BikeSafe 2017 Saturday 19th August

BikeSafe2017 is returning to Northamptonshire and is this year supporting Openroads, a family road safety day with a difference.

Organised by BikeSafe and Northamptonshire Highways, BikeSafe is a police led motorcycle initiative run by most forces throughout the UK. And this year they are bringing it back to Northamptonshire and the iconic Rockingham Circuit in Corby on Saturday August 19th.

BikeSafe and Northamptonshire Highways are delighted to announce their charity partner will be the Fire Fighters Charity and are proud to be supporting fire fighters in need. They will be collecting on the day with any proceeds going to this great cause.

The Fire Fighters Charity (formally the Fire Service National Benevolent Fund) was initially set up during the Second World War to support the bereaved families of firefighters who had died during the Blitz. Over time, the Charity has evolved to become the UK's leading provider of services for the Fire Service community and their beneficiaries.

The Fire Fighters Charity supports firefighters in need. Whether injured, ill or in need of psychological support to come to terms with the life and death situations they face on a daily basis, the Charity is there to provide support in various ways. These include rehabilitation, health and wellbeing, nursing, recuperation, a child and family programme and an advice, information and support service.

We would like to encourage support for the Fire Fighters Charity because, at any time, no one knows when they may need the help of the Fire Service. In addition, by donating to ensure these services continue, you are making a valuable contribution to the Fire Service community.

This year BikeSafe and Openroads have teamed up to bring you the biggest highway extravaganza anywhere in the country. Combining thrills, skills and breath taking shows with something for every type of road user whether you love cars, motorbikes or cycles, the day guarantees to have something for everyone with a love of wheels.

The Openroads area will involve activities, stands and demonstrations, including examples of what takes place during Police pursuits, a display of modified and supercars, an array of motorbikes on show, and activities for children, including the chance to ride in a police car and climb into a fire engine.

Firefighters from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service will be running simulated rescue demonstrations involving each of the emergency services, to show onlookers just how the services work together to deal with road traffic collisions.

Highlights of the day include a lorry experience, run by Maxim Logistics, which enables members of the public to have a go at driving a lorry around Rockingham Circuit. The aim of this was to educate people about the dangers posed by blind spots.

The day will also involve motorcycle safety sessions and CarKraft taster sessions for young drivers, which comprised of driving experiences such as skid training in Renault cars.

The aim is to provide a fun day out for families, non-drivers and drivers, young and old, but the motivation for the day was also to help cut the number of people being killed or injured on Northamptonshire's roads.

The event runs from 10am until 5pm. Entry and parking is free.

The police assessed ride and track experience can be booked at www.bikesafe.co.uk

Register Private Fostering Arrangements

Northamptonshire County Council is encouraging people who have a child living with them who is not their own to register it as a private fostering arrangement.

Private fostering is when children up to the age of 16 living with someone other than a close relative, guardian or person with parental responsibility for 30 days or more and the county council has a statutory duty to record it.

Private foster carers can be a friend of the child's family, or be someone who is willing to care for the child of a family they do not know.

This could include:

  • Children and young people living apart from their families
  • minority ethnic children with parents working or studying in the UK
  • children with parents overseas
  • children living with host families for a variety of reasons
  • children on holiday exchanges

Those providing private fostering could be entitled to benefits and support they may not currently be receiving.

The county council can also arrange professional support and advice for the guardians and the child's parents, and has a duty to ensure the child's needs are being met.

County council cabinet member for children and families Cllr Matthew Golby said: "There are occasions when someone may look after a child who isn't their own, for example a family friend who offers to help when a parent is going through a difficult time or a student from overseas who comes to stay with a family friend or a distant relative.

"Most people won't even recognise this as a private fostering arrangement, but by law we need to know about it so that we can make sure the needs of the child, the parents and the guardians are being fully met.

"That's why we're encouraging anyone who is involved in a private fostering arrangement, or knows someone who it, to get in touch."

To register a private fostering arrangement, people can call 0300 126 1000 or email mash@northamptonshire.gcsx.gov.uk.

For more information about private fostering, visit www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/privatefostering.

Police and Crime Commissioner Fire Governance Proposal

The Police and Crime Commissioner has now launched a public consultation regarding proposals for the governance of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service to transfer from the Fire Authority which currently sits in Northamptonshire County Council, to the Police and Crime Commissioner, who would therefore become the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.The government wants our emergency services to work much more collaboratively and has recently changed the law to allow this to happen. We already do this really well in Northamptonshire but there is scope for this to increase and for our fire and police services to work more closely together to keep our communities safe.We want to ensure as many people who live and work in Northamptonshire have their say and tell us what benefits and concerns they may have. A leaflet has been produced and there is a short animated film to describe the proposal. Please click here to view the short video:They have also created an online survey to capture people's views, which can be accessed at www.northantsfireproposals.co.uk (a postal survey and easy read version are also available on request). The survey closes on Tuesday 1st August 2017.We would really appreciate it if you would take the time to watch the short video clip and complete their online survey, and share the link with your friends, family and community. We would like as many people to have their voice heard as possible. For further information or if you having any questions please contact Sam Ward, Involvement Officer at: samantha.ward@northantspcc.pnn.police.uk
