SHOEBURY MATTERS – 12.07.2020

Travellers – James Duddridge replied to a letter from the SRA – ‘The setting up of illegal traveller sites can be a nuisance for local communities and an inappropriate development of open space. I know that many local residents across the country are concerned about anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping, and noise related to unauthorised sites. You may be pleased to know that the Government is consulting on measures to criminalise the act of trespassing when setting up an unauthorised encampment in England and Wales. Ministers are also consulting on other measures to strengthen police powers in order to tackle unauthorised encampments. The consultation survey has now closed, and Ministers are currently analysing feedback.’

The Great British September Clean – 11-27 September 2020 –Keep Britain Tidy are thrilled to launch the Great British September Clean after the Great British Spring Clean was cancelled due to Covid-19. They are calling on you – our ‘Litter Heroes’ – to be part of the pick and do your bit to care for the environment on your doorstep, as we join forces to collect and safely dispose of litter from our country’s streets, parks and beaches. There are two ways you can get involved and show support for our Great British September Clean:

  1. Organise a private group clean-up with up to five family & friends.
  2. Pledge to do your own individual clean-up, you can give as little as 15 minutes to the campaign.et ready for the Great British September Clean 11-27 September 2020. To join go to: https://www.keepbritaintidy.org/get-involved/support-our-campaigns/great-british-spring- clean

Susan Clayton – I am the lady who made lots of face coverings and posted them on my garden fence. They were free or I suggested a donation of £2 and all proceeds to be given to Southend Vineyard Storehouse. The total raised was £1207! I am only one of many many people who have sewn throughout the pandemic sewing scrubs, scrub bags, scrub hats and waterproof gowns as well as face coverings. The hub in Shoebury West Road has been very active and Carolyn Warner has done an amazing job of organising it all.

Sandra Sturrock – Thought I’d send you a photo of the latest set of steps, well done to the Council, they’re doing a good job.

Reminder re competition – ABSS Shoebury wards, we applied for funding to run a Painting & Photographic competition which we felt would engage the families and support them using technology together. We received £350 and once completed we shall receive further funding to SHOWCASE some of the work submitted. We are offering three £50 vouchers for a toy shop. We want to also offer 20 submissions the chance to win a creative or educational prize worth around £10 each.

We are excited about the way families will combine a mixture of media, including painting, drawing, photography & show how this relates to your experiences with Covid-19. Please share with local Shoebury Schools & any family members you think may benefit .We are giving you all until Friday 17th July to submit your entries. You can send electronically to shoeburyresidents@gmail.com For people that do not have such facilities you can post or deliver by hand to my address at 72 Leitrim Avenue SS3 9HF. Please include your name, address and telephone number – GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL
