What a Mess!

Lauren sends a note of warning to Stoke locals, due to a recent two-week break, she says, I missed our local council waste collections, so I ended up using a man and the van rubbish clearance service I found on Facebook, it cost me £35 and the guy fly tipped the waste. I ended up going to court and being fined as it was my fault for not making sure the guy was a registered waste carrier.

Lauren urges anyone wishing to have waste removed to check that the company you hire has a waste carriers licence issued by the UK environment agency. You can check to see if a business is registered here https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers

Also check to see if they are registered with AFTA, the anti fly-tipping association which you can check here https://www.afta.org.uk/

Last thing you want to do is be taken to court and prosecuted, and end up with a criminal record. Be very wary when hiring these men and van type services to clear your waste.

Official Local Election Statement

Image result for local election 2019 stoke on trent

Leaflets are continually being distributed to residents in Sandyford & Goldenhill stating that Lucy Kelly who is the Labour & Co-operative Party Candidate for Goldenhill & Sandyford in the 2nd May council election, is a member of Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association.

The comment of saying Lucy Kelly is a member of Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) is being interpreted that she is a representative on the committee, which is untrue.

Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association is a non-political organisation that is non-bias to election candidates and political parties, and this is why a statement is again being released on social media to stop any further confusion to residents.
