Moorside Junior Wardens in Action Again

After the recent walkabout and litter pick in January 2018  (https://halifaxnorthandeast.com/2018/01/12/moorside-junior-wardens-clean-up-brant-avenue/) the wardens decided they wanted to highlight the amount of rubbish and dog faeces left in and around the area. The wardens have all worked really hard on creating and developing posters that will remind people to not litter and raise awareness around  picking  up faeces after their dogs.

We can take action in relation to complaints about dog fouling if you know who the person is who is not cleaning up after their dog has fouled, or you know the approximate time the fouling occurs.

Even if you do not know any of the above, but your area is badly fouled, let CMBC know or our new Community Warden Lee Ackroyd know and he will endeavour to undertake patrols and also clean up the worst affected areas.

You can help us by providing as much of the following information as possible:

  • Accurate location, is there a nearby landmark, lamp column or house number?
  • Frequency and time, how regular and at what time does it occur?
  • Description of the dog, for example a male black labrador puppy.

Address and description of the person walking the dog Or and report via https://www.calderdale.gov.uk/community/clean-streets/request-report/dog-fouling/form.jsp?stage=location or contact Community Warden Lee on 0300 555 0266.

The posters will be erected in and around the Brant Avenue area later this month so look out for the fantastic art work created by the wardens from Moorside Community Primary School.

 

Volunteers Keep Heywood Church Graveyard in Good Order

Members of the Heywood church in Northowram recently received a £500 Northowram & Shelf ward forum grant. This was used to purchase tools and equipment to  clean up and maintain the church grave yard, involving clearing away overgrown weeds and bushes and tending to graves that had fallen into disrepair.

As you can see from the photos this was no easy task.

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 22-28 January 2018

Just a reminder that this week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 22-28 January 2018.

The theme for the Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 2018 is “Reduce your risk”.

Cervical cancer can be prevented. With your help we can ensure every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease and the steps they can take to look after their health.

This means:

  • Attending cervical screening when invited
  • Knowing the symptoms of cervical cancer and seeking medical advice if experiencing any
  • Taking up the HPV vaccination if aged 11-18
  • Talking to friends and family to ensure they know how they can reduce their risk
  • Knowing where to find support and further information

We want to see the day when cervical cancer is a disease of the past. Join us this Cervical Cancer Prevention Week to get closer to that day.

There are lots of ways you can get involved including:

  • Hold an awareness day in your office, business, university, GP surgery or community centre: You can order free materials to display and hand out.
  • Check out some tips on raising awareness locally
  • Share your story: If you have been personally affected by cervical cancer or abnormalities and would like to talk about your experience to raise awareness then please get in touch
  • Use social media: Share the below images on social media to help us spread the word about cervical cancer prevention
  • Write a blog or create a news story, contact your local newspaper to let them know about the campaign
  • Contact your MP to raise awareness of the issues surrounding cervical cancer and prevention in your local area
  • Get your workplace to sign up to Time to Test, a campaign which raises awareness of cervical cancer in the workplace and ensures female employees can have the time to attend cervical screening if they are unable to get an appointment outside of working hours
  • Join our #SmearForSmear campaign to help us spread the word about the importance of smear tests in preventing cervical cancer.

For any extra information about the campaign, please email media@jostrust.org.uk or phone the helpline on 0808 802 8000
