The children at the primary school were told of the terrible living conditions of some children in Romania. To brighten up their Christmas, children are being asked to fill a shoebox with lots of little items that would make a difference to a child's life: teddies, hats, gloves, pens, tennis balls, small toys but no liquids as these can leak and spoil the shoeboxes. All shoeboxes are to be brought to the school office for collection.

Green Deal grants for affordable warmth measures may be available to residents in their homes, depending on eligibility criteria. Trading Standards have recently received enquiries from the Hyndburn, Burnley and Fylde areas of Lancashire about the legitimacy of such free offers.
Never feel rushed into agreeing to have work done. Do your research, ensure you have the name and address details of the trader, where possible check the business online, check reviews on line, and make sure the trader does have an association with any logos and claims made in their advertising. Make sure the product they are offering is right for you and your property. Sometimes services can be free, sometimes you may need to contribute – make sure you are aware of any additional costs and that the price is made clear at the start.
The Green Deal ORB is responsible for maintaining a register of all authorised Green Deal Providers, Certification Bodies, Assessors and Installers, www.gdorb.decc.gov.uk.

If you receive a text from Tesco saying that you have won an iphone, beware, it is a scam, do not click on the link. A supermarket will never randomly contact you for information in exchange for a prize. Never click on any links and never give your personal details.
