Hi here are some tips to keep us all safe this Christmas.

The following has been passed to us via local police:

Christmas is fast approaching, Royal Mail and the Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following scam:

A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a premium rate number).

If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message, you will already have been billed £315 for the phone call.

If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 020 7239 6655. For more information, see the Crime Stoppers website:
http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org/crime-prevention/helping-prevent-crime/scams/postal-delivery-scam

Please be aware that the premium rate number may change but nevertheless please do not call any number stated on a card from PDS. Can you please make all your family, friends and neighbours aware of the above.

This Neck Support Lets You Nap Practically Anywhere

I think we can all do with one of these at some point in our lives...

If there's one thing mankind doesn't have enough of, and never will, it's contraptions that make it easier and more comfortable to stop and have a nap--anywhere. Designed to replace those floppy neck pillows that never really work, the NapAnywhere works kind of like a neck brace, but instead of letting your spine heal, it instead lets you catch a little shut-eye.
