Electric heaters sent to Enfield estate after heating failure

Electric heaters are still not been fully restored for the families who live within a New Southgate housing estate based in Enfield North London and the residents were left without heating services for nearly a fortnight.

Around 100 people living at the Ladderswood Estate have been coping without heating since March 30th this year when pipes from the estates communial boiler burst.

Enfield Homes said it would fix the problem “as soon as possible”, but Brian Stewart, who lives in Curtis House, said no engineers were working at the site when this comment was made.

A letter has now been sent to all homes apologising for the problem and assuring residents that temporary electric heaters, which had been delivered to the estate had been mistakenly left in a basement, would now be given out to the families on the estate.

Peterborough arts centre sent gas bill of over £77k – time to try electric heaters?

Staff at a small charity art centre in Peterborough were left shocked when they were wrongly sent a monthly gas bill for more than £77,000.

The Realitas Community Arts Centre have a budget of around £30 a month for gas bills from energy provider E.ON. But after querying a bill that said the centre owed £876.43, the small gallery was visited by E.ON workers who found that the correct amount had not been charged.

However, rather than sending the charity an invoice for the correct amount, the figure on the new invoice was dramatically raised to a staggering £77,815.85.

Electric heaters hire may be the answer for the arts centre to avoid such problems.
