HS2 Stakeholder Briefing: Autumn 2018 Community Survey

HS2 would like to make the public aware of a community survey which we will be running along the route of the proposed new railway. Starting this week, 15 October 2018, this will be in the form of a telephone survey carried out by Ipsos MORI on behalf of HS2.

It follows a successful pilot of the survey over the summer, also run by Ipsos MORI, which allowed hs2 to test the methodology. This community survey will be an important part of there work to measure the delivery against the commitments in the HS2 Community Engagement Strategy. The questions in the survey are designed to focus on how well respondents perceive HS2 is fulfilling its ten community commitments and wider strategic aim of being a good neighbour. More »

Please find attached a short briefing with details of the survey.

The mobile libraries have a lift for wheelchair users and people with mobility problems.

The library service would like to ask you to display the attached mobile timetable for 8 October to 4 January for the Northern Routes and 22 October to 18 January for the Southern Routes within your Parish buildings and at other local community venues, if possible, to promote and encourage use of the service. Updated timetables will continue to be emailed to you every three months as they are produced. The Southern and Northern Mobile Library dates start at different dates because the Southern Mobile Library was off the road for 2 weeks in the previous update. As you will see the Mobiles will be off the road through Christmas week and then the dates start again on Wednesday 2 January 2019. The Tuesday 1 January 2019 service will not receive a visit until Tuesday 29 January 2019 to take into account New Year's day bank holiday. This will affect the following communities -


Belper Whitemoor


Denby Bottles

Denby Village


Langley Mill



North Wingfield


New Houghton

An online test can help reveal your true heart age

We're supporting a national campaign aimed at getting people heart health aware. More »

Adults aged between 40 and 60 are being encouraged to get to know their heart age by taking part in a free online Heart Age Test.

The short test, developed by Public Health England, helps you determine if your heart is at a higher age than your actual age.

It does this by asking a variety of physical and lifestyle related questions, as well as taking blood pressure and cholesterol information.

Having a heart age that is older than your actual age means you are at a higher risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Taking part in this short test means you can quickly identify if you might be at risk of developing a preventable heart condition.

To find out your heart age, search 'Heart Age' or visit www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-health-check/check-your-heart-age-tool

Live Life Better Derbyshire staff will be taking part in a range of information events around the county in September. They will help you fill in the online test and offer a variety of health and wellbeing advice too.

You can find details of where the events are taking place here » Less
