Wilford Charity Fireworks - Saturday 8th November from 4:30pm

Thank you for supporting the Wilford Fireworks event in previous years, for which we are very grateful.

This year we hope to provide a bonfire once again, although not the ‘small Welsh hillside’ of former years.

Two Firework Displays again this year, together with a Hog Roast, Real Ale & Music,

featuring local bands Terminal 5 Experience, and Nottingham Ukulele, amongst other things.

We will be giving support to Rainbows Children’s Hospice, and Riding for the Disabled this year

For full details and how to buy your tickets on-line, go to www.wilfordfireworks.org

MESSAGE FROM NOTTINGHAMSHIRE TRADING STANDARDS

25th July 2014

We have been alerted to a report of a company who have cold called a Mansfield resident at the door and told him he is entitled to a free boiler replacement under the government Green Deal initiative. The resident was then asked to pay £299 for an energy assessment survey and told they would get this money back. The resident became suspicious after not being able to get through to the company and reported the matter to Trading Standards. You can find out if a trader you are dealing with is Green Deal approved by calling the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0300 123 1234 or visiting their website at: http://gdorb.decc.gov.uk/consumersearch. More information on Green Deal can be found on the Government website at: https://www.gov.uk/green-deal-energy-saving-measures.

MESSAGE FROM NOTTINGHAMSHIRE TRADING STANDARDS

17th July 2014

Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards have been alerted to a report of a man who has cold called a Woodthorpe resident at the door and provided him with a prize draw ticket to win £1000. The man claimed it was free of charge with no obligation to purchase anything. The resident then subsequently received a phone call claiming the ticket had been registered in a draw and in addition he had won an initial complimentary prize, which amounted to a free carpet clean. Trading Standards are aware of this scam being perpetrated around the country. Once they are in your home it becomes clear that the trader has little intention of providing the free clean; it was just an excuse to get into your house and subject you to their aggressive hard selling tactics. They attempt to get you to agree to buy expensive products you don’t need or agree to a very expensive ‘intensive clean’. Remember that if a trader is in your house you have the right to ask them to leave, if they don’t immediately do so they are committing an offence.
