The parish council is endeavouring to establish GTR's plans for the introduction of charging in the Cooksbridge station car park. Without warning penalty tickets are now being issued for vehicles nor parked in a marked bay. We have protested to GTR about such unfair practice and again asked what is happening. The notice in the car park states clearly that parking is free and as long as the fine has not been paid, appeals can be made via the Independent Appeals Service website. In the meantime it would be prudent to only park in one of the clearly marked bays. We shall communicate further if and when we get clarification from GTR
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.
