Members of Stretton Parish Council, volunteers and MWH Treatment Ltd worked together on Wednesday and Thursday (25th and 26th June 2014) to move and lay a 30ft section of disused railway track at the location of the loading dock on the Jinny Nature Trail.
Our thanks go to the workers and to Network Rail for donating the second section of track.
AN INTRODUCTION TO 105 - THE NEW WAY TO REPORT POWER CUTS.
Callers dialling 105, which is free to use, will be put straight through to their local electricity network operator, helping avoid potential confusion or people contacting the wrong organisation, such as the company they pay their bill to.
The number, which is available to electricity customers in England, Scotland and Wales, will enable people to report or get information about power cuts as well as report damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put themselves, or someone else, in danger. 105 is funded and delivered by the electricity network operators, and is a first for the UK’s energy industry.
The launch comes as figures reveal that 72% of people don’t know who to contact if they have a power cut, with a further 43% indicating that they incorrectly call the electricity supplier they pay their bill to, when in fact they should contact their local electricity network operator.
