Halloween is approaching and a supply of No Trick or Treating notices has been left in the village store for any residents that would like to display one.
Much as we appreciate that for some people trick or treat is seen as harmless farm ,there are members of the community who for their own reasons do not want to open their doors to strangers on cold ,dark nights and be offered the opportunity to hand over a treat or they will be tricked

  •  Maintain hedges and fences and keep gates locked to prevent unwanted visitors from entering your garden.
  •  Secure sheds and garages with suitable locks and consider fitting shed alarms and security lights to deter intruders.
  • Store ladders, Power tools and gardening equipment somewhere secure after use so they don’t get stolen or used to break into your home.
  • Any suspicious activity should be reported to Police on 101 if it is not of an urgent nature or 999 if police need to attend immediately.

    Not the best advert for Neighbourhood Watch when the person delivering the stickers etc leaves them hanging out of letter boxes, thereby informing any unwanted visitors that a property is empty!! Mine were left on top of the recycling bin, for reasons unknown, and two have blown away. Neighbour is away for long periods and hers were hanging out of her post box… needless to add I pushed them through.
