NETWORKS On 6th September a new national phone number “105” was launched by electricity network operators for customers to call should they need to report or get information about a power cut in their area. Key points to note about this service are: · Dialling 105 will put customers through to their local electricity network operator – the company that manages the cables, power lines and substations that deliver electricity into homes and businesses in their area. · 105 is just one of the ways that customers can contact their electricity network operator. They can also contact them by phone or via their website, and most network operators are on social media too. · 105 is a free service for people in England, Scotland and Wales. · Customers can call 105 no matter who they choose to buy electricity from. · Customers can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put anyone in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, they should call the emergency services too. A consumer awareness campaign will run from September through to next spring and will include PR, media advertising, social media and coordinated messaging through partner channels.

DEFIBRILLATOR An automatic public defibrillator is now on the wall of the village hall by the main entrance. The defibrillator has been registered with the Ambulance Services and they will also be able to assist you if you need to use it. It is fully automatic and has spoken instructions which are simple to follow. Remember to always telephone 999 first.
Message from Canterbury City Council Cut up your cardboard Our refuse trucks are struggling to effectively crush large pieces of cardboard and boxes. This takes up a lot of space and reduces the amount of waste the truck can hold – resulting in the crew either making two trips to the recycling site, or putting it in landfill. We’re asking you to make sure that individual pieces of cardboard are no larger than 60cm2 – about the length of your arm. These can then be bundled flat for collection. We’ll be putting stickers on large pieces of cardboard we can’t take, asking you to break it down for the next collection. For more details about this, visit www.canterbury.gov.uk/cardboard If your cardboard is business waste, visit commercial waste for details on how to dispose of it properly.
