News from "Which?" Campaigns

Victims tricked into sending money to scammers will soon have new rights and better protection.

Banks receiving fraudulent transfers will be forced to deal with complaints if victims believe the bank didn’t do enough to prevent it. Plans will also allow victims to escalate their complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service, which has the power to make a ruling and resolve the dispute.

This is great news – victims have told us it can be a real struggle to get their complaints heard and find out what happened to their missing cash.

Do you think banks should do more to stop processing fraudulent transactions?

Commemorating the end of World War I

Ros Lane write:

On Friday, 26 October 2018 Maisemore Local History Society with St Giles Church will commemorate the end of the 1914-1918 war, 100 years ago. Starting at 7:30 p.m. in St Giles Church, Rose Spence, historian, will give an illustrated talk entitled “1914-1918 Village Life during the Great War”. 

After her talk, Rev John Longuet-Higgins will give a short address. This will then be followed by refreshments and drinks. There is nothing to pay; just come along and remember those people of this village who walked out to fight for their country and never came back. We will remember them.

Delays on Over roundabout works

Gloucestershire County Council is desperate to catch up on the Over roundabout works programme that has been delayed following the piling difficulties of late.  The problem appears to have been that the ground where the piling is going in was much harder than the surveys had indicated, so that alternative methods - and additional machinery - has been required.
In order to catch up, the Contractor requires a further week of night works  this week (25th-29th June) on the A40 westbound (Longford to Over). They are confident that next week's work should be sufficient to complete the piling and remove the night time closures.
Major Schemes Team Leader says, "I fully appreciate that this these overnight works and associated road closures have impacted many of your parishioners and I sincerely hope that my next update to you will be notifying you that we have completed piling."
