Dear Neighbour, I don’t believe we’ve met...

My name is Kevin Jones and I own Colbert Garage, not far from where you live. We’re a family run business and according to some of our customers, a dying breed. We believe that our customers want to deal with people who know who they are and don’t treat them like they’ve never been seen before; a garage that understands what is important when it comes to fixing or servicing your car. Whether it’s essential you get it done quickly, so you don’t miss an important journey or meeting, or whether safety is causing you concerns. We enjoy getting to know our customers. We believe in being part of our local community, which is why we’d like to offer you a little something for when you next need your car serviced or fixed. Use it for whatever you like: labour, parts or an MOT – just bring it with you when you come in.

Volunteers Needed Castle Point Association of Voluntary Services Befriending Scheme

“In a society that is constantly changing and moving there are people that get left behind and find themselves unable to integrate, often spending days or weeks alone. You cannot underestimate how much it can mean to have someone visit for just an hour a week. It can quite literally change a life.” In April 2012 Castle Point Association of Voluntary Services (CAVS) were funded by the Castle Point & Rochford Clinical Commissioning Group to run a Befriending Scheme in the Castle Point area, (Benfleet, Hadleigh, Thundersley, Daws Heath, Canvey Island) for people who are lonely or isolated aged 18+. Such was the success of the scheme that the Castle Point & Rochford CCG have extended the Befriending Scheme into the Rochford area, (Rochford, Rayleigh, Hockley, Hawkwell, Hullbridge, Ashingdon, Stambridge, Canewdon, Wakering).

Befriendee Quote: The visits are going really well and I look forward to seeing my Befriender. I find her very easy to talk to and hopefully she feels the same. Her visits are helping me to realise how isolated I have made myself and I really hope that on future visits we can venture out to the local shops. From left to right ann-marie.fordham@ Vicky.pilton@ beverley.parrish@ castlepointavs.org.uk

12

The scheme operated by Castle Point Association of Voluntary Services has helped change the lives of many residents within Castle Point & Rochford who, for any number of reasons, have become isolated and lonely. GP surgeries across Castle Point & Rochford refer their patients to our Befriending Team who, having met with the client to ascertain their interests, match them with a like-minded, fully trained and DBS checked volunteer Befriender who will provide companionship, support and help integrate them back into the community. communit Family Mosaic is also funding CAVS to provide a similar scheme for their clients once their support has ended. If you can spare just one hour a week and would like to make a real difference to someone’s life, contact us by email or or phone us on 01268 638416, or visit the website at www.castlepointavs.org.uk

Essex Gardening Section 0

Healthy Soil Building healthy soil is one of the most important things you can do for your garden, and the soil in this corner of Essex can use all the help it can get. A healthy garden starts with healthy soil, you can spend a small fortune on plant food but if your soil is poor these expensive feeds have little or no effect. The very best way to feed your plants is by improving the soil. Good soil is a warm brown in colour, of a crumbly texture and have a rich smell about it, think of the aroma of spring in the woods, that’s the smell of good fertile earth. In our modern society we have an unhealthy dislike of creepy crawlies and bacteria but your soil loves and needs all of these things. When you get down and dirty with a handfork in your beds you should see a whole world of creatures, when you turn the soil you should see a generous amount of worms and other life, if these little critters won’t live in your soil you can bet your life plants won’t like it either. Now that Autumn is approaching if your soil isn’t all it should be you should be thinking about applying a good 3-4 inch Mulch, we use a very good Bark

Mulch on our clients gardens, the mulch works in 3 ways, firstly it acts as a slow release food, secondly it helps the soil to retain water which is very important for the sandy soil we are cursed with here in the Southend area and it also breaks down slowly to give the soil some fibre and also provides a home for the millions of microorganisms that your soil needs. Check out your local garden centre or B&Q/Homebase for small amounts of mulch or we can deliver Ton bags for larger areas, for a small fee we will place it in your borders too! This year don’t throw away all the leaves that you sweep up, place them in a black sack and put them behind your shed, next year once the leaves have rotted you will be rewarded with an excellent mulch for your garden free of charge. Until next time ...

How secure is your property at night? Before you turn in for the night make sure you check the bellow few simple things:1. Cars on the drive? – are the windows shut and doors locked? (don’t assume that by pressing the button on the remote it is locked, try the handle too) Remove valuables from sight. 2. Is the side gate shut and locked, sheds and garages secure? 3. Are all your doors closed and locked; don’t forget on that UPVC multi-locking door - you may have lifted the handle but until you turn the key on the inside you have not locked all the locks in place. 4. IF YOU HAVE AN ALARM, ACTIVATE THE ZONE FOR THE UNOCCUPIED AREA. 5. Don’t forget to check that patio door, someone may have closed it but did they lock it? 6. Ensure all accessible windows are closed and locked, if you live in a bungalow or have flat roofs in unoccupied rooms keep the windows closed

CASTLE

POINT

COMMUNITY SAFETY PARTNERSHIP

and locked but if you need a window open for ventilation in occupied rooms lock the big window and just have the small one open. If you only have bigger windows consider a lockable window restrictor or a small alarm sensor on the window to detect entry. Last bit of advice, going on holiday? Stop the milk and newspaper deliveries and look after each other, get a neighbour and/or friend to keep an eye on your property, ensure neighbours have contact numbers for a key holder and where possible let them park their car on your drive. Basically if you create the illusion that your house is occupied it is less likely to be broken into. Effective Crime Prevention is all about awareness and so if you would like any further advice, please contact myself on 101 Ext 490533 or 01268 798184 Emma Clark Crime Prevention Officer for Rochford and Castle Point Essex Police
