We are writing in regards to a “Staying Safe” session that we are holding on Friday 4th December at 2pm. It will be held at the Holbeach Hub premises on Boston Road, Holbeach. The session will last approximately one hour.
At any time of the year there are a number of scams and security risks that occur, but often at Christmas time the “scammers” become even more prevalent. Therefore we decided to hold a free session to cover many of the topics of concerns and invite any group and individual that it may be of interest to. Continue reading →
Regular walks, as well as other forms of exercise, can help reduce or eliminate any of your pet’s destructive chewing, digging, or scratching. Pets are like children: If you are not giving them something constructive to do, you may not like what they choose to do.
HELPS STOP HYPERACTIVITY
Walks can help to alleviate extra energy your pet may have, calming it down and reducing any hyperactivity, excitability, and even nighttime activity. A walk can help your pet to feel more relaxed and sleepy rather than restless at bedtime.
HELPS WITH WEIGHT CONTROL
An overweight pet is not a healthy pet. In addition to regulating its diet, to keep your pet in tip-top shape, you should be doing your best to provide regular exercise as well.
HELPS THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
Regular walks can be extremely beneficial to your pet’s digestive system, and they can aid in relieving constipation.
With effect from the 1st October 2015, there will be new UK Fire Safety Legislation for Landlords. The new regulations will make it compulsory for all landlords to fit smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in rented properties.
This legislation will mean that a smoke alarm must be fitted on each floor of the premises. For properties with a solid burning appliance there will be a requirement to fit a monoxide detector.
It will be the responsibility of landlords to check that these alarms are fitted and working at the commencement of each tenancy. If they choose to disobey this new legislation and fail to comply, they will face the possibility of a penalty of up to £5,000.
It’s not all one way traffic though. Tenants will also be given some responsibility too. There will be a requirement for tenants to test the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on a weekly basis. Any faults must be reported to the landlord or agency.
It has been reported that people are at least four times more likely to die in a house fire if no smoke alarm has been fitted. Our hope is that this new legislation will make homes significantly safer for tenants.
