Property firm steps up to
help the homeless
Richard Mees and Tina Costello
A Henley-in-Arden property firm is to play a key role in helping
distribute £3.5 million donated to help vulnerable adults
Richard Mees, the managing director of land and development company Rainier Developments, is part of an
expert panel which will choose the three projects to receive the money.
The £3.5 million was donated anonymously to the Heart of England
Community Foundation, a grant-giving charity which distributes funds to
good causes across the West Midlands. The donor has requested the money
funds three projects which will create new or upgrade existing
accommodation for homeless and vulnerable people, each with a value of
around £1 million. Mees will sit on panel of industry
experts who will assess the
viability of projects on behalf of the Foundation before the final
selections are made.
He said: “We first met the Foundation when we donated a large
commercial kitchen which was in a building that we bought. I thought it
would be a simple donation, but the more I got to learn about the work
of the organisation the more impressed I became. It does some vital
work in really key areas of our region, and really connects the
corporate world with all areas of our communities. When its chief
executive Tina Costello approached me about this project, I was more
than happy to help, and to also recommend others in our industry who
can hopefully ensure that the money is directed to where it will do
most good, but also ensure the longevity of the programmes.”
the volunteering was another example of the business community in the
region giving back.
“Richard’s expertise, and those of the rest of the panel,
means we will
get first class expert advice which will save us thousands of pounds
money which will now go directly to the project. As with all donations,
we want to ensure we get maximum impact for the funds that we are
distributing and in this case we do not have the in-house expertise
from a property point of view, so Richard and Rainier helping out in
this way means we have total peace of mind that we will be backing the
projects which will bring most long-term benefit.”
Rainier is a privately-owned land and development company developing
both greenfield and brownfield sites throughout the UK, and has its
headquarters in the old police station at Henley-in-Arden. It is just
to start work on a scheme of 167 apartments on a landmark site on
London Road in the centre of Coventry.
Residents warned of Council
Stratford-on-Avon District Council
has issued a fraud warning after receiving reports from residents
getting cold calls or texts about a Council Tax rebate from individuals
who appear to work for the District Council.
The text often contains phishing links, which direct the recipient to a
website where they will be asked to provide personal data.
Cold callers claim to be from the District Council and try to gain bank
details by saying residents are due a Council Tax refund as their
account is showing a credit.
The District Council will never telephone, email or message to ask for
a payment to release a Council Tax overpayment.
If you do receive an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be
from the District Council, do not divulge bank or credit card
details – first obtain the caller’s name, then ring the
Council back on its main switchboard number 01789 267575 and ask to be
put through to the caller to confirm it is a genuine request.

Howse, Business, Tourism and ICT Portfolio, says: “Fraudsters are
relentless and will work tirelessly to find new ways to convince people
to part with their money. They will be particularly convincing
and provide good reason for why the person should make an immediate
payment. The District Council would never request money from
customers to help process any Council Tax refund.
“I would encourage people to be vigilant and never respond to
callers, who are simply trying to scam you. Never take up offers
of a tax rebate on the spot from cold calls or give out bank details."

Lions roar in front of a
Ladies VPs crowd.
Claverdon’s Luke Rogers struggles to get free of the visitors
Claverdon started with the sun in their eyes and playing up the hill.
James Williams kicked off the game deep into the Coventrians' half.
Coventrians started off by sending their forwards up the tight channels
but good early defending from Chris Glover and Colin Marklew kept them
pinned back, forcing the Coventrians fly half to kick clear.
Tom Johnson judging the wind well took the ball on and ran it back with
interest. Soon back in the Coventrians 22 the forwards rumbled the ball
up closer to the line with pressure building Clav were soon awarded a
penalty and were on the board. 3-0.
Coventrians only took minutes to level the scoring after kick the ball
deep into the Clav half and gaining a penalty in front of the posts. 3-3
Claverdon soon took control of the rest of the second half by playing
front foot rugby, strong running from Luke Rogers and new centre
partnership Sam Turrell and Jonny Grey linking up well in the mid field
allowed Claverdon to gain good territory.
With all the pressure piling on, Claverdon were awarded a penalty out
wide. Captain James Barton gave Williams the orders to put it in the
corner. With the line out functioning well Harvey Skinner gathered at
the top from Steve Grimsley. With the maul brought down the forwards
knew they now had to work for their try. A strong carry from Tom Hudson
left a hole for Rogers to take the next carry over the line. 10-3
With the half closing in Coventrians upped their game with strong
carries in the middle of the park. Coventrians former centre come
second row showed his power by sending his opposite man Skinner on to
his back and rolling backwards, much to the crowd's excitement! With
this on Skinner's mind he found himself taking 10 minutes after taking
the man past the horizontal at the next break down.
A determined Steve Grimsley pushes on for
Claverdon now really had to play
sensible rugby as they knew what they faced, down to 14 men and with a
tight score line.
Starting the half with a deep restart to James Kirby, the number 6 ran
the ball back with anger in his eyes. Bouncing of a couple of defenders
and off loading to Barton, Clav were on the front foot. With clean ball
for Jack Johnson the ball was shipped wide to Harry Nathan who used his
pace and quick feet to put Clav up to the Coventrians' 22. Substitution
Nick Green' carrying hard through the middle with support from
put Clav in the 22. New centre Alex Holden was next to crash up in the
centre of the park. After several picks from the ruck it was Barton who
wriggled his way through 3 defenders to go over for Claverdons second
Clav knew it was now time to pounce. The line out was functioning well
and the scrums were solid. From a scrum wide out, clean ball from
Johnson to Williams allowed Williams to put a well weighted grubber in
behind the defence for Turrell to run onto and score unopposed between
the posts. 24-3
Coventrians again sending the ball deep with the restart found
replacement James Riley. Riley showing his speed and power cut back in
field, after swatting several tacklers out of the way and gaining good
territory Claverdon were back into the Coventrians' half. Now working
well with ball in hand carries from Matt Warren and Josh Smallwood put
Claverdon on the front foot. Accurate hands from the back line allowed
James Gibney to go over for Claverdon's bonus point after electric pace
and a good hand off. 31-3
James Riley keeps on going
pressure was slowly getting to the Coventrians' pack and a late
charge on Johnson followed by a retaliation from Green saw Green and
the Coventrians player take 10 minutes.
Coventrians soon piled on the pressure and this showed with Holden
having to take 10 minutes following a number of pressurised penalties
in the Claverdon 22. With Clav now down to 13 men Coventrians opted for
the scrum. With 1 extra man and lots of field space they got their try
just wide of the posts. 31-10
With only 2 minutes left it was Coventrians who really upped the tempo.
Good ball retention strong carries and several penalties allowed them
to work their way back into the to Clav 22. Clav soon went down to 12
men with Kirby joining the others for a rest after seeing red mist and
entering a ruck from the side.
With a penalty 5 metres out Coventrians took the tap. The Coventrians
Captain taking it on his own and running hard was met by his opposite
captain Barton who shut the door on him. Setting up from this
Coventrians went blind only for the winger to by denied by Riley with a
big tackle into touch.
Man ofn the Match goes to Jack Johnson. The scrum half took several
hits from the Coventrians forwards but still distributed the ball and
call the shots to keep the forward in check.
