Temple Cloud Village Hall, Coronavirus update.

Following the government advice on codonavirus to avoid unnecessary social contact and to avoid gathering in groups, we are temporarily closing the village hall. We appreciate how difficult this situation is for our hirers and the local community and we ask our hirers to refer to and follow the government guidelines. We will review the situation regularly to see when it is suitable to reopen.

Booking fees can be returned without any cancellation fees. You may also postpone your refund and booking to a future date. If you ask us to postpone, the offer of a refund still stands if you still have to cancel due to the coronavirus situation.

The Hall will be made available for meetings or events necessary to assist with efforts to alleviate the effects of the virus outbreak.

When the circumstances improve, we would very much welcome your bookings again. If it will help, you are also welcome to make future provisional bookings to reserve the date on the same understanding that if they need to be cancelled due to government guidelines, we will not require payment.

We would insist that all users of the hall consider their usage and act with regard to the health and wellbeing of their groups and the community.

Coronavirus Covid-19 Update: 13 March 2020 from BANES:

What to do if you think you might have coronavirus symptoms

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19); a high temperature and/or a new, continuous cough, the NHS advice is to:

– stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started (this action will help protect others in your community while you are infectious)

– plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home- ask your friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home

– stay at least 2 metres (about 3 steps) away from other people in your home whenever possible.

– sleep alone, if that is possible- wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water.

– stay away from vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions as much as possible

– you do not need to call NHS111 to go into self-isolation. If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online. https://111.nhs.uk/

If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

Action over air quality in Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney

People are being given the chance to have their say and drop in at a series of events about Bath & North East Somerset Council’s plans to improve poor air quality in Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney.

The council has launched its Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney Air Quality Action Plan consultation and is inviting people to have their say.

An Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) has been declared in both Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney because the levels of nitrogen dioxide exceed the national air quality objective level for nitrogen dioxide when considered as an annual average. 

Councillor Dave Wood, cabinet member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “We all deserve to breathe clean air and so reducing people’s exposure to harmful air is a priority for us. There is a real problem in Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney which we can’t ignore. We need to reduce emissions by smoothing the flow of traffic and reducing the ‘stop starting’ of vehicles through the villages.

“We are taking action and we are now asking for people’s views about our proposals to improve the air quality and the lives of people living and working in both villages.”

The council has produced a draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) as part of its statutory duties required by the Local Air Quality Management framework. The plan outlines the action the council wants to take to improve air quality in the villages of Farrington Gurney and Temple Cloud in Bath and North East Somerset between 2020 and 2025.

Councillor Wood added: “Air pollution is associated with a number of adverse health impacts. It is recognised as a contributing factor in the onset of heart disease and cancer. Additionally, air pollution particularly affects the most vulnerable in society, children and older people, and those with heart and lung conditions.” 

To take part in the consultation please follow this link   

A series of drop-in events have been organised where people can discuss the draft Air Quality Action Plan with council officers. The dates are:

Temple Cloud:

26th February, 12pm – 2pm. Drop in session at St Barnabus Church.

4th March, 6pm – 8pm.  Drop in session at St Barnabus Church.

TO BE CONFIRMED 8th April, 12 – 2pm.  Drop in session in Temple Cloud Parish Hall.

Farrington Gurney

25th February, 12 – 2pm. Drop in session in Farrington Gurney village hall (social club).

CANCELLED 18th March, 6 – 8pm.  Drop in session in Farrington Gurney village hall (main hall).

TO BE CONFIRMED 30th March, 11am – 1pm. Drop in session in Farrington Gurney village hall (social club).

10/12/19 7164 Bristol & Northeast Sign Up for Free Counter Terrorism Training

Avon and Somerset Police crest

An award-winning counter terrorism training course is being made available to the public for the first time and Avon and Somerset Police want you to sign up and help protect the UK.

Devised by CT officers and security experts, the ACT Awareness eLearning package was previously only available to staff working in crowded places like shopping centres and entertainment venues.

Now Counter Terrorism Policing has decided to open up the training to anyone who wants to become a CT Citizen so they can learn how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and understand what to do in the event of a major incident.

The programme was originally devised in partnership with retail giant Marks and Spencer – and participants needed to be signed up by their employers. Today the online learning is available free of charge to anyone who wants to take part.

The decision to offer the training to the public was not made in response to the recent attack in London. However, the tragic events which took place just days ago, when two people lost their lives to terrorism, were a stark reminder of the ongoing threat and the need for vigilance.

Assistant Chief Constable Stephen Cullen said: “ACT Awareness eLearning is especially useful for anyone working in or regularly visiting crowded places. Developed alongside industry experts more than one and a half million modules have already been completed. The course has been so popular, with nine out of 10 users saying they would recommend it, we want to open it up to as many people as possible.

“The threat level remains at Substantial – meaning an attack is likely – so giving everyone the chance to be extra eyes and ears for police and local security teams help to keep all communities across the Avon and Somerset area safe. The festive period is obviously a very busy one – so this is a good time to join up and become a CT Citizen.”

ACT Awareness is made up of seven modules that take a few minutes each to complete. You can pause and re-join at any time. In total it takes just 45 minutes – so less than an hour of your time could help to prevent an attack or help save lives if one was to happen.

The course is hosted by online training specialists Highfield. To register your name and start learning, copy and paste the following link into your web browser: https://ct.highfieldelearning.com/
