I have had a report from a resident in the central part of Heather Rd that a dog(s) has been allowed to foul in the area just outside their drive on three occasions in the last week. This is not the only occurrence in the village, and the Parish Council are regularly receiving complaints of such incidents. This appears to be worse during the winter months, particularly when it is dark or the weather inclement.

I know it is easier said than done, but if anyone should see this fouling taking place or they have any further information on the offenders, please phone the Community Wardens at Rugby Borough Council on 08000968000 or visit their website at the following link.

Just to make you aware of another scam that is going around and has been experienced by a number of villagers.

It is a telephone call from either BT or Talk Talk stating that your router is sending out a virus and needs to be checked out.

BT security has been contacted and they advise that they will never telephone people (unless it is a return call) and that we, the customer, should never pass any information on.

They have asked us to pass this message on through our community alerts and social media.

Most of us are probably savvy to this type of scam, but please advise your neighbours who may not be connected, particularly the more vulnerable in our community.
