Chorley housing group appeals for engine owners to come forward
A housing group has been left with an unusual problem, a boat engine and a garage full of kit whose owner it cannot trace.
The boat engine, made by Mercury, has been left in a Chorley Community Housing (CCH) garage, along with a cement mixer, tool boxes, a baby’s cot and a multitude of other items.
CCH is hoping the owner of these items will claim them.
Chris Richardson, community engagement manager at CCH, said: “The boat engine and cement mixer have been left in one of our garages in Euxton.
“No rent has been paid on the garage for quite some time and we have a new tenant waiting to make use of it.
“We are appealing for the owner of these items claim them.”
The items would suggest the owner is keen on DIY or has worked in the building trade.
Chris added: “We’ve made number of enquiries without any success and if we are unable to trace the owner within the next 28 days we will have no option but to dispose of the items”
The owner is asked to contact CCH on 01257 244 800.
Any potential claimants will need to provide proof of ownership.
