 COVID 19 Updated: 11th Jan 21.  From North Yorkshire County Council.   

These are unprecedented times and we recognise that going into a third national lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic will be very difficult for many of you. We are sending you this email to help you to understand what this means for us all in North Yorkshire, and to make sure you know what support is available. We also want you to know that no-one in North Yorkshire should feel alone.

 

What is the current risk?

The new variant of the virus moves between people much more easily. A small amount of exposure can lead to infection. We know that people mixing inside homes has been a key way in which the virus transfers, so please play your part and do not meet other people inside. Infection rates have been rising very quickly in many areas of North Yorkshire, regardless of how rural the communities are. It is important to remember that one in three people with Covid has no symptoms and can be spreading it without knowing.

 

Sent to us by Carolyne Lobb from Bentham Moving Foward:

Well Bentham Moving Forward has now managed to achieve around 25-30 volunteers who responded to our ads for roles such as social media writer, gardeners, drivers, committee members and befriending services over the last few months.

We consider this a great success and that is because of you!

After all our moto is, The best gift is you! And that's certainly true don't you think!

You have helped the likes of Bentham Allotments, Age UK, Bentham Older People Together, Bentham Community Link Cafe, Goodenber Play Association and Bentham Dementia group to name just a few! Thank you Bentham for your support x

The Herbert Protocol is a form that contains vital information about the missing person.

The form is filled in by the person with Dementia, their family or carers. The completed form should be kept safely by carers, family or friends, but where it can be found quickly in the unfortunate event of the person going missing. The police will only ever ask for the form if the person is reported missing.

Here it is – The Co-op Throw Away Friday!  
The Co-op Throw Away Friday is starting right here in Bentham throwAwayFridaycoop
with a brand new neighbourhood pilot scheme!
Every last Friday in the month, we are encouraging Bentham
folk to leave out any tins of food they don’t want or need
and they will be collected for the Pop Up Pantry.
The PUP serves Bentham and the surrounding Ingleborough area. It is being piloted in one or two streets first and then hoping to be rolled out across
the whole village.
So what do we need to do? Simple – Leave out any unwanted tins on your door step, either Thursday night or early Friday morning (on the last Friday of each month!) and a neighbour who lives on your street will collect them for you.

The Government has announced that from Thursday Sept 24, venues including hospitality, leisure & tourism and close contact services, will be legally required to display an official NHS QR code poster. The new NHS COVID19 app will launch the same day. 
You can create and download a poster for your business here: https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus-qr-poster
More info is on our website here, including details of how we can help if your business needs assistance with printing: https://www.cravendc.gov.uk/coronavirus-advice-and-information/nhs-covid-19-app-information-for-businesses/
 Are you a farmer/ land owner in or around Bentham looking to utilise or diversify a piece of unused land?
If so, please do get in touch.
The Bentham Allotment and Community Garden Association need a base for their environmentally friendly, community initiative here in Bentham.
As a previous farm secretary I can assist in any DEFRA or funding applications, whether that be via Entry Level Stewardship or any other government diversification route.
So wondering how to get that space used then please do get in touch with Carolyne on 62512 or by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
           
Hello, As well as still doing my Coop role,
I’m the new Bentham Volunteering Campaign Development Worker
working towards creating more volunteers to work with you and your charity/community groups.

I am currently collecting data to form a database of the numbers and types of volunteers you may be looking for.
For instance, driver, care worker, gardener etc.
It would help me at this time to discover what your volunteering needs are and then I can gather some form of data baseline to illustrate where we basically stand.
This initial step is simply about ascertaining the need.Please could you get back to me with just a few words of your current requirements. For instance; one cook, two cleaners, three drivers, gardener, carer etc.
Many thanks, Carolyne Lobb.

 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), Are now accepting commercial waste at all HWRCs, as we previously did prior to their temporary closure in March due to COVID-19, with the exception of Harrogate Stonefall HWRC.

Commercial waste is any waste  from a commercial organisation, a business, a trade, a person’s employment, a landlord, a village hall, an educational establishment or a holiday caravan.

With the impending changes in the lockdown rules,  Pubs reopening and tons of exciting things about to happen.
We are compiling and publishing info about where you can eat and places to stay in Bentham,
At the moment this is a work in progress and will be updated as we go along.
Use the menu item Places to Stay, It provides a category drop down or a simple list. 
The Places to Eat is simply a random list with a picture or two and some words. 
The idea is to support Bentham businesses and at the same time provide a resource for our visitors.
For food and drink you should check with the establishment and probably book ahead. 
This sort of stuff is usually available from our tourist information point, However the decision has been made not to open our Tourist point this season.
If you have a Bentham business providing accommodation or food and drink and wish to be included in our Tourism information,
Please get in touch via the Town Clerk,  email townclerk (at) benthamtowncouncill.co.uk  and we can go from there.

From June the 15th, it will be compulsory to wear face masks on Public Transport
Face coverings become compulsory on public transport from 15th June.
Exemptions: 'very young children, disabled people & those with breathing difficulties'.
DIY face coverings (e.g. a scarf or bandanna tied snugly behind the head, covering the mouth & nose') encouraged.


Bentham Town Council has published a Community Emergency Plan.
it will identify procedures to be adopted in the event of a major incident in Bentham.
What is needed in any emergency situation is knowledge of the locality and local people.
Emergency plans work best when they make use of existing organisations and local knowledge.
