Beware of Rogue Traders


In the last few days, Rogue Traders have approached elderly residents in the Edwalton and Lady Bay areas, to carry out unwanted gardening work. After carrying out this work, they demand large amounts of money from the resident.

Please be aware of these traders as a genuine trader will not: Call without an appointment, ask you to go to the bank to withdraw cash, offer to take you to the bank to withdraw cash, ask  you to pay in full before the work is complete, insist you to make a decision about the work on the spot or scare you into doing the work.

To report problems involving an suspected Rogue Traders contact Citizens Advice consumer service through their website www.citizenadvice.org.uk for further advice. If you see any thing suspicious in your area you can also contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 non urgent or 999 if an emergency.

Edwalton Football Club make a move to the next stage of their history

Next season will see both Edwalton Football Club and Edwalton Cavaliers begin a new chapter in their history by moving from the Alford Road site that’s been home for the last 27 years to take up residence at the Nottingham Football Centre’s Rushcliffe site.

Over the last year the club has been completely focused on working towards taking this momentous step and feel it was what was needed if they were to achieve their two key objectives, making every aspect of football available to the community and becoming a totally self-sufficient club as chairman Tim Stacey explains:

“Our first black tie ball earlier this year allowed us to raise enough money to organise refereeing and coaching courses for our older age groups so they can start taking responsibility for our younger age groups. It also gave us enough money to provide a series of football open days for girls, the first of which saw 40 girls across a variety of age groups enjoy professional coaching for free at Edwalton Primary School.”

However Tim was also quick to add:

“The only thing missing was a real identity for the club and as a committee we felt we could never cultivate that at Alford Road. However, having moved all of our coaching to the NFC two years ago, we recognised broadening out that partnership could well provide the answer.”

Richard Hipkiss, Managing Director of Field Sports Management – owners of the Nottingham Football Centre – agreed:

“When we sat down to talk it immediately became obvious we all wanted the same thing. We both want to build a real community club and work together towards – we hope! – establishing a senior Saturday afternoon side in the coming years that will really promote just how active football is in Rushcliffe Borough. We also agreed that a club needs a physical focal point and we hope that the fast improving social facilities at our Rushcliffe site will deliver just that, somewhere the parents and players can meet up and somewhere the club can put up their colours in and promote their successes.”
