Look how far we’ve come! Celebrating Staying Well in Elland

Posted on

20160720_192855On Wednesday 20 July the Elland Staying Well Hub held an event to celebrate the achievements of the project in Elland, Stainland and Greetland so far.

Local community groups and organisations were invited along to Elland Cricket Athletic & Bowling Club to showcase their work in these areas. Those attending included Elland & District Partnership, Chit Chat Group, Bethesda Church, Cartwheel, Yorkshire Community Connections, Let’s Just Do It, CREW and Bluebird Care.

The Adult Brass class who received funding from the project, kicked off proceedings by playing three pieces for the attendees conducted by Sam Harrison.

20160720_193728Elland Staying Well Worker, Rachel Swaby then highlighted the work in the community over the last 18 months and how, through anecdotal evidence and statistical analysis, the Staying Well project has achieved the goals set out at its inception, which were to reduce loneliness and isolation in older people and create more connected communities.

Comments overheard during the night were unanimous in agreeing that “it’s been good for Elland…It’s just what Elland needed.”

Win Theaker of the Chit Chat Group said

The funding we got means we can stop panicking about money and plan ahead properly…expand the work we do, get bigger and better next year!”

whilst another community group member added

“I know most of us knew each other’s groups before, but it’s like we are more together now and we’ve also made new contacts and come out of our shells.”

A film titled ‘Real Stories’ was shown and gave a particularly touching recount of how the Staying Well project has helped 3 local residents when they needed it most, and was followed by an impromptu ‘Thank you’ speech to Rachel from a 96 year old member of the audience, who is also a member of several of the community groups that were present.

Is your dog chipped? Don’t risk a £500 fine

Posted on

microchip-sign-on-dog_0Hundreds of thousands of dog owners could be fined for failing to microchip their pets by tomorrow

Over one million dogs have not yet been microchipped, more than one in eight dogs out of the UK’s estimated canine population, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said.

From Wednesday 6 April, dog owners MUST make sure their pet is fitted with a microchip by the time it is eight weeks old, or face a fine of up to £500.

If a dog becomes lost or gets stolen and is picked up by a local authority or a shelter, the microchip can be scanned and matched to contact details stored on a database.

Charities such as the Dogs Trust, some local councils and some vets will microchip dogs for free.

Pets at Home also have an offer on microchipping your dog for just £10 until Friday 15 April 2016 (subject to availability).
