I’d like to start my first Chad column of the year by wishing everyone a very happy New Year. I’ve decided that my New Year’s resolution is to never take no for an answer.
It worked in getting our walk-in-centre back, it worked when the Post Office were reluctant to put a temporary post office in the precinct in Kirkby and I have to say it worked for Peter Jankiwskj from Huthwaite who I was reading about in the Chad over Christmas.
Peter got his money back after complaining to furniture store SCS after his new sofa fell apart within weeks. SCS initially offered Peter a 50 per cent refund which he rightly turned down. Well done to Peter for standing his ground and good work from the Chad once again for taking up the case. When people feel they have been treated unfairly it’s important that they stand up and say so. Last week, a mum from Sutton got in touch with me to tell me how angry she was with the recent changes to child benefit.
