Scam calls from "Microsoft Technical" have been reported to the Parish Council by one of our Councillors.  Please do not respond to any requests they may ask of you regarding your computer equipment, they are trying to hack into your details.  Please report immediately to 101.  Apparently they were not wise enough to withhold their number on this occasion !

 

For information there have had reports of “Nottingham Knockers "  Operating in the area again.

These are con merchants who basically give a hard luck story , try to sell trivia like dusters on the door step and meanwhile they are casing your home with a view to assessing whether it’s worth breaking in.

The police asked that instances are reported to them as they work in groups.

If you have any concerns please let the neighbourhood police team know.

 Beware Of Vehicle Crime In Your Area

________________________________________
We have received increased reports lately of thefts from vehicles in the area.

Never leave valuable possessions such as handbags, laptops, phones or sat navs on show inside a vehicle. This makes it much more likely to be targeted by thieves. Even items of little value, such as shopping bags and clothing, may tempt a potential thief to break into the vehicle to see whether they contain anything worth stealing. Keep your possessions out of view, or take them with you.
Always lock your car, wind up the windows and close the sunroof, even if you’re only leaving it for a few minutes. You should also double check it’s locked before leaving. It only takes a few seconds for your valuables to be stolen from an unlocked car.
For extra security:
•fit a car alarm
•use a steering wheel lock
•get an immobiliser, this stops the engine from starting if the car is being stolen
•always park your car in well-lit areas in full public view
•look for police approved car parks with the Park Mark logo
•when in stationary in traffic, keep your doors locked and windows up
•take your sat nav with you and wipe away any marks left by the suction pads
•don't leave items in the glove compartment
•if you have a garage, use it!

We would also ask residents to be vigilant in keeping an eye out for unusual activity in your street including vehicles and people that may look out of place and report it on 101 as soon as possible or 999 if you suspect that a crime is taking place at that moment.

Alternatively, if you have information but wish to remain anonymous, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or online by visiting www.crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court

Many thanks
