Community Payback

Details of the work of the Community Payback Team in Hampsthwaite

Hampsthwaite Parish Council was approached in December 2016 to seek our support for the Community Payback scheme. The Unpaid Work Requirement (commonly known as Community Payback) is one of the requirements that can be included in a community order. It involves service users doing compulsory work for the benefit of the community.

Work Undertaken for Hampsthwaite Parish Council

Following a request from Joe Murphy, [Unpaid Work Placement Coordinator, Interserve (Justice) of The Humberside, Lincolnshire & North Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company Ltd.], via the Harrogate Probation Office, Hampsthwaite P.C. agreed at their January Mtg to engage with the scheme.

The Memorial Hall Management Committee agreed that the Hall can be used as a base location for work in the village generally. Monday was chosen as the working day because the Hall is unoccupied at this time.

Groups arrive 9.30am Monday and work until 3.00pm. Group size has varied between 8 and 2 and is most regularly 4 to 6

To date, there have been 3 beneficiaries of the scheme: Memorial Hall, Parish Council (village in general), St Thomas a’Becket church. Cost of materials required and refreshments provided are apportioned in accordance with the distribution of work done.

Future Work Plans:
  • Painting bollards
  • Tidying edges around Green
  • Repairing, varnishing and painting, as required, seats and benches
  • 'Spring Clean' inside the church
  • Clearing Church yard edges and around graves
  • Re-setting grave stones
  • Re-polishing Church Room floor
  • Clearing Medieval Way - inc. repairs to dry stone walls
  • Repairing Feast Bridge
  • Clearing edges of Feast Field
  • Clearing Himalayan Balsam (in June)
There are also some minor tasks and repeat tasks (e.g. floor polishing). Most tasks are scheduled on a week by week basis and some are weather dependent. We are making requests for additional work and especially interior work (e.g. both churches, Memorial Hall, Village Room, Feast Cabins, Cricket Club).

Volunteers Needed

Our experience is that the Payback teams are well supervised, good humoured and excellent to work with - and the more we can work with them: the better the outcomes for the village.

So don’t hesitate to come and say hello when you see them working. Perhaps make them a cup of tea!

For all tasks, we appeal for volunteers (simply to drop in, guide, encourage and show appreciation mainly). All work needs provisionally to be planned and resourced in advance such that it is a available as a 'job ready to go'  whenever weather, group size and/or skills availability bring it to the fore. There are no labour costs but materials cost, including refreshments, need to be covered by the beneficiary. They are not allowed to do work on private amenities nor to do work which would normally be paid for.
