RUSHCLIFFE BOROUGH COUNCIL – HANDY HOUSEKEEPERS SERVICE TO HELP OUR ELDERLEY

RUSHCLIFFE BOROUGH COUNCIL – HANDY HOUSEKEEPERS SERVICE

Handy Housekeepers Help Home-Lovers

Rushcliffe CVS is excited to launch a new service which is called Handy Housekeepers. RCVS is providing help at home for a very reasonable cost and staff will carry out cleaning, washing, ironing, changing beds, shopping and light household tasks. Lifting heavy weights, gardening or carrying out any personal care won’t be provided. Staff are thoroughly vetted and insured and initially the service is available anywhere in Rushcliffe. The cost of this service is £15 per hour and pro rata for half an hour.

Handy Housekeepers is ideal for elderly people who can’t do as much as they used to do, but who are still house-proud or want to be independent.

Rebecca Archibald, service manager, said: “A recent survey demonstrated the need for this service and we contacted potential customers who were keen to join. Unlike other services, Rushcliffe CVS already has a bedrock of caring for the elderly people. We’ll expand the service as demand grows. We will visit people at home and tailor the service according to their requirements.”

SAFETY NOTICE – SKATE PARK CROPWELL BISHOP PLAYING FIELDS

SAFETY NOTICE

Members of the public have carried out repair work on the skate ramp with the intention of making the facility available to use and saving public funds. This work has been carried out free of charge and was well meant.

However, as the work was not authorised by the Parish Council or carried out by an approved contractor our insurers have informed us that use of the skate ramp is no longer covered by our public liability insurance. Sadly, we have to now inform anyone who uses this equipment does so at their own risk.
