Island Roads helps out at Hunnyhill Primary School

Island Roads helps out at Hunnyhill Primary School

Island Roads has helped Hunnyhill Primary School create a new construction area designed to encourage pupils to build their skills.

The school has developed a special construction zone as part of work to help early years pupils develop their personal, emotional and social skills.

Island Roads’ Operatives attended the Newport school to hand over equipment including ‘Men at Work’ and ‘Road Closed’ signs, as well as barriers, a sandbag and Island Roads’ workwear, including hi-vis tabards and hard hats.

“The children were showing an interest in construction and building because of the houses that are being built near the school site.” explained Hunnyhill Primary School’s Early Years Lead, Maxine Thompson.

“We wanted to create an outdoor construction area to help the children develop this interest with real-life tools and materials.  We assembled together a few things ourselves, but then contacted Island Roads to see if they could help the project too.

“We were delighted when they offered us some equipment, and I am sure the children will enjoy using it to help them play and learn at the same time.”

Island Roads’ Lead Operative Ryan Jackman, who delivered the equipment to the school said: “The company was really keen to do its bit to support the school’s construction project.

“We hope the pupils find the equipment useful – and we could see they were enjoying it the minute it was delivered. Hopefully it could inspire some of the children into a future career in engineering.”

Newport Emergency Warden training

Emergency Warden Training

A great opportunity for anyone who wants to make a real positive impact in the Newport area. It would suit someone who cares about their neighbours and the wider community. It would be desirable, but not essential, that the volunteer already has a network of people they know, or is involved in groups and organisations within their neighbourhood.  

The Footprint Trust is working with Newport Parish Council to further develop their network of Emergency Wardens. The role of the Wardens is to prepare the community for extreme weather conditions.  They work in their road and ward, to identify vulnerable people, and make sure that they have the support in place in case of flooding or energy outages. 

Free training is provided, giving Wardens first aid skills and details of support available to their community. All trained wardens are insured by Newport Parish Council. The scheme covers the areas of Newport, Carisbrooke and Gunville. Each volunteer can give as much as they are able. The minimum would be an average of 2 hours per month.

For more information please ring Newport Parish Council on 559119.  

The date for training is Saturday 17th February (venue given to those signing up).

Press Release – Working Together To Reduce Reoffending

See below for a press release received from Isle of Wight Council:

WORKING TOGETHER TO REDUCE REOFFENDING

More than 80 professionals have attended a “Working Together to Reduce Reoffending” conference that took place on the Island.

Organised by the Isle of Wight Community Safety Partnership (CSP), the event provided specialists with updates on key issues from a range of national and local speakers.

As well as providing important discussions on matters such as why people offend and how this could be prevented, the conference focussed specifically on agency working in partnership to reduce reoffending.

“I am happy to support this conference and have the opportunity to engage and network to find best practice and understand further the important role all agencies have in preventing reoffending rates on the Island,” said Gary Peace, Cabinet member for community safety and public protection.

“There were a number of interesting and valuable presentations on the day and preventing offending in the first place is a key priority for us; as is helping ensure those that are on the path to reoffending can realise the opportunities they have to avoid this.”

Speakers on the day included Portsmouth boxing coach Q Shillingford – who was previously awarded an MBE – who spoke on the reoffending prevention techniques he uses at the Heart of Portsmouth (HoP) Boxing Club and Rachel Goldhill, senior lecturer from the University of Portsmouth’s Institute of Criminal Justice Studies.

Amanda Gregory, CSP chair, said: “The conference was a great opportunity to share examples of best practice and gain useful feedback, which will enable key partners to develop a strategy aimed at reducing reoffending.

“The CSP is committed to decreasing these rates on the Isle of Wight and the conference plays an essential part in bringing together key partners to support the work we all do.”

Other keynote speakers included Nikki Shave, interchange manager and Kim Thornden-Edwards, chief executive, of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Rehabilitation Company; Lisa Morgan from the Isle of Wight Youth Offending Team; Robbie Turkington, the multi-agency public protection arrangement co-ordinator for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight and Andy Gill and Tony Walker from Restorative Solutions, who closed the presentations with a talk about restorative justice and success stories.
