Rogue Trader in Lymm

Posted by Neil on Wednesday, 05 November 2014 at 08:55:40

Filed under: Lymm, Crime

A rogue trader carried out unauthorised work in a pensioner's garden in Lymm before demanding £600.

Salus Evergreen Jones, aged 35, of Two Acre Park, Walton, has been successfully prosecuted by Warrington Trading Standards.

Warrington Magistrates Court heard on Wednesday how Jones visited the 75-year-old man's home in Lymm on March 17 this year when he worked on trees and 'pressured' the victim iot handing over a cheque for £600.

The defendant returned a week later, and claimed to have carried out more work, but was told to leave. Jones provided false contact details to the victim.

Following a report from a concerned resident, the incidents were investigated by Trading Standards. Officers were able to trace the cheque written by the victim to identify and locate Jones.

A refund of £600 was ordered, and a fine and costs of £820 was imposed by magistrates. Jones has been recalled to prison as he was on licence at the time of the offence.

Following the hearing, Peter Astley, assistant director for regulation and public protection at the council, said: “Traders who use aggressive practices prey on the vulnerable will not be tolerated in Warrington and we will do whatever we can to curb this despicable crime."

A Guide to Lymm

Posted by Neil on Monday, 27 October 2014 at 15:18:24

Filed under: Announcements, Lymm, Interview, Landmarks

Visitors to the centre of Lymm have a new reason to get the most out of the visit. Lymm Parish Council has launched a new Guide to Lymm.

It contains a brief history of the village, a description of its main features and details of the festivals and events that are held each year. The 12 page booklet has been compiled by last year’s parish council chairman, Councillor Ian Marks.

Clr Marks said: “Lymm has a great deal to offer visitors and I felt we needed a booklet that brought it all together. "Its main purpose is to attract people to visit our village or to encourage people already here to stay for longer.

"The more people who visit and the longer they stay, the more likely they are to spend money and benefit our local shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. "I hope it will also serve as a handy reference for local people who want to know more about our village.

"My thanks to the Local History Society for providing source documents for some of the material, to the local Photographic Society for some of the photographs, to Lymm Life for printing and to everyone else who has contributed in some way.”

This year’s chairman, Clr Kath Buckley added, “l am delighted to promote this informative guide to Lymm and its history. I have found out some interesting and intriguing information about the village that l live in.”

Copies of the Guide will be put in outlets in Lymm where visitors are likely to go and in locations outside the village to tempt them to come to the village. Shortly it will also be available to download from the parish council’s website.

Meanwhile a further boost to tourism could come in the form of a proposed new information and heritage centre. A working party has been set up to look at the viability of a heritage centre in Lymm and see if grant funding would be available to make it happen.
