Other Notices for the EMBA area

An old scam has recently been revived and tried on one of our churches.  Here are the details so that you can be aware.  "The school books scam has been around for years and seems to be making a comeback.  The scam starts when you receive a phone call from someone “thanking you” for supporting their cause and “agreeing” to advertise in a school booklet that will be distributed through local schools “of your choice”.  They claim you agreed to advertise and support them some months ago and the booklets “are now ready”. This is of course a scam and they are lying to you, simply tell them you don’t ever recall agreeing to this and that you are not interested. If they threaten legal action (very rare they normally just put the phone down) let them take you – their case would fail.”

Faith Responders - Rev. Andrew Vaughan is the key person in organising the very special network of Faith Responders, who are welcomed by the emergency services for their help in the event of a natural or man-made emergency in Lincolnshire.  They need more volunteers to be trained, to give response volunteers the skills to behave with sensitivity, but also personal resilience. To that end they are recruiting for the next initial training day to be held on Thursday October 19th 2017 (9.30 a.m. to midday) at Bishop Grosseteste University.
