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.

 

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:
