105 for power cuts

On 6th September a new national phone number “105” will be 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.

Police report

Summer home security and personal safety

The summer has certainly arrived in Norfolk with temperatures soaring over the last couple of days; however, don’t let this lovely weather cloud your judgement over home security and personal safety.

Opportunist thieves will be on the look-out for personal property left within easy reach of open windows and unlocked doors.

Common mistakes are leaving handbags and car keys close to unlocked front or back doors, or leaving jewellery and electronic items on display near an open window.

To deter walk-in thieves, householders are advised to:

  • Keep doors and windows shut and locked where possible, especially if the room/home is unoccupied.
  • Lock your doors if you are spending time outside and out of view of your home.
  • When answering your door, make sure other external doors are locked first.
  • Keep valuables and personal property out of sight, remove from window sills, worktops and tables.

Also vulnerable at this time of year are cars left for long periods of time at coastal car parks and beauty spots. Motorists are advised to remove all valuables from display and from the vehicle where possible.

Finally, Norfolk is well known for its maze of open waterways and on a hot day the water may look an inviting place to cool down. Please remember the rivers around the broads are unsuitable for swimming in and have hidden dangers such as a sudden change in depth, decreases in temperatures and unseen objects and currents, which can cause even the strongest of swimmers to get into difficulty very quickly.

Acle Lands Trust update

Acle Lands Trust would like to express their thanks to the 40+ volunteers who helped during the successful working party weekend at the end on June to commence laying the new path through Damgate Wood as part of the Tesco #Bagsofhelp scheme. 

Phase 2 is now planned and we are again looking for volunteers to assist with loading, barrowing & raking stone to continue the path further into the woods.  If you are able to assist on Saturday 30th July between 9.30am & 1.00pm then please do come along.  We will be splitting the work into a relay and you only need to do what you feel you can.  Tea/Coffee and biscuits will be provided.

We hope that with enough people we can move & lay the 6 tonne pile on the Saturday.  (last month we moved approx 17 tonnes on the Sat, although we do have further to push it this time!)

This short video shows what is achievable with enough volunteers:
