Facebook Pages -  Promoting Bedworth Lions Club on Social Media

To promote Bedworth Lions Club activities a Facebook account was raised to join in with Bedworth Forum & Bedworth Community pages. Sad to say it is was removed.
Why? Because of the abuse & the self appointed 'changers of our rules'.

We now have a nice fresh Facebook presence, that we hope will be of benefit to all the community.

In the big number change over 10 years ago Coventry became 024. Many people thought 02476.
O no it isn't, it never was 02476!  It is 024 76NN NNNN.
Now there are no longer enough 76 numbers so additionally it has become 024 77NN NNNN.
The problem is compounded by those who dial 0247677.......
The national code for Coventry area is 024 followed by the 'local' dialling prefixes either 76 or 77 then the remaining 6 digits.


Remember you only need the correct kit to listen to any targeted mobile phone. It seems that 9.99 to 1000 buys this technology from many a shop. If it can be coded it can be de-coded. Almost any mobile phone can be listened to, you do not need to be a celeb. or in the public eye.
Reportedly systems exist to trick your phone into 'thinking' it is talking to a legitimate cell in order that a hacker listens directly to a conversation.
Now lets see all the mobile phone companies deny this.


To offset some of Bedworth Lions Club carbon footprint, the webmasters office is partially powered by the sun.
Photo voltaic panels have been fitted to power lighting & computer peripherals. This should offset some of the energy used in producing the Lions Club Website

Water is also collected for use when tap water is not needed, floor washing,
loo flushing and other such basics.
