Attempted Burglaries and Burglary

It has been brought to my attention that in the last few weeks there have been a couple of attempted burglaries and a burglary where items were taken.

I just wanted to make people aware of this and to think about their home security.

Remember to check that your doors and windows are secure before you leave your home to go out.

If you have a house alarm, does it work?

If you are going away make sure that your house is secure, do you need to cancel the milk or papers etc, do you have someone checking your property whilst you are away? Will the lights be coming on and going off at timed intervals whilst you are away?

If you use social networking sites (such as facebook, twitter, bebo or myspace, etc) think carefully about what you are posting as your status or tweeting to your friends and followers. Maybe wait till you are back from your a day trip or holiday before posting about it!
"If you see individuals acting suspiciously, or see suspicious vehicles on your street, give the police a call on 0845 60 60 222 or 999 if there is a crime in progress. We'd rather have that call than run the risk of a crime being committed. If you can safely get a description of the person or a registration number of the vehicle, this can also be very helpful. Your information could be the last piece in the jigsaw." Source: Wolds & Weighton Streetbeat newsletter

There has been talk about setting up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme so if you haven't already shown your interest in joining the scheme then please let us know, so the village can organise a meeting and get the scheme set up. Just fill out the contact form if you are interested in joining Neighbourhood Watch Scheme or if you would like to help set up the scheme in the village.
