We have been very lucky over the last few weeks in avoiding the level of crime in other villages although straw bales were set alight on Cold Harbour Road requiring the fire brigade and police to attend. Two youths were in the vicinity but no arrests made. This is the second time this winter that fires have been started.

A worrying incident did occur when two men, who claimed to have broken down in their car, asked at a house for the post code, in order to direct repair vans. Whilst talking they took the chance to inspect the nearby vacant property. They ran away, then drove off when the householder became suspicious.
