|A Sad Badger|
It came to my attention the Council has discontinued supporting the subsidised handyman small repairs services, called 'Staying Put'. Repairs outside of the TMO's responsibility or too small to ask a professional tradesman to attend, at a certain price.
Many elderly people, on benefits or not, availed themselves of these services, to replace washers, fix curtains, repair a chair and such like.
Paying a fixed hourly rate of £12, plus the cost of materials, I and many others were very happy with this service.
Now, we have no choice, but engage a 'professional' tradesman, at a minimum hourly rate.
Yet, RBKC keeps sponsoring vanity projects, the musically awful Holland Park Opera, Noor Festival and other such ego satisfying events.
Another little meddling by our ghastly Stella, who must have been complicit with the withdrawal, as it may be considered as an auxiliary to adult social care.
