It is sad to say that once again someone has attempted to access the defibrillator located by the chemist in Woodlands Road and in so doing has broken off the perspex cover that protects the keypad from the elements. I suspect that whoever did this was frightened off by the alarm and having reclipped one of the door fasteners to stop the noise, rapidly left the scene.

Needless to say, this equipment can be a life saver and if anyone is found to be responsible, they will be reported to the police.

Crime Prevention
Marking your property is a positive way to fight crime, it can act as a deterrent, it allows you to prove ownership and helps you to identify your property easily if it is offered for sale. Marking your property also provides a means for the police to identify stolen goods and return them to their owners.
There are a number of ways to mark your property including utilising visible markers such as permanent marker pens, waterproof paint, stencils, engraving and specialised overt marking kits which are available on the market.
You can also use invisible markers such as UV pens or specialised forensic kits such as Smartwater.
Smartwater have recently reduced their standard price for a home marking kit from £68 to £25 which is available to anyone.
