Have your say on the future of joint governance of the Fire and Rescue service in Cambridgeshire More than 2,000 responses have been received on the consultation on possible future options for the Governance of the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service. Thank you if you are one of them. If you have not fed back your views then there is still time. New legislation means that Police and Crime Commissioners can take on greater responsibilities for fire and rescue services in their area where a good case is made to do so.   Four options are being considered and a report has been independently produced (by PA Consulting) setting out the four options, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of each option.   The no change option:  Police and fire continue to have governance arrangements that are independent of each other  The representation option: The Police and Crime Commissioner has a seat and voting rights on the Fire Authority becoming the 18th member of the Fire Authority    The governance option: The Fire Authority is replaced by the Police and Crime Commissioner who becomes the “Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner"; The single employer option: There is a single Chief Officer for police and fire personnel who becomes the single employer under the Police and Crime Commissioner.  The business case recommends option 3 – the governance option We would like to know what you think. How to tell us your views A two page summary, the full report and online survey (that takes 30 seconds to complete) can be found at www.cambridgeshire-pcc.gov.uk/fire   If you would like to provide a written response or have any queries, please send them directly to cambs-pcc@cambs.pnn.police.uk     If you would prefer to complete the survey over the phone or require further assistance please phone 0300 333 3456   The consultation closes on 4th September 2017.

CAMBRIDGESHIRE Constabulary is on the hunt for more speedwatch volunteers. Community Speedwatch allows members of the public to get actively involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through their neighbourhoods. It is used in areas where residents have identified speeding as a priority and aims to educate motorists about the dangers of speeding rather than enforcing as a first option. Last year the Constabulary's speedwatch volunteers checked more than 150,000 vehicles and sent out 13,000 letters to speeding drivers asking them to consider their attitude to speeding through villages. Community Speed Watch (CSW) is a scheme to help people reduce traffic speeding through their neighbourhood. Excessive speed through neighbourhoods is one of the most common issues raised by residents and has an impact not only on road safety but on the quality of life for those that endure it. The scheme enables volunteers to work within their community to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally. Community Speed Watch can be set up in any ward, village or parish governed by a 20, 30 or 40 miles per hour speed limit. If you wish to get involved or simply wish to know more then please reply to this message. Thank you, PCSO Gary May

In previous years anglers have been catching and reporting the odd Pacific pink salmon but this year they have appeared in large numbers as evidenced in the attached paper. Our colleagues in Norway & Denmark are also finding large numbers in their rivers and coasts, Norway has now designated their presence as a ‘High Risk’ mainly as a precaution as we do not know what the impacts would be on native Atlantic salmon if any. Previously the UK government designated the threat as ‘Low Risk’ but this is presently being re-assessed given the high numbers this year. We would urge all anglers to follow the advice in the Environment Agency’s briefing note if you capture a pink salmon:   If you are confident that you have caught a pink salmon it should be dispatched and retained. Please do NOT return it to the river.    If you are unsure about the identification, if possible please call the Environment Agency on their hotline number 0800 807060. If possible retain the fish alive in a keep net. Otherwise you should release it. Please report your capture, including details of where you caught it and, if possible, a photograph of the fish to Jon Shelley at the Environment Agency by email: jonathan.shelley@environment-agency.gov.uk<mailto:jonathan.shelley@environment-agency.gov.uk> or by post: Brampton Fisheries laboratory, Brampton, Peterborough, Bromholme Lane, PE28 4NE If possible, make the whole fish available to the Environment Agency for inspection and further analysis. Otherwise a sample of the scales would be very helpful.
