Dear Residents

Usually we are emailing to update you on Kings Hill but today we are pleased to share the information that you see below.

This group shows again how Finham is a wonderful caring community.  We wish them well and hope that you print the leaflets for those neighbours who may not use the internet but could need the support of this group in the weeks ahead.

Stay safe.

Kind Regards

Angela and Bob Fryer

 

Styvechale and Finham Empower Community buddy group (Covid-19)

We are a trusted network of volunteers covering the Stivichall, Finham and Wainbody areas. We are here to help those in need during the Coronavirus crisis, whilst keeping ourselves and others safe.

Our aim is to build a more connected community by acting with positivity and humanity, rather than panic, fear and distrust.

We have over 100 volunteers, all happy to help elderly and/or vulnerable residents with any practical assistance such as errands etc.

At the moment we are focusing on helping the elderly and/or vulnerable in our community, especially those who perhaps live alone and need help.

We can also be a friendly voice at the end of the telephone, for people feeling socially isolated and in need of a chat (although we are not trained counsellors).

Our organisation is endorsed by St. Martin’s Church, St James’s Church, Councillor Mattie Heaven, Parish Councillor Angela Fryer, Neighbourhood Watch and Finham Library, amongst others.

We have the necessary protocols in place such as a Code of Conduct, ID checks, Transaction Records for shopping deliveries, and a GDPR policy (drawn up by a lawyer who is part of our volunteer team).

Your support would be much appreciated in terms of endorsing us and passing this info on to people who may benefit. Even if practical assistance isn’t required, just the reassurance that our community is supporting each other may help reduce feelings of anxiety and social isolation.

Our FB group is: Styvechale and Finham Empower Community buddy group (covid-19).

You are most welcome to join the above group, which now has over 500 members since being created on Saturday. Our intention is to reassure and assist where possible, and absolutely not to increase fear or raise anxiety levels. Any inappropriate or unhelpful posts (scaremongering etc) are swiftly removed.

Kind regards,

Lisa and Jane

Message from Angel Fryer

 

Dear Residents

Due to the restrictions in place during the Corona Virus epidemic, we have decided to suspend FRA meetings until further notice.

This means that the Annual General Meeting  at the end of the month will not take place.  However for your information I attach a copy of the Annual Accounts which would have been given to you by Anthony Dalton, Treasurer, at this meeting.

The Committee continue to press forward with their objections to the proposed housing on Kings Hill and will keep you informed of any developments.  The Government is now stating that millions of trees must be planted to slow down Climate Change.  We can all write to the Ministers asking them to prevent established trees and hedgerows from being destroyed on Kings Hill.

Keep safe.

Petition against Bus Gate PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sue Jones   
Sunday, 11 August 2019 11:47

Are you aware that after years of campaigning and petitioning with Coventry City Council and Warwick District Council they are still pursuing their need for a bus gate and roundabout at the end of Green Lane? This is despite repeated alternatives being presented to them.

Finham Residents Association and Finham Parish Council continue efforts to shape this development into something that is widely acceptable.

If you are also unhappy with this situation, we urge and encourage you to submit your views on:
https://myaccount.coventry.gov.uk/Petitions

Let Coventry City Council and Warwick District Council KNOW what you want because in the very near future it will be too late.
