Closure

Mansfield District Council is replacing 3 of its payment offices with new more convenient ways to pay bills and giving residents much more choice in the process. From 1 April this year, customers who prefer to pay Council bills in cash can do so at any Post Office, any PayPoint location, or at Mansfield Civic Centre payment office, which is being retained. As a result of the change, existing Council payment offices at Warsop will close on 31 March. More Information >>>

Warsop
Fire Station

 

 

 

 

 

The Chief Fire Officers proposal to close the Fire Station, along with 5 other Retained stations throughout the county, has been delayed by The Fire Authority. The Fire Authority will officially announce this at a meeting on Friday 25th February 2011. Village and on line petitions, as well as canvassing of Fire Authority members by Parish Councillors and RFU members put enough doubt in the members of the Fire Authority to come to their decision.

The Fire Authority will now recommend that;-
•9.1 The Fire Authority receives the Fire Cover Review from the Chief Fire Officer and agrees to the establishment of a Member led working group to look in depth at the implications relating to the review.
•9.2 The group is to examine jointly with Officers all options associated with the review prior to making a decision over possible public consultation. The working group will present its conclusions to a future meeting of the Fire Authority
•9.3 The working group consist of six Members (two Labour, two Conservative, 1 Liberal Democrat and 1 Independent) and two Officers of the Service.
It is also understood that the Representative bodies throughout the Fire Service will have input into this working party, of which Adam Moore and Jez Rhodes will be involved both as District Representatives of the Retained Firefighters Union as well as having a vested interest in Edwinstowe Fire Station.

Adam Moore, Chairman of the Nottinghamshire RFU, and a firefighter at Edwinstowe with over 25 years said, “Although we see this as a positive step, we don’t believe for one second that this is the end of the problem. We will not be sitting back, there is too much at stake here, we will continue to campaign to protect the jobs of Retained Firefighters in Nottinghamshire and maintain effective fire cover throughout the communities of Nottinghamshire.” Read the Report >>>>

Further meetings will be held and everyone is welcome. Times to be arranged.

Bid to Find
Seasonal Dog Illness
A new website has been launched in a bid to help find out why some dogs have fallen ill when visiting woodlands across Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. The Animal Health Trust (AHT) has created an online questionnaire for people to report incidents where their pets fell ill or perhaps even died. Reports of the mystery sickness – dubbed Seasonal Canine Illness - first came to light in 2009 and more dogs fell ill in 2010. The problem has also been reported in other parts of the country, including East Anglia and Warwickshire, and only seems to occur during Autumn months.

Locally the Forestry Commission has joined forces with the Environment Agency, National Trust, Notts Wildlife Trust, Nottinghamshire County Council and Ashfield and Mansfield District Councils to try and solve the riddle. Jo Atkinson from the Forestry Commission said: "Scientific tests carried out last year drew a blank, but we even so believe that experts from the University may be able to help. As a first step it is vital we get an accurate idea of the number and distribution of dogs falling ill so we would urge any dog owners who have been affected to fill in the questionnaire.” The new website page can be found at www.aht.org.uk/seasonal_illness.html

MDC Press Release

Polling Station Changes

Some voters will be casting their vote in unfamiliar surroundings at this year’s local elections after a review of polling station locations by Mansfield District Council. Sherwood Junior School in Warsop is normally closed for elections to be used as polling stations. However, following the review, the Council will now be using community buildings including Warsop Methodist Church and the Wellington Close Community Centre in Warsop in their place.

Ruth Marlow, Managing Director and Returning Officer at Mansfield District Council said: “The new arrangements will mean that some people will be voting at a different location to the one they have in previous elections and I would urge all voters to check their poll card which will carry the address of their polling station and a map.” For further information on the Polling Places Review and voting arrangements call Mansfield District Council’s Elections team on 01623 463 345. The full Polling Place Review report together with maps of the new polling districts and stations is available to view on Mansfield District Council’s website at www.mansfield.gov.uk/pollingplaces
