    Hi Caroline, how could I not reply to your email?! My guilt would overwhelm me! I will dig out my Christmas Carol song sheets from my old choir ready for a meeting later this year!

    The Independent Health Advisory Group (IHAG) are looking for volunteers to ‘mystery shop’ the new 111 service. The idea is that a group of volunteers who have access to a phone and computer (for email feedback) during the day, will be rung by 111 trainers at an agreed/convenient time and then put through to a trainee.

    The volunteer would have a scenario sheet to read from. This should improve training and make the service more robust.

    If you would like to volunteer your time, please contact me, Martin Hopkins, Boughton Aluph and Eastwell Parish Clerk, at Boughtoneastwellclerk@gmail.com with your name and a telephone contact number and I will forward your details to IHAG.

    Closing date end of September

    KCC are currently undertaking a consultation on street lighting.

    The plan is to convert just over a half of all street lights to ‘part-night’ lighting, switching them off between the hours of midnight and 5.30am.

    KCC do not intend to turn off town centre lights, areas with CCTV, antisocial behaviour areas, at busy road junctions, roundabouts or sites with road safety issues.

    The aim is to save £1million from the kCC budget.

    More information can be found at http://www.kent.gov.uk/streetlights

    The consultation ends on 23rd August 2013.
