  • The BIg Knit 2016-17

    The Big Knit is back! Every time a bottle of Innocent Smoothie wearing a little knitted hat sells  25p comes to us. This will go towards keeping the older people in Dacorum warm and well over winter.

    Whether you are a beginner or an expert there are patterns for you here. For inspiration have a look at the amazing hats in the Big Knit's hall of fame.

    Hats can be dropped off to our office in Half Moon Yard or send then to us in the post.

  • Staying Safe - Avoiding Scams

    There are plenty of situations in which you can act in good faith but find you’ve come off worse from a transaction. The word ‘scam’ can be used to describe anything from criminal fraud to sharp, but legal, selling practices designed to cheat someone.

    Fraudsters are constantly finding new ways to fool people and online scams are evolving all the time.

    This guide Avoiding Scams explains all the different ways (online and offline) you can be contacted, some of the more common scams and what you can do if you fall victim to one.
