Sutton reveals some of its residents most bizarre enquiries
A motorist who discovered her car was in a different parking spot when she returned from a shopping trip rang her local council to ask if the car park was haunted.

The query was just one of a number of bizarre phone calls made by members of the public to Sutton Council in south London. Other questions included “how long can I safely store ginger powder for?” and “can I put a dead fox in my recycling bin?”

The ghostly goings-on came to light when the woman called the council’s environmental contact centre to say her car had moved “of its own accord”.

She asked if the car park, in Brighton Road, Sutton, was haunted and wondered if a ghost had been responsible.

The truth, however, was rather less supernatural. Council officials reviewed CCTV footage and found the car had gently rolled into a different parking bay after the driver had failed to apply her handbrake properly.

Other ‘unusual’ calls included:

Do you know where I could get an old bath that I could fill with custard for a fundraising event?


Can I park a double decker bus in my front garden?


What time is Buckingham Palace open today?


My TV is broken



And, should I get broadband?



The council is encouraging people to save time and money by using its internet services.

Residents are being offered help in choosing handymen to do small repairs around their home.

The ‘Handyperson Service’ offers the services of thoroughly vetted tradesmen working in Sutton.

Hospices confirm merger


The Boards of Shooting Star based in Hampton and CHASE in Guildford have decided to proceed with their proposed merger. The decision is subject to obtaining the necessary legal and regulatory consents, which they hope will be sometime before the end of the year.

In the last few months, they have undertaken detailed work and had discussions with the families they support, staff, volunteers and supporters; and now both charities believe more firmly than ever that by coming together in this way they can provide a more flexible and sustainable service.

When the merger happens, the name of the new organisation will be Shooting Star CHASE. David King, the current Chief Executive of CHASE, will be appointed Chief Executive of the new organisation.

It costs a combined total of over six million pounds a year to keep both sites open and running. Only a small Government grant is received. It's hoped this will be boosted by the merger.

The team told Jackie News;

This is very exciting news for Shooting Star and CHASE. The merger means we can continue to keep our promise to offer the best service possible now and into the future.

We understand this latest development may raise some questions, so we have set up a dedicated e-mail address for you to send these to [email protected] and we will respond as soon as we can.
