BCU21 15082018 warning message
This message is put out at the request of our corporate communications department following a spate of vulnerable victim frauds. There are a number of `stories' that are used, one describes being from the NCA investigating the bank, others refer to errors on computers etc.
Scammers are quick-witted and their stories are very convincing. We urge you to read this advice from @GetSafeOnline and start a conversation with older relatives, neighbours and friends to make sure they are confident to say no to #TelephoneScams https://www.getsafeonline.org/protecting-yourself/telephone-banking-fraud/?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=SocialSignIn

With the continuing hot weather, Somerset Waste Partnership and our collections contractor Kier have agreed that all waste collections from now on will start at the earlier time of 6am to help ease the pressure on crews and vehicles. We would be grateful if you could let your residents know of the change, which will stay in place until cooler weather returns, and of the need to ensure all waste containers are out on time.
While we will always do our best to keep parishes informed of waste changes, you may find it useful to bookmark the SWP website to see news announcements:www.somersetwaste.gov.uk

Having a private water supply can be a real boon but private water supplies often pose a health risk because they are not managed or tested in the same way as public supplies. Common problems include bacteria, heavy metals such as iron, manganese, aluminium, lead and arsenic, as well as nitrates, nitrites, ammonia and other minerals. Sometimes the contamination may affect the appearance, taste or smell of the water but it is often not obvious. The best way to be sure your supply is fit for use is to have regular testing carried out.
Somerset Scientific Services, part of Somerset County Council, have been supplying impartial advice and testing for over 50 years. Contact them for information or a quote for a comprehensive UKAS accredited testing package.
