The Herbert Protocol and the Lions ‘message in a bottle.’ - A new campaign is being launched across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to encourage people to keep vital personal and medical information in a bottle in their fridge.
The Lions Club in Oadby and Wigston has paid for 6000 bottles which will be given free of charge to members of the public. The project combines two existing schemes – The Herbert Protocol and the Lions ‘message in a bottle.’ The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which encourages family, friends and carers to put together useful information which can then be used if a person with dementia goes missing. It contains vital information such as medication required, mobile numbers, a recent photograph, an up to date description and places and friends they frequently visit.
The Lions ‘Message in a Bottle’ scheme is a simple idea to encourage everyone to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form in a common location – the fridge. This scheme includes people with serious medical conditions such as life threatening allergies and not just the elderly.
Each bottle comes with two stickers which should be stuck on the inside of the front door and on the fridge door which should alert you to the fact that there is a bottle in the fridge with information in it.
Finding that information will save a lot of time and give you quick useful information about the person if they have gone missing or something has happened – in fact it could help you save a life.

Oakham & Barleythorpe - Concerns have been raised by local residents about vehicles parking and blocking paths which have in some circumstances forced pedestrians to walk into the road to circumnavigate the vehicle. This is putting the pedestrian in unnecessary danger. Local police will be checking the areas that are highlighted to us and issuing appropriate tickets if required. We'd rather not issue the tickets and would ask that people park their cars in a responsible way.
