AGENDA FOR ANNUAL TOWN MEETING OF PATCHWAY
Thursday 9 May 2013
Article 1235 | Published - May 9th, 2013
To celebrate Volunteers’ Week 2013, the volunteer centres in South Glos are inviting members of the volunteering community to take part in a visual celebration of volunteering. Whether you are a volunteer, or someone who works with volunteer, they would like to bring together images and stories from people who contribute their time to benefit their community and environment.
“Volunteering has a hugely positive effect on people’s lives and those around them. People don’t always know how much it goes on and the breadth of roles that are available. This is a fantastic opportunity to shout about volunteering and show people what a great contribution it makes to both individuals and communities.” – Corrina Buchanan, Volunteer Centre Patchway.
The Volunteer Centre wants to hear what you get out of volunteering and why you do it. What has volunteering bought in to your life and how have you been able to help others? How important are volunteers to your helping your organisation? What service do they provide, what would happen if they weren’t there? How does your community benefit from volunteering? How have volunteers impacted the world around them? Do people know that volunteers help in your organisation?
The collection of entries will be displayed at South Glos Libraries during Volunteers’ Week from June 1st–7th. Entries should be submitted by May 20th via e-mail or post: Volunteer Centre, The Hub, Rodway Road, Patchway, BS34 5PE.

Measures to conserve energy by switching off street lights between 12 midnight and 5.00am have reduced South Gloucestershire’s annual carbon emissions by 12% and are already saving approximately £90,000 in energy costs each year. About 6,000 of the district’s 29,500 street lights have been switched to part night operation since the scheme was adopted by the council in 2008. By the time the scheme is fully implemented in October this year about 60% of the district ‘s street lights, or approximately 20,000 lights will have been switched to part night operation.
Once fully implemented the scheme is expected to reduce the district’s carbon emission by a total of 2,00 tonnes a year-equivalent to the annual emissions of approximately 900 cars. It so also expected to reduce the council’s lighting related energy bills by up to £250,00 or about a fifth of its total street lighting energy costs. Mark King Head of Street Care , said “ Before implementation all lights are assessed to establish whether they are suitable for part night operation. About 40% of lights, including those near roundabouts, emergency services, sheltered housing and known areas of high crime are automatically excluded from the scheme for safety or security reasons. After implementation the council will continue to work with the police and other agencies to monitor the operation of the scheme within each area.
Full details of the scheme can be found at www.southglos.gov.uk/partnightlighting or you can call at the Town Council offices at Callicroft House in Rodway Road during office hours to see the plans of the proposals for Patchway.
