Adders in Ketton Old Quarry

As a result of the recent warm weather adders are out and about in Ketton Old Quarry and other

adjacent areas. An adder can be recognised by its distinctive dark zig zag down the length of the

spine. Although venomous, adders are not aggressive and only bite as a last means if defence,

usually if caught or trodden on - the advice is to treat adders with respect and leave them alone. If

you are, or think that you have been, bitten by an adder, it is best to get to A&E as soon as

possible for treatment - Peterborough A&E is the nearest. With proper treatment the worst effects

will be nausea, followed by drowsiness, with swelling and bruising in the area of the bite.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 

 


 

 
 
A group of volunteers from the village are meeting every Wednesday morning from 9.30am at the end of Redmiles Lane to help rebuild this dry stone boundary wall to Hall Close, under the tuition of Richard, an expert dry stone waller.
 
If you would like to join in on a regular or occasional basis, just turn up, or contact Sarah, clerk to Ketton Parish Council, in person at the Parish Office, Stocks Hill, (open Wednesdays and Thursdays, 09.00 to 16.00 ), or
tel: 01780 722451.
 
Gloves and safety goggles will be provided but please wear stout boots.

Temporary Gate Closures - Ketton Old Quarry - from 19 July 2017

Jenny Harris (Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust), has sent this notification regarding some temporary gate closures in Ketton Old Quarry which will affect walkers there.

 
We shall be moving the sheep from Lower Priory field (Station Road) to The Valley tomorrow, 19th July.
 
The grass and coarse plants have been growing apace and this is affecting the smaller, special plants of the limestone grassland.  This is particularly noticeable in The Valley, where I could not find any Autumn Gentian, and very little Yellow-wort when I visited on Friday.  The best control for the coarse plants is to graze the area over the summer, when they are palatable to the sheep and it will give the smaller plants a chance to come through.  Because of problems we, and others grazing sites with public access, have had in the past I shall be closing The Valley to visitors from tomorrow while the sheep are present and the gates will be locked.  This may be for as much as a month.
 
I do apologise for the inconvenience for people who like to visit the reserve, but the other grassland areas will still be open, and the wooded area and North Glade will still be accessible from Pit Lane.

(Please do not reply or forward this email directly; please use the Reply, Share buttons at the bottom of this message)
Message sent by
Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)

There has been a series of recent incidents reported to Action Fraud where a lone fraudster has approached victims whom they believe to be unfamiliar with the local area. They make an excuse to talk to the victims such as enquiring about directions or offering a recommendation for a good hotel.
 
After this interaction, several other fraudsters will intervene purporting to be police officers in plain clothes and will sometimes present false identification as proof. The fake officers will then give a reason to examine the victims’ wallet, purse or personal items. They may also examine the first fraudster’s items or try to tell victims that the first fraudster is suspicious in order to gain victim trust and appear more realistic in their guise.
 
After all the fake police ‘checks’ are finished, victims have then reported being handed back their personal items only to later realise that a quantity of money or valuables were missing.
 
How to protect yourself:
  • If an individual claims to be a police officer ask for their name and rank, force, and examine any identification presented; this is always good practice but especially important if they are not wearing a uniform.
  • The Police will never ask for your passwords or PIN details. Do not give this information to anyone.
  • The Police will never request that you withdraw/transfer any money to them or to a ‘safe’ account.
  • If you have been affected by this, or any other fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting

HELP SHAPE RUTLAND’S LOCAL PLAN
 
Residents are being given the opportunity to share their views and help shape Rutland’s Local Plan, during an eight-week consultation that runs until Monday 25th September.
 
The Local Plan provides planning policies for the whole of Rutland, as well as identifying the main locations for future development in the County.
 
The latest version of the Local Plan is currently being reviewed with the aim of extending the plan period from 2026 to 2036, setting out where additional new housing, employment and other development will be needed during this time.
 
As part of this process, the Council is seeking people’s views on a new Draft Local Plan that identifies provisional sites for additional employment, retail, waste management and minerals-related development, along with space for approximately 1,700 additional new homes to meet housing needs in Rutland over the plan period.
 
Cllr Oliver Hemsley, Portfolio Holder for Growth, Trading Services and Resources, said: “This is a great opportunity for local people to get involved and help shape future development in Rutland. One of the Council’s main aims is to help deliver sustainable growth in the county – growth that meets the needs of both current and future generations of residents while also protecting our rural environment. We are keen to hear feedback from residents and local businesses to ensure the Local Plan reflects the needs, expectations and views of our community.”
 
In addition to information available on the website, the Council is holding a series of exhibitions where people can find out more about the key proposals. Residents will also be given the chance to speak with Planning Officers at community roadshows that are being held throughout August and September. Details of when and where the exhibitions and roadshows will be are as follows:

Feedback on the Plan can be submitted using the online response form provided or in writing to: The Planning Policy Manager, Rutland County Council, Catmose, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 6HP.
 
Once the consultation is complete, Rutland County Council will consider all comments received before preparing a submission version of the Local Plan in early in 2018.
