NEW! 3 January 2018 In case of power cuts: Call 105 to report power cuts and damage to the electricity network, or 0800 3163 105 (from a corded phone or mobile phone if you have no power)

 

Preparing for a power cut

Below is some additional advice:

  • Add 105 to the contacts on your mobile phone
  • Keep our Freephone 0800 3163 105 number handy
  • See www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/powercuts for useful videos and advice during a power cut.
  • Locate a torch, check it’s working and make sure you have spare batteries. Take care if using candles.
  • Charge up your mobile phone, and a rechargeable mobile ‘powerbank’ if you have one
  • Use a phone with a cord if you have one, cordless phones don’t work in a power cut
  • Keep fridges and freezers closed, with a blanket over as they will stay cold for many hours
  • Switch off all your electrical equipment, except one light which will let you know when the power comes back on
  • Remember the street lights may also be off so take care if you go out
  • Dress in warm clothes
  • Look out for vulnerable neighbours

NEW! 23 February 2017 Inormation from UK POWER NETWORKS

UK Power Networks owns and maintains the local power lines and substations and is responsible for reconnecting supply after any power cut. It offers a Priority Service Register to which vulnerable people can sign up to; registration enables UK Power Networks to identify customers who are vulnerable or need extra help when the electricity is off as efficiently as possible and to get help out quickly. Residents eligible to sign up include those with a disability or medical dependancy on electricity (ie users of Careline, nebuliser etc), the elderly, those with children under 5 and more. Services available to those on the Register include a 24 hour priority phone number, a dedicated team who will keep you updated during a power cut and other tailored support where appropriate. Further information on the Priority Service Register is available from ukpowernetworks.co.uk or by calling 08003163105.

Registration forms for this service will also be made available in the village hall after 16 March.
