Villagers affected by recent power cuts and the low voltage electricity supply could be in line for a rebate according to reports made to the Gazette.

A reader who has spoken with the power supplier EDF, has been informed that householders will be receiving a letter within the next 10 days and the company will be making a refund of £50 for the power cuts and the low voltage supply to those affected.

According to the information forwarded to us, the rebate will be made by EDF who are the fuel suppliers to this area, irrespective of to which provider residents pay their bills.

However, EDF have said in a statement that the £50 payment can be claimed by customers who have experienced four or more power cuts of more than 3 hours in a year.
