Fruit Tree Planting at Blackshaw Head

Planting of fruit trees on the land belonging to Carol & Garry King will take place on Sunday 1st March at 10am. Anyone is welcome to come and give a hand for an hour. Children are welcome too if supervised by an adult.
You can walk to the site from the New Delight Inn (Newdy) in less than five minutes. Just go along the road next to the red telephone box at Jack Bridge, which runs along the stream uphill.
If you have not planted trees before there will be people present to show you how to do it. BEAT is covered by an insurance policy. If you do not know where the site is go to the New Delight Inn and walk from there as it will only take a few minutes to walk to the site along the stream where the red telephone box is.
If you have a spade or can borrow one please bring it along. Do not worry if you cannot bring a spade as we have spare ones. If you do not like digging you can put newspapers around the planted trees with a hessian mat on top to act as mulching. You are also welcome to bring newspapers and magazines on 1st March – even if you cannot participate in the activities.
If the site is covered by heavy snow on the day we will postpone the tree planting. If you want to check in advance email finn.jensen@rocketmail.com or phone 01422 846863.
After the tree planting BEAT will be providing vegan soup with bread and a drink (beer, wine, tea, coffee, hot chocolate or juice) at the New Delight as a thank you and to warm you up again. This will also give you a chance to ask questions to experienced fruit growers if you are considering planting fruit trees and bushes in your garden.
Once the community orchard provides fruit, members of the community can help themselves to fruit but only for their personal use. Surplus will be given to the food bank in Todmorden and to Great Rock Coop

CS Safeguarding Forum
Wednesday 14th January, 1.30-3.30pm
Community Room, Illingworth Fire Station
Presentation from Ian Burgess – MCA Lead, CMBC

Background
Mental Capacity Act
The Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) creates a framework to provide protection for people who cannot make decisions for themselves. It contains provision for assessing whether people have the mental capacity to make decisions, procedures for making decisions on behalf of people who lack mental capacity and safeguards. The underlying philosophy of the MCA is that any decision made, or action taken, on behalf of someone who lacks the capacity to make the decision or act for themselves must be made in their best interests.
The MCA came into force on 1 October 2007.
The session will cover the 2 stage test for assessing mental capacity, the 5 Principles which underpin everything in the Act and will also detail how and when to assess mental capacity and who does it / who is responsible (not always the same).
Who should attend?
Anyone who provides a service for vulnerable adults (adults at risk) and/or who is responsible for safeguarding within their organisation.

This is an informal session with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

*Places are limited so please confirm attendance as soon as convenient by emailing steveb@nbforum.org.uk
