This is The new website for Chester.
NewTownSaints.co.uk website is based in Newtown,
Chester: Heygarth Heights, Thackery Towers and Rowlands Heights, but also includes St Annes, St Oswalds and St Georges and surrounding areas.
We maintain the website and try to add fresh content daily or weekly.
Fuel Poverty Hits Residents!
Why do the residents in the 3 tower blocks: St Annes,
St Oswalds and St Georges have to suffer with hugely
expensive and outdated electric storage heating as the only means
of warmth in wintertime?
We are some of the poorest people not only in Chester, but in the country; the majority being either pensioners, or people on Income Support!
Why has Chester & District Housing Trust (C&DHT)
installed Gas central heating in Heygarth Heights, yet has no
apparent intention of doing the same work in the 'Saints'
I asked this same question of the Trust when I moved in, in February 2007 and was told "there is no gas over here". Oh really?
How is it then, that the residents in Wellington Place use gas cookers and have the luxury of gas heating? Wellington Place is overlooked by St. Georges and St Oswalds, and it would appear that someone from the Trust was telling me 'porkies'. It is not fair and not right, that we should be treated differently from other residents in similar circumstances. This is known as discrimination!!
On August 13th 2008, Dave
Soothill at C&DHT Property Services Said: "I am aware that
when the St Blocks were rewired, the storage heaters were upgraded
to the most energy efficient models available at the time, the
storage heaters currently in place have approximately 8 years
left on their life cycle."

Ooooh. . . More Edgy Stuff too:
In a report to the Scottish Office on the impact of CCTV, Jason Ditton, Director of the Scottish Centre for Criminology, argued that the claims of crime reduction [due to the camera surveillance] are little more than fantasy. "All (evaluations and statistics) we have seen so far are wholly unreliable"

"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not Omnipotent.
Is he able but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is God both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?"
