Wednesday, 20 May 2015 08:47

Local resident, Ray Mitchell, is warning people to be on their guard after receiving a letter saying he had won £825,000 thanks to the People's Postcode Lottery. This has a striking similarity to a Grimbsy pensioner, George Lee, 69, of Winthorpe Road, received the letter, dated July 2014, from a man based in London purporting to be from the lottery organisation.

In the letter sent to Mr Lee, a man called Anthony Stan claimed that Mr Lee was the lucky winner of £825,000 thanks to the People's Postcode Lottery.

Saturday, 16 May 2015 09:17

Transport chiefs must explain how they got their plans for the A483 upgrade so wrong.

That is the view of MP for Wrexham, Ian Lucas, after an extended deadline for the works was missed and the project’s finish time extended until the end of next month. The project has been beset with delays from the outset, and during the General Election campaign a proposed end date in May was missed – with the end date for the project being moved to June.

Trustee Opportunity with Welsh Hearts/Calonnau Cymru Print
Friday, 15 May 2015 08:04

Welsh Hearts/Calonnau Cymru is the charity working on the prevention and management of heart disease in Wales, and works to fund life-saving equipment and cardiovascular medical research based in Wales. We are an independent charity based solely in Wales. In Wales there are approximately 8000 sudden cardiac arrests outside hospital each year. It’s shocking that the survival rate is only 3%. Where a defibrillator is used, the survival rate can raise to 47 - 50%. Unfortunately, there are not enough defibrillators in Wales or trained people to give victims the best chance of survival during those first few critical minutes. With access to more defibrillators we can provide a vital link in the chain of survival so that even more lives can be saved throughout Wales. Welsh Hearts aim to equip people with vital emergency and life-saving skills, including training on how to safely use a defibrillator – the knowledge and actions that could save a life. We offer free CPR and defibrillator training to communities all over Wales and a team of 200 qualified medical professionals who work in Wales delivers all training.
