New phone number for reporting power cuts When the power goes out, it can leave people feeling unsure about what to do, with many wrongly thinking they should call the electricity supplier they pay their bill to.  In order to solve this problem, a new phone number is being launched by electricity networks. From 6th September 2016, dialling 105 will connect callers to their local electricity network operator.  105 is available to electricity customers in England, Scotland and Wales. The number can be accessed from most landlines and mobile phones. It doesn’t matter who you choose to buy electricity from - anyone can call 105.


The public can also call 105 if they spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put them, or someone else, in danger. If there’s a serious immediate risk, the emergency services should be called too.

Missing cat - 4 yr old grey cat Smokey, missing from Needwiid since Saturday 6th August.  Reward for finding her - call Katy on 07904 582770

Highway defect reporting - the Staffordshire County Council Hightways call centre is no longer accepting e-mails as a way of reporting defects.  Please ring 0300 111 8000 or use the ‘Report it’ page, where photos can be attached,  or the ‘Mystaffs’app page with separate links to download the app through Google Play store of iTunes. Once reported this goes straight to the system ready to be directed to the correct team without going through the call centre.

Police Contact Advice:

Telephone 999 in an emergency where there is a danger to life or a crime is in progress.
Telephone 101 for non-emergencies where police attendance is required, to report a crime or to report any other incidents. Calls to 101 have a fixed cost of 15p.



We should like to express our sincere thanks to Councillor Bob Fraser, Councillor Simon Gaskin and Councillor Duncan Goodfellow for funding the village hall £500 each towards cavity wall insulation.

We should also like to acknowledge a grant of £1,000 from Western Power Distribution Community Chest which has helped fund the installation of uVPC doors to the kitchen and one of the main double door exits.

These energy efficient measures will hopefully make the hall more comfortable for users and reduce our carbon footprint.
