New ‘Nightingale Court’ opens at University of Hull

By | Local News | No Comments

The new site will be in the recently revamped, Victorian-era Canham Turner building. It will provide an extra courtroom that will hear civil and family cases – providing additional capacity at Hull Crown Court.

Temporary ‘Nightingale’ courts, have been set up across the country to enable more socially distanced trials to take place, ensuring justice continues to be served.

This is because more space is required than was previously the case due to the need to keep everyone distanced in the buildings – such as jurors, witnesses, court staff, legal professionals and judges.

Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey

By | Consultations, Local News | No Comments

Share your knowledge about our unique marine and coastal environment

You are invited to take part in the 2021 Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey Identifying environmental priorities, highlighting information gaps, and sharing knowledge with the Yorkshire Marine Nature Partnership.

Despite the challenges of 2020, significant progress was made in establishing the Yorkshire Marine Nature Partnership. Whilst they can’t yet meet face to face, throughout 2021, they’ll be continuing to build on the foundations that they’ve created and exploring how the partnership can support, facilitate and enhance more collaboration across Yorkshire’s incredible marine and coastal environment.

A key element of the Development Project is finding out where the strengths are along the Yorkshire coast, where knowledge might need to be improved, and who they can connect with to make long-lasting progress.

So, they’re kicking off the new year with the launch of the Yorkshire Coast Mapping Survey, which they would like you to get involved with.

Follow the link to tell them what your environmental priorities are, where you think new projects could build their understanding and how your expertise and skills could support us.  You’ll also be able to share information via a live mapping portal, which will help to build a more complete picture of activities, initiatives and knowledge gaps, across Yorkshire’s marine and coastal environment.

Important update on Jobcentre services and opening times

By | Local News, National News | No Comments

To help keep customers and colleagues as safe as possible in the latest phase of the pandemic, the Department has decided jobcentre opening hours will be 10am to 2pm beginning on Monday the 18th January 2021.

This temporary change means staff can continue providing safe, essential services for those who need to come into the Jobcentre and who are unable to interact with them on the phone or digitally. The opening hours of the phone lines remain as they were. In addition, the Relay UK service and the Video relay service are both still available.

Anyone entering a Jobcentre will be required to wear a face covering, unless they are in an exempt category. Please remember the latest government guidance on meeting with others safely and lockdown restrictions

If the Jobcentre need to make an appointment with a customer, this will be by phone. They will leave a message in their journal before they call.

If a customer attends the Jobcentre during the new opening hours – they will be greeted front of house staff and triaged first to see if they cannot get the support needed via the Telephone / UC Journal etc. Only in exceptional circumstances will a face to face appointment be offered.

Ready, steady, census: virtual drop-ins

By | Local News | No Comments

Census 2021 will provide a snapshot of modern society

Households across the East Riding of Yorkshire will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.

“A successful census will ensure everyone from local government to charities can put services and funding in the places where they are most needed,” Iain Bell, deputy national statistician at the Office for National Statistics, said.

“This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, schools and new transport routes. That’s why it is so important everyone takes part and we have made it easier for people to do so online on any device, with help and paper questionnaires for those that need them.”

Census day will be on March 21, but households across the country will receive letters with online codes allowing them to take part from early March.

The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. And, for the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Results will be available within 12 months, although personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.

For more information, visit www.census.gov.uk

Or contact your local Census Engagement Manager: harry.crompton50@field.census.gov.uk ; 017452 943159

Harry will be holding an open drop-in meeting from 3-4pm on Thursdays until the end of March.

Everyone is welcome to pass-by with any questions or offers of support they may have.
