The Flyer 01284 774 778 Local Organisations Support Carers Week 2010 Crossroads Care West Suffolk is supporting this year's Carers Week (14-20 June) by joining with the Papworth Trust to organise a Tips and Advice Open Day. The event is taking place at West Suffolk Disability Resource Centre (4 Bunting Road, Moreton Hall Estate, Bury St Edmunds) on Monday 14th June at from 10 am to 3 pm. A number of local organisations will be there to give advice to carers on a wide range of topics including: benefits, employment, safety, respite care and many other issues. Family carers are welcome to come along with their questions and find out more about what help is available. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and carers will be on hand to look after the cared for person if required. There will be car parking in the Matalan car park. Carers Week highlights the vital work done by those who provide unpaid care for someone who is ill, frail or disabled. This year, the theme for the week is 'A life of my own' and calls for greater recognition of carers who all too often feel isolated and lonely. For more information about the events and activities taking place in Suffolk as part of Carers Week, visit www.carersweek.org or call 0845 241 2582.

Local Matters Local Matters with David Ruffley MP Florists

It is a great honour to have been elected Member of Parliament for Bury St Edmunds for the fourth time. I will continue to do my best for all my constituents, regardless of the way in which they voted on 6 May.

Wardrobe Fitters

One of my top priorities is to protect our local health services. I hope the Government will cut health body quangos and I will continue to call for the abolition of the East of England Strategic David Ruffley MP Health Authority. The resulting savings must be transferred to our local health service so key frontline services, such as A&E at West Suffolk Hospital, are maintained.

Plumbers / Gas Garden Services

Window Cleaners

I shall do all I can to support the local economy. That means supporting existing businesses but also doing everything possible to attract new businesses to Suffolk. I want to work more imaginatively with our local councils and agencies to support small to medium sized businesses, which will be the backbone of the economic recovery in our region. Rural businesses provide our villages with vital amenities. We need to create an environment in which they can thrive - in some cases with community involvement, a business model that is already proving successful.

Recruitment Other Services

The new Government faces many challenges. We have to accept that funding for local services is going to be tight. It is essential that we work together to squeeze every ounce of value out of the funding we have at our disposal. I pledge to do all I can to support my constituents throughout this new Parliament.

Travel Matters

Will Pickles Fix Our Jam? Last month I reported on the proposed 500 additional houses for Moreton Hall and the 1250 for Compiegne Way. Those and proposals for other sites have been submitted to the government who, in turn, sent a planning inspector to Bury to examine them. I attended the examination to fight the Moreton Hall corner and left feeling that I had probably been Cllr Trevor heard but not optimistic that anything would be changed. Depressingly, the Beckwith Taylor Wimpey representative challenged the council in only proposing 500 houses as he could see no reason why there shouldn't be many more. Of course, he's only answerable to shareholders and has no concern for anyone else. I suggested that if he wanted more to occupy his workers, they could set about getting what they have already built up to adoption standards. Latterly, there may be a glimmer of light in the gloom. I recently watched the Daily Politics programme on TV where Andrew Neil was quizzing Greg Clark, a local government minister, on the Big Society idea that government keeps on about. You know, the bit where we all count and will be listened to. A rather sceptical Mr Neil asked the minister what

would happen if, for example, the government wanted to build houses but the local community objected. The minister implied they wouldn't be built. All very encouraging I thought and decided to write to Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, suggesting that the Moreton Hall situation was a good chance for the Big Society to be seen to work. Here we have a council who couldn't care less about the impact on the existing 6000 strong community so maybe Mr Pickles would like to intervene. I await his response and will keep the Flyer updated. Any reasonable person can see that any infrastructure improvements to cope with extra housing will be impossible to attain. What can be done to the A14 junction? What can be done to Eastgate Street and Mount Road? In reality, nothing of any significance can be done so the impact on the east of Bury will be huge. Suffolk County Council has finally provided me with their possible solutions to make it all work. You will love this! They will encourage a modal shift from cars to public transport, bikes and walking. That should help when parents are trying to get to two different schools at the same time and then to work anywhere in the county or even further afield. They will discourage us from using the A14 for commuting from one side of town to the other. I wonder how; border posts? Well, here's one person they won't stop and I suspect there are many more. Now for the best bit. They could make use of the gadget that fits to buses that changes the traffic lights in the bus's favour. So, picture the bus, without too many passengers as they mucked up the routes last year, sitting in a mile long tail-back of single lane traffic in Mount Road and Eastgate Street trying to change the lights at Northgate Street. I suspect that there's no gadget on the market that will get that bus along any quicker. We are at the mercy of dreamers who fantasise about their car-free utopia and wall to wall housing. It really is a source of great comfort that my hard-earned taxes facilitate their freedom to dream while the rest of us suffer. Please, please, Mr Pickles; sort them out before it's too late. You are making all the right noises so let's see some action. Cllr Trevor Beckwith - Bury St Edmunds

Local Advice Sorting the 'Can't Pays' from the Won't Pays! Solicitors are often wrongly perceived as being expensive for debt recovery work. However formal letters of demand from a Solicitor will sort out the 'can't pays' from the 'won't pays!' Solicitors can issue proceedings to recover unpaid invoices, fixed costs and interest. Interest may be recovered at either the Court rate (currently 8%) from due date of payment, at your contractual rate in accordance Sarah Lock with your terms and conditions or under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) 1998. It is also possible to recover compensation under the Late Payment legislation. If your unpaid invoice is for more than £5,000 interest will continue to accrue post Judgment. If no response is received to the proceedings then Judgment will be obtained. A County Court Judgment is a Court Order for a fixed amount. The details of the Judgment are entered on to The Register of Judgments, Order and Fines. This information is then passed onto credit reference agencies, which will make it difficult for the debtor to gain credit in the future. Once obtained it is possible to issue one of the following enforcement proceedings:

Warrants - execution against goods - County Court bailiffs or the High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEO's) Charging order - placing a charge over the debtor's home or business address

Third Party Debt Order (formerly known as a garnishee order) - obtaining monies owed to your debtor from a third party

Order to Obtain Information - obtaining your debtor's financial details under oath

Attachment of earnings - debtor's employer pays regular instalments to you via the Court

An experienced solicitor will advise you on the most appropriate and cost-effective method of enforcement.

Hospice Update Hospice Update A sizzling fundraiser which aims to make this summer one big party has been launched by St Nicholas Hospice Care. The Summer Sizzle encourages people across West Suffolk to organise a fundraising barbecue, summer picnic or strawberry tea this summer and invite their family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues. Rather than bring a bottle - or indeed as well as - it is suggested guests bring a small donation to the Hospice. "Whatever you do, we want to know" Community Fundraiser Ian Norris, who came up with the fundraising idea, said: "Having a barbecue or a summer picnic is one of the great English traditions and we hope this will encourage people to hold a Summer Sizzle event in aid of the Hospice. "Maybe you can invite friends and family to a special World Cup barbecue or have a strawberry tea afternoon to celebrate the Wimbledon tennis tournament. Just a small donation from everyone attending can make a massive difference." The fundraiser was launched with a special barbecue in the grounds of the Hospice for staff, volunteers, patients and supporters. Among the attendees (pictured above) was Trish Muxlow, who is holding a barbecue as part of her plans to raise £10,000 in memory of her late husband, and Manju Agarwal who is organising a Mela, an Indian summer fair, complete with traditional food and Bollywood dancers. A special party pack has been designed by the Hospice Fundraising Team and is available for free by calling them on 01284 747624 or email fundraising@stnh.org.uk.
