The Environment Agency has published a very readable booklet on matters relating to flooding and its prevention.

Called “Living on the edge” it also lists the rights and responsibilities of landowners. Click here to download a copy or download from the website.

In Case of Emergency (ICE) – This message was received from the Ambulance Service. The idea it contains is incredibly simple, but potentially of enormous practical importance.

We all carry our mobile phone with names & numbers stored in its memory. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

Hence this ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

The concept of ‘ICE’ is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As mobile phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name ‘ICE’ ( In Case Of Emergency). The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents there were always mobile phones with patients but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognised name for this purpose.

In an emergency situation, emergency service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as ‘ICE’. Please forward this. It won’t take too many ‘forwards’ before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest.

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc

PLEASE PASS THIS AROUND AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE AS THIS CAN HELP IN AN EMERGENCY

For a while now the residents of our parishes have been complaining about the anti-social behaviour of some youths in the area, while at the same time, others who should know better have been at it as well!

Let’s not beat around the bush, dog mess is the unpleasant but unavoidable by-product of owning a dog.

It is every owner’s moral duty and legal responsibility to clean up after their dog.  They must also carry a poop bag or other means to
clean up after their dog.

The Public Space Protection Order means that irresponsible dog owners risk a £100 fixed penalty notice (FPN) and potential prosecution.  For details folllow this link.

An offence is committed if a person in charge of a dog fails to clean up its faeces in an area where the Dogs Fouling of Land Act 1996 applies. That is in a public place or private place where the public have access. (There are certain exemptions).

Following a rise in the number of complaints of dog fouling in the village the Malvern Hills District Council’s Street Scene team will be targeting the area in an effort to promote and enforce responsible dog ownership.

BE A RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNER

* Always remember to carry a poop scoop bag.

* Always clean up after your dog. (This includes your own back garden. Sec 80 EPA Act 1990)

* Your dog should be taken out to exercise, not foul.

* Teach your dog to foul in your garden.

* Worm your dog – dogs that are not wormed regularly can carry infections.

* Encourage other dog owners to do the same.

‘In-Lamb’ Ewe Dies After Dog Attack

All dog-owners in South Worcestershire are being urged by police to keep their pets on a lead when near sheep.

“A vast number of sheep are expecting to lamb across Malvern Hills, Wychavon and Worcester at this time of the year and a predatory loose dog is probably the worst thing that they could possibly face,” said a police spokesman.

“Pregnant sheep are very vulnerable and are quite likely to ‘drop’ the lamb – give birth prematurely in a distressed state – if they are ‘worried’ by a stray dog, let alone attacked as happened in this case.”

New Conservation Service

MHDC is introducing a new service to complement our Duty Planning Officer facility.

From the 7th April 2010, a Conservation Officer will be available in the Malvern Customer Service Centre, in Malvern Library, to answer simple enquiries on listed building issues every Wednesday afternoon between 14-00 and 16-00.

Initially this will be a drop-in service, first-come-first served but we anticipate that each consultation should last no longer than twenty minutes so that any waiting time will not be excessive. To enable us to advise fully, it is suggested that you bring photographs and/or drawings of the building in question so that we can discuss the impact of any proposed works on the whole of the building.

Do contact us or Customer Services if you require more information.

Heather Royle, Senior Conservation Officer; 01684 862335.

Nicola Wardroper, Planning Assistant (Conservation); 01684 862326
