Dads Army on parade

On Wednesday 12th October, the British Legion held a dinner in the Memorial Hall to celebrate VE & VJ days. Uniforms were hired for the evening by some members, with many attaining rapid promotion in rank in the process.

The entertainment was by Phil Chase, who gave a very enjoyable performance, many songs of the period, and many jokes, which went down well.

Les Goodman managed to obtain a lottery grant towards the entertainment, and towards the attendance of the Shirley Pipe Band at the parade and drumhead service.

New Sewers for Edge Lane

Severn Trent Water has agreed to install a £316,000 sewerage system to replace up to 11 septic tanks, which no longer function adequately in Edge Lane. The septic tanks will be replaced with new sewer pipes, connecting homes to a public sewer for the first time. And according to environment chiefs this will stop pollution in a nearby tributary stream to the River Alne, which is currently filled with waste.

Project manager, lan Woodward, said that by providing residents with a sewer, the problems would be solved." Effective sewage removal and treatment is essential for the health and well-being of our customers and the environment and we will be making sure the flora and fauna, fish and other wildlife are protected."

The work is expected to be completed by February next year. A section of Edge Lane will close for two months from November 28 and a diversionary route will be set up through Henley Road off Warwick Road. A section of Arden Road will be closed for two weeks from November 14 with diversions planned along Meadow Road and St Nicliol.is Road.


A Third of Electric Blankets Were Unsafe!

A Warwickshire County Council Trading Standards Service campaign to test the safety of electric blankets has revealed that overall, one third of the 533 blankets submitted for a free test were unsafe.

With the support of Warwickshire Library and Information Service and Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, free tests were offered to older people living in Warwickshire and in all 533 blankets were tested at locations across the county.

Most blankets failed because they had no overheat protection, (built in to more modern blankets to help prevent a fire if the blanket develops a fault whilst it is turned on), or because the wires within the blanket had become criss-crossed causing hot spots.

Results from across the county were mixed. In South Warwickshire at least four in every ten blankets tested failed whilst in Rugby and Warwick around one-third failed. The best results were to be seen in Nuneaton and Leamington Spa. In the former 28% failed whilst in the latter it was only one-quarter.

Noel Hunter, Director of Warwickshire Trading Standards said:“ This campaign seeks to rid Warwickshire of unsafe and dangerous electric blankets and we are delighted that so many older people took up the opportunity to have their blankets tested.”

The blanket tests, and any repairs, were carried out free of charge, and owners of condemned blankets received a voucher from ‘Dreamland’ entitling them to money off the cost off a new blanket.

Visitors to the electric blanket tests were each provided with a pack of information by the Consumer Support Network (CSN) a partnership of Warwickshire Trading Standards, Age Concern, and Warwickshire CAB’s. Electric Blanket Safety Advice

Faulty or damaged electric blankets can cause fires and it is therefore important for consumers to ensure that their electric blankets are safe.

Electric blankets sold in the shops are made to strict safety standards. But they wear with age - and what's more a not-so-old blanket can become dangerous too - and can even start a fire, if it is misused.

Those that were unable to take advantage of the testing programme can check their own blankets by looking for the following warning signs:

• the fabric is worn or frayed
• there are scorch marks anywhere
• the tie tapes are damaged or missing
• the flex is worn or damaged
• any connections are loose

Remember older blankets in regular use are much more likely to have one or more of the above faults.

Electric blanket safety advice and guidance is available by contacting Warwickshire Trading Standards Advice line on 01926 414000 or alternatively visit our website: www.warwickshire.gov.uk/tradingstandards and click on electric blanket safety.


Warwickshire Police to merge

Warwickshire Police is set to merge with three other forces to create a regional force for the West Midlands area. The new superforce would spread across four counties - prompting fears of job losses and fewer bobbies on the beat, especially in rural areas. It would result from the merger of West Midlands Police, Warwickshire Police, West Mercia Police and Staffordshire Police.

It is also hoped Coventry police and Warwickshire Police would amalgamate to become one force under joint operational command - as a subdivision of the new regional force. A Coventry and Warwickshire joint force is preferred because of existing organised criminal activity between the city and county. Much of the crime in Warwickshire emanates from Coventry and the West Midlands, say senior police officers. They claim a Coventry and Warwickshire force would also help "restore a traditional sense of community identity" in the area - carved up in 1974 when the West Midlands county was created.

The region-wide merger of the four forces is one of four short listed options drawn up by Warwickshire Police - the county's first response to an ultimatum from Home Secretary Charles Clarke to produce a merger options by the end of this month. The other options include a merger solely with West Midlands; or the West Midlands and one of the other county forces.

But the merger of the four forces is preferred by Warwickshire's Chief Constable John Burbeck, and the police authority, because it would be most attractive to the government. It would result in maximum savings in administration - which could be reinvested in NEIGHBOURHOOD policing. It would also enable the Coventry and Warwickshire merger.

West Midlands police chiefs are also said to favour the merger of all four forces.

Under the plans, Warwickshire would lose its senior officers, including its Chief Constable. Warwickshire Police Authority would also go, though it hopes to ensure the county's policing remains accountable to its local community. Hundreds of administration jobs at Warwickshire Police's headquarters in Leek Wootton are also at stake.

A final decision will be made by Mr Clarke next year and he has ordered Warwickshire, and all forces nationwide, to draw up merger proposals. Warwickshire and the other forces have until the end of the year to select their preferred merger option from their shortlist - and produce a detailed financial analysis of efficiency savings.

The government believes small shire forces such as Warwickshire - the smallest in the country with just 1,000 officers - are ill-equipped for 21st century crime fighting - including terrorism, and serious organised crime across local boundaries. Mr Burbeck sought to reassure the public over fears of a loss of bobbies on the beat, and any prospect of county officers being drafted to Coventry or Birmingham to fight higher levels of crime.

He said: "Our overriding aim is to continue to improve policing in Warwickshire. Whatever the shape and size of any new strategic force, local NEIGHBOURHOOD policing teams will remain at the heart of policing in Warwickshire."

Phil Blundell, chair of Warwickshire Police Authority, said: "We don't yet know the shape of any new strategic force in the West Midlands, but we are committed to ensuring Warwickshire retains control over the policing budget for Warwickshire to preserve local accountability."


Fresh Bard claims rubbished

New research suggesting the real Shakespeare was in fact an unheard-of English aristocrat called Sir Henry Neville has brewed up a tempest amongst Shakespeare Birthplace Trust chiefs who claim the evidence is ridiculous.

Two leading academics claim in their new book, The Truth Will Out: Unmasking the Real Shakespeare, that some of the greatest plays and verse in the English language were written by the little-known Elizabethan courtier and that Shakespeare was merely a frontman.

But Professor Stanley Wells, chairman of the birthplace trust and leading Shakespeare authority, told the Observer that fresh claims about the Bard's authenticity were simply an attempt by authors to get ten minutes of fame and that there was much ignorance surrounding what people consider evidence.

The controversial book, published on October 25, claims the so-called real Bard - Henry Neville, nicknamed 'Falstaff' by friends - was more likely to have written works such as Hamlet, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet because he was a better educated man of culture, a courtier and a well-travelled linguist, whose life mirrors the evolution of the Bard's works so precisely that authors believe it cannot be dismissed as coincidence.

Prof Wells confessed to never having heard of Sir Henry Neville before the new book but explained there were huge gaps in its apparent revelations.

" It is nonsense to say when Shakespeare left school he was uneducated. His education may have been limited but it would have been very intense - with detailed study of classic subjects like Latin," he said.

" Suggesting he knew nothing about travel is also quite ridiculous. We don't know if he went abroad or not but he would have met many travellers while working in cosmopolitan London and, in any case, his geography was sometimes inaccurate. He quite often referred to places like Rome romantically rather than in specific geographic detail."

Prof Wells added that continued speculation into the Bard was a cultural phenomena that flew in the face of considerable evidence.

" It is really ridiculous but this has been going on since the mid-19th century. There is a certain snobbery in people's unwillingness to accept that someone of humble beginnings could have created Shakespeare's works and their desire to disprove him is a lot more to do with money than actual evidence."


RSC REVEALS PLANS FOR NEW THEATRE

ARCHITECTS have unveiled the focus of the multi-million pound redevelopment of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The findings of a design study made public reveal basic plans for the huge theatre facelift for the first time. They announce the focus will be on improving the areas surrounding the world-famous RST building, while updating its auditorium to retain important original features and expanding the use of RSC premises across the town.

The feasibility study, led by top architects Bennetts Associates, looked into every key area surrounding the redevelopment plans and will now be used as a baseline to draw up outline designs, expected early next year. It establishes that the RSC's needs can be met by using the entire RST site as well as the Union Club in Chapel Lane and existing workshops and offices between Waterside and Chapel Lane, the proposed thrust-stage auditorium can be accommodated between the existing fly-tower and art deco foyers with new foyer and other audience facilities accommodated by adapting the building on the western side of the current RST, adjacent to Waterside, and that the architecturally significant exterior and interior features of the RST, features campaigners fought hard to save from demolition, can be preserved and enhanced.

And at the heart of the study is an emerging proposal to open-up the theatre and its surrounding areas, creating a more welcoming place for both visitors and local people alike. The concept centres around plans to improve the public spaces, gardens and pathways around the theatre and along the riverbank in conjunction with the Waterfront Masterplan, currently being drawn up and debated by both Warwickshire County Council and Stratford District Council.

Plans include more visible entrance on Waterside for both the Swan and the RST, an improved and expanded shared foyer space for the two theatres, a new public courtyard on Waterside, new pedestrian routes around the transformed building including a renewed and level riverside walkway, better restaurant, cafe and other audience facilities and the development and extension of the Union Club site to provide improved and extended space for rehearsal, learning, production workshops and offices.

And while the transformation requires some accommodation to be added to the existing theatre buildings, RSC chiefs have promised the project will enhance many of the original elements of the theatres, including the 1930s art deco foyers and fountain staircase in the RST and the Swan Gallery from the original Victorian Memorial Theatre.

RSC Chairman, Sir Christopher Bland, said: "I am absolutely delighted with the work Bennetts Associates have done so far with the RSC team, which has the enthusiastic support of the entire Board. They have demonstrated that it is possible to transform the existing Royal Shakespeare Theatre in a way that marries the best of the past with our ambition to create the finest modern playhouse in the world for Shakespeare."

SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT

Offenders jailed
Two Romanian men who were involved in a scam to clone credit cards by fitting a false front to a bank cash machine in South Warwickshire have been jailed for three years after being caught red handed in Studley.
Both offender/s, from the Bordesley Green area of Birmingham, pleaded guilty at Warwick Crown Court to conspiring to steal from bank cash machines.
The scam involves offender/s building a complete fascia to fit over the front of the ATM cash machines, which looks like the original. Inside this false fascia is a device that reads the magnetic information from any card put into the machine and feeds that information back to a computer, usually situated in a car parked nearby.
The scam requires offender/s to target well lit cash machines so that specially positioned cameras can record the customers pin number as it is entered.
The information from the card is then used to create a cloned card that can be used, together with the pin number, to get cash from machines or buy items from shops or over the Internet.
The two offenders, in this case, were caught after two local people were suspicious about what they were doing and called the Police.
Officers arrived on the scene and following a short pursuit the offender/s were arrested.

Wedding Shop Break
One man from the Redditch area was arrested yesterday (13th October) on suspicion of the break in at a bridal shop in Studley. Police enquires into the incident are still ongoing.

Warning letters, Anti Social Behaviour Orders and Acceptable Behaviour Contracts
In the Alcester sector, since May 2005, ten warning letters have been issued in Henley in Arden, eight in Tanworth, one in Bidford and thirteen in Lower Quinton.
Acceptable Behaviour Contracts have been issued to three people in the Studley area, three in the Alcester area and one in the Bidford upon Avon area.
Anti Social Behaviour Orders have also been issued to one individual in the Alcester Area.

BE AWARE

Alerts from Trading Standards

Bogus Email
Consumers are warned to beware of a new scam email. The email says that the recipients credit card account has been temporarily locked and that the recent online credit card transaction involving a Mr H Wall was therefore not authorised. The email will have been sent to many thousands of people in the hope that some of those who read it will have recently made online credit card purchases. Anyone tempted to click on the link provided on the email risks exposing their computer to viruses. Further, the email will also request personal and financial information as well as asking the recipient to confirm their bank details, and if obtained this can lead to identity theft.

Consumers should delete unsolicited (or spam) email immediately and not be tempted to open it or follow any links. In addition, never provide your personal or financial information.

Red Cross Scam
A local resident reported receiving a call from a man who said he was working for the Red Cross and was collecting for charity. He asked her for her bank details and she signed what appeared to be a direct debit form, although she was not told how much she would be paying. The caller was very pushy and told the woman that all her neighbours had already signed up.

Investigations revealed that the Red Cross are not knocking on doors and asking people for money. Never provide your personal or financial information. The Police have been advised.

Please feel free to pass on the information to whom ever you feel appropriate. We are keen to alert as many people as possible
