Community News Hajj package tour fraud
By KarenB – October 15, 2012 Birmingham News Room
Birmingham Trading Standards have won two prestigious awards for their work on Hajj package tour fraud. The City Council received awards from the Association of British Hujjaj for outstanding achievement and commitment towards community service. A second award was given to an individual officer.
Birmingham’s Christmas Markets Open for Business Festive frankfurters, hot Gluhwein and sweet pretzels return to the city this week as Birmingham’s Christmas markets open for business. Stretching for more than one mile from the Bullring all the way to the ICC in Centenary Square, Birmingham’s world famous Frankfurt Christmas Market, and adjoining Christmas Craft Market, will feature 190 stalls. The largest authentic German market in the world, outside Germany and Austria, the market attracts three million visitors from all over the UK and Europe, on average, and brings an associated spend of £90million.
Sajeela Naseer, Head of Birmingham City Council Trading Standards, received the award on behalf of the team. Mohammed Tariq, was presented with an individual award for his outstanding dedication and commitment to community service. Mr Tariq was the principal officer driving forward Birmingham’s strategy for tackling rogue package tour operators. Birmingham City Council has successfully prosecuted package tour operators for misleading and defrauding consumers in supplying Hajj and Umrah packages. The Trading Standards team has achieved significant fines against fraudulent operators, and a 15 month custodial sentence. The team has also instigated legal proceedings against several other tour operators.

Your City - Your Future Get ready to give us your views on city spending plans Planning Birmingham City Council’s Business Plan and Budget for the next financial year – April 2013 to March 2014 – is underway and, with the country still facing severe economic challenges and a continued squeeze on public sector funding, we are once again seeking your views on our proposals. Two years ago the Government announced it would be reducing grants to local authorities by more than a quarter over four years, giving the council a major problem as these grants contribute around £650 million a year to the council’s budgets. Significant savings have been made already to this challenge, with targets, rising costs and demand pressures. Some £275 million has been saved for 2011-13. But this means that there are still tough choices to be made next year and in the years ahead – such that further savings of more than £200 million will be needed over 2013-15.
In making these saving choices, the council’s priorities will be:
To tackle inequality and deprivation, promote social cohesion across all communities in Birmingham, and ensure dignity for our elderly and safeguarding for our children. To lay the foundations for a prosperous city, built on an inclusive economy. To involve people and communities in the future of their local areas and their public services: a city with local services for local people.
Detailed draft proposals will be published in December and residents will be able to put forward their comments, views and suggestions from December to January – see below for how to get involved. Find out more: •
• • •
Details of all the ways in which you can have a say on our budget plans will be available in December on the council’s website at www.birmingham.gov.uk/budgetviews You can come to one of the public meetings we will be holding around the city in December – check our webpage for details of a meeting near you. You can also email : Budget_Views@birmingham.gov.uk Or you can send your views by post to: Budget Views, Room 127, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham B1 1BB
Local policing news from Small Heath West Midlands Police YouTube tops 2-million views Online audiences are tuning in to West Midlands Police’s YouTube in their droves with the number of ‘views’ the channel’s notched up now topping the 2,000,000 mark! This year we’ve featured dramatic car pursuits, raids, quirky items like our Pup Idol series, firearms training and interviews with senior officers, plus police footage showing how we’ve captured offenders and uncovered hauls of stolen goods. The channel has also played a key role in fighting crime and catching criminals as CCTV footage of suspects uploaded to YouTube – and signposted to via other social media – has repeatedly led to officers receiving nuggets of new information.
(57,338) • M6 wrong way lorry driver jailed (41,097) • Pup Idol part two (35,940) • Canal jumper fined after falling on his face (32,778) • Air operations at Blues vs Villa (28,544) You can tune in to our YouTube channel by visiting www.youtube.com/westmidlandspolice How to contact your neighbourhood policing team There are several ways in which you can find out who your neighbourhood officers are and how to contact them. Always dial 999 if life is in danger or a crime is in progress.
Many suspects have been identified and arrested as a result of responses to YouTube videos. The most popular video is our own version of Cash in the Attic with footage showing one-million pounds in used notes hidden in a loft in Stechford being watched almost 330,000 times – that’s a combined view time of 19 days and eight minutes! Around 1.3-million views are from UK-based browsers but the channel is also popular in the USA (165,000 views), Holland (40,000 views) and Canada (34,000). We started using YouTube in July 2008; we’ve uploaded more than 260 videos and at the last count have 1,116 subscribers. Here are some of our most popular videos: • £1-million cash found in Birmingham loft (327,830 views) • Shots fired at police officers and helicopter (189,695) • Police chase getaway driver in 180mph Audi RS5

Tackling drug crime in Birmingham Last month we told you about Operation No Deal – our campaign to tackle drug dealing across east Birmingham. The operation has now led to the sentencing of 30 drug dealers across Bordesley Green, Small Heath, Stechford, Washwood Heath, Alum Rock and Yardley. 28 of these individuals are now behind bars with combined sentences of over 105 years. Residents in Small Heath and surrounding neighbourhoods told us that drug supply and use was a major concern for them and something they wanted us to focus on. To show communities what we had achieved together, on Saturday 13 October we brought a Digivan to the streets of Small Heath, Bordesley Green and Birmingham city centre. Did you see it in a street near you? The Digivan displayed pictures of the men who have been sent to prison for drug dealing along with the length of the sentence they are serving for their crimes. Most people we spoke to that day really agreed with our ‘naming and shaming’ approach and welcomed such a visible deterrent to other would-be dealers. We cannot tackle drug crime effectively without your help. If you suspect drug crime where you live, you can report it to police on 101. Alternatively, if you do not want to talk to the police, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers will not ask for your details.
Darker nights are here ….. If you’re not in, don’t let everyone know!
With the clocks going back this weekend and many people now returning from work after dark, we are urging our communities to keep home security in mind at all times. House burglary is down by 16 per cent – or 2,989 safer homes - in the West Midlands compared to the same period last year - but we mustn’t be complacent. Traditionally, the onset of darker nights sees a rise in reports of burglary and while we work hard to put burglars behind bars, it is vital that householders also take simple steps to protect their home. An inexpensive timer switch for your lights for example, is an extremely effective burglary deterrent as it appears you’re at home even when you’re not.
Other simple burglary prevention tips include: - Use door and window locks, even when someone is at home. - Cancel newspapers and milk if the property is left unoccupied for a few days. - Keep your shed and garage locked to ensure that garden tools can’t be used to break into your home. - Don’t leave keys in hiding places such as under doormats – it’s the first place thieves will look. - Property mark your valuables and register them for free at www.immobilise.com - Join your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme or start up your own if there isn’t one in your
Buy a new home with just £7,175! Crest Nicholson is encouraging people hunting for their first home in Birmingham to visit its Park Central development for a special open day next month. Open to everyone, the open day will be held on Saturday 17th November and will give people a chance to ask questions about the government’s equity loan scheme, FirstBuy. The initiative – which is available on all the homes at Park Central – aims to get thousands of first time buyers on the property ladder. Under FirstBuy, purchasers will own 100 per cent of their home for just 80 per cent of the price. Crest Nicholson, together with the Homes and Communities Agency, offer a loan of up to 20 per cent of the full purchase price with the purchaser contributing a five per cent deposit. The equity loan is interest free for the first five years, then in year six an interest charge of 1.75 per cent is payable. The interest charge will then increase annually by RPI plus one per cent from year seven. A stylish two bedroom apartment at Park Central can be purchased for just £114,800 under FirstBuy, marking 20 per cent off the £143,500 list price. The five per cent deposit payable on this property stands at £7,175 – a significant saving on the average deposit in the UK which is now in excess of £25,000. Located just off Lee Bank Middleway in Birmingham city centre, the stunning apartments at Park Central are surrounded by eight acres of landscaped parkland. Each property boasts double bedrooms and two bathrooms, alongside designer kitchens and a spacious balcony – not to mention allocated parking. To find out how you could move into a new home at Park Central pop along to the open day between 10am and 5pm. Alternatively, visit the marketing suite on Spring Street, Birmingham B15 2GD or call 0121 666 4666. parkcentral.co.uk

The main role of the kidneys is to filter out waste products from the blood before converting it into urine. Kidney disease is a long-term condition where the kidneys do not function normally and are unable to filter out the waste. The condition can often be caused by high blood pressure or diabetes.
idney disease is more common in the south Asian ethnic group who have higher rates of diabetes and people with African or Caribbean backgrounds where higher blood pressure is common. Symptoms of kidney disease often go unnoticed in its early stages as we are born with a lot more kidney function than we need for survival. Signs of any changes to the kidneys are usually first detected through a blood or urine test. The main symptoms of advanced kidney disease include: •Tiredness •Swollen ankles, feet or hands •Shortness of breath •Nausea •Blood in the urine Many of these symptoms can be avoided if treatment begins at an early stage. Those with advanced kidney disease have an increased risk of having a stroke or heart attack because of changes to blood circulation in the body. The condition can also lead to kidney failure where the usual functions of the kidney stop working altogether. This function may then need to be replaced artificially through dialysis or through a kidney transplant. Although it is not possible to repair any damage to the kidneys, it does not mean the disease will get any worse. Following advice given by your GP on treatment for blood pressure and other conditions, it is possible to live without symptoms of kidney disease or further deterioration. You can also reduce the chances of developing kidney disease or chances of the condition getting worse through lifestyle. Look after your kidneys by: •Not smoking •Maintaining a healthy blood pressure by eating a healthy diet (avoiding added salt) and exercising regularly •Reducing the amount of cholesterol in your diet •Keeping your blood sugar levels under control if you have diabetes.

Heartlands Hospital consultant Dr Philip Dyer gives advice on kidney disease.
Heartlands medics take to the floor to raise awareness about diabetes With the region topping the tables with the highest rates of diabetes in the country, especially among ethnic minority groups, medics from Heartlands Hospital will be hitting the floor to raise awareness during World Diabetes Day. In a bid to reach a wide range of communities in the local region, the team of specialists will be offering advice on the symptoms and treatment of diabetes to passersby in the main entrance of Heartlands Hospital on Wednesday 14 November. Dr Sri Bellary, Clinical Director for Diabetes said: “There are nearly 3 million people with diabetes in the UK and this figure is likely to increase further over the next few years. Those of south Asian ethnicity are up to six times more at risk of diabetes than their white European counterparts. Increased genetic predisposition, lower levels of awareness, lifestyle differences and cultural factors are all thought to contribute to an increased predisposition towards diabetes among the south Asian population.
hose with diabetes are up to three times more at risk of developing heart disease. They also are more susceptible to having a stroke, blindness, lower limb amputations and end stage renal disease. However, the risk of diabetes and its complications can be reduced significantly through improved lifestyle habits and good control of risk factors and regular medical treatment. This is why it is so important for us to work with the community to educate and advise on how diabetes can be prevented and kept under control.”

Be a flu fighter Seasonal flu is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It occurs every year, usually in winter and is not treatable with antibiotics. Flu can range from having symptoms similar to a cold. These include: • Fever • Chills • Headache • Aching muscles • Cough • Sore throat Some people are more susceptible to the effects of seasonal flu. For them it can increase the risk of more serious illnesses such as bronchitis and pneumonia, or can make existing conditions worse. Vaccination is given to help protect people who are more at risk. This includes being over 65, suffering a heart condition, breathing problems or from liver disease. All pregnant women are invited for a flu jab too, you can contact your GP for further information. Local supermarkets and pharmacies also offer the jab to anyone who would like one for a small fee, so if you are not in the ‘at-risk’ classification, you can still get yours.
Alternative A&E Remember to choose well this winter before you visit your local emergency department. NHS walk-in centres have a host of GPs and nurses ready and waiting to see you, with less waiting time than your local hospital A&E. You can also make an appointment with your GP or call NHS Direct which is available with advice 24 hours a day on 0845 46 47. Heartlands Hospital is part of Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, which also runs Solihull and Good Hope Hospitals and Solihull Community Services and is one of the top five employers in the region.

Has Christmas become a gadget laden commercial frenzy? I suspect most of us will want to combine some elements of faith, family, friends and fun, to make the most off the festivities where possible. But, it’s worth remembering that electronic toys usually need batteries and in an increasingly hi-tech world, gadgets such as mobile phones, games consoles, laptops and tablet computers need plugging into the mains electricity or recharging. Sadly, It’s still not unusual for people to remove the batteries from their smoke alarms often because the batteries could be used in a child’s toy or because they (smoke alarms) go off during festive cooking Meanwhile, careless use of electronic equipment can cause fire These are just two of the issues for people to consider over the festive season. Group Commander Jon Waterman, head of Community Safety for West Midlands Fire Service said: “Christmas is a time for celebration. West Midlands Fire Service wants everyone to enjoy the festivities whilst staying safe throughout the holiday period – and that includes being responsible on the road as well as minimising the risk of fire and keeping warm.”
Festive fire safety tips include: • Make sure you have a working and correctly fitted smoke alarm on every level of your home and never be tempted to remove the batteries to put them in a new toy or gadget, or because the festive cooking sets them off. • Make sure you have a well practiced escape plan in place so you know what to do in the event of a fire and if you have people staying overnight, make sure they know the lay-out of your home so they can get out if there is an emergency. • Never leave cooking unattended • If your clothes catch fire, stop whatever you are doing, then drop to the floor and roll until the flames are extinguished. • Always turn the Christmas tree lights off before you go to bed or when you leave your property. • Never use lights that are damaged. • Never use lights outside which are designed for internal use only. • Never leave burning candles unattended and do not put them near the Christmas tree or other decorations that could catch fire. • Test Christmas lights before putting them on the tree and make sure they are fused properly. Switch them off when you go out or go to bed. • If you or your festive guests smoke, make sure there are plenty of suitable ash-trays to allow for the smoking materials to be properly extinguished. • Do not smoke in bed or late at night when drowsy, especially if you have been drinking • If extra electrical appliances are to be used, do not overload plug sockets. Remember: one socket, one plug! And always make sure cables are fully unwound • Wrapping paper and packaging can build up and create a fire risk – try to dispose of this as soon as possible.
