Wychavon District Council News – Grab your Covid-19 vaccination this weekend

Grab your Covid-19 vaccination this weekend

A pop-up vaccination clinic is set to open in Evesham this weekend.

Anyone aged 16 or over who needs to have their first or second vaccinations, can Grab a Jab.

The walk-in vaccination clinic will be open from 10am until 5pm on Saturday, 25 September and Sunday, 26 September at Bengeworth Club in Coronation Street. There is no need to book or be registered with a GP, people can just turn up and have a vaccine. The vaccine being given will be Pfizer.

Public Health in Worcestershire, Evesham Volunteer Centre and Wychavon District Council are working together to make it easier and more convenient for people to get vaccinated.

The walk-in clinic is part of an ongoing initiative to give those who haven’t already had their first vaccination an opportunity to do so, as well as encouraging the take up of second doses.

Cllr Christopher Day, Executive Board Member responsible for Health and Wellbeing on Wychavon District Council, said: “Getting the COVID-19 vaccine will help protect you and your loved ones from the virus and help us continue our journey back to normality.

“I’m grateful to all partners and volunteers for supporting us to set up this ‘Grab a Jab’ clinic that will make it even easier for our residents to get their first or second vaccine dose.”

Dr Kathryn Cobain, Director of Public Health for Worcestershire, said: “We are so grateful to everyone who has got their vaccination so far. This is a really good opportunity for those who haven’t been able to get it yet to pop in and get their jab. COVID-19 is still in our community and getting vaccinated is one of the best things we can do to protect ourselves, our family and our community.”

Anyone unable to attend the clinic can find out more about the Covid-19 vaccine and how they can get it by following the links from the coronavirus page on our website at www.wychavon.gov.uk/coronavirus.

PINVIN SAYS NO! TO THE MUSHROOM FACTORY   MEETING THURSDAY 26TH AUGUST 7.30 PM Pinvin Memorial Hall

PINVIN SAYS NO! TO THE MUSHROOM FACTORY

 

MEETING THURSDAY 26TH AUGUST 7.30 PM

Pinvin Memorial Hall

There will be a meeting to discuss our response to the latest plans from Walsh Mushrooms.   We hope that everyone will come along.

The plans show that they have retreated just 40m from the village by slightly reducing the number of tunnels.  It will continue to have the same massive effect on the village, will still be too close to the schools (160m) and houses.  There is no change to the size and height of the tunnels, the lighting, the pollution and to the drainage of the site.  The traffic impact would remain as bad as we originally forecast.

 

More than £4.3million will be spent by Wychavon improving the energy efficiency of fuel poor homes across the district after several successful funding bids.

£4.3million for improving home energy efficiency

 

More than £4.3million will be spent by Wychavon improving the energy efficiency of fuel poor homes across the district after several successful funding bids.

 

Wychavon has received a share of £5.8million from the Government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund as part of a joint bid with Rooftop Housing Group, Trent and Dove Housing Group, Citizen Housing Group and Trident Group.

 

Some £3million of the money will be spent in Wychavon on installing energy efficient solar and solar thermal panels, external wall insulation and loft insulation. Work is being targeted at low income households in fuel poverty and homes with a poor energy efficiency rating. The rest of the money will be spent on homes in Staffordshire and Birmingham.

 

More than 260 properties will be improved in total saving households up to £450 a year on their fuel bills and helping to cut carbon emissions as part of Wychavon’s Intelligently Green Plan.

 

Wychavon has also received £700,000 from the first phase of the Government’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme. This money is being used to improve the energy efficiency of 155 homes across the district through the installation of solar panels, solar thermals and draught proofing.

 

Another £650,000 has already been pledged to Wychavon as part of the second phase of the scheme. The money will again be targeted at fuel poor households and details are being worked up about how the funding will be distributed to make the maximum impact.

 

Cllr Chris Day, Executive Board Member for Housing, Health and Wellbeing on Wychavon District Council, said: “I’m delighted we have been able to secure this money which, together with our partners, allows us to make a very significant investment in improving the energy efficiency of homes across Wychavon. This will help us to cut carbon emissions to support the fight against climate change, as well as save people money.”

Notes from the Zoom Meeting on 11th May 2021

Publicity photo shoot

The Head at the schools has agreed that this will be on Friday 21st May on the school fields.  We will meet outside the front of the school at 4pm.

We would like as many children as possible to come along to take part in the picture for the paper. We have ask that they are accompanied by their parents or a responsible adult.

We would also welcome as many residents without children as can make it to come along as well to emphasise that all the residents are making a stand against the Mushroom Factory.

Thanks to Alan for the idea of props such as mushroom that can squash as part of the publicity.

Consultant

Simon Rees has been engaged to prepare the representation of us and he will be working on that next week.

Crowdfunding

We have investigated crowdfunding web sites and have found that we will lose between 3% and 5% in charges, which for us is a lot money for no gain.  We would also only get the sums donated typically once a month!

It was agreed that residents would be happy donating directly to the Parish Council website, where the money will be ring-fenced for spending only on any further consultancy or legal fees that are agreed.  Any money left over and not spent will be returned proportionately to givers.

A note on how to pay will be distributed separately.
