Energy bills on the increase

energy bills

Household energy prices are continuously fluctuating at present. There are multiple schemes around that aim to reduce monthly bills or cost effective products that say will save you money in the long run, however, that still doesn’t necessarily help the situation now.

UK constructionThe level of construction productivity is at its lowest level since 1998. Since the coalition Government came to power in 2010 the UK construction industry has shrunk by 10% and up to 90,000 jobs have been lost. The economy would have grown three times faster had the Government done more to stop the decline in activity for the UK construction industry, says a study for the industry. 

Smoke Alarms

Smoke detectorIt is essential that your home is fitted with smoke alarms so that you are given an early warning if there is an outbreak of fire. There needs to be a device fitted on each floor of your house so that anyone can pick up smoke and sound a warning. The positioning of the device is important and should be placed between sleeping places so a warning can be heard at night and where a fire could start like the kitchen or lounge.  

Barbecue safety in London

BBQ safety londonIt looks like the weather is finally attempting to get a bit warmer, meaning only one thing, its barbecue time. Any available green space, private garden or roof terrace accompanies a good BBQ in London, but health and safety measures need to be taken into account at all times, especially in small and public spaces. There are only a couple of parks in London that allow you to have disposable barbecues, check first so you don’t get a fine.
