There are reports on Facebook from the last few days of people ‘visiting’ local properties at suspicious times.
Be alert for prowlers, burglars, thieves.
Lock up your stuff and keep an eye on neighbouring properties. Call Police if you see something odd or feel concerned. Talk to your neighbours too: building up good connections with the people around you is a good way to increase safety for all of us.
Before Christmas there were a couple of instances of thefts or attempted thefts in the village, luckily foiled by alert neighbours.
And please let the Ratepayers Association know of any incidents. Email the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org .
