UK Homeless Crisis: 150 homeless families in Oldham

‘Shocking’ figures show that nearly 150 families in crisis are stuck living in temporary accommodation in Oldham.

The town hall’s housing boss told councillors there there are more than double the number of ‘homeless households’ turning to the council for help than last year.

Coun Hannah Roberts told the full council meeting: “The figures are shocking and show a marked increase in families in crisis in Oldham.”

She was responding to a question from St Mary’s ward Councillor Nyla Ibrahim, who asked how many families are living in temporary accommodation waiting for a new home, compared to 2018.

“What action is needed to solve this crisis?,” she asked.

The meeting was told that in quarter two of last year – April 1 to June 30 – there were 67 households in temporary accommodation.

In the same period this year, there were 148 families in temporary accommodation, with 146 still not placed into a permanent home.

Eco Living: Plants for family gardens

One of the ways of achieving eco living is by having a family garden where you can grow plants for environmental protection and food. A family garden is like an outdoor room, a space where the family can relax, play and interact with nature.

In a family garden you need tough plants that are easy to look after and safe with children around: avoid fragile blooms, anything with thorns, or plants that can cause skin irritations or that are poisonous to eat. Teach children never to put leaves, flowers or berries in their mouths.

A good backbone of easy-care shrubs will provide structure, then add a few perennials for both colour and fragrance. Lavender and chocolate cosmos (Cosmos atrosanguineus) are good choices for their lovely scent, as are Mexican orange blossom (Choisya ternata) and the thornless rose ‘Zephirine Drouhin’. You could also consider mallow (Lavatera). dogwood(cornus), buddleia (which is robust and attractive to butterflies) and the vigorious kerria japonica.

If you have space, set aside an area for children to grow their oen plants. Sweet peas, sunflowers, beans, lettuces and nasturtiums are easy to cultivate and will give pleasure all summer long.

Flood rescue in Northern part of England

People are being evacuated from their homes and there is chaos on the roads and trains after torrential downpours flooded parts of northern England.

Six severe warnings – meaning a danger to life – are in place along the River Don in Doncaster with some residents being told to leave their homes.

Dozens of people slept on chairs and benches after being left stranded in a shopping centre in Sheffield overnight.

People are being ferried to safety in Rotherham

More than 100 flood warnings are in place across England

Fran Lowe, from the Environment Agency (EA), said urged people to take them seriously “as they represent a threat to life”.

“Respond immediately and get out of any place affected by a severe flood warning,” she said.

More than 50 people have been rescued from their static homes after a caravan site near Doncaster flooded.

Elderly and vulnerable people were among those who were led to safety from Willow Bridge Caravan Site after the River Don overtopped in the area.

Meanwhile, residents in Rotherham have been told to stay at home and not leave unless asked to do so by emergency services.

The council said the town centre, Whiston, Catcliffe and Laughton Common were areas of greatest concern.

£1.3m UK house for Sale with multiple plug sockets trending on twitter

post  on Twitter from Toby Davis, which has since had more than 6,000 likes and 2,000 retweets, first picked up on the excessive socket placement.

He wrote: “Thinking about buying this house, but I’m not sure it has enough plug sockets,” and later added “or downlighters”.

Photos of the inside of a £1.3 million house on Rightmove have left people on Twitter feeling unwell and wondering what the property was used for by the previous owners.

The five-bedroom detached home in Middlesex promises a family-friendly location, bright spaces and a conservatory leading to a patio area and spacious garden behind.

Almost every single room seems to be inexplicably covered with plug sockets.

Sockets stacked on top of each other plaster the walls and line the windows – and some of them don’t even line up.

The previous owner must have been operating a call centre or media company from his home. What do you think?
