Withy Arts: Skilled Women Basket Makers needed to deliver a HLF funded project in Great Yarmouth

We are seeking to commission two experienced women freelance basket makers as Project Manager/Worker (Fee £15,000) and Project Worker (Fee £10,000) to deliver our HLF funded project “Catching the Memories and Passing on the Skills”.

This 15 month project is focussed on the heritage basket making industry in Great Yarmouth. It seeks to record the experience and skills of retired basket makers and pass them on in workshops and exhibitions to residents of the town. It  involves reminiscence with older people for a DVD recording memories and skills of basket makers, and of the fishing industry, and then running series of basket making sessions with local participants from disadvantaged groups as well as one-day workshops for the general public. It also includes exhibitions of work and promotional events. The basket making display in the town’s Time and Tide Museum will also be updated.
We aim to recruit the help of 10 local volunteers from excluded groups for which a Volunteer Coordinator/Project Assistant will be separately commissioned along with a Film Maker and a Researcher/Writer for the DVD.

Both the Project Worker/Manager and Project Worker roles require professional basket making skills, including local heritage baskets, and ability to teach basketry to groups and give public displays. Proven skills and experience in successful project work with this type of project is important. Sensitivity to, and experience of, working successfully with disadvantaged and vulnerable people is essential. Our target groups include vulnerable women so we are specifically looking for women practitioners with full DBS checks for these roles.  In addition, the Project Worker/Manager will need to be experienced in managing similar projects and budgets, coordinating people and activities, supervising others and being accountable to a board of trustees.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest in these roles prior to inviting formal applications.

Your Takeaway is served - this Great British Tennis Weekend

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 07/20/2018 - 12:29
 

A flavour of the week at NCC...   20 July 2018                          

Keep in safe hands

On Tuesday, in response to Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner’s business case and public consultation on whether he should assume control of our Fire and Rescue Service (NFRS), we published our report outlining exactly why the governance of NFRS should remain with Norfolk County Council. The report describes NFRS as 'efficient, effective and economic'and talks about our strong and productive track record of working together Read the full report here.  To have your views heard, complete the online survey.

On Monday, our latest on-call firefighters (pictured) began their first day of training at the NFRS training centre in Bowthorpe. On-call firefighters must live or work within five minutes of a retained fire station. There are still vacancies for on-call firefighters across Norfolk, so if you think you have what it takes to become part of our fire service family, click here.

Also this week, fire crews from across Norfolk continue to work around the clock to deal with a large number of fires in the open across the county- with the recent hot weather leading to a huge spike in demand. More

Celebrating 10 years of Norwich Pride 

Our fostering team will be supporting Norwich Pride next week. You'll find them in Chapelfield Gardens on Saturday 28 July from 10am. The Rainbow flag will also be flying at County Hall and Norwich Castle. There's a main parade on the day, leaving City Hall at 1pm and a chance to see the premiere of a short, animated film looking at LGBT+ young people’s experiences of growing up in the care system.The film is made by the UEA and Creative Research Collective and is showing in the Forum Auditorium at 11.30am.

More about Norwich Pride. More about fostering.

Four-year plan to boost health approved

A four-year strategy that will 'use our resources in the most effective way to prioritise prevention and support to the most vulnerable' was agreed by the Health and Wellbeing Board on Tuesday. It’s a vital step in our work to improve the health of Norfolk and Waveney’s people. The strategy links in with the STP plan for the area.  More...

Calling all coaches

If you have a coaching qualification for managers (eg ILM Level 5 or 7 or equivalent), Kate Brown, Lead Learning and Development Consultant, would like to hear from you. Would you be able to offer coaching sessions to managers on our new approach to performance conversations? If you're interested, please contact Kate to find out more.

Tour de Norfolk Day!

This week our Chairman, Councillor Margaret Stone, joined the county’s mayors and chairmen on a special tour of Norfolk celebrating our rich and unique cultural heritage ahead of Norfolk Day, on Friday 27 July. The tour covered seven districts, starting and finishing in Great Yarmouth. You can see what they got up to at #NorfolkGrandTour.

Also don’t forget our staff competition – tell us what you think of Norfolk in just 27 words and you could win a free-day out at one of our wonderful museums (for up to five people). More…

Mental health – take a step forward

As mentioned in Wendy Thomson's blog this week, the mental health of our workforce requires everyone’s support and attention. As part of that support, the Well-being team is compiling a video featuring staff who have had mental health issues. They have lots of female volunteers, but need more male volunteers to step forward. Please email the Well-being team

And finally…  anyone for free tennis?

It’s the Great British Tennis Weekend (this weekend) – when you can play tennis for free anywhere in the country. You can find a list of open days, and venues, across Norfolk here and more details on the Active Norfolk website. So, give it a try. You could be the next Novak Djokovic or Angelique Kerber? 

Missed last week's edition? Don't worry - you can find all editions at The Friday Takeaway

Last chance for equalities survey

Please remember to complete our short online equalities survey, so we can be a more inclusive employer and offer support in any legislation associated with Brexit. The survey closes 21 July.

Update phone book entries

Help us deliver excellent customer service, and save valuable staff time, by keeping your phonebook entry up to date. Colleagues in our customer service centre, in the postroom and on reception rely on this information. If it’s incorrect or incomplete, it makes it difficult to transfer calls and increases the risk of mail going astray and of data breaches, and means visitors are kept waiting at reception.

County Hall car park reminder

A reminder that work has started on a new pay car park at County Hall, due to open in October. So this can happen, the current pay & display car park will close on 25 July (when the school holidays start) until the new pay car park is complete.  Here’s a reminder of what’s planned and alternative travel options.

Sign up for childcare vouchers now 

The government is closing its childcare vouchers scheme to new joiners in the autumn, so staff need to sign up by 31 August to remain on the scheme beyond 2018 and continue to benefit from savings. More...

Good neighbours

We’ve had a complaint about staff gathering and smoking in The Loaning (which leads into Conesford Drive and then Bracondale) next to County Hall. Please be aware that The Loaning is an area of private land, through which there is a right of way only. If you’re smoking at or near County Hall, please use our designated smoking areas and please remember to be considerate to our neighbours, wherever you work.  Many thanks.

Beano-themed ‘Mischief Makers’ Summer Reading Challenge launches in Norfolk

Young readers are all geared up for a great summer with the launch of the free Summer Reading Challenge 2018 at libraries across Norfolk on Saturday 14 July.

This year’s Challenge is called Mischief Makers and is inspired by children’s favourite, The Beano, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary. Children aged 5-11 will explore a map of Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure. Dennis, Gnasher and friends will help children solve clues and collect stickers as they read, having lots of fun and adventures along the way!

Councillor Margaret Dewsbury, Chairman of Norfolk County Council’s Communities Committee, said: “Children’s reading often dips over the long holiday, so we’re pleased to be part of this national scheme to help keep children reading and enjoying books through the summer. Over 13,000 children from across Norfolk took part in last year’s Summer Reading Challenge and we’re hoping even more will join in this year.”

Pilot travel scheme for children with special educational needs

We’re increasing the travel options available to children and young people with special education needs or disabilities (SEND) by introducing a new pilot payment scheme.

Known as Personalised Travel Payments (PTP), the scheme means that families can apply to the council for funding and then make their own arrangements for getting their child to school.

It’s aimed at increasing flexibility for children and young people, so that they do not have a rigid time for taxi or mini bus pick up. It also means families can spend more time together on the school run.

It’s an alternative to traditional school or college transport and is entirely optional. Any children or young person who is eligible for specialist transport can apply. More information is available via the Local Offer webpage.

Child Safety Seat Check Tour

 

Norfolk County Council’s annual child safety check tour kicks off this month on Monday 30th July - come along and have your child car seat checked for free by the road safety team. The team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about your child’s car seat. The tour starts in Norwich and tours around the county for four weeks.

Mobile phone detection system launches in Norfolk - UK first

 Norfolk County Council’s road safety team have this week launched a new roadside mobile phone detection system designed to encourage drivers to stop using their mobile phone at the wheel.

First in the UK, the system can recognise calls made holding the phone (but not using a headset with Bluetooth).  When the sign is activated by a vehicle, the sign will flash a mobile phone warning sign designed to encourage the driver to stop using their phone. 

Have your say on Earlham Road safety schemes

Earlham Road in Norwich is set to see two projects that aim to improve safety for cyclists, with a consultation asking for feedback on proposals now underway.

 One of the schemes concentrates on the Earlham Fiveways roundabout while the other includes a series of measures along the green pedalway, between the outer ring road roundabout and the junction with Heigham Road.

 Proposals for the projects were put together for a successful £1.7m bid to the Department for Transport’s (DfT) Cycle City Ambition safety fund.

 For full details and information on how to comment, please visit www.norwich.gov.uk/consultations. Deadline for responses is Tuesday 24 July, with the outcome due to be reported to Norwich Highways Agency Committee in September.

If approved, construction of the schemes will take place next year, delivered by Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council through Transport for Norwich.

We have commissioned HemingwayDesign, specialists in coastal renewal, to build a vision for the town’s seafront.

HemingwayDesign aims to get to the heart of what Hunstanton’s Southern Seafront could become.

To help do that we are gathering together individuals, businesses and organisations from Hunstanton and beyond for a creative workshop to hear Wayne Hemingway and the team explain HemingwayDesign’s initial thinking. We’ll be seeking your talent and creativity, together with that of others, to generate ideas that we can capture as part of the new vision.

The evening starts with a bite to eat. Then Wayne Hemingway and the team will make a short presentation about HemingwayDesign’s work in Boscombe, Margate, Morecambe, Lowestoft and
other coastal towns, and present HemingwayDesign’s initial views about some broad possibilities for the Southern Seafront site. Then the HemingwayDesign team will lead workshops to tease out your views and ideas.

Below are links to the project brief and to HemingwayDesign:

Become a silver social volunteer today

Make a difference to older people in your local community and become a volunteer for Breckland Council's Silver Social Project. The Project is delivering an ambitious programme of daytime events to community venues across Breckland, promoting participation and independent living to older people in rural communities. Until 2020, workshops and performances held by professional artists are taking place in Ashill, Necton, Shipdham, Mattishall, Harling, Dereham, Attleborough, Swaffham, Watton and Thetford. Upcoming Events. We are looking for a team of enthusiastic and welcoming volunteers to help support events in these areas, ensure the Project reaches its target audience and with our support, to sustain the project's aims beyond 2020. We are developing two volunteer roles:

Silver Social Event Support Volunteer
There are a number of ways you can get involved in the Project: As a Silver Social Event Support Volunteer, your role is to act as an advocate for the Project and provide essential support to the Project Coordinator at Silver Social events. You will help set up event space; greet artists and participants at sessions; organise refreshments and help to clear down and collect evaluation data and feedback after an event. This role is an opportunity to gain experience in event organisation and to develop new skills within a community project. You will also have the opportunity to watch world class arts performances – for free!

Silver Social Volunteer Promoter
As a Silver Social Volunteer Promoter, your role is to act as an advocate for the Project and help promote Silver Social events in your area. Using both traditional and online methods, this will be done through the distribution of publicity material; word of mouth recommendation and promoting activities at local clubs and groups, as well as sharing online content through social media and event listing websites. This role is an opportunity to gain experience in event promotion and organisation, with the potential to join a wider network of volunteer promoters running your own events, in partnership with Creative Arts East.

To support the Project with any of the above, get in touch!

Volunteering for the Silver Social is an unpaid position, but is an opportunity to gain experience on a nationally recognised arts project, with the potential to develop your own community programme. Travel expenses will be covered.

Time commitment: Approximately 3 – 5 hours a month (flexible). Exact days dependent on programming schedule.

Have a beano with your Takeaway

A flavour of the week at NCC...   13 July 2018                          

No compelling case for change

This week, Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (Lorne Green) launched a business case, and public consultation, on whether he should assume control of our Fire and Rescue Service. On Wednesday, our Leader Cllr Andrew Proctor reassured us that: “there is no compelling case for a change in governance. We are unconvinced about the PCC’s claim that this saves £10m over a ten-year period. There is no clear evidence that any savings would be easier to achieve through a change in governance as opposed to continuing our very successful track record of collaboration and joint working”. See the Leader’s statement in full here.

Have we got news for you!

It was hard to miss our mobile phone detection story this week. The roadside system, which we’ve developed with Westcotec, detects if a mobile phone is in use in a passing vehicle, and is being piloted in Norfolk – a UK first.  

Lou Banning, Principal Comms Officer, started pitching the story to national and local broadcast a couple of weeks ago, and at the crack of dawn on Monday hit the phones with a national sell-in. All the hard work paid off – with blanket national coverage this week plus another 100+ pieces of regional coverage. Excellent work Lou!  More…

The Leader talks fairer funding

Make sure you watch the interview with Leader of the Council, Cllr Andrew Proctor, on last week’s Sunday Politics East show aired on 8 July. The Leader explains why we’re campaigning for fairer funding and national investment in local public services. We’re urging MPs to back fairer funding for rural areas and tackle social exclusion. Watch from 56 mins, 30 seconds. More…

The great outdoors for early years

Last weekend, Children’s Services' Early Years and Achievement team hosted its first childminders' conference at Woodside Centre, in Norwich. The team also launched its Early Years Garden Project, promoting outdoor play for children’s health and wellbeing, with a model garden for people to enjoy. This is the first of 16 different outdoor areas to be created over the next year at the centre. To find out more email the team.  More….

Have a beano with the summer reading challenge

Tell your friends and family about our summer reading challenge Mischief Makers, which this year is inspired by the Beano’s 80th birthday. It launches on Saturday 14 July in libraries across Norfolk, and is aimed at children aged 5-11, whose reading often dips over the summer holiday. More…

Pre-school children can also get involved with their own mini version of the challenge, while older children can join the ImagiNation challenge.

Multi-agency Discharge Event - MADE

Health and social care professionals in Norfolk will come together next week (16-17 July) to address issues around delayed transfer of care in hospitals. There will be a live twitter feed to inform colleagues throughout the afternoon session using the hashtag: #MultiADE18
Click here for more information.

And finally... Bravo Norfolk children again!

Here, with the correct link, is our story of more than 100 children and young people in care who were recognised at our annual celebration of achievement awards at the University of East Anglia last week. The award ceremony was attended by children and young people, their foster carers and social workers. More…
