Delighted to see this update from the YMCA Green Shoots nursery in Studley Green. The charity was awarded a grant from our Stronger Communities Fund to help block pave a gravelled area of the garden, opening it up for more children to use. The paved areas provide a smooth surface and an area for those who need smaller, quieter spaces to play in. ... See MoreSee Less

Many boilers will need to have their system pressure topped up with water at some stage. To check if your boiler needs to be topped up, locate the pressure gauge on the front of the system. If the dial is too low and is in the red, then you will need to repressurise it. If your boiler's pressure is too low, it can prevent the system from heating up efficiently, which could lead to a loss of hot water. If your boiler's pressure is too high, you can request an appointment for our repairs team to come out to your home: ecs.page.link/bbvqK ... See MoreSee Less

Lol, I topped my pressure up on my boiler after being shown.. but what the engineer forgot to mention is the pressure increases when heating is on anyway, so don't pressurise when off as like me my pressure was over 4 and I needed an emergency call out . It is not as easy as just being shown.
