Scooter Safe

mobility scooterMobility scooters offer a lifeline to many people giving mobility and independence.  Chances are you know someone who uses one or maybe you use one yourself, so here are some reminders on how to store scooters safely.

Firstly, storing scooters out of the way means you have a clear escape route in the event of a fire so it’s important not to store them in communal halls and stairwells.  Scooters left on charge overnight or whilst you’re out can be a common cause for fire, therefore make sure they are serviced regularly and keep an eye on them whilst they are charging. Finally scooters can be everyday trip hazard so make sure they are not blocking paths or doorways.

By keeping communal areas clear, you are helping to keep you, your family and neighbours safe.

Cutting the Cost of Christmas

The cost of Christmas can be worrying, but you can still have a magical day without breaking the bank. Here are some classic ways to cut the cost of the big day:

Presents don’t have to be expensive – charity shops have some great pre-loved gifts.

Save your Christmas cards and reuse them next year as gift tags.

Finally, as tempting as it may seem, avoid costly door step loans! They often come with high interest rates and unmanageable repayment plans.

Park House Caretaker

‘The Life of Brian’

No, we’re not on about the British film classic by Monty Python, but our very own Brian who is our new caretaker for Park House.

Park House Caretaker Brian sml

We welcome Brian from a life down-under where he used to run his own business, but he couldn’t resist the lure of Cornwall and recently returned to the county.

As the only high rise building in Cornwall, Brian has a tall order on his hands.  With over sixty flats across eleven floors, he will be responsible for the upkeep of the building, ensuring Park House remains safe and secure for its residents.

Brian steps in from Peter who recently retired from the caretaking role after nine years. We wish Peter a fond farewell together with a long and happy retirement.
