“Be the one” campaign aims to prevent deaths

A new joint campaign between Rotherham Council and our local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been launched to raise awareness of the steps we can all take to “Be the One” to save a life and prevent suicide.

Sadly we know that our own community has been touched by suicide over the last few years, which is why we have supported efforts to get people the help and support that they need. But we also know that more people still need that support.

The moving video (above) and a new website – www.be-the-one.co.uk – have been produced to help to signpost those that need it towards services, but also asks businesses and individuals to make their own commitment, and to be aware of how they can help someone in who is facing a crisis.

As the website says, we must all learn how to look out for one another and do our bit to help those in distress.

Help to shape the council’s approach to licensed activity

Until the 27th September, Rotherham Council is asking for information and views from residents as the first stage in reviewing its statements of policy for licensing and gambling.

The policies cover areas such as the sale of alcohol and licensed premises, music and entertainment and hot food takeaways. Whilst the council is bound by national rules and legislation, it is also required to take into account local needs and circumstances.

We know that the night time economy has a significant effect on our community and your views and experiences – whether positive or negative – can help to inform the council’s approach in the future.

You can read the Cabinet report which sets out the process and gives more details here.

Wickersley subway looking good!

If you’ve been through the subway under Bawtry Road recently, you can’t fail to have noticed the bright new artwork which has been produced by students from Wickersley School in conjunction with Artful.

We asked the students to pick up the challenge of smartening up the subway and funded the project through our devolved ward budget. You can read more about the project and see how it developed over on our council Neighbourhoods page by clicking here.

We hope you agree that they’ve done a great job!

If you’ve other ideas for future schemes or areas that need cleaning up, please drop us a line.
