Future Library Services Consultation – drop in sessions

MESSAGE FROM ESSEX LIBRARY SERVICES

 

Based on feedback and experience so far, we are changing our approach to the information drop ins at libraries about the future library services consultation.

 

Instead of just one two- or four-hour slot, we are offering a week at each library during which people can drop in any time it is open to ask questions and find out what the strategy is about.  Once they’ve done so, if they want help to access the survey, library staff can provide it. 

 

We’re making the change because feedback so far has shown that people want to be able to drop in at times convenient to them, including weekends and evenings. In some locations lots of people want to find out about the consultation. In smaller libraries, this could pose a serious risk to health and safety if a lot of people arrive at once and mean that some people leave frustrated that their expectations haven’t been met.  The drop in sessions will be at the times when those libraries are normally open.   

 

We also want to ensure that people who might need help to access the information or the survey, have the time and space to do so; with a large number of people at once, this is difficult to do.

 

Please note that the purpose of the drop-ins is to provide information, not to gather feedback.  We are asking everybody to respond to the consultation via the survey, preferably online, as this is the most efficient and accurate way to ensure their views are recorded and heard.

 

The new drop-in times are now available at http://libraries.essex.gov.uk/libraries-consultation/information-drop-ins/ .

 

Please help us by sharing this new plan within your communities.

The Post Office service in Wethersfield Village Hall is now a permanent fixture!

Tips for a Crime Free Christmas

TIPS FOR A CRIME FREE CHRISTMAS SHOP

The tips for a crime free Christmas shop start before you leave your house,    after all you don’t want to come home to find the house broken into.

1. Garden tools securely locked away in the shed – Burglars will be happy to use your tools to break into your house.

2. Create the illusion your home is occupied – Radio and lights on a timer in rooms you would normally occupy, there is even a device called “Fake TV” that flashes a series of lights when it gets dark that looks like the TV is on. There are now door bells that you can view and answer from your Smartphone.

3. Lock up properly not just your windows and doors in the house, but also any gates and outbuildings.

4. Choose a “Park Mark” car park where you can  http://www.parkmark.co.uk/ . By choosing a Park Mark® Safer Parking facility you are visiting a car park that has been vetted by the Police and has measures in place in order to create a safer environment for both you and your vehicle.

5. Leave nothing in sight within your car, remove the “Sat Nav” cradle and clean the mark on the windscreen.

6. When you lock your car with the remote look for the light flash confirmation or better still try the door handle before leaving the car.

7. Now you’re starting your shop watch your purse, wallet, mobile phone and handbag especially in busy places, don’t leave them on display in bags or on counters while you pay, and while you’re paying watch that no one is watching you entering your PIN when making purchases or withdrawing cash.

8. Time to stop for lunch or a cuppa, don’t drop your guard. Mobile phone on the table, shopping by the chair, wallet or purse visible, coat, jacket or handbag over the chair; if a thief sees it a thief will steal it.

9. Need to off load some of those purchases in the car, look around are you    being watched? Back to (5 & 6) above again.

10. Time go home, don’t fall for any distractions while you load the car i.e. “you dropped some money” pointing to cash on the ground, holding a map “can you tell me the way to”. While you are engaged the second person steals from your car on the other side. Close and lock your car before speaking to anyone.
