NHP Energy Levels! Save money with Smart Meters

Posted on

Did you know that all households in England, Scotland, and Wales are to be offered a smart meter by the end of 2020.

All though it is not obligatory, having a smart meter means the end of estimated bills, no more having to read the meter or trying to work out your bill and it also means nobody has to come into your home for meter readings.

With your smart meter, you’ll also get an easy-to-understand portable display that shows you exactly what you’re spending in pounds and pence and in near real time which can help you cut costs and save money.

This means you can also work out which appliances are guzzling the most energy or show the kids the difference it can make when they remember to turn the lights off.

Once you have a smart meter, you’ll only get accurate bills from your energy supplier, just as you do with your phone bill.

Calderdale’s response to the raising of the UK’s terror threat level to critical

Posted on

Statement from the Calderdale Community Safety Partnership

Our deepest sympathies and thoughts are with everyone affected by the horrendous incident in Manchester on Monday 22 May.

In response to the incident, the Prime Minister has raised the UK’s terror threat level to critical, which means that a further attack may be imminent.

Due to this threat level, across the country people may see additional armed response police officers and armed military personnel. This is a precaution to keep the public safe.

Don’t be alarmed if you see them here in Calderdale – this is a national response as part of a pre-arranged plan and there is no intelligence to suggest that there is a specific threat to us here.

There may also be increased police presence at events that would not usually require this – again, this is precautionary only.

We have robust partnership arrangements in place and continue do everything we can to keep people safe and provide community reassurance.

For example, the Council is supporting schools, and its neighbourhood coordinators are out in the community offering reassurance and are ready to discuss any local concerns.

You can help by staying calm, being vigilant and reporting any suspicious activity to the confidential anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789321.

This 2 valve Jawa engine bike specially built for the sport has 28mm spikes in the tyres (350 in total) to ensure a grip on the ice.
