101 - the number to remember

 Humberside – 101: The easy to remember police number

The Home Office has launched a UK-wide campaign to highlight 101 – the number to call to contact local police in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland when it’s not an emergency.

You may have concerns you want to report to the police but it’s not always appropriate to call 999, and that’s why the Home Office is reminding the public they should dial 101 when they want to get through to the police.

Humberside Police launch Christmas advent calender

Don’t have a nightmare before Christmas – Launch of Operation Yuletide

The countdown to Christmas is underway and we at Humberside Police want to make sure it’s a memorable one for all the right reasons.

Humberside Police’s gift to you this Christmas is a raft of useful hints, tip and information designed to help keep you, your homes and your property safe.

Today, the start of the advent period, our virtual advent calendar is being launched. To access the Yuletide calendar click here www.billysadventcalendar.co.uk

Behind each window of the calendar you will find useful messages, images and videos that are aimed at helping to keep you safe and sound throughout the holiday season.

Working with our partners in the four local authorities around the force area as well as Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, the NHS, Victim Support, Crimestoppers and a number of other organisations we hope that the messages we send out help everyone living in the communities we serve to enjoy Christmas.

Alongside the calendar, a range of policing initiatives and activity will be taking place across the force area tackling crimes including burglary, shop theft, domestic violence, responsible drinking, vehicle crime, drink driving and more.

Humberside Police will be talking about our campaigns and operations on Twitter and Facebook so follow them @Humberbeat and look out for the hashtag #xmascrime, like Humberside Police page www.facebook.com/humberbeat

YMCA Humber's Gary Storr has been nominated for a national Youth Matters Awards

A YOUNG worker from YMCA Humber has been short-listed for a national award and he needs YOUR help to get him to the lavish final awards ceremony, which will be held in London on Tuesday 2nd December.

Gary Storr, Community Support Coordinator for YMCA Humber,has been nominated for Young Worker of the Year at the charity's national Youth Matters Awards for his work at the Foyer and Community Housing projects in Grimsby.

The 28-year-old has worked at YMCA Humber for seven years and is a popular and talented member of the charity's housing team. Gary was nominated for the award by his colleague Charlie Kurz, who also works at the Foyer. She said: "Not only has he helped the vast majority of Foyer clients apply for university and student finance, he has also arranged transport for them to get there and often worked late to take them himself. On one occasion he worked a double shift to take a client to university in Edinburgh.

"Gary goes out of his way to help clients and support them into independent living and yet, he also does the less glamorous, essential jobs such as cleaning the toilets, emptying the recycling, cleaning the store room, monitoring supplies, sorting the staff office and maintaining the Foyer garden.

"Gary always goes above and beyond the call of duty; from personally raising money to buy new computers, van and gym passes for clients, through to helping clients and staff save money when buying things they need. Gary is a well liked, funny and a respected team member." Representatives on the Youth Matters Awards panel praised

Gary for 'helping clients and fellow staff members achieve their very best'. YMCA Humber are hoping for success in the awards for the of the Year award at last year's ceremony in Westminster.
