DOG FOULING

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.

TELEPHONE SCAM

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.

OAKDALE RD BURGLARY

For some reason, I am not getting any notifications from the police on incidents within the village. Myself and Paul Salisbury have had a meeting with representatives of the police and hope that our previous good communications relationship can be resurrected in the near future.  

In the meantime, I have been advised by one of our parish councillors that two elderly ladies living in Oakdale Road were burgled on Tuesday. 

They came home from shopping and in a rush to dash to the loo and get the washing in, they forgot to lock their back door.  One of the ladies suffers from dementia and on Wednesday she found that she could not find her handbag which she thinks she left on the kitchen table.  It therefore would appear that someone was watching them amble down the road and took advantage of the unlocked door and stole the handbag and a coat. 

The police have been informed and have visited them. 

This should really act as a reminder to everyone that everyone should check that access to their property remains secure and locked at all times when not in use. Yes, it may be inconvienient but at least it will help prevent crime, particularly from the opportunist thief which has been in evidence over the last twelve months or so.
