Food Offers for the Parish

Stogursey Community Network has been offered a regular supply of food for distribution to the Parish such as dried pasta, rice, cereal, tinned foods etc.
This is provided by Fareshare Bristol (you can read about their work here: https://faresharesouthwest.org.uk), basically they prevent waste by redistributing food that would otherwise be thrown away. All the food provided is in date and perfect.
Before they accept this generous offer and undertake to store and distribute this food in our community they would like to check that there are people who would take up this opportunity.
  • If you are finding finances rather tight at the moment, this could help you,
  • If you have children at home all day, ‘eating you out of house and home’, this could help you,
  • If you know of anyone else who you think would benefit from a regular bagful of food supplies, this could help them.
Please let SCN know.
They can, and do, deliver food safely to people’s homes, or you could collect (and choose) food items yourself, by prior arrangement.
This is a wonderful offer, but they do NOT want waste!
Get in touch with them by Facebook Messenger –  Stogursey Community Network
or phone us on 01278 732149, in total confidence.
They need to hear from you ASAP!

 

Somerset County Council’s Outdoor Centres – Online virtual tours and booking

Vital children’s activity service launches brand new digital front door

Somerset County Council’s Outdoor Centres (SSE Outdoors) provide memorable experiences to thousands of young people every year.

Now, thanks to an engaging new website booking them is just a click away.

Over 14,000 young people visit the four centres each year and even throughout the Covid-19 crisis Support Services for Education (SSE) Outdoors has continued to run holiday day camps giving vulnerable children and young people the chance to enjoy safe outdoor activities.

The new website – www.sseoutdoors.co.uk  – created by Somerset County Council’s Web Team offers a vivid insight into what the service offers with stunning images and video, and a new digital booking service means activities and holidays can now be booked simply and easily online.

“Our centres, run by SSE Outdoors, provide such rich and valuable experiences for so many children and young people from across Somerset and beyond, including me a few decades ago” said Cllr Faye Purbrick, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education.

“During the Covid crisis the team and centres have been a lifeline for so many vulnerable young people and some who are at risk of becoming involved in criminality. The new site is a fitting shop window for the great range of activities and holidays available.”

SSE Outdoors Service Manager, Daniel Moncrieff added: “The new website, created in-house, showcases the work of the team wonderfully and makes it really easy for schools and organisations to book activities and holidays by cutting out the need for phone calls and paperwork.

“That’s really important as it saves time for teachers and social workers who are supporting young people.”

A new lake is under construction at Kilve Court in West Somerset, which will add water sports to the wide list of current activities that include abseiling, climbing, cycling, caving, camping, hiking and canoeing.

SSE Outdoors is also pleased to be involved in the Government’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme to support disadvantaged children in staying healthy and active.

As well as Kilve Court there are three other centres – The Outdoor Centre at Kilve, The Great Wood Centre, set in the Quantocks, and the Charterhouse Centre in the Mendips, near Cheddar Gorge.

  • The centres put on 7,600  activity sessions for young people over the current crisis.
  • The team has worked with the Council by making freezable meals for people across Somerset, totalling over 2,100 Christmas meals and over 4,500 evening meals.
  • SSE Outdoors is preparing for schools residentials to start taking place after Easter, following on from a recent Government announcement.

Consumers urged to be aware of fake texts offering Covid-19 vaccine

Trading Standards is warning the public to be on their guard following reports that fraudsters are sending out fake texts offering a Covid-19 vaccine in an attempt to steal bank details.

The text offers a link to what police call an “extremely convincing” fake NHS website.

Once on the website people are asked to input their bank details to register for a vaccine.

The scam message reads ‘we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine’ and then prompts you to click on a link for further information or to ‘apply’ for the vaccine.

If you receive a text or email that asks you to click on a link or for you to provide information, such as your name, credit card or bank details, delete it immediately.

Remember, the NHS will never ask for your payment details.

If you think you have been scammed, you can get advice and find out how to report it at Citizens Advice – What to do if you’ve been scammed.

If you think you have been targeted by a scammer contact Action Fraud on 03001232040
