Documentary Opportunity

Troops 2 Trades CIC – http://www.troops2trades.org.uk – has been requested to assist in the making of a short documentary featuring the transition from Service life to Civilian life and employment. Troops2Trades logo (2)

Troops2Trades are looking for anyone that’s not camera shy and situated ideally within a 25 mile radius of Lincoln University for logistical reasons.

The scope of the project is to have honest comments on:

  • the transition – whether difficulties or assistance was required;
  • how this affected the family and children, or as a single service person;
  • how were you received and accommodated in the first years;
  • anyone who has transitioned with medical discharge from the services and what that experience had, as an affect, on yourself and family;
  • Finally as a clear alternative, anyone who experienced no problem in walking into civilian life, and what they attribute that experience to.
Troops2Trades are looking forward to hearing from anyone interested in participating in the documentary by no later than mid-March 2016
For anyone,  interested in being in front of a camera for a short period of time and contributing to this documentary, please get in touch with T2T CIC via their website enquiry form http://www.troops2trades.org.uk/contact-us/

Please share this newsletter if you know anyone who you think would be interested in taking part.

 

 

 

 

If You Use Gmail, You Might Need This Some Day

Jack had a concern this morning when he came into the office to find that he was racking up nearly 10GB of email data on a Google Business Mail Account.

With Gmail smashing the Hotmail record for the world’s largest email service, he was certain there would be a way to resolve this. After some searching he came across this: https://www.findbigmail.com/

Find Big Mail
Find Big Mail is perfect if your gmail is full and out of space because it integrates with your Gmail account and folders mail by size. Jack managed to cut down on 20% of inbox size by removing just short of 100 emails.

If you use Gmail, you might need this one day so keep it in mind.

Fire Risk Tumble Dryer Recall

It’s been reported in the press recently that there are a “significant” number of dryers which were sold in the last 11 years in the UK that may need a “service” due to a fire risk fear.

The models of tumble dryers to be worried about are the large air vented dryers and the condensing dryers by Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda.

Indesit have reported that excess fluff (lint) could come into contact with the heating element of the tumble dryer which could cause a fire.   Indesit are now recalling all machines which were purchased between April 2004 and October 2015.  Their advice is to continue using your machine but not to leave it unattended while in use.

Indesit will be contacting the owners of these machines to arrange a service call to modify the appliances.  There will be no charge for this and it will take approximately one hour.

The advice from DB Fire Safety is to make sure you do the following:

  1. Clean lint filters prior to each use
  2. Ensure the dryer is well ventilated
  3. Don’t leave the dryer operating unattended.
