The School Garden

The school garden is in need of a little 'TLC'. The School has been given a supply of old scaffold boards that they intend to use to edge the raised beds. However, they need some skilled assistance; is there a person(s) out there who could come into school, cut them to size and then secure them to the beds?  There are 6 or so raised beds to fix. If you are able to help (and probably have your own tools), please contact Mrs Peck via the school office. Thank you.

The great BLS Sewing Bee - not really!!!

Are you skilled with a needle and thread?  A dab hand with a Quick Unpick?  A sewing machine marvel?
If the answer is 'yes', then Bolton-le-Sands Primary School would love to hear from you.
They have a number of tracksuit tops that have damaged zips and they would be eternally grateful if friends from the school community would volunteer to take out the old zips. If people are wiiling and able to replace the zips with new ones, that'd be fantastic!
If you, or someone you know, can help; please contact the school office and leave a message for Mrs Squires on 01524 823606.  Thank you.

HMRC scam phone call

Householders are reporting receiving telephone calls from a 0161 claiming to be from Working Pensions. The recipients are asked to press 1, when they do this the message asks for all of the consumer's details, National Insurance number, full name and date of birth. The 0161 number has previously been associated with HMRC scams.  Residents are warned that HMRC do not make cold calls requesting personal details and these calls are scams.

Beware flyers for property repairs

Be cautious about responding to flyers, use local, known traders, get a range of quotes. A Lancashire resident recently contacted a trader via a flyer, was visited, and on advice from the trader as to what needed doing, agreed a price of £1500 for what turned out to be a very minor repair. The trader refused a cheque, insisted on cash, and became aggressive, threatening to pour tar over the driveway.
Trading Standards advice is to always say no to cold callers. The Safetrader scheme can help you find a trader in your area, contact 0303 333 1111 or go to www.safetrader.org.uk
