Have your say - Cultural Framework consultation

We are developing a Cultural Framework for the district and are looking to get the views, thoughts and ideas of as many people, organisations and companies as possible across the district and beyond.

What do we mean by culture and why is a Cultural Framework relevant to you?

The term ‘culture’ means different things to different people, but culture is relevant to everyone as we all experience it in our own way. This could include museums, libraries, theatres, cinemas, galleries, carnivals, choirs, storytelling, podcasts, filmmaking, animation, writing, poetry, festivals, performances, concerts, sports, food, leisure, heritage or crafts to name a few.  It could be about going to events, enjoying walks in the countryside, learning new skills, finding out more about the history of the area, spending time with others and having fun.

This Cultural Framework will help to identify the cultural activity already happening in the Selby district area, what the people of the district want to see in the future and how culture can be used to make the district an even better place to live, work and visit. Whether you’re an artist, organise events, manage a venue or enjoy cultural activities, this is your chance to help shape the framework and what happens in Selby district in the future.

Beam, an arts and cultural organisation based in Yorkshire, has been commissioned by Selby District Council to develop the Framework. They have been working for a number of months researching the district and understanding what is special and important about the area. They’d now like to hear everyone’s views. Please say as much or as little as you like in response, what is important is finding out how you feel about culture in the Selby district.

To join the discussion:

For more information and to contribute your thoughts please view the online discussion document.

If you don’t have time to respond to the full document we still want to hear from you! You can let us know your one hope or idea for culture in Selby District here.

For any queries please email Beam contact@beam.uk.net

The deadline for comments is Friday 27 November at 5pm.

North Yorkshire Police - Mystery Shopper Recruitment Scams

Fraudsters are targeting job-seekers with a recruitment scam that has already claimed a number of victims with losses totalling over £51,000. 

The fraudsters use recruitment websites and apps to identify potential targets. The victim is then cold-called by someone claiming to be an employee of a mobile phone network. The caller explains to the victim that they will need to take part in a “mystery shopper” test in order to pass the recruitment process.

The victim is instructed to visit one of the mobile network’s high street stores and take out a phone contract using the victim’s own personal and financial details. They are assured that the contract will be cancelled after the recruitment process is completed.

Once the victim has successfully taken out the contract, they are directed to drop-off points to deliver the phone and SIM card to a ‘colleague’ of the caller. The victim is reassured that the contract will be terminated.

In reality, the victims will never hear from the suspects again, and are left liable for the mobile phone contract they were convinced to purchase. Some victims are also asked to move the “employer’s” money through their own bank accounts, putting them at risk of committing money laundering offences. Others find out that their personal details have been used to take out loans, for which they are also now liable.

 

What you need to do

  • Personal information such as your full address, DOB, or NI Number should not be included on your CV or public profiles on a recruitment sites.
  • To protect yourself against identity theft, always verify that the employer/recruiter you’re speaking with is who they say they are. Contact the employer via a telephone number or email address on their official website, or via the company’s verified social media accounts.
  • Never allow an employer to move their money through your personal bank account. Legitimate employers won’t ask you to do this.

Antisocial behaviour in Barlby

North Yorkshire Police

Last night we received a number of phone calls to NYP from residents in Barlby reporting Anti-social behaviour.

These reports made reference to youths throwing items at cars, gathering in groups and knocking on residents doors.

On every occasion a report was made, officers attended the area and some youths were encountered. The youths that were identified will be spoke to with their parents and words of advice given. They will be advised of the consequences if this behaviour continues.

Please can we advise residents to report any incidence of ASB to us on 101 providing a description and an exact location of where the youths are. This enables officers to locate the youths and identify those involved so that we can look at taking action and dealing with the ASB in Barlby.

If you need to contact North Yorkshire Police please call 101 or in an emergency dial 999. Alternatively please email any non urgent enquiries to: generalenquiries@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk
