St John’s Junior School Seen In Better Days

It is nice to see the former St John’s C of E Junior School pictured right in it’s hay day back in the middle of the 20th century, and not in it’s sorry state today after many years of senseless vandalism.

As a residents association S.A.G.E. has fought the case to either develop the site or demolish the building which is an eyesore in Goldenhill Village.

Old Church School after arson attack in February 2019

The main problem the authorities and Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association has is because the building is encompassed by St John’s Church, which keeps them both under the listed buildings act, and to develop the land has and still is a difficult one to resolve.

Is Your Vehicle Compatible To Use E10 Petrol

Hundreds of thousands of drivers have been warned their car isn’t compatible with the new greener E10 petrol that is being rolled out across forecourts.

It comes as part of government plans to tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. The difference between E10 and E5 petrol is that the former contains up to 10% ethanol – double the 5% amount found in E5.

The RAC estimates that 700,000 older vehicles shouldn’t use E10 – these vehicles must instead opt to use more expensive E5 super unleaded which will cost more.

To check if your vehicle can run on E10 petrol follow the link. https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-e10-petrol?eid=DM1065627&bid=1829811984

Vaccine Passport Scams

Action Fraud has received over 700 reports from members of the public about fake emails purporting to be from the NHS. The emails claim to be able to provide people with a “digital passport” that “proves you have been vaccinated against COVID-19”. These emails are fake, and the links within them lead to genuine-looking websites that steal your personal and financial information.

If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, you can report it by forwarding the email to: report@phising.gov.uk. Suspicious text messages can also be reported by forwarding them to the number: 7726 (it’s free of charge).

If you believe you are the victim of a fraud, please report this to Action Fraud as soon as possible by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.
