What3Words

We are encouraging our community to download the what3words app on their phones in case they need to call 999.

Every 3m square has been assigned 3 words so that it makes it easier for services like the police or ambulance etc to find you as they can pick this up from your phone call.

The app is totally free to download and use, you can download it on iOS or Android here.

You can find a full list of those services that accept what3words here: https://what3words.com/news/emergency/three-words-for-a-faster-emergency-response. Your community could also use what3words to report incidents with organisations like National Grid, Network Rail and the Environmental Agency: https://what3words.com/report-incident-locations-efficiently.

Free Tree Scheme Returns!

The Free Tree Scheme Returns

The Free Tree Scheme initiative forms part of Rushcliffe authority’s strategy to provide further sustainable environments across communities in the Borough with the chosen tree species native to the Borough.

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Executive Manager for Communities Dave Mitchell said in 2019 when the scheme was first launched: “Thank you if you applied to the scheme, we are delighted with the response.

“There was also good interest in our tree warden scheme to protect and help trees to flourish in our towns and villages, so as ever we’re really pleased with Rushcliffe residents’ commitment to the environment.

“We hope that by increasing the number of trees in the Borough, as our communities grow, our green environments will continue to do so too and improve the quality of life for current and future residents.”

Coronavirus – Bunny Neighbour Support

As the coronavirus pandemic grows, there will be an increasing need for our community to pull together and support those who need to isolate. The kind of help people need will vary but could include delivery of shopping, collection of prescriptions, or - for someone living alone - a regular phone call to check they are okay. To make self-isolation effective, close contact with other people must be kept to a minimum, therefore ideally each person needing help will have this help provided by just one or two persons. To try and achieve this, what we plan to do is to establish a buddy system, where everyone in need of support is given details of a buddy who is willing to help them during this time.....
