Please Be Vigilant

The Parish Council have received information regarding a few break-ins, dog-nappings and burglaries in the surrounding area, together with somebody attempting to sell allegedly undelivered items from a white van parked in the village to a Parishioner.  As the Christmas season approaches please continue to be vigilant and report any concerns to the Police.

National Trading Standards Scam Team

Please see the article in the Village Magazine regarding unwanted phone calls. It is noted that this article may be of particular interest to those who are living with dementia. We are looking into whether we might be able to arrange for a member of the Scam Team to speak at a future Parish Council meeting.
