 2017 Festival Feedback Minimize

Feedback from the Hadlow Down Festival 2017  Thank you to everyone who gave us feedback on the Festival. We have included surveys sent in and Facebook and e-mail comments and these have been collated into a report.
From the feedback we received, it has brought local organisations and the community together in providing a range of events, activities, workshops, sports and celebrations, some of which were brand new events. It is planned that the Open Gardens will be expanded to include more gardens next year. The Scarecrow trail, Beating the Bounds and the Village Hall quiz will be organised again and it is anticipated that the Art Exhibition may be a bi-annual event. The new Beavers/Scouts pack in the village has started and is proving very popular and following positive feedback from parents, the HDPFA has offered to run an after school junior cricket club next summer.
Therefore, the benefits for the village are not just for 2017 but there will be a lasting long-term legacy to the Festival. Therefore, the evidence shows that the Festival has been a positive experience for Hadlow Down village and the majority of the outcomes were achieved. Please copy the link below for the full analysis report, or if you would like to be sent a copy please e-mail me at deniseleary86@gmail.com 
Thank you again to everyone for making such a successful village Festival.
Denise Leary, Festival Project Manager

Hadlow Down Online first appeared in 2004 when  the domain name ‘hadlowdown.com’ was acquired by a village benefactor who also researched and set up a platform/framework for a site and allowed it to be operated through his personal server.  The original concept of the site was to provide the Hadlow Down community with a quality vehicle to receive and disseminate local news and items of interest very quickly and to provide an interactive means whereby residents could communicate, debate or convey their ideas using modern technology.  The site would always stay completely independent, apolitical and free of any advertisements or other external influences from any organisation, agency, group or individual that may compromise its independence.  The site would also stay completely free of charge to all users and would not solicit funds from any source that may influence its independence.  The administration and editing would always be performed by an unpaid volunteer.

This is a message sent via Neighbourhood Watch. This information has been sent on behalf of Action Fraud (National Fraud Intelligence Bureau)
Message sent by Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has identified a number of reports where job seekers are being targeted by fraudsters trying to obtain personal and banking details from them, or requesting money to secure accommodation. 

Individuals registering with job seeking websites or searching for jobs on The Student Room website are being contacted by bogus recruitment companies/businesses asking them to complete application and interview forms which request personal details and banking details, as well as copies of identity documents.
In some instances the applicant is invited along for interview, either in person or over the phone, to make the process look as legitimate as possible. This is impacting on students and graduates looking for work both in the UK and overseas.

Today (Friday 10 November) Citizens Advice has responded to Ofcom's announcement that broadband companies will automatically compensate customers for slow repairs, missed appointments and delayed installations.

Gillian Guy, chief executive of Citizens Advice, said:

"People rely on broadband for many of their daily activities, but all too often providers fail to deliver the service their customers are paying for. That’s why we’ve been calling for consumers to be automatically compensated when they’re left without a connection through no fault of their own.

"The introduction of this voluntary scheme means that consumers will no longer have to waste valuable time negotiating with providers, and is therefore welcome. However, it’s essential that Ofcom holds the broadband companies to account through strict reporting to ensure consumers receiv

Following a spate of burglaries in your area by applying a few prevention methods you can make your home less attractive to burglars.
Keep all wallets, purses, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.
If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows.
An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars, seek advice to ensure it is the most suitable for your needs.
Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name.
Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler.
Register your property at immobolise.com, it is free and helps police identify the owners of recovered property thousands of times a day.
A burglary in your own home is a devastating experience that can affect you and your family long after the incident has occurred.
Lets make it difficult for would be offenders to target your home by thinking of implementing some of the crime prevention ideas.
