Subject: Invitation to Norfolk and Waveney STP event on 7 March 2018

Dear Jane

Sarah and I met you last December at the event we held about the Norfolk and Waveney STP in Great Yarmouth. We wanted to let you know that we’re holding an event in Beccles on 7 March, 2.00pm – 4.30pm.

It will be similar to the events held before Christmas – it will include a short introduction to the STP (from Antek Lejk and Patricia Hewitt), followed by sessions on primary care and acute services. You are very welcome to attend, although you may not feel it would be a good use of your time given that you attended the Great Yarmouth event before Christmas.

You can find out more about the event and sign-up to come along here – https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-future-of-health-and-care-services-in-norfolk-and-waveney-tickets-42313072539?utm-medium=discovery&utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&aff=escb&utm-source=cp&utm-term=listing

please feel free to share this email with anyone who would be interested in coming along.

Many thanks

Response from Connor Rand  Regional Organiser,

East of England Labour Party: -

The process of seats selecting a Labour Party Parliamentary Candidate is the property of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party (a body representing all parts of the Party with spaces directly elected by members, affiliate places and so on). Once they give the go ahead seats can start the selection process, and at this point we will be in touch with those seats concerned. So far they have decided that our most marginal seats, with Tory majorities of less than a few thousand or so, can select their candidates and some of those have started this process with the rest to be completed by the spring. After this, it will be up to NEC to decide which further seats can select and when.

 

Thus, people are welcome to ‘chase up region’ but there is no prospect of it changing anything.

 

Best wishes,

 

Connor Rand

Following two distraction burglaries in the county last week, Officers are asking residents to be mindful of security and how to deal with unexpected callers at your doorstep.
 

In both recent distraction burglaries, the offenders knocked at the doors of elderly people saying they were from their water company and to turn their water off. The offenders then entered the homes and items inside were stolen.

There are some simple security measures everyone can take to help stop you from becoming a victim of crime and we would ask that you speak with your elderly/vulnerable relatives and neighbours to also make them aware -

  • Always use a chain and a viewer on your door to see who is calling. Only open the door if you feel comfortable and always keep the chain on.

  • Always ask for identification from any unexpected callers and do not let them in until you are completely comfortable with who they are and have verified who they work for.

  • If someone calls claiming to be from a utility company such as water, gas, electric or council do not let them in. Close the door and ring your utility company using the telephone number from a recent bill or from the phone book/internet and not a telephone number that might be on their caller’s ID badge. Only once you are completely happy that the caller is genuine should they be allowed inside your home. If you have any suspicions at all, phone the police immediately.

  • Councils and utilities companies will generally contact householders in advance by letter or telephone if they plan to carry out repairs rather than make unsolicited calls.

  • If you have a back/side gate to your property, ensure it is locked with a padlock. A slide bolt is not sufficient on its own.

  • Ensure that your doors are kept locked when you are inside the house.

  • If you need carers or family to have access then consider fitting a key safe on the outside wall near to the front door.

  • Please report anything suspicious as soon as possible to police on 101, if a crime is in progress please dial 999.
