Health Recovery Advisory Resilience Information

Come and meet HARRI near you!
HARRI is a health and wellbeing engagement vehicle, with it advisers are able to travel around Lancashire to talk with the local communities and individuals.
On board:
· They engage with you; to share their ideas and plans for the future and to gain insight into what your needs are.
· They offer simple signposting, advice and guidance to offer the right help at the right time in the right place for you.
On board there will be a mixed group from within the NHS and beyond, which will enable them to offer you a wide range of information on many of the issues you may be facing, such as debt, quit smoking, diabetic DESMOND, Steady On, sleep difficulties, and much more. The vehicle includes a private consulting area with disabled access.
People can visit HARRI at various locations and events throughout the year in Lancashire. It will be at Morecambe Carnival on Saturday 10th August from 10.00am until 6.00pm.

Drivers Beware!

Illegal and irresponsible parking.
 Over recent weeks, the number of people parking outside school seems to be on the increase.  The school receives regular complaints from other road users, local residents and parents of children about this and so now the school have taken the decision that any car parked on the yellow zig-zag area will be photographed and the enforcement authorities informed.  This is a criminal offence so please please think before you park!

Gardeners Cold Calling

Reports have been received of a van going door to door in the Lytham St Annes area offering gardening work or asking if any odd jobs need doing. Unfortunately a resident in Lytham took them up on their offer, after minimal work was completed the consumer was driven to the bank (in the van) and asked to pay over a very large sum of money.

Other reports in the same area indicate gardeners advertising via a flyer, again minimal work done for a large amount of cash. Be wary of using flyers.

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
