It is quite noticeable that there are many dog owners in the village who are not picking up after their dog. Whilst other dog owners may tolerate this there are many in the village who do not own a dog and have less sympathy for the unhealthy mess that is created. Smaller children in particular are at risk from the diseases that can be spread by contact. Please can you pick up after your dog, not once in a while, but always. It will be greatly appreciated and all the village will benefit.

Perhaps you have already been made aware, but by 2020, the UK Government plans to have all homes and businesses installed with smart meters through their national rollout that is currently in progress. That said, research shows that a large portion of the population are still not aware of this.
As such, in conjunction with the smart meter authorities nationwide, we are working to ensure that all local councils have all the up to date information available for their citizens, giving the nation a smoother transition and more informed idea of their options.

Why contact Action Fraud?
Sometimes people choose not to report fraud because they are embarrassed that they fell for a scam.
Remember that fraud is a crime and that fraudsters will constantly reinvent themselves to find new ways of tricking people. Anyone could be a victim.
Some people also think that fraud is a victimless crime, or that it's not as serious as other crimes. This is not true. Fraudsters are often part of serious organised criminal gangs, who use the money to fund other crimes such as human trafficking, illegal firearms trade and terrorism.
Fraudsters rely on silence. We can beat fraud if we talk.
Top 5 tips to prevent fraud
1. Do not give any personal information (name, address, bank details, email or phone number) to organisations or people before verifying their credentials.
2. Many frauds start with an email. Remember that banks and financial institutions will not send you an email asking you to click on a link and confirm your bank details. Always question whether an email could be bogus.
3. Destroy and preferably shred receipts with your card details on and post with your name and address on. Identity fraudsters don't need much information in order to be able to clone your identity.
4. If you have been a victim of fraud, be aware of fraud recovery fraud. This is when fraudsters pretend to be a lawyer or a law enforcement officer and tell you they can help you recover the money you've already lost.
5. To report fraud or if you need advice, visit Action Fraud's website.
