British Sugar – Christmas opening

As we enter December we would like to advise our local parish councils of our operations over the Christmas period specifically around our opening hours for beet deliveries. As always we look to minimise impact on our neighbours and especially try and avoid opening for deliveries on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. This year this is made more difficult with the holiday falling on Monday and Tuesday which are normally high volume delivery days for us following lower deliveries over the weekend.  Having reviewed our delivery plans for the pre-Christmas week we believe we can still achieve our objective of not opening on Christmas and Boxing Day. Additionally on the Sunday (Christmas Eve) we plan to close our gates early at 14:00 instead of the normal time of 17:00. We will however open at 06:00 on Christmas Eve instead of the normal time of 07:30 to allow the hauliers to deliver their allocated loads within the shortened delivery day.

Do you need extra support during a power cut or do you know someone else that would need extra support? Our services are free to customers who need support.

Power cuts don’t happen very often but if the electricity network is damaged or develops a fault it’s our job to get your power back on. Our engineers will work around the clock 24/7 to restore your power as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you live in London, the East or South East of England, then being on our Priority Services Register will ensure you will receive extra support if you experience a power cut.

What help should I expect to get during a power cut?
✔ A priority number that you can call 24 hours a day
✔ A dedicated team who will contact you to keep you updated during a power cut
✔ We can put you in touch with an expert who can offer you advice on energy bills and energy saving tips if this is important to you
✔ Tailored support if needed such as home visits, hot meals, advice and keeping your friends and relatives updated
✔ In certain scenarios we may also offer a free hotel overnight and transport to the hotel

Who can register to receive extra support?
• Customers who rely on medical equipment
• Customers who are chronically ill
• Customers with a disability
• Customers who have dementia
• Customers who are blind or partially sighted
