Thousands of calls made to new 101 police non-emergency number

Published: 7 December 2011

More than 15,000 calls have been made to the new non-emergency number for South Yorkshire Police since its introduction one month ago.

Introduced on 4 November, 101 is the new easy to remember number to contact South Yorkshire Police for all non-emergency incidents and general enquiries when it is less urgent than 999. Since 4 November, the Force has received 15,406 calls via the 101 number. During the same period, 16,700 999 calls were received.

Superintendent Adrian Moran, Head of Communications said: It is pleasing to see that South Yorkshire residents are using the new 101 number to contact South Yorkshire Police for non-emergency issues. However, what is more important is that during the last month we have seen a reduction in calls to both 999 and our previous non-emergency number, compared to 2010.

It is important that our communities know how to contact us and the most appropriate way to contact us to resolve their issue. Calls to the 101 number are answered by specially trained staff here in South Yorkshire - residents will not find themselves speaking to someone in another part of the country.

101 provides the public with an easy to remember number, in addition, every call will cost a flat rate of 15 pence regardless of whether you are calling from a landline or a mobile phone or how long the call lasts.

Between 4 November and 4 December, 26,815 calls were received on the previous non-emergency number, which is being gradually phased out.

The 101 number should be used for calls that are less urgent than 999. You should only call 999 in an emergency, for example, when a crime is in progress or life is in danger. For all other matters, you should use the non-emergency number, 101.

101 - A new non-emergency number for South Yorkshire Police

Published: 14 November 2011

101 - The police non-emergency number

On 4 November 2011, South Yorkshire Police's non-emergency number changed to 101, replacing the existing 0114 2202020 number which will be gradually phased out. Every call to 101 will be charged at a 15 pence flat rate.

In an emergency - when a crime is in progress or life is at risk - always call 999.

When should you call 101?

To report less urgent crime or disorder and for general police enquiries. For example:

  • if your car has been stolen;
  • if your property has been damaged;
  • when you suspect drug use or dealing;
  • to report a minor traffic collision; or
  • to give the police information about crime in your area.

For more information, including answers to frequently asked questions visit www.southyorkshire.police.uk/101

Please make a note of this number 101.

RMBC updates the Rotherham Local Development Framework: Draft Core Strategy

Published: 26 August 2011

Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) has updated the Rotherham Local Development Framework: Draft Core Strategy and invites comments.

Copies are available at Local Public Libraries and on the RMBC websites:

  • www.rotherham.gov.uk/forwardplanning
  • www.rotherham.gov.uk/downloads/file/5305/kiveton_park_and_wales_leaflet
  • https://www.rotherham.gov.uk/info/856/local_development_framework/1992/conservation_areas_in_rotherham

Todwick Parish Council has written a letter to RMBC responding to these proposals

A57 Todwick Residents Group Petition against RMBC proposal to eliminate the right turn facility from the A57 into Goosecarr Lane

Published: 18 August 2011

Todwick Parish Council invites you to support the A57 Todwick Residents' Group by signing petition against Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) proposal to eliminate the right turn facility from the A57 into Goosecarr Lane. Records show that this facility has been in existence since 1851 for many generations of Todwick people and also neighbouring residents using this route.

If this facility is removed then the following would take place:

  1. An additional 2000 vehicles per day would have to pass the entrance to the village school and early years' crèche, many of these in school hours.
  2. Residents of Goosecarr Lane would have to travel an additional (estimated) 23,500 miles per year collectively to reach their homes.
  3. Many other village residents would have to drive additional distances to do likewise.

This vast increase would involve a great deal of cost, inconvenience, time and CO2 emissions. We believe that the proposal is totally unnecessary when alternatives are available and could be incorporated into existing plans quite easily. Plans involving filters lanes and traffic light control have been drawn up and would control the junction well.

After 8 years of campaigning - we have been granted a Public Inquiry and the Government Inspector will then make a final decision on this and other matters.

The Public Inquiry is at 10 am, Tuesday, 4 October 2011 at the Matrix, Dinnington Business Centre, Nobel Way, Dinnington, Sheffield S35 3QB. Car parking is available.

A total of five group members will be speaking at the public inquiry on your behalf in addition to other interested parties.

We are looking for a 1,000 signature petition to present to the Inspector and his team.

Your signature is important!

Add your name to the list!

The Petition is available for you to sign at the Todwick Village Hall every Tuesday between 10 am - 12 noon from 16 August to Tuesday, 6 September 2011 inclusive.

Anyone who cannot attend the Village Hall to sign please contact Jack or Jean on 01909 772822 or 07966 288185 when alterative arrangements will be made.

Remember that Todwick residents are not asking for something new - merely to retain a facility which has been afforded to Todwick people for 160 years.

Published: 3 August 2011

The weather was perfect and a good number of people attended the Todwick Art, Gardens, Allotments, Historical Trail, 'Miniature Garden in a Tray' Competition and Scarecrow Competition event on Sunday, 31 July 2011. We had visitors from as far as Wakefield, Huddersfield and Brighouse. See note at the end of this news item.

Display of art including some wonderful pieces from the children of Todwick Junior and Infant School in the Village Hall were very much appreciated. These were arranged by Pam and Jack Marples. Local artists were Abigail Mosley, age 13, who brought a portfolio of her work; Jack Marples showed a range of his lovely work from paintings to pencil drawings; and Valerie Dillon showed a very interesting range of subjects in her paintings. Jo Boyes' photographic work and craft work was beautifully presented.

The Ramblers Club display included details of many walks in the area. The Ramblers also tested people's local knowledge and awareness with the Rotherham Villages Picture Quiz; the 1st Prize was won by Robert Baverstock and 2nd Prize by Mary Pavey. Many Thanks to Jim Tompkin and Tony Rusling for their efforts in setting up and promoting the stand all afternoon.

Hall 2 held the Naked Art Exhibition (i.e. unframed works of art). It was filled with 86 pictures painted by Joyce Spurr, a ninety-year-old Sheffield artist, who has spent a lifetime drawing and painting. This selection of Joyce's work on display was for sale - all proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Society. The Sheffield Telegraph on 7 July 2011 featured an interview with Joyce about her art work. If anyone is interested in seeing some of Joyce's painting please contact Sheila Pantry, Tel: 01909 771024, Email: sp@sheilapantry.com

Todwick Funday - Sunday, 12 June 2011

Published: 14 June 2011

Sunshine for the preparations in the morning and then the rain came and came again in the afternoon but it did not dampen the spirits of all those who attended. At one point there must have been upwards of 200 people and children attending. The Junior football players, their coaches and managers did a stalwart job. Some of the young players were only playing their second match ever!

Judging by the laughs and applause everyone enjoyed the various entertainments - Kimmo the magician showed all sorts of tricks and entertained for a good hour, Mr Balloon made some fantastic Balloon models and Ashley entertained with a mini disco, Linda the face painter was busy all afternoon brightening up faces in non-running paints! The various stands - Crafts, WI, Save the Children Fund all were busy, and the Refreshment Stand was very well attended - cakes, tarts, buns and other goodies were much appreciated by those attending.

11-12 June was also the celebration weekend of the Royal British Legion as part of their 90th anniversary celebration fundraising. The total donated at the Fun Day was £45.20. If anyone wishes to send any contributions to this worthwhile charity that for Serving and Ex-Service Men and Women see www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved.

Football in Todwick

Published: 18 May 2011

Two years ago Todwick Junior football club merged with Kiveton Park Football Club. By merging, the new club is able to offer children the opportunity of playing non/competitive and competitive football from the age of 5 to adult. Over the last few years the junior division of the club has grown significantly. We now have teams representing the majority of the age groups in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Junior League, together with an academy that teaches the basic skills to children from the age of 5. The club has more than 220 members with over 140 of these in our junior section. All the coaches are Football Association (FA) Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checked and are trained or are being trained by the FA to follow the FA coaching standards.

The club uses a number of pitches with the junior section adopting the Todwick recreation ground for both matches and training. The junior season has now finished and will not start until September; however, unlike our Premiership heroes, we will not be sunning ourselves in Barbados. We will continue to train throughout the summer predominantly on Saturdays trying out new tactics in preparation for the coming season.

New children are always welcome to join our training sessions especially the younger children who can join the academy. If your child is interested in football please either come along on a Saturday morning and speak to one of the coaches (preferably between 9.00 and 9.30 am) or contact Paul on 07770 581495.
