In The Frame

In The Frame, Internet Eyes

After allying fears from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) and over-coming criticism from civil rights groups, local venture Internet Eyes is now set to go ahead following months of uncertainty.

The controversial project, which will provide members with access to security cameras in the town and rewards those who report anything suspicious with payouts of up to £1,000, was due to be piloted in Stratford last November, but the scheme was halted following claims that the company would be in breach of Data Protection regulations.

The ICO has now accepted the company’s registration and the scheme can get underway – however in order to comply with all the requirements a membership fee will have to be charged and users will need to verify their identity and age by providing additional information such as their passport number of driving licence number.

Many local shopkeepers have already signed up for the service, and for a weekly fee their cameras will be watched remotely by members in their own homes. If any criminal or suspicious activity is spotted, the member sends an alarm message. The member whose reports lead to the most criminal activity being discovered will receive a monetary award.

Many local businesses welcome the project, believing it will help to reduce crime and increase prosecutions. Internet Eyes website was designed by Stratford-based web design company Styles Creative.

Stratford Fringe festival

Stratford Fringe Festival

Stratford upon Avon Fringe 7th-12th June 2010

In this, its inaugural year, the Stratford Fringe is shaping up nicely, offering something to everyone - whether you enjoy opera, dance, music, theatre, comedy or visual arts.

It’s been a steep learning curve for all those involved in the preparations, but plans are already underway for next year, with hopes for an even bigger and better event. Consultations are being held with artists who regularly travel to Edinburgh, where – let’s face it – they really know how to put on a Fringe Festival.

Stratford has welcomed many artists to the town for this week’s event, from local heroes such as Nick Asbury, and author Jo Eames to artistes including Kitten Von Mew, photographer Bo Davies and the Tread the Boards Theatre Company.

If you have the chance, get yourselves down to The Embassy Club in Rother Street on Saturday night (12th June, 7.30pm start) for what promises to be a great evening’s entertainment sponsored by Stratford Community Radio, featuring Lewis Cohen Blues, Ian Brambles with the Brambles Band and Adrian Styles and Earl Grey.

With a growing culture of festival events in Stratford, the Fringe is a fantastic addition to the mix. From Shakespeare’s Birthday celebrations to the River Festival, the Food Festival and the Literary Festival we are never far away from a thoroughly good time!

Another success for the Stratforward Team! Well done.
