Bottesford NHW Alert: Travellers in the Area

Please be aware that a group of travellers has arrived in the area. We shouldn’t “tar everyone with the same brush” but experience would show that the arrival of such groups in an area is often accompanied by a raise in petty crime. Please be vigilant and take sensible precautions to protect property.

Bottesford NHW: Request for Assistance

Bottesford NHW is a Parish-wide NHW scheme which is built around 11 Area Co-ordinators each with responsibility for a small geographical area within the Parish. We currently have two Area Co-ordinator vacancies – one for Muston and one for Easthorpe. The role is not especially taxing or time consuming but is critical to the successful running of the scheme and as such can be very rewarding. If anyone feels they would like to actively support NHW by taking on one of these roles, please contact me for further details.

 

We are also seeking a few hours help from someone with multimedia skills who could help us refresh our map of the area showing the Area Co-ordinators’  boundaries so it can be published/circulated for community information. Once again please contact me directly if you are able to help.

Bottesford NHW Alert: More Info on Solar Panel Checks

Pl see below from another local resident:

“I too had a similar cold call yesterday re solar panel maintenance although the caller said he was from the Solar Advice Centre. I agreed to a visit to take place today and was told that I would get a phone call to say who would be calling. I found out from companies house that the Solar Advice Centre had ceased trading in 2012. This morning I got the promised phone call but this time the caller said they were from Green Planet. The background noise on the call was reminiscent of a call centre. I said I had changed my mind and put the phone down. After each call I dialled 1471 and was told that the caller had withheld their number.

It certainly seems to be somewhat suspicious.”

Please see the message below from one of our local residents:

 

“Just flagging a cold call we've had just now as I'm a bit dubious and others may be approached too.

 

I had a call from a firm in London who claim to offer a free system check on solar panels. We have some. He said they  have people in the area. I said yes initially. I tried to ring them back but number unobtainable. I then got a call from someone else to say then their local guy Mark could call and I arranged for him  to come 20 mins later. I looked them up online  before he arrived. New company one woman director no accounts.

 

When the guy arrived I made an excuse and put him off but asked few questions. Who pays for the service? Could I call them back for another appointment?. He showed me his folder with 08453402983 on it. I rang this  and got a woman at the company.

 

Apparently it is a free service, ( the original caller and guy at the door said the gov funded it!)that they used to market themselves in the hope of future business. She was interested to know how I got their number. 

 

The company is called the Green  planet advisory service. The guy smart, southern accent driving a BMW ml63aye”
