We are moving!
On March 1st the Bobby Scheme is moving to Yaxley. Our new address will be Yaxley Police Station, 1 Queen Street, Yaxley, PE7 3JE.
We have had 4 very good years here at Sawtry but are looking forward to setting up in our new “home”.
I haven’t moved house for over 30 years and didn’t realise the amount of things you have to do – arranging for a removal company, contacting all the companies you work with, banks, insurance company, DVLA etc etc, arranging with BT to ensure telephone lines are in, changing all the publicity materials so they have the new address on, re -directing mail! The list goes on ……….
And that’s another thing – I didn’t realise how expensive it is to move – with BT, publicity materials, and the royal mail redirection service. It’s costing us £480 to redirect mail for 6 months!! They class us as a business, even though we are a charity, and because we have 2 trading names – The Cambridgeshire Police Shrievalty Trust and the Bobby Scheme – we have to pay double!
And the time it takes – to arrange all of the above and to sort and pack everything in boxes.
Hopefully we will not have to move again for a long time- I’m not sure we could afford it!!
I will keep you posted as we get closer to Moving Day!
