A new project and life in the Kabin

Power to the community!
 A new project called Empowering Communities will give local
people the power and know-how to get projects up and running
to improve the quality of life for everyone in the area.
    This is great news for anyone in the Transform area who has
an idea for a project, or who is part of a community organisation
struggling for funds. Empowering Communities gives local
people access to a diverse regeneration team who will provide
the expertise to help them to make things happen: a Community
Enterprise Worker; a Financial Inclusion Worker and a Community
Development Worker.
    Their support will be underpinned by a new Community
Grant Scheme, which will provide ‘seedcorn’ grants to community
groups so that they can attract match funding to get their
projects off the ground. The new grant will be launched in April
2006. The project also incorporates Transform’s Neighbourhood
Wardens, who will help to identify issues and encourage people
to take advantage of the expertise and funding available.
    The project brings £500,000 of new funding into the area,
with contributions from Objective 2 ERDF, Devon Renaissance,
Transform and North Devon Homes. The bid was written by the
North Devon and Exmoor Regeneration Company, who will also
manage the project, with support from Gary Smith.                 The new Empowering Communities team:

Speeding: a solution?

Life in Bratton Fleming: part two
    Following his last article in Neighbourhood News, Alfred Cotten visited the Highways Department at the
    Civic Centre in Barnstaple, to find out more about traffic calming in Bratton Fleming. We learned that the
    village led the way with a traffic calming campaign a few years ago and that the Parish Council has already
    done a great deal to slow traffic through the village. Changing local drivers’ attitudes to speed is the most
    effective method of traffic calming as it is local drivers who speed the most through our villages. Is it time
    to renew the traffic calming campaign? If so, Transform and the Highways Department are keen to support
    you. Contact Ray Bawden on 01598 710686 or Gary Smith at Transform if you think this is a good idea.

Bratton Fleming and are looking forward to hearing         of the senior citizens, which was a massive success,
the views of the young people.                             enjoyed by all involved.

Once again we have been busy on patrol in the area.
One of the biggest issues raised by the public is about
the young people, so we have been making contact
with a lot of the different groups of young people,
from the youth club to groups of youngsters hanging
around on the street corner. We’ve been finding out
what their issues are and what they would like to see
in the area and what they’d like to do in the village.
Again I think that the youth film will be great as it
will highlight the topics and issues from the young
people’s point of view.
    We also went to the community lunch which was
really beneficial as we met a lot of people who do
voluntary work in the village.

The hoodies are coming - hurray!                                                                   Neighbourhood
The 16 Peer Mentors and 16 Peer Supporters at Ilfracombe College have just received
their new ‘Teamworx’ hoodies. The new tops will make them easy to spot in and around
school and is just one of the methods being used by the college to raise the profile of its
successful Support Scheme within the college.
    The Peer Mentors’ role is to befriend students in years 7, 8 and 9; listen to their troubles
in a non-judgemental way and signpost them towards further help if it is needed. The
team of students are on duty during lunch and break, assist in lessons and are often
assigned a particular year 7 student to give them extra support.
    “I think the younger kids feel more able to talk to us than to an adult,” said Emily Beer,
one of the Peer Mentors. “Some of us had problems at school when we were younger so
we understand how they feel.” Rob Barnard, the Peer Mentor/Support Coordinator who                 Rory McDonald
runs the scheme said, “The key is for the Mentors to build good relationships with people          Deputy
and keep them going throughout the year. The mentors and supporters take time to                   Neighbourhood
listen, become their friend and provide a source of support and encouragement.”
    The Mentors have a
positive effect on student
behaviour. Ceri Whatley,
a Mentor in Year 13 said,
“The scheme gets kids of
different ages interacting
with one another. Our
role is not to tell students
off, but to talk, listen and
encourage them to work                                                                             Janine Whapham
