The Nook ​has literally transformed children’s palliative care in Norfolk and North Suffolk with the construction of a fabulous, purpose-built hospice in the heart of Norfolk, The Nook is a modern building nestled in the heart of rural Framingham Pigot providing much needed care. The facilities replaced the existing Quidenham Hospice and has been designed to support families in Norfolk and North Suffolk with the very best services in an accessible purpose-built environment. East Anglian Children’s HospiceWe rely heavily on voluntary donations to support the services we are able to offer to families, children and young people with life-threatening conditions. Support is provided free of charge and EACH rely on voluntary donations for the majority of their income and need to raise over £6 million from fundraising and £5 million in income from our shops each year. Continued improvements in care means children and young people are living longer and with more complex medical conditions. There are currently more than 2,000 children and young people in the area living with a life-threatening condition, who may require an aspect of the service EACH deliver. This figure is growing rapidly. Public Health studies report this could be as high as 6,000 by 2025. Awareness and understanding of our services are also growing, meaning a higher proportion of that increasing figure will inevitably be seeking care and support. Careers may have to be put on hold, healthy brothers and sisters can feel left out and regular family activities and holidays can be rare. During all of this, families are going through a process of grieving. EACH care and support is tailored for the needs of all family members and delivered where the families wish – in their own home, at hospital, in the community or at one of three hospices in Ipswich, Milton and Norfolk. They currently care for 365 children and young people and 463 family members receiving face-to-face support. The family centred approach includes specialist nursing care, symptom management nursing, short breaks, wellbeing activities, therapies, counselling and volunteer services in the family home; all meeting the individual needs of the child, young person and whole family.

Norwich Drone Photography – Choosing the right operator

Flying drones is tremendously fun for people of all ages but there are some big differences between recreational flying and operating as a Licensed Pilot. The combination of fun and endless possibilities for videographers can lead to some inexperienced pilots getting in over their heads. As more inexperienced pilots take on jobs, the chance of accidents occurring increases leaving both the PILOT and CLIENT legally LIABLE for possible damages. Any drone pilot receiving payment for aerial work is legally required to have CAA / IAA permission and valid commercial insurance. Choosing a registered pilot, you can rest assured that you are employing the services of an approved drone pilot who operates in accordance with UK/ ROI drone laws. We’ve been shooting Norwich Drone Photography for many years. In fact, we were among the first 3118 people in the UK to obtain a Permission for Commercial Operation back in the days where Norwich Drone Photography was quite rare. Drones have revolutionised the way we do business but to maximise your investment and any money spent on done footage or photography  as a client there are always a number of things to check before employing a drone pilot.

License – Always ask to see a valid Permission for Commercial Operation or Licensed to cover the type of drone being flown. You can check that your Pilot is Licensed here on the Civil Aviation Authority Website. You’ll find us under Lee Blanchflower Trading as Blanc Creative.

Risk Assessment – Any professional pilot will limit risks on site by preparing a Pre Flight Risk Assessment. Request to see a copy of this document before any flights take place.

Insurance – Valid Insurance is a MUST HAVE before any flights take place. Flight insurance can be obtained as an annual policy or can be purchased immediately prior to flight so there is no excuse to allow your pilot to fly without insurance.

If you think we could help your business with our range of Drone Photography and Drone Filming, then why not contact our team today. We’ll talk you through every step of your project from concept to delivery. You can speak with the Blanc Team on Mob: 07871 364041 or email: studio@blanc-creative.com
