Testimonials

YORSwitch customer: I just wanted to thank you again for your speed and efficiency in enabling me to join the scheme so quickly and take advantage of the 'reduced' rate. I have been very anxious about refilling the oil tank but this scheme has eased some of that concern. Many thanks
Fiona - Electric Tricycle User, Age 51. 'I purchased an electric tricycle as I have Multiple Sclerosis and can no longer ride a bicycle due to poor balance and mobility issues. I have found that being out on my tricycle that my fitness has improved and it has had an impact on weight loss. With the pedal assist I am still able to pedal and use my legs which is important to keep my muscles active, reduce numbness and I am also able to cycle further including hills and this also helps with fatigue as I tire easily. I have enjoyed being able to access local rural areas which has had a positive impact on my mental health and wellbeing, especially during this difficult time due to Covid-19 and being isolated as a clinically vulnerable person. This has meant that I have been able to get out of the house and feel safe whilst exercising. There are a lot of support groups on social media where I have met other like minded cyclists who have offered invaluable support and advice and I have met up with another lady tricycle rider as a riding companion.'
Wheels to Work North Lincolnshire Scheme - John from Grimsby ‘I joined the scheme in 2021 after hearing about it from a family member. I was in need of transport to get to and from work as I had my motorbike stolen and was not able to replace it. As a short-term arrangement I was relying on a family member to take and pick me up from work. For me the key benefit of the wheels to work scheme was that it provided me with a scooter that enabled me to get to and from work, it also gave me back independence and freedom. I would definitely recommend the scheme and I have done so to friends who are need of transport to get to work. Don’t’ underestimate the scooters as they are extremely reliable . My experience of the scheme was great, and I was glad that I was successful in receiving a scooter via the scheme’.
Mrs Surfleet a registered customer of the car scheme thanked HWRA for an excellent service and also to personally thank the driver, Terry for his help and assitance in providing transport to her medical appointment.

North Lincolnshire Council would like your views on being a carer.

A carer is someone who gives support to another person; a family member, friend or neighbour, who would otherwise not manage without their support. You are not paid to give this support. Many people don't see themselves as carers, even though they provide vital support for the people they are caring for. North Lincolnshire Council would like to understand your experiences and what your future support needs might be if you are or have been a carer. This will help inform the future commissioning of services for carers. The survey will ask you about any challenges faced as well as what support is important to carers. The survey closes 1st September 2022

Tree Planting and Food Production: A joined-up approach

The England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO) is one of a number of ongoing payments that can support farmers to manage their land in an environmentally sustainable way while continuing to produce food. We're offering the opportunity to create woodland of various types and sizes in a flexible way that works for both land managers and farmers. We are inviting eligible farmers and land managers to apply for a share of £25 million available this financial year to support woodland creation in England. Land areas as small as 1 hectare and up can enter a EWCO agreement to access this funding. There is no reason to delay planting trees on your land. The England Woodland Creation Offer will, from 2025, become part of Local Nature Recovery – one of our new environmental land management schemes.
Biodiversity Metric Milestone- Defra Consultation on the biodiversity metric

Biodiversity Metric Milestone- Defra Consultation on the biodiversity metric

“The Secretary of State has now launched an 8-week consultation on the Biodiversity Metric to be used for the purpose of calculating biodiversity net gain as required under the 2021 Environment Act. The Biodiversity Metric is a key tool that supports the delivery of Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG). It is used to calculate the baseline biodiversity value of a site and forecast its future biodiversity value. The launch of this consultation is a key milestone in the countdown towards the commencement of mandatory BNG for Town and Country Planning Act developments in November 2023. The same requirement will come into force for developments under the 2008 Planning Act by the end of 2025.”
Reducing the impact of deer on the natural environment

Reducing the impact of deer on the natural environment

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) have published a consultation seeking views from councils on the key proposals and actions to include in the final deer management strategy, developed by the Forestry Commission and Defra. Wild deer, especially native species, are an important and valued part of our natural heritage. In England however, due to a number of factors, including land use changes and a lack of natural predators, deer density and distribution have dramatically increased over the last century, and at such levels pose a significant risk to our woodlands and the other animals that rely on them. The consultation includes questions relating to several proposals to reduce the impacts of deer, improve deer welfare and ensure wild deer do not reach unsustainable levels across England. This will include seeking views on ways of increasing landscape scale management of wild deer including on private ownerships, government and council owned land. The consultation closes at 11:45pm on 2 September.

ACRE welcomes new grant scheme for improving village halls

ACRE welcomes new grant scheme for improving village halls

National charity says £3 million fund announced by government will safeguard the future of many valued rural community buildings Timed to coincide with Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, the government has committed to supporting over 100 rural community buildings with capital improvements. This follows in the footsteps of investments made in village halls as part of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee (1897) and King George V‘s Silver Jubilee (1935). There are over 10,000 village halls to be found in most rural communities across England, providing residents with what is quite often the only place to meet and socialise locally. They host a wide range of activities from exercises classes, playgroups to weddings and many accommodate vital services such as post offices, doctors’ surgeries and shops.
