Electric blanket testing day
Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees are hosting an electric blanket testing day on Tuesday 12th November at the Age UK Choices Centre in Woolshops, 9.30am-12.30pm.
We are expecting a large number of blankets so booking is essential – call 01422 399830 to book your test. Then bring your blanket in and if it fails the safety test, we will replace it free of charge with a similar one of the same size.
At our last session 80% of the blankets tested failed the safety check!
Unsafe blankets are a potential fire risk and West Yorkshire Fire Service will be on hand to offer home fire safety advice.
Here are some MAD events for the Calder Valley – for full details, including any prices, about these and more please consult festival website www.southpennines.co.uk.
