Door-to-door fish sellers

Trading Standards is still getting reports of door-to-door fish sellers pressuring residents into buying very large quantities of expensive fish. One householder paid £350 for a box of fish and another was charged £45 for a packet of fish. In both cases the fish did not look fresh and there were concerns it was not as described.  Consumers are advised to buy this type of product from local market traders, fishmongers and pre-arranged roundsmen, who have regular customers in the area and are easy to contact if things go wrong.

Rogue Traders -Roofing

There have been a number of bogus traders offering home repairs and maintenance this month, roofing seems to be a particular favourite.  Trading Standards advice is never do business with doorstep traders. If you need help finding a reputable trader for home improvements or property repairs why not try the Safe Trader Scheme. For more information visit or call Help Direct on 0303 333 1111.

The School has a fab new stage!

Everyone at school sends the FOBLES a really big thank you because a new modular stage has been delivered to school this week.  The stage covers 16 sq metres and can be used flexibly according to the school's needs. The stage is also equipped with steps, a valence and with safety railings that will prevent falls / accidents. The total cost of the stage was a little under £4000 and the school is indebted to the FOBLES for their generous support.

School News

The children have now broken up for the half-term holiday and will return to school on Monday 23 February.  Meanwhile two teams were sent to a Tag Rugby tournament that was held at Heysham High School this week. Both sides (BLS Blue and BLS Yellow) played really well and were a credit to the school.  In the end the BLS Blues (the 'Dragons') won the tournament and brought a super trophy back to school to add to their collection.  Well done the Blues!
