set-up of a community business which has been suggested by local residents. Children’s Centre news Rowley Fields, West End and Braunstone Frith Children’s centres will be closing due to cut backs, although Gallards Hill Centre will remain open.

I

t’s been yet another busy few months and the Resnet team have been busy preparing for the summer. The garage is bustling with donations, so much so that we have had to slow down on the number of donations that we are receiving! We are thinking of having a big sale soon, so watch this space. The Matlock trip on the 17th of June was well attended and everybody enjoyed a fantastic day out in the glorious sunshine, it was the perfect weather for an ice cream and taking in the beautiful scenery! Our second trip of the summer to Drayton Manor is now fully booked and we look forward to welcoming you on board the coach as we embark on yet another fun day out. We are also very excited about the new look Braunstone Awards! We are currently booking some great acts for the evening entertainment, don’t forget to get those nominations in for your local unsung heroes of Braunstone. You can find a nomination slip on the back page of the Alert. Alternatively you can nominate by calling The Neighbourhood Support Team on 0116 2232256 or by emailing ali.gamble@b-inspired.org.uk

NMB Housing Update

T

he former housing office on Guthridge Crescent is being auctioned off and the new outreach service at Brite Centre is proving successful and popular. A free phone is available at Brite Centre to book appointments with housing staff or the income management team. Bridges House will be having its communal room decorated this year and the conversion of 3 bed houses to 2 bed houses is helping smaller families stay local. Suggestions for further environmental schemes are welcome and these can be shared at Brite Centre any Monday when the housing team are available for general enquiries. The recent ‘Pride in Braunstone’ campaign has highlighted particular litter hot spots within the six streets area of North Braunstone. Residents report that they find it very hard to report problems to PA Housing and that there is a long backlog of repairs. Local Councillors and other board members reported “a real difficulty” in contacting the housing association.

Braunstone History Group

raunstone History Group's last Exhibition unfortunately was not the huge success we expected as only Twenty people attend. However, the twenty that did attend were extremely interested and interactive. Feedback suggests that we do not hold our Exhibitions in the evening or on weekends. The reason for this is as Braunstone Hall Stables Museum is the property of the Parks Department, they can only open up for us during their normal working hours (except for special occasions like the Bands in the Park). Last year we did hold an Exhibition about local schools at the Brite Centre but again not very well attended even though we had advertised it extensively. The Braunstone History Group always take on board what our visitors say and we recently received one comment about the lack of school photos from the 70’s and 80’s. So if anyone has any photographs from this era that they would like to share, please feel free to bring them along with you to our next Exhibition on Sunday 16th July from 12 noon until 4 (the Enderby Concert Band will be playing in the Walled Garden from 3 till 4). We can scan your photos on the day and give you the originals back. We look forward to seeing you all at the next Exhibition. Written by Geraldine Syrett, Braunstone History Group.

B

ands in the Parks returns for 2017. From May to September parks across the city play host to live bands playing a genre of music from jazz to brass and everything in between.

Friends of the Highway Spinney

T

he friends of the highway Spinney recently enjoyed a bird walk and were very pleased to have a total of 9 participants including some familiar faces and new faces join the walk too. Everyone had a great time exploring the Spinney, noticing the difference that Storm Doris has had. During our bird walk we saw a pair of courting Greater Spotted Woodpeckers. We even got to hear the Woodpeckers drumming in search of food within the spinney. When drumming they can tell which wood is soft on the inside where there maybe insects which they can extract with their sticky tongue. Other birds we saw included the wren who is our 2nd smallest bird, Song Thrush, Robin, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Collard Dove and a Nuthatch. We also heard the Green Woodpecker and the Black Cap and as the walk came to a close we even saw a Buzzard take off from the path! The Friends of the Highway Spinney will be hosting a Fungi Walk in September, look out for details in the next edition of the Braunstone Alert and come along!

Stay Safe and Healthy This Summer

I

t′s summertime once again and as temperatures rise and the days get longer, we all want to get out and enjoy the sun. Whether you’re off to the beach this summer or just planning on spending more time in your garden here are some useful tips to help make your summer the best, and healthiest one yet. ● Avoid being out in the sun when the sun is at its strongest between the hours of 11-3 ● Take care not to burn - Cover up with suitable clothing using sunglasses and a hat to shield your eyes and face. ● Use at least factor 15 sunscreen ● Take extra care to protect babies and young children ● Keep an eye on isolated, elderly, ill or very young people and make sure they are able to keep cool ● Don’t leave pets in locked cars Heat related illness such as sunstroke can occur over the summer but a few simple tips can help you prevent any risk of becoming ill over the holiday: ● Drink plenty of water or other non-alcoholic drinks ● Wear lightweight loose fitting clothing that are light in colour ● Reduce any strenuous activities to cooler parts of the day ● If you suspect you are suffering with sunstroke you can seek medical advice by calling 111 or visiting www.nhs.uk/nhs-direct Remember to also take good care of your home and belongings over the summer. A few simple steps can help prevent any unwanted attention from opportunist thieves: ● Lock any unattended windows or doors ● Keep garden equipment safely stored away in a shed overnight ● Avoid leaving valuables on show in cars ● Avoid putting your plans on social media The Alert would like to wish everyone a fantastic summer. Why not check out the ‘What's On’ section on page 13!

Braunstone Foodshare is changing‌ Family bags

W

hen Braunstone Foodshare first opened its doors more than five years ago, we hoped to work with the supermarkets to intercept food that would normally go to landfill, this food was then shared out to anyone who signed up. We never imagined that the need for foodbanks would increase so dramatically and we have seen a rapid increase in the number of people coming to us in desperate need. This has meant that we have had to make some difficult decisions and Foodshare will no longer be open to everyone. Also, we will only be distributing from the Neighbourhood Support Base at 45 Wellinger Way. Under the new system members will be asked to come for a confidential chat where we will offer information about other charities and advice services. Our aim is to try and support people better, so that they can eventually move away from using the service. From Monday 3rd July 2017 – United Reformed Church & Brite Centre members will be moved to the new venue. Each member will be given a day and time to come and will be informed on what type of membership they have. Note* If you are new, you can come to the centre any day to sign up (you will be given an appointment) or you can call us on 0116 2232256. Members at St Peters will remain collecting there until September, to help with the transition. All members will be notified of any changes in advance.

PAUL PENDER AND SON Independent Funeral Directors Renovating the former Shakespeare Braunstone Lane, Leicester , Leicestershire LE3 3AS - 0116 289 6608

A

fter spending almost 8 years at Westover Road, Braunstone Town, much admired Funeral Director Paul Pender and Son are moving to a new larger premises with much more to offer to assist bereaved families. Paul’s new site is the former Shakespeare Pub and will feature three chapels of rest with one larger chapel which will be suitable for providing on-site personal funeral services. In addition to this, Paul will be offering in house wakes for those smaller congregations whereby sandwiches, cakes, tea, coffee and refreshments will be served from the bar area. Paul explained to the Alert Team just how he has created an all inclusive service having access to the well established Buds Floral Designs and access to a Stone Mason which will assist bereaved families and help them ease the burden of a loss. Extensive work has gone into carefully restoring the former farm house that was built back in 1655 maintaining its historic charm. Paul said “I didn’t want to change the place, I just wanted to put it back to how it was repairing its original features and replacing new for original as it would have been back then”. The grade II listed building has been a shadow of its former self for many years but has now found a new lease of life being beautifully restored to its former glory by Paul Pender and his Son, Jack. Paul has now made the Shakespeare his home. The new Paul Pender and Son funeral home is looking to open in late August although, local families are already requesting that their loved ones leave from the new premises as they make their final journey. To mark the launch of the new premises Paul, his son Jack and the dedicated team at Paul Pender and Son would like to invite the community to take a look around the funeral home during an open week commencing on the 21st August 2017. This will give you the opportunity to explore the new Shakespeare site and the many services available.


The City Festival

News from the PPG

he summer holidays are something almost every child looks forward to. Long, hot days of freedom stretching out for weeks on end with none of the stresses that school can bring. For parents however, it can be difficult. Even if you are fortunate enough to be able to take time off from work to be with your children, finding ways to occupy them is another matter entirely. If you do find yourself at a loose end, why not try the Leicester City Festival? Now in its fifth year, the festival offers a wide range of entertainment for people and families of all ages. In previous years there’s been a variety of different acts on show, including music, theatre and dancing. Events will be taking place across the city, from the 12th to the 28th of August. For more detailed information, you can visit their website:

he Patient Participation Group (referred to as PPG) at Hockley Farm Medical Practice has recently been involving itself in training to help us help the Practice and Patients deal with the changes coming about in the procurement of services in the NHS. We hope to be involved in taking surveys and consultations with patients as we find out what the changes are and how our Practice is affected by these changes and responsibilities as they become clearer. We have had some training about what to consider when approaching patients for information and opinions, so we hope to be trying our training out on our Patients in the future. So if you see us at the Surgery or at another event, please take the time to answer a few questions. Also, if you you want to get involved with what we are doing for the Practice and Patients, please pick up an application form, from the Surgery’s Reception desk, fill in your details and leave it with them and we will contact you soon.

Braunstone Slimmer's donate to Cancer Research

G

enerous slimmer's in Braunstone have been donating the clothes they’ve slimmed out of to The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw in support of Cancer Research UK. The Blessed Sacrament Slimming World group have collected over 100 bags of the clothes, shoes and accessories from members who slimmed out of their old wardrobes and feel confident they’ll never need their ‘before’ clothes again. With each bag worth around £25 to the charity. The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw aims to increase awareness of how keeping a healthy weight helps reduce the risk of developing some types of cancer. It is hoped the event will smash this years target and raise £3 million for Cancer Research UK. Consultant Karen O’Brien who runs the weekly group in Braunstone, is proud of her members’ fundraising efforts. She says: "The members never fail to amaze me with their weight loss results week after week and it has been great to see so many bags of clothes donated through The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw. See Alert Gallery for picture!!

Volunteers make good - Community makeovers

I

n May, b-inspired joined forces with Leicester City Council in their 2 day Volunteer for Good environmental project to encourage people over 50 to volunteer. Green fingered volunteers gathered on a gloomy wet day in Braunstone to get to work transforming previously unloved planters around the estate that had sadly become over grown. A team of volunteers gave the Wellinger Way garden a makeover, clearing weeds and rubbish, clearing unused planters and planting new flowers to give the garden a new lease of life adding some all important colour. The work didn’t stop there though, as yet another team of volunteers were hard at work. Volunteers worked together with the residents of Sandyhurst, transforming there unloved flower beds into a vibrant welcoming array of blooms. Volunteers even found themselves getting involved with creating a veggie patch too! Simultaneously at the other end of Hockley farm, volunteers were transforming previously unloved planters that had sadly been overcome by weeds and taking part in some gorilla gardening. The following day saw the fifth site of Braunstone Community Primary School get a makeover. Volunteers worked a patch of unused land ready for the Growing Communities together team to plant potatoes with the coming week. For more information on how to get involved with Growing Communities Together contact b-inspireds Neighbourhood Support Base Team on 0116 223 2256 or email anne.short@b-inspired.org.uk

Dear Alert, We are writing to you to tell you of the fun we had at the b-inspired garden makeover day at Sandyhurst Residential living accommodation. It was great to see so many people coming together to makeover the garden. We all had a laugh as we dug, planted and potted up, it was lovely to meet new friends. We even had a giggle playing in the puddles! Since the makeover we have completed work on our vegetable plot sowing a variety of different vegetables alongside the potatoes we planted on the day. We look forward to getting out in the garden more this summer! Thank you to everyone who came along to help us, Margaret and Sheila Dear Alert, We went to Matlock Bath for a day trip organised by the residents network and we had a fantastic day. We walked many miles through the town and parks and had lovely fish and chips and ice cream too. All in all it was a wonderful day and can we please have it again as soon as possible. Thank you to all involved especially Joy and Jan for their bingo & quiz on the coach! Love Dot Hewerdine and Bill Vickers

THANK YOU! The b-inspired team would like to say “Thank you” to Mick Adams (pictured) also known as Tele Mick for his continued support to Braunstone Foodshare!!

-

Dear Alert, I would like to say a big thank you to the pride in Braunstone Community Clean-up Campaign volunteers and staff for all the hard work they are doing tidying up Wellinger Way. They have spent many a day now cleaning up the area after people are still insistent on dropping there rubbish in the street despite of the campaign. Can we please as the campaign says take more “Pride in Braunstone” and put our rubbish in the bins provided!! Anon
