Summer 2013 news update from Tina Combellack.
Every second counts when someone has a serious illness and simple interventions can be performed by CFRs to save lives or prevent disability.
The Vale is quite well served by Vale First Responders – we have 10 defibrillators across the Vale and we respond to about 20 calls a month, some of those in your village. EMAS will mobilise whichever responder is able to get to the scene first. With more Responders based in Kinoulton, we could do so much more as we are less well represented in that area of the Vale, and end up travelling from neighbouring villages to an incident scene. We are a friendly bunch of people just like you, so don’t be shy, think about having a chat with us.
The Commissioner and the Chief Constable are currently setting up a joint audit panel for which they are seeking five members, hopefully professionally experienced independent people with relevant experience of strategic planning and risk and performance management.
Click here for a press release which give a little more detail and which you could use to publicise the positions in your area.
Further information and application forms are on the website http://www.nottinghamshire.pcc.police.uk/About-Us/Vacancies.aspx
The closing date for applications is 17 May.
Who can be a Police Cadet?
Nottinghamshire Police are looking for 16-year-olds living in Nottinghamshire to serve as Nottinghamshire Police Cadets. We are particularly interested in encouraging applications from under-represented and minority sections of the community including; black and minority ethnic groups, disabled people, and those from the LGBT community. We are also interested in those young people who live in areas of disadvantage and those who may be on the cusp of criminality.
This year, Hickling Country Fair takes place on Sunday 9th June.
Last year nearly £14,000 was raised towards the new toilet block with disabled facilities for the Village Hall, Rainbows Hospice in Loughborough and village groups despite the bad weather.
See the Hickling Country Fair advert for more details.
Hickling Pre-School would like to say thank you to all of those who helped to make the Jumble Sale on Saturday 20 April such a great success.
The Jumble Sale raised over £530!, money that help to keep this much-loved and vital community resource open.
Following the success of the courses held in Kinoulton last year and Hickling earlier this year, the Parish Council are considering arranging a further session to be held this summer. To enable us to gauge interest, please let Anne Tillotson know if you would like to attend (email@example.com / 81829).

Spring and summer 2013 news update from Councillor Tina Combellack.
This Nottinghamshire County Council backed scheme will help you:
- Save money on your gas and electricity bills.
- The easy way to switch suppliers.
- No risk – no obligation – no cost.
The scheme brings people together to pool their buying power. Energy suppliers are invited to offer a special discount deal to the scheme members. The best deal is then offered to all members who switch to that supplier. By pooling your buying power with other people, you could save up to £200 a year on an average bill of £1,300.
