Holderness Community Partnership – Update July 2012

HOLDERNESS COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP update issued to HU12 Online from the Partnership meeting held on July 26th 2012.

Key items of interest from the meeting:

Humberside Fire and Rescue

Arson in Withernsea
The Community Partnership is involved in coordinating a multi-agency response to this issue in certain streets in the town. The aim is to deal with the issue in the short-term and develop sustainable long-term solutions working with key partners in the town.

Humberside Police

Inspector Mark Coulthard gave the following update by area:

In Mid Holderness the police are targeting the villages along the A165 corridor from Leven – Coniston. Following a spate of offences, residents are being urged to report any suspicious people or vehicles using the non-emergency 101 number.

South West Holderness has seen an increase in criminal damage – with 7 offences in Hedon last month, patrols will focus on ASB taking place in the market place, which often leads to criminal damage.

North Holderness priority is anti-social behaviour and crime prevention. Tescos in Hornsea has been targeted by shop lifters.

Voluntary and community Sector

Rural transport issues
Angela Wilkinson from the Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council (HWRCC) gave the partnership an update on local transport issues. The main emphasis of the discussion was that if a service is being withdrawn there are lots of other ways of sorting out transport for what may be a very small number of people.

There is a parish transport toolkit currently in development, to be used if your community loses a bus service, to help you come up with a viable alternative. An information sheet (PDF file) compiled by HWRCC accompanies this update.

Health and Wellbeing

Mental health
Mind is running a Reach Out Project which covers Withernsea, Hedon and Hornsea to support people with mental health issues. The project includes social groups and development courses.

Community Engagement
The Holderness Community Partnership attended the Withernsea Festival on Sunday 5th August 2012, to hear your views on local issues and public services. A ‘Tree of Ideas’ was run from the police events vehicle.

Date of next meeting
The next meeting of the Holderness Community Partnership will take place on Monday 10th September, 2pm, Aldbrough Village Sports Hall.
