Local Crime Update 17/12/2021

Dear Residents

Please find below the crime record for the period from 1st to 17th December.

Unfortunately we’ve been hit by a few burglaries recently.  As it’s nearly Christmas just a reminder not to leave packaging for expensive gifts on display in your front garden.  Ensure they are well hidden in your recycling bin.

This is my first day at work since 02/12/21 so I haven’t got much else to add.

I’d like to finish by wishing you all a Merry Christmas.

Thank you as always for your help and support.

Kind Regards
