My name is Pete Hobson residing on High Burgage.
I am a level 2 British Cycling Instructor.
I am taking out a series of rides for the community and other local villages. The first ride out will be on Sunday 06 Dec, all rides will start from the little park opposite the Post Office.
I am a L2 British Cycling Coach, I intend to get a Lot of the village actively involved in cycling. I want to take a group of at least 50 cyclists from the village on a Coffee and Cake Sunday ride of about 10 miles. Build up slowly and then come summer take them to the Hull Sky Ride.
All rides are free to join in with.
Coming up to Summer I want to do a cycle proficiency course at the school.
If anybody has any question on cycling or bike repairs then please do get in touch with Pete Hobson
Beware of local scams
Rogue trader scam alert over bogus council worker
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: January 21, 2016
Householders in North Lincolnshire are being warned about cold callers
North Lincolnshire Council says it has been made aware of a rogue trader cold calling homes in the district and falsely claiming to work for the local authority.
The council is urging householders to remain vigilant and not to engage with cold callers who appear at their doors.
This man claims to work for North Lincolnshire Council and shows a fake ID badge.
The badge does not have a photograph, which all council ID badges carry.
He has already visited a number of homes across North Lincolnshire requesting that people pay him to trim back trees or bushes, and if they don’t they will be prosecuted and fined thousands of pounds.
"This is not something the council would do," the local authority said.
"If this man approaches you or if you have been scammed by him, please contact Trading Standards on 01724 297659.
"It is important that people are alert and report anything suspicious or cold callers to the Citizen Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506."
Councillor Neil Poole, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, at North Lincolnshire Council said: “We have received a number of complaints about this rogue trader so we are urging people to be vigilant. It is horrible to think that there are people out there willing to take advantage of good people.
"If you have not requested someone to come to your house, then you should always be cautious about these so-called traders turning up unannounced.
“Remember that a council employee carries photographic ID and any relevant paperwork. If you want to check if a caller works for North Lincolnshire Council, you can ring our customer contact centre on 01724 297000. It is always better to be safe than sorry.”
A woman was texted from “.gov.co.uk” and told that she was due a rebate from NLC. She was given a link and told to provide her bank details. NLC state that they would never contact people by text, and if in doubt, give no details but contact their customer services by phone 01724 297000, or email: email@example.com
