Christmas and New Year is a magical time of year. But that doesn't mean things don't and won't go wrong. Hopefully, you'll manage to avoid any major disasters. But, just incase, here is a useful list of numbers that you might need this festive season.


* Central Heating Breakdown

With the cold weather currently gripping Bolton and the rest of the UK, any problem with your central heating will have even more of an impact on your household. Don't let it be a problem.

HeatPlumb Solutions - 020 8776 0384

* Legal Services

Whilst most other services go to sleep during the festive period, the law is always active. If you find yourself in trouble at all, or require any legal help or advice, or maybe need to make a personal injury claim, don't wait until it is possibly too late.

Atkins Hope Solicitors - 020 8680 5018

Ormerods Solicitors - 020 8686 5000


* Security

Break-ins are a common occurence during the festive period due to a lot more value inside of most households. It's a sad fact, but it's true. There are always measures you can take before a break-in happens, or after, as well as providing security services for business premises when you're not there.

Flamingo Locksmiths - 020 8764 1918

J-Tech Systems - 0845 467 1863


* Injury

Injury can occur for a number of reasons over the festive period. The increase in the amount of alcohol is obviously going to contribute to that, but accidents will happen due to ice and the freezing temperatures, and the increased strain of this time of year.

Back in Shape Clinic - 020 8655 1664


* Death

Should the worst happen over Christmas and the New Year, you'll want all aspects of the funeral to be as easy as possible. Buffets by Design can take care of all your catering needs, and for after the event, Will & Probate company can take care of the estate for you.

* Car Trouble

Once again, the weather conditions could present a major problem, especially when it comes to your car. Ice and snow could see you damage the actual body of the car, whilst freezing temperatures could see the electrics or mechanics break. We've got you covered for all of that.

McCarthy Cars - 020 8454 7486

Saunders Auto Care - 020 3490 5920

Goldhawk MOT & Service Centre - 020 8686 3900


* Taxi Service
