Cllr. Dr Ken Pollock is inviting applications for support from his Divisional Fund.

Worcestershire County Councillor – Cllr. Pollock’s Divisional Grant Fund.

Cllr. Pollock is inviting further applications for support from his Divisional Fund!!

This is £10,000 of your council tax money that is left for him to allocate to worthy causes benefiting the division – but not exclusively to be spent within the division.

All allocations for the last 8 or 9 years can be viewed on the website, from which you may learn that many small organisations and clubs have benefited in the past, and he is keen that the most-worthy should benefit in the future.

As a principle, he would prefer to offer no more than £1,000 to any one cause, and the money should not ordinarily be for a continuing commitment as opposed to buying new kit or materials or allowing a one-off event.

FREE Property Security Marking Event on Abberley Village Hall Car Park on Saturday 14th September from 10am to 12pm.

The shared community safety service at Malvern Hills District Council working with Abberley Parish Council and Abberley Neighbourhood Watch are offering a free property security marking event for the residents of Abberley parish which will be staged on 14th September 10am to 12pm on the village hall car park. In case of inclement weather Abberley Village Hall has been booked.

Everyone is invited to bring any small items including Laptops, mobiles, gaming consoles etc. Or any Larger items including ride on mowers, trailers, push mowers, bikes, power tools, gardening machinery (Strimmer’s, trimmers etc) to be property marked.

Property marking is a proven preventative method of reducing acquisitive crime. Furthermore, if items are ever stolen, they will be permanently marked in a way that they won’t be able to be sold on legitimately and they can get back to their rightful owners. Additional security Advice will be provided regarding home security and when out and about, we will also have some demonstrating products (Shed alarms, window alarms, etc.) at the event to show what is available and where they can be purchased (we sadly can’t sell any at the event).

Worcestershire County Council – Community Solutions Fund

COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS FUND
Worcestershire County Council has set up a Community Solutions Fund in recognition of the important roles played by parish and town councils, the voluntary and community sector, partners and organisations in supporting local communities to come together and do things for themselves.

Please Note: The closing date for applications is 5pm on 8 September 2019.
Community Solutions Fund

We are all aware local authorities have ever decreasing spending power. The ability to grow community capacity and enable individuals, families and communities to do more for themselves is vital if we are to realise the aspirations for Worcestershire outlined in the Corporate Plan – Shaping Worcestershire’s Future.

Act Local – Worcestershire’s Vision for Localism continues to promote cultural change – new ways of working and new ways of thinking
• communities – less reliant on the Council to solve problems or issues, and taking the initiative to do this for themselves
• partners – encouraging and promoting a response where the local community takes responsibility
• councillors – embracing their community leadership role and using self-service options – the support available will change as the Council changes
• officers – responding to Councillors and communities, developing new skills and supporting Councillors and communities

We recognise the important roles played by Parish and Town Councils, the Voluntary and Community Sector, partners and organisations in supporting local communities to come together and do things for themselves; taking control of improving the quality of life in the places where we live.
In order to help achieve this Worcestershire County Council has set up a Community Solutions Fund.
