Covid vaccine scams:
There are reports in the North West that older residents are being targeted by Covid vaccine scams.
Bolton NHS Foundation Trust reported that some patients in their area have received phone calls to say they will receive their Covid vaccinations at home and they will be coming to their address on a certain time/date to do this. In some cases there is also a request for a fee. This is a scam and we are asking people to be vigilant during the coming weeks and share with friends, neighbours or family who may be at risk and targeted. No one will be contacted to have a vaccine at home.

Latest News of Bootle Parish Council
Please do not expect other people to clear up your mess, take it home
Hi to all at the parish council,
This was found on Sunday morning,
At the Bootle Layby, next to the bin, but chucked on and over the dyke, broken glass was also evident, from the sheer volume thrown, it was inevitable that some glass would be broken, as it fell, around and into Thorntons field, also next to this was human waste, with 2 masks laid on top, which I assume the perpetrator used to wipe up with, (too graphic to show ) we have cleared it now, 3 sacks full including broken glass, plus 3 more sacks full of other rubbish, this was all collected from the two lay-bys the litter bin was full, but it has been emptied either today or yesterday.
Despite the dust bin being in place, we are still getting lots of rubbish being deliberately placed around the layby’s, it tends to be drivers leaving their lunch wrappers, and bottles, amongst other rubbish.
The Parish Council have consulted with residents and are now in the process of preparing an action plan and Community Plan which will be shared with residents for comments and approval. Usually this would be done via a public meeting, but whilst covid restrictions are in place this will be done via social media and the website. Please keep checking for further updates.
