2018-0219 - POLICE Notice …Fraudulent Company Operating In West London

Dear All
The following message was received from PC David Williams, Hammersmith & Fulham Police:
 
RE: Fraudulent Company
Operating in West London

Good Afternoon, 

I trust you have had a relaxing weekend. I wish to make you aware of a fraudulent tree surgery company operating in West London. 

They are called 'Chiswick Tree Care" and they are charging extortionate amounts and in return, they are not doing the work. 

Always beware when getting work done on your property. Do not give money up front. If the company does get in contact with you, please notify Police immediately. In this post, I have attached a scanned copy of their leaflet.

    

Kind Regards PC David L. G. Williams 604FH (Dedicated Ward Officer - Askew)

2017-1223 - Local Rubbish And Recycling Collections

Dear All
A message from LBHF
Check your Christmas bin, recycling and Xmas tree collection days
We wish you a very merry Christmas and our best wishes for the New Year. To give you one less thing to worry about, be sure to check the revised collection days for your bins and clear recycling sacks over the holidays. Full details here: https://www.lbhf.gov.uk/articles/news/2017/12/check-your-christmas-collection-days-and-help-us-maximise-our-festive-recycling This year, we want to recycle even more of your waste than ever before – including your Christmas trees. You’d be surprised how many items from Christmas are capable of being recycled, rather than tossed in the bin.
We want to become the most environmentally positive borough in the country, but need your help to achieve this. So check your dates in the table below and let’s welcome 2018 with a cracker of a collection.

This year, we want to recycle even more of your waste than ever before – including your Christmas trees. You’d be surprised how many items from Christmas are capable of being recycled, rather than tossed in the bin.
If you run out of clear recycling sacks with your extra Christmas recycling you can pick up more rolls from your local library or council buildings, such as Hammersmith Town Hall.

Christmas trees

If your recycling and rubbish is collected in sacks from outside your home, leave your real tree in your front garden or outside your property for recycling.
Please make sure our collection team can see it easily – so don’t put it behind a wall or fence and please don’t obstruct the pavement.
And don’t forget to remove the pot and any decorations.
Trees must be ready for collection by midday on your collection day between Tuesday 2 January and Monday 15 January, and will be collected in the afternoon.
There are also designated collection points where you can take your real Christmas tree for recycling:
  • Fulham Palace Road Cemetery (opposite Queensmill Road)
  • Loris Road Community Gardens
  • New King's Road (on edge of Eel Brook Common)
  • Normand Park (opposite Lillie Road entrance)
  • Ravenscourt Park (by football pitch)
  • Wormwood Scrubs car park (off Scrubs Lane)
