Tomorrow, Friend Of The London Taxi Trade, Frances Wyhowska Skydives To Raise Funds For Normandy Trip

Tommorow, friend of the London Taxi Trade, Frances Wyhowska will be doing a skydive of 12000 feet, with the Red Devils, in aid of the The London Taxi Benevolent Association for War Disabled, to raise funds for next year's trip to Normandy 



If you would like to sponsor Frances, this is the link. 


http://ift.tt/2aqhXBa


Please use the  hastag #Frances


Any help, no mater how small, will be gratefully received


Another committee member, Graham Pike and two veterans are also jumping




Two WWII veterans, Ted Pieri (90) and Fred Glover (92) are undertaking a tandem skydive with the Red Devils on Thursday 25 August 2016 to raise funds for next year’s Taxi Charity D-Day trip to Normandy. 

Ted and Fred will be joined by Taxi Charity committee members Frances Wyhowska and Graham Pike.

Ted, who lives in Erith, Kent, joined the 1st Airborne division in 1943. He did his first parachute jump in 70 years in 2015, and enjoyed the experience so much that he’s willing to jump again to raise money for the charity.

Fred Glover was a member of 6th Airborne ‘A Company’ who were tasked with landing within the infamous Merville Gun Battery in 1944. This will be Fred’s first parachute jump since his time in Normandy.

Please watch this short video where London Taxi Driver Allan "Ossie" Osbourne,  talks about why he loves taking the veterans on these trips.

MILTON KEYNES TAXI CHECKS

Spot checks on city taxis revealed more than half the vehicles had defects so serious that they were not fit to be on the road, the Citizen can reveal.

The faults found included defective tyres, dodgy lights, leaking oil and even a loose passenger door.

The checks, carried out by police and council licensing officers last Wednesday, went under the code name of Operation Charlie.

Some 26 private hire vehicles and Hackney carriages were stopped as they drove about the roads of Milton Keynes.

Fourteen had a full mechanical examination at the council’s testing centre – and serious defects were found on all of them.

“They were immediately suspended from being used as private hire vehicles until the defects were rectified,” said a council spokesman.

One cab, licensed by South Northants District Council but driving in MK, was found to have 10 separate defects.

The council said the aim of the operation was to “proactively tackle” vehicle defects found among taxis in the city.

But it seems even police were surprised at the sheer volume of faults uncovered.

PS Simon Hills from the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are disappointed that the majority of private hire vehicles were carrying defects so serious the vehicles were suspended from being used in the private hire trade.

“It is vital that people have absolute confidence in the safety of private hire vehicles and Hackney taxis.”

Councillor Catriona Morris is chairman of the council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committees.

She said: “These routine council operations, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, are to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to Milton Keynes.”

PayPal's Neat Solution To The Credit Card Mandate : Unit Fitted In TX4... By Jim Thomas.


Last night at the KXTC Camley Street, Mike Smith showed me his newly fitted rear compartment PayPal cradle. Apparently once you have the contactless unit, the total cost of cradle, printer and all the fittings is around £219 plus VAT. 


The unit was fitted at MAM electrical, unit 9 Mitre Way W8 (opposite ComCab's office), where he was charged £84 inclusive of VAT. Mike said he was really impressed at the standard of workmanship and how helpful this company was. 

Best attribute of this fitment is that you can take the unit out at night to discourage theft. But also you can use the unit  should you wish, with any of the other CC clearance companies who use this model. As you don't have to sign a contract you can just use the system that suits you the best. PayPal, iZettle and CabApp currently have the lowest transaction charges around 2.75%.

Another bonus with this system is the rear view is not impaired in any way, unlike the larger CC machines that block the view between the rear headrests. 


Mike has accounts and units with both PayPal and iZettle, so if there's a problem with one, he can just replace it with the other. Unfortunately this setup has not been approved in either MetroCab or Vito Taxis. Another woeful mess from TfLTPH. 

Under 5 weeks to go to the deadline and they the whole CC situation is in still in chaos.

Who Said Demos Don't Work? : St Pancras, Finally Gets Double Yellow Lines, Double Kerb Chevrons.

Last night, under cover of darkness, Camden Council's roads and highways department painted the new double yellow lines including double chevrons on the kerbside at the St Pancras Station drop off. 


The council team turned up complete with warden, moved off all the illegally plying for hire minicabs and painted the promised double yellow lines. Amazingly, some minicabs were reluctant to move, some vehicles were parked with no driver present and so a removal truck was called for. 

After the job was successfully carried out, many minicabs were returning, so the truck stayed behind. Car drivers were informed if they didn't move off, they would be lifted and taken away by Camden Council. 


This new trial has come after months of serious negotiation on behalf of the trade, by the Mayfair Mob's ranks and highways team. St Pancras drop off was bought to the notice of the council after a 5 day demo was called by Dads Defending Daughters and the Mayfair Mob, heavily supported by the RMT and the drivers from all orgs who turned up en masse for the five days to support the action.

MILTON KEYNES CITY TAXIS SAFETY SPOT CHECK FAILURES

Taxi spot check in Milton Keynes found ‘majority’ had defects

10:55Thursday 04 February 2016
Spot checks on city taxis revealed more than half the vehicles had defects so serious that they were not fit to be on the road, the Citizen can reveal.
The faults found included defective tyres, dodgy lights, leaking oil and even a loose passenger door.
The checks, carried out by police and council licensing officers last Wednesday, went under the code name of Operation Charlie.
Some 26 private hire vehicles and Hackney carriages were stopped as they drove about the roads of Milton Keynes.
Fourteen had a full mechanical examination at the council’s testing centre – and serious defects were found on all of them.
“They were immediately suspended from being used as private hire vehicles until the defects were rectified,” said a council spokesman.
One cab, licensed by South Northants District Council but driving in MK, was found to have 10 separate defects.
The council said the aim of the operation was to “proactively tackle” vehicle defects found among taxis in the city.
But it seems even police were surprised at the sheer volume of faults uncovered.
PS Simon Hills from the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are disappointed that the majority of private hire vehicles were carrying defects so serious the vehicles were suspended from being used in the private hire trade.
“It is vital that people have absolute confidence in the safety of private hire vehicles and Hackney taxis.”
Councillor Catriona Morris is chairman of the council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committees.
She said: “These routine council operations, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, are to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to Milton Keynes.”

I wouldnt doubt it, if they were sharing and giving their cab to their un-licensed family members or friends to go out and earn and sit on the ranks
