Scam SMS text about Covid
11 January 2021
We have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the new vaccine and to click on the link in the text message. The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.
The details asked for: Name, Address, Date of birth, Proof of address, Card payment details
With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the roll out to so many people.
NOBODY WILL BE CONTACTED TO HAVE A VACCINATION AT HOME

NOTICE CIRCULATED BY COPELAND COMMUNITY SERVICES
Bolton NHS Foundation Trust reported that some patients in their area have received phone calls to say they will receive their Covid vaccinations at home and they will be coming to their address on a certain time/date to do this. In some cases there is also a request for a fee. This is a scam and we are asking people to be vigilant during the coming weeks and share with friends, neighbours or family who may be at risk and targeted.

EXPANSION OF MWPC WEBSITE
13 December 2020
As many people will know, our area will see a number of changes in the near future which represent potential opportunities for and also threats to our community. These could come in the form of changes to lifestyles and the landscape along with tourism, job supply, local government and the environmental agenda.
Representatives of MWPC are currently developing our own, community-led approach to these issues as well as being fully engaged with many external bodies to represent the interests of the parish. With so many matters either already on the table or about to be launched, a number of which appear to have conflicting agendas and long-lasting effects on our community, it’s vital that our local voice is heard to the best of our ability.
MWPC are working hard on behalf of the Parish and would welcome input from residents to help us form our responses to these and other issues and once the pertaining Covid restrictions allow we hope that more community interaction will be possible but until then please use the other means available to contact the council, all of which are shown on the website.
Here you can find additional information to cover these issues and the council’s approach where relevant. Official correspondence must be made via the Clerk but you can contact any council members to find out more about the work MWPC is doing and to point you in the direction of someone or something that might help.
