1 3 TOWNS PARTNERSHIP E-BULLETIN ISSUE TEN - 8 JUNE 2012 FACEBOOK Please 'like' our page at to get up to date information, photographs and notification of events and meetings in the 3 Towns area. WILLINGTON PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING EVENT People living in Willington have had their say on how money is spent in their local area. Three Towns Area Action Partnership (AAP) held a public vote event on May 28 and invited local residents along to choose from their seven favourite projects hoping to secure a share of the 8,000 available. It s Up 2 U 2012 gave local organisations, schools and voluntary and community groups in Willington the opportunity to receive funding up to 2,000 to deliver a local project. The groups behind the initiatives presented their ideas and the public were then given the chance to vote for their projects with Hunwick Cricket Club coming out tops to secure 1200 to transform a meeting room in the pavilion and improve toilet facilities. Sandy Denney, AAP Co-ordinator said It was fantastic to see so many people turn out to have their say on what and where funding should be allocated in their community. Feedback was excellent and 96% of all the people who attended said they had learnt about other organisations that are in their area. I would just like to say a big thank you to all those involved The Phoenix Centre also secured 2000 to expand the existing car park at the rear of the centre and Parkside Community Association Football Club is being given 1700 to provide 17 days of football activities during the school holidays. Other successful projects included Willington Community Action Environmental Group who are hoping to use the 1600 to improve the appearance of Greater Willington and Willington Football Club who will use 1500 for a ground maintenance project to purchase, amongst other things, a ride on mower. The event was open to anyone living and working in Willington and was attended by over 100 people. Check out the photos from the event on our Facebook page

DOG FOULING AND LITTER FOCUS GROUPS Durham County Council and Durham Constabulary are organising a series of focus groups aimed at helping to improve the services we deliver to deal with dog fouling and litter in our communities. Initially the focus groups were intended for residents who had previously identified those issues as a problem in a Durham Constabulary Community Survey; however, due to a low response rate from that group of individuals, we are happy to open them up to AAP forum members who would like to help. The aim of the focus groups is to clarify what aspects of the issues are of most concern and to identify changes that could be made to improve the services we provide. Details of the four sessions we have planned are set out below and those interested in helping can apply to attend any one of them (i.e. individuals don't have to go to the one nearest their home if it isn't convenient for them). Bishop Auckland Town Hall 10:00 to 11:30 on 19 June Lamplight Centre, Front Street, Stanley 18:00 to 19:30 on 20 June The Pavilion, Helford Road, Peterlee 13:00 to 14:30 on 25 June Committee Room 2, County Hall, Durham 18:00 to 19:30 on 26 June Individuals who would like to help us improve our service can reserve a space by phoning and asking for Mark Farren or via If they need any assistance to help them participate, they should mention it when reserving their place and we will do everything we can to assist.

Community Capital Development Workshop Re-running in June A project that has helped North East groups and organisations raise 7.8million to buy, build and develop buildings, is offering another chance to attend one of its workshops. The Places for Everyone scheme is holding An Introduction to Capital Development workshop on Tuesday 19 June, 10am to 4.30pm at Design Works in Felling, Gateshead. The workshop is aimed at voluntary sector organisations that are considering, or in the process of, refurbishing or redeveloping a building, taking control of one from a local authority, or starting a complete new build. This is a special chance to take part in the project, which officially came to an end in March, but whose partners are keen to keep the momentum going due to the high number of success stories More details BREEZE CYCLING The Breeze network is British Cycling s exciting recreation programme to get more women riding a bike. It is about fun, friendly and social bike rides in a local area led by women for women. Funded by Sport England, Breeze relies on a hugely important group of volunteer champions to make the programme happen. Without their amazing energy, enthusiasm and commitment to get women bike riding, we simply wouldn't be able to offer these exciting experiences. We are looking for a number of Breeze champions across England. There is no need to be a cycling expert - just be confident on a bike and keen to help others. We're looking for enthusiastic people to get involved in the Breeze network and inspire women to get more out of their bike, have fun with friends and get a recognised qualification at the same time. To become a Breeze champion: You'll take part in a fun one day ride leadership course where you'll have a chance to meet other Breeze champions. The certificate qualifies you to independently plan, deliver and promote rides to groups of women. In addition to free training, we will provide you with a Breeze kit, British Cycling Ride membership and plenty of support along the way. Furthermore, to ensure you're able to deliver safe bike rides, British Cycling will support you to gain a first aid qualification. In return we ask champions to deliver on average 12 rides over the year to local women in their area.

5 The following free, one day courses (8.45am 5.30pm) are taking place: North East Saturday 30 June South Durham If you are interested or know someone who wants to find out more, then please visit or get in touch via GOVERNMENT ALCOHOL STRATEGY In the government's alcohol strategy published at the end of March this year there was the introduction of a minimum unit price for alcohol. You may have already seen in the press significant media attention in Scotland and that is likely to be replicated in England in the foreseeable future. Press attention has been given to the warnings from the alcohol industry creating public concern about the cost of alcohol and how that will impact on lifestyles as well as the legal aspects. Little attention has been given to the actual facts, research and the evidence base for a minimum unit price. At this point we are expecting a consultation on the pricing level in the autumn and would hope that partnerships, teams and individuals will respond to the consultation. Scotland as you may already know is looking at 50p per unit Please find attached a discussion paper from Balance, the North East Alcohol.
