We live in a village where the general feeling is that we are safe and secure. Jill Galloway's excellent work on Neighbourhood Watch provides us with updates on suspicious activities in the surrounding areas.
They seem distant and rarely applicable to what transires to our complacent community.
A range of thefts and break-ins have served to illustrate that we and our village are vulnerable. Recently a number of outbuildings and vehicles have been ransacked for tools, heavy garden equipment and mountain bikes. At the moment the main victims live on the north facing side of the village where access from the Carlton Road has provided a route for the thieves.
We are well advised to not only secure our outbuildings but to keep a neighbourly eye out for others.
