Neighbourhood Watch

Warwickshire Police are now utilizing a new community messaging platform called Warwickshire Connected.

This platform enables us to connect and engage directly with our local communities by sending a quick message to all members.

All members of the public are able to sign up for free on the website or download the app for real-time free alerts via email so you can find out what is going on in your local area and keep up-to-date with issues.

You will also have the ability through this platform to contact your safer neighbourhood team directly.

Honiley Ultrafast Community Project

We have been working with Dan Howell to get what is known as a Community Fibre Partnership scheme set up with Openreach for the purpose of bringing ultrafast broadband to some residents and businesses within Honiley and we were wondering if it would be possible to put something on your website to publicise this?

Through our work with Openreach, other suppliers such as Glide and DCMS (Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport), we have identified around

80 residential and business properties within the Honiley area who have not yet benefited from such an upgrade and who are eligible to claim the Gigabit Broadband Vouchers – https://gigabitvoucher.culture.gov.uk/ to help offset the cost of the upgrade.

Openreach have provided a quote for how much the scheme will cost and now that it has been approved by DCMS, they have set up a pledge site at https://www.openreach.com/connectmycommunity where residents and businesses can pledge their support. Instructions for how to do this are attached above. I have also attached the list of eligible properties for reference (though you will obviously not be able to publish these on your website).

However, due to DCMS’s decision to close this scheme early, eligible residents and businesses only have until 1st March to pledge their support for this scheme so we are trying to publicise this as much as we can to get as many voucher pledges in as possible before the cut-off date.

We hope that this is something that you will be able to support us with for the benefit of local residents and businesses within Honiley.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

AED – Defibrillator location

AED – Defibrillator is located at Wren Hall. 

Every year, over 30,000 people in the UK suffer a cardiac arrest out of hospital. Having a defibrillator nearby can increase the chance of surviving by up to 90%.
To support the local area and it’s community Wren hall now has an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) mounted on the external wall adjacent to the entrance door. Hopefully you will never need to use it but it’s important that you know it’s there!
