Local Bailiffs Action

We have had an increased number of people coming to our bureau after visits from Bailiffs collecting fines issued by Magistrates Courts. A Magistrates court fine can be issued for many different reasons including non payment of TV licence or dropping a cigarette end on the ground. When they reach bailiff stage the fine has grown with added fees. A debt that started at £75 can increase to £500 or more.

Bailiffs have increased powers when dealing with these debts and we have had recent reports of the Police accompanying them on their visits. When a bailiff knocks on your door with a Police officer, you need to know why they are there. The only role they have is to step in if there is a breach of the peace. They are not there to help the bailiff collect the debt. They should not speak to you and ask you to let them in and you never have to let a bailiff into your house.

If this happens to you, bring any letters or information they give you to us at the CAB and we can help deal with the debt.

For further information on bailiffs powers see bailiff information on Advice Guide or go to your nearest Citizens Advice Bureau.

For more Bailiff information go to our Blogspot....

"Still Around"?....

Then add your name to the forum list of those people who are, "still around", in other words you haven't kicked the bucket ....yet. Just a thought that came to me the other day...not hearing from a mate for quite some time, I wonder, "Is he still around". It's always terrible when we lose track of each other, especially those of us who have known each other since childhood. Plus, it's another way of people recognizing your name in the list and getting in touch with you after many years apart. ADD YOUR NAME NOW.

Kindly donated to the Speke website by Graham Constable.

I am attaching a school picture from the primary class of 1957 or 58. at Alderwood Road. The school teacher was called Achin. Love to hear from anyone who recognises themselves.

I was moved to Millwood shortly after.

I remember the Queen mother visiting about the same time.
