COLD CALLING SALESMEN OUT AND ABOUT IN BRAY SELLING MATTRESSES:
 
Hi
 
Today Tithe Barn Drive was visited by mattress sellers
 
They were saying - “My bedding company has just gone into liquidation”.
 
This is likely to be a scam, where they offer you a half price expensive mattress and then deliver a very poor quality, cheap one.
 
It might be worth issuing a warning.
 
Best wishes Ken
 
Thanks Ken.  Please remember our NHW Motto:
 
I DON’T BUY GOODS OR SERVICES AT THE DOOR
 
The only items that may be sold door to door without a ‘Pedlar’s Certificate’  are books and food.  A pedlars Certificate is a small white document issued by police forces to people of ‘Good Character’.  They won’t be issued to ‘scammers’ !
 
NEXT from Catherine Williams at the DAAT - The Drug & Alcohol Action Team for the Borough:
 
Hi
 
Please could you promote the updated ‘Dementia Directory’ via Thames Valley Alert ?  It contains details of all the services available in the Royal Borough, for those with dementia and their carers.  Paper copies will be available in late October.
 
If anyone would like to order one, please email publichealth@rbwm.gov.uk
 
Many thanks
 
Catherine

I have received a gentle reprimand from Peter re my reference to ‘Tap Cards’ and keeping them safe as you do not need a signature or PIN number to use them !
 
Hi
 
The card is not called “tap”, that’s what you do to use it.  It’s called a “Contactless Payment Card” Smiley
 
Peter
 
Contactless Payment Card it is !!!

From the Windsor Lions:
 
Good afternoon
 
Thank you for the opportunity earlier this afternoon to discuss a new initiative from Windsor Lions, called ‘Lion's Den Challenge’ with the aim to create sustainable projects that will directly benefit the local community, based in Windsor, Ascot, Datchet, Eton, Eton Wick, Old Windsor, Sunningdale, Sunninghill, or Wraysbury.
Windsor Lions Launch The Lion’s Den Challenge!

A challenge to youth and senior groups in the Windsor area, to present community initiatives for substantial financial prizes - £8,000 to be won!

The Windsor Lions, the leading local community service organisation, has launched an innovative project to stimulate local youth and older groups to develop new ideas for community related initiatives that will benefit local people in Windsor and the surrounding district.

Entitled the Lion’s Den Challenge, the Windsor Lions’ project aims to create sustainable projects that will directly benefit the local community.  The concept is based on the highly popular TV programme, ‘Dragon’s Den’, where budding entrepreneurs seeking financial investment present their business initiatives for scrutiny by multi-millionaires.  Youth and senior groups will be invited to present their ideas to a panel of prominent local business people, headed by the President of Windsor Lions, which will judge their proposals and make financial rewards to the winning projects.

Lion President Paul Maxwell commented:  We are very excited about this, our latest community initiative.  We are keen to stimulate youth and senior groups in our area to come up with new ideas for projects that will deliver sustainable, long-term community related benefits for local people.  We are very keen to progress our community work – over the past two years or so we have staged prostate cancer awareness sessions with another planned for next Spring and, more recently, a diabetes awareness promotion.  The Lion’s Den Challenge will hopefully drive new ideas for the benefit of local communities with youth and senior groups leading the way.”
 
A Community Project should be a project (new or existing) which benefits either the wider community, or a group of individuals within the community.  The competition is divided into two categories: Junior teams with all members 18 years old and under prior to 31st December 2017, or senior teams with members over 18 years old. The competition is available for small local community groups, and small local charities based in any of the following: Windsor, Ascot, Datchet, Eton, Old Windsor, Sunningdale, Sunninghill, or Wraysbury.
 
Four prizes each of £2000 will be presented to two winners in each category for the further development of their projects.
 
Applicants should contact Lion Mike Sells: mikepsells@gmail.com  to register their interest by Tuesday 31st October 2017.  The winners will be announced before Christmas.
Windsor Lions Club is part of Lions International, the largest community service organisation in the world.  Worldwide there are about 43,000 Lions Clubs in over 180 countries, there are more than 1.4 million members. Windsor like all other Lions Club, has the motto “we serve”, with a committed membership, Windsor Lions holds several major fund raising events each year, and provision of service within the local community.

Windsor Lions was established in 1961 and have raised funds in the region of £2m by organising events and corporate sponsorship, these include: Charity Auctions, Golf days, Quiz Nights, Race/Casino evenings, Obstacle Horse Ride, Marathon Row on the Thames and Swimathons.

We serve the community by supporting Local people in need - Youth projects, Senior Citizens groups, Mencap, provision of sports Facilities for the disabled and Holidays for the elderly, these are some of the ways in which The Lions Club of Windsor offer our support.
