Little Waitrose, East Putney, Grand Opening tomorrow.

Little Waitrose Sign

The Leader of Wandsworth Borough Council, Councillor Ravi Govindia will officially open our new local Little Waitrose in East Putney at 7am on Tuesday.

The convenience store will be the first in the borough of Wandsworth, adjacent to the East Putney tube station and part of the new Langham Square development. The store will be open Monday to Sunday from 7am – 10pm.

In December Waitrose announced it received 445 applications for the 49 jobs created by the branch.

Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council, said: “I’m delighted to open Wandsworth’s first Waitrose convenience store here at Langham Square. The shop will be a valuable addition to East Putney and brings another 40 new jobs to our borough. Not long ago this site was home to an outdated and largely empty office building, but has now been utterly transformed. It’s an attractive, high quality development that sets a high standard for others to follow on Upper Richmond Road.”

Julia Maguire, Branch Manager at the new Waitrose in East Putney, said: “Upper Richmond Road is an extremely vibrant location and we are confident that a Waitrose store will be a good addition to the excellent variety of shops already here. We are keen to play our part in attracting even more shoppers to the area.”

Each little Waitrose branch gives away £500 every month to local charities and projects through its Community Matters scheme and Partners donate 100 hours every year to helping local causes through our Partner Volunteering scheme.

Phone call Scam…

Phone Scam
Please pass this information onto others (especially the vulnerable)…
“Received a phone call from BT, informing me that he was disconnecting me because of an unpaid bill.. He demanded payment immediately of £31.00 or it would be £ 118.00 to re-connect at a later date. The guy wasn’t even fazed when I told him I was with Virgin Media, allegedly VM have to pay BT a percentage for line rental! I asked the guy’s name – he gave me the very ‘English’ John Peacock with a very ‘African’ accent – & phone number -0800 0800 152. Obviously the fellow realized I didn’t believe his story, so offered to demonstrate that he was from BT. I asked how & he told me to hang up & try phoning someone – he would disconnect my phone to prevent this. AND HE DID !! My phone was dead – no engaged tone, nothing – until he phoned me again. Very pleased with himself, he asked if that was enough proof that he was with BT. I asked how the payment was to be made & he said credit card, there & then. I said that I didn’t know how he’d done it, but I had absolutely no intention of paying him, I didn’t believe his name or that he worked for BT. He hung up. I dialed 1471 -number withheld I phoned his fictitious 0800 number – not recognized. So I phoned the police to let them know. I wasn’t the first! It’s only just started apparently, but it is escalating. Their advice was to let as many people as possible know of this scam. The fact that the phone does go off would probably convince some people it’s real, so please make as many friends & family aware of this. How is it done? This is good but not that clever. He gave the wrong number – it should have been 0800 800 152 which takes you through to BT Business. The cutting off of the line is very simple, he stays on the line with the mute button on and you can’t dial out – but he can hear you trying. (This is because the person who initiates a call is the one to terminate it). When you stop trying he cuts off and immediately calls back. You could almost be convinced! The sad thing is that it is so simple that it will certainly fool many. By the way this is not about getting the cash as this would not get past merchant services – it is all about getting the credit card details which include the security number, to be used for larger purchases.” **Please Copy And Paste**.

Donations for the homeless wanted…

The West London Churches Homeless Concern opened their doors to the homeless last Monday. Each night of the week is allocated to a different Church and they do this for 14 weeks. Monday’s is the turn of St Mary’s, at Putney Bridge. This is a wonderful organisation which will help the homeless have a roof over their heads during the coldest time of the year. The Putney Society were told ”The most …useful thing for our guests are warm clothes, jumpers, coats, thick socks etc also toiletries, tooth paste, shampoo, tooth brushes, deodorant etc.” Those able and willing to make donations of the above should take them down to St Mary’s.  The need is mainly for men’s clothes although a few warm women’s outer garments would be welcome.

Do any Schubert Road residents have any old jumpers, coats or thick socks they are able to donate?  If you’re on Putney High Street why not buy some extra toiletries and pop down to the church and donate them…
