Have Your Say On Community Safety In Warwickshire

Local residents and businesses are being asked for their views on community safety in Warwickshire to ensure the right services are being developed to help make people feel safer and secure.

An online survey has been developed to give people across the county the chance to feed back to a range of organisations – local councils, fire and rescue, police, probation, health and third sector – who work together to address community safety through the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board.

The survey is likely to take 15 minutes to complete. To take part in this important survey, please visit: https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk/

News, Rugby Borough

Foodbank update

Rugby Borough Council has reached an agreement with the Rugby Foodbank to take over the operation of the food bank.

The agreement comes after the food bank had to suspend its operations due to the impact of the coronavirus on their volunteer base and the need to maintain social distancing to keep volunteers and public safe.

Rugby Foodbank have kindly donated their stock which allows the council to start distributing food with no pause in services.

The council will operate the warehousing and distribution of food packages until the food bank is able to return to normal operations.

Diana Mansell, Chair of Hope4, said: “I am sure that our supporters will be so pleased that the council have stepped in when we just could not continue. We have been getting concerned calls about the food bank closing and it is so good to have some good news to share.

“I very much hope that the public will continue to donate food items to the food bank at their usual collection point so that this service can continue.

The food bank operated its last distribution session on Wednesday and the council intends to be able to open in time for the scheduled session on Monday.

Details of how eligible residents can collect food parcels will be published at https://www.rugby.gov.uk/foodbank
