Staff from Golden Gates Housing Trust, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Warrington public health team help residents swap to healthier and safer frying methods

First published in News

A CHIP pan amnesty saw residents hand in their dangerous open fryers for safer and healthier versions.


The trade off organised by Golden Gates Housing Trust (GGHT) and backed by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and Warrington’s public health team saw homes in Bewsey, Dallam, Orford and Longford targeted.


Over two days more than 60 new healthier air fryers and deep fat fryers were swapped and given out.


GGHT chairman Roy Smith said: “Here at GGHT we are committed to making our homes safer and healthier. By residents swapping their old unsafe chip pan for a new deep fat fryer or air fryer is one way we are achieving this.”

Why? Is it because you think people in social housing would rather get money for a few pints rather than consider safety for themselves and their families?

I wouls have said the same about Higher Walton, Lymm, Penketh etc if the scheme had taken place there. Some poeole are so inclined to want to make money from any source for what ever they want tp purchase with the proceedes. The same thing happens with food from the Foodbanks and goods from other benevolent organisations.

The number of people fiddling foodbanks (including Daily Mail journalists who should be prosecuted under the Theft act and/or for fraud) is close to zero - whatever the apologists for Iain Duncan Smith and the other inhumane tory gits may say.

1st. Point: My comment is from actual incidents that i have witnesses and taken steps in order to address.

2nd. point: The NHS treatment I now receive is not actually Free as you suggest, just free at the point of need but it was paid for out my and many others National Insurance contributions.

Food Banks are now taking the unnecessary applications issue far more seriously than in the past. The Warrington food bank are gathering information currently as it is draining their resources so much so that there is now a black list of people making excessive voucher application from several sources in Warrington so yous guestimate of near zero could in fact be as much as 33%.

And the food banks survive from donations from taxpayers also so SAC what is the difference? Let me see it's ok for you to access freebies but it's not ok for any one else especially if you live in a deprived area or are on benefits. No doubt if you say the treatment you are on is correct, I would imagine you too are accessing benefits as you would be in no fit state to work. Yes that would come out of my NI contributions also!

Some people might choose to spend their money on whatever they want, if someone offered me a free fryer - or free food id take it. Free up my cash for something else, you can't blame em. The fire brigade probably know that every deep fat fryer they remove there will be less chance of a house fire. probably comes out of fire prevention budget.
Now as for food banks, We keep hearing about all these people who can't afford to feed themselves or their kids. Lets face it almost everyone has enough money for basic food, what they mean is they can't afford it as well as fags, dog grooming, tattoos, large screen tv, smart phone, and weed.

The large part of food donated to the food banks comes from very generous sponsorship from the retail sector and the general public hadley donate anything in comparison, My dear there are many more people who pay faithfully their NI contributions, including myself I am also thrifty, I don't have a colour TV, a smart phone, an I-pad. I also make fresh soup from vegetable peelings and homemade stock, bread and butter pudding from two day old bread, make my own jam and started a pension from the day I started to work. A simple but but fulfilling realy.

Must be a very boring life living in a shack in the woods with your Blue Peter badge yawn! Get a grip woman and a life spend that pension who you saving it for? Hate people with money who don't spend it and live like a tramp and die rich. Such a waste. Never mind I hope you enjoy your green mouldy bread and butter pudding.
