Bird Totem Red Bank Shore

Visit Morecambe Bay’s newest arrival at Red Bank shore.  It is a bird totem designed by Ulverston-based artist and metalworker Chris Bramall of CB Arts.  Morecambe Bay is one of the top three places in the UK for wintering birds. It’s vast shining sands are a rich larder for wading birds like lapwing, knot and curlew. Hundreds of thousands of birds use Morecambe Bay.  There are seven panels altogether dotted around the bay and Morecambe Bay Partnership has produced a leaflet which has already proved popular. If you would like to join them as a volunteer to look after the birds of the Bay, please contact Morecambe Bay Partnership on 01539 734888 info@morecambebay.org.uk for details.

Beware Roofers False Claims

Incidents have been reported in Burnley, Colne and Morecambe where roofers have mislead consumers into having work carried out. In one case the householder was cold called by roofers and told they had been doing work at a neighbours and had noticed a tiling problem that could cause the roof to leak. The roofers promised a 25 year guarantee, the alleged work took one hour to complete and cost £1400. In another incident a gentleman with dementia was told work needed doing to his roof, which was not the case, and was taken to the bank for payment.
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
