SDC Business Team have invited the PopUp Business School to run a START & BUILD A BUSINESS TRAINING EVENT to help support people across the District. The more people that attend this online event the more businesses we will help to build! The PopUp Business School approach is very different, and they specialise in helping people that are at a disadvantage or new to starting a business. Here are the details:

The National Grid Team have been making some improvements at their Newbold Pacey site on Newbold Road. They have replaced the perimeter fence, installed new access gates and upgraded the lighting and CCTV. It’s routine work and part of their ongoing commitment to look after the land they own.
We can now confirm that they have completed their work. They send their thanks for your patience and
understanding while they’ve been on-site during construction and while we tested the lights and other
Please contact our Community Relations team if you have any queries. They’re available daily 7am-7pm

We need volunteers to help get local patients to receive the Coronavirus vaccination.
Have you got some spare time during the day?
We expect to be very busy in January, February, and March once the vaccination programme begins to roll out. We are going to need many more:
Volunteer drivers: If you have a clean driving license and would like to help people in your community who would otherwise struggle to get to their vaccination appointment and home again, please get in touch. 45p mileage costs paid.
Telephone operators: Have you got your own computer, decent admin skills and like talking on the telephone? We need plenty of people to help take transport bookings to vaccination appointments. If you could spare one or two mornings or afternoons a week we would love to hear from you? Volunteering from home with training & support.
To help, please call 01789 262889 or email email@example.com

Thanks to everyone who has contributed photographs and information about houses in Newbold Pacey and Ashorne! We are now taking orders for the book.
‘Newbold Pacey and Ashorne: 2020 vision’ is a beautiful book of nearly 50 pages of photographs and stories of the houses and households as they are in 2020. It is a reference point for future generations wishing to research both Newbold Pacey and Ashorne, as well as providing a memory for all those currently living in the villages.
You can choose between the coloured and bound paperback version at £22.50, or printed copies of the individual pages held together with a removable spine at £14.99. All profits from these books will be divided equally between Newbold Pacey and Ashorne Village Hall and St George’s Church, Newbold Pacey.
Please fill in the order form and return to Kate Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and no later than 15.12.20.
Once total numbers are known, final printing will take place and hopefully the books will be available before Christmas.
Payment is required on hand-delivery of these books. (No postage costs have been included in these figures).
Not the most glamorous date for your diary, but please note the temporary closure of Church Road planned for 23 November 2020. This closure is required to enable carriageway patching and associated works to be carried out and is only anticipated to last for the day.
There will be no diversion in place - access to be maintained where possible to businesses and residents only.
Before coronavirus struck, demand for community transport was rising dramatically in Warwickshire, driven by the needs of some of our most vulnerable residents. Those who needed help to get to hospitals and health services … to stroke clubs, dance classes and many more social activities. To do things many of us then took for granted! And until March, when pandemic hit, this was what VASA helped to provide every day.
In the meantime, we’ve managed to restart our transport service for medical appointments thanks to our fantastic team of volunteers. Community spirit is at an all time high - and we need you to help us keep up the great work too! We’re keen to recruit more drivers as soon as possible as demand is starting to rise again and more people need to get to medical appointments. Here’s how you can help our vulnerable passengers as a volunteer.
For some people, you may be the only person they can chat to that day. Knowing they can rely on someone who’ll turn up on time, drive them to the right place and be ready to collect them after their appointment, makes them feel more confident and less stressed. And community transport is usually much cheaper than using taxis.
As a volunteer driver, you’ll enjoy flexible hours to suit your lifestyle. The work may be challenging and also great fun! You can make a difference to other people’s lives in a very short time - and it can change your life too, giving you new interests and confidence.
We’ve taken every precaution to make our service as safe and supportive as possible for drivers and passengers alike. This includes providing volunteers with a written agreement, detailed guidance and procedures to follow, PPE (including face masks for drivers and passengers) and practical advice.
Can you join our drive to change lives as a community transport driver? If you’re interested in volunteering, please get in touch immediately: call VASA on 01789 262889 or email email@example.com. We’d like to hear from you even if you can’t start straight away.
