Kingsnorth Community Cafe – Statement

Posted by on Aug 15th, 2019 in Community News, Featured, Latest News | Comments Off on Kingsnorth Community Cafe – Statement

Kingsnorth Parish Council are pleased to announce that after much hard work over the summer months liaising with the volunteers that the Kingsnorth Community Café will reopen in September 2019.

The cafe will be open three days a week with money generated from the café going into a ringfenced community fund to support local organisations, clubs and projects.

The Community Café will form part of the Parish Council and will have a Café committee that reports to the Parish Council with its own terms of reference and will form part of our standing orders. This will give the Community Café a governance structure that is formal, accountable and most importantly transparent so that the local community know what is happening with the money generated.

The Community Café will have regular events for residents including a monthly information hub that will give the community the opportunity to meet their local PCSO’s and Community Wardens, get information from local services such as the fire brigade, health providers and others.

We are looking to set up a weekly health walk that will start and finish at the café and will be led by an experienced NHS walking for health walk leader.

On Friday 27th September 2019 the Parish Council will be holding its annual McMillian Coffee Morning event throughout the day to raise money for a very worthy cause.

Finally, the Parish Council are keen to ensure that the volunteers are protected and provided with a safe, stable and happy environment to volunteer.

The volunteers are what made the café such a success and we believe that with the right structure in the place the café will be in a better and stronger position than ever.

As always, we are looking for volunteers to step in and help so if you are interested please get in contact with us.

A new Facebook Page has been set up and we hope you will like and follow us to help promote the café – Kingsnorth Parish Community Cafe Facebook Page

The Kingsnorth Community Café will re-open on Wednesday 18th September 2019. We look forward to welcoming you all back.

 

For and on behalf of Kingsnorth Parish Council

County Lines – Support Guidance

Posted by on Aug 13th, 2019 in Community News, Latest News | Comments Off on County Lines – Support Guidance

As part of the Government’s ongoing commitment to tackle serious and violent crime, the Home Office has relaunched its County Lines awareness-raising campaign. County Lines is the term used to describe urban gangs supplying drugs to suburban areas, as well as market and coastal towns, by using dedicated mobile phone lines or “deal lines”. Gangs use children and vulnerable people to move drugs and money to these areas. Once caught up in County Lines, exploited individuals are at risk of extreme physical and/or sexual violence, gang recriminations and trafficking.

Our campaign aims to raise awareness about County Lines among frontline staff, like teachers, health workers and those working in the transport, housing and security sectors. It is these people who are most likely to encounter those young people or individuals who are most at risk.

With the right knowledge, staff will know how to spot potential victims and report concerns anonymously to Crimestoppers, or safeguard in line with their organisation’s safeguarding policy.
