Electric Blanket Testing

Warwickshire County Council's Trading standards Service is offering electric blanket testing free of charge to Warwickshire Over Sixties.  Electric blanket tests will take place at several venues in October and November.

Thursday 21st October - Rugby Library
Friday 22nd October - Age Concern Pop-in Centre, United Reformed Church Stratford upon Avon
Monday 1st November - Kenilworth Library
Tuesday 2nd November - Leamington Library
Wednesday 3rd November - Henley in Arden Fire Station
Thursday 4th October - Nuneaton Fire Station

To book an appointment call freephone 0800 413332

Tests will be conducted by appointment only and bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis.  The number of appointments is limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

The free phone number will be staffed between 9.00 and 5.00 Monday to Friday and an answerphone will operate at all other times.                                                                                                                                               

In past years we have found faults on up to 75% of all the blankets we have checked.  Unsafe electric blankets are the cause of many house fires each year, and can often lead to death or serious injury.  Elderly people are particularly at risk, making up a large percentage of reported deaths.  We are determined to rid Warwickshire of dangerous and unsafe electrical blankets and we urge you to take up this opportunity.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
