Huntingdon Community Chest

We were delighted to attend the award ceremony at the
Huntingdonshire District Council office last October. We had
received a grant of £3000. Along with other grant recipients we were
presented with a community chest certificate.

On Friday September 23 2016, the Duke of Gloucester visited the
scheme to celebrate its 15th anniversary and to recognise the work of
the charity.
Lord Lieutenant Sir Hugh Duberly received the Duke and presented
him to the Chair of Trustees Judy Pearson, and the Trust staff, who
explained the work of the scheme and the impact their work has on
the most vulnerable people in the county. He also met some partners,
including the Fire Service and Age UK, and beneficiaries of the
charity

New Bobby Van

We have finally replaced one of our two vans for a new Ford transit Connect. Both Steve and Jeff travel quite a few miles across Cambridgeshire visiting homes and carrying out security checks. We have been wanting to replace the vans for quite a while but something called funding has always got in the way! But it was time to bite the bullet as Steve’s van was now nearly 10 years old with over 100,000 mileage on the clock. Without the vans we can’t provide a service and we would not exist. The vans, therefore have to be totally reliable.
The Constabulary helped us source the new van which arrived on Monday. We were very grateful for their help. Yesterday UVL [ United Van Liners] came and fitted the ply lining and racking inside the van and added the signage to the outside. We were very impressed with their service and as you can see the van looks very smart!
Do keep an eye out for the van as Steve will be driving the van around Cambridge City, South and East Cambridgeshire and St Neots.
We now need to replace Jeff’s van so if anyone knows any company that would like to help us purchase one for him, please do get in touch on 01480 413311.

We Have Moved!

On March 1st 2016 we re located our office to Yaxley Police Station, 1 Queen Street, Yaxley, PE7 3JE. Our telephone numbers remain the same.
After 4 years based at Sawtry Police House, the Police Federation has kindly allowed us to use the ground floor of their offices in Yaxley. We of course miss our “home” in Sawtry but looked forward to continuing our service in our new premises. We would like to take this opportunity of thanking the Constabulary for all the support they have given to make our stay in Sawtry very welcoming, enjoyable and stress free!
We continue to provide the same service in 2016. As well as helping vulnerable people feel safer in their own homes, we also are working in partnership with the Fire Service and carry out Home Fire Safety checks at every visit we do
