Heads up. I just seen someone snooping in my front garden in cotton. When I opened the window to shout at them they asked if I had any scrap. I said no. Number plate is LS04 WBX battered white transit...
A few words of caution - Bacton Football Club was broken into on Sunday night, damage was caused but nothing much was stolen. The cheeky sods managed to trip the fuses which turned the outside lights ...
As you probably know Cotton Church has had the builders in again recently to fix some plaster work high up in the nave. The scaffolding is about to be removed leaving quite a big sweeping-up job.
Over 20 helpers came and did some litter picking this morning. Good result in clearing up the verges and ditches in decent weather for once.
Hope everybody is fit and ready for the Litter Pick tomorrow starting at 10.00am outside the Village Hall. All welcome, just come dressed for the weather.
Help to keep warm this winter
Winter weather can create serious financial and physical challenges, especially for the elderly, disabled people and families with young children struggling to keep warm in their homes. Last year, there were more than 350 excess winter deaths in Suffolk, believed to be connected with the cold weather.
Free help and advice is at hand.
Suffolk's Warm Homes Healthy People scheme offers support to those most in need.
The scheme can help home owners or tenants who privately rent and are on a low income or in receipt of a means tested benefit. The scheme also takes into account age, disability and cold related health conditions.
If you're struggling to keep warm or are worried about the cost of heating your home, you could get help with:
· Emergency boiler and heating repair costs
· Winter fuel payments
· Free home energy survey with advice on insulation, fuel switching and cheaper oil prices
· Basic draught proofing
· Temporary loan of heaters
People with vulnerable relatives or neighbours are also urged to help them find out more about the support available.
Eligibility criteria apply. For more information, call Warm Homes Healthy People helpline on 08456 037 686 (Local rate, lines open Monday-Friday, 9 - 5pm).
