From Richard Goldsmith – Corton Denham Neighbourhood Watch:

As you are probably aware, there has been an explosion of Cyber Crime, email scams and telephone fraud, particularly since the beginning of the Covid pandemic. Very few people will have escaped these attempts to steal our money and even our identities.

We have a Neighbourhood Watch group in Corton Denham and I am the Coordinator of that group. I circulate email Bulletins periodically to distribute information I receive from various sources warning of current frauds, cyber crime and, occasionally, old fashioned, but still effective, thefts, burglaries and similar criminal activity. If you would like to receive these bulletins, but do not do so now, please email me with your name and address, at:- [email protected] and I will add you to the circulation list.

The latest 3 or 4 Bulletins can be read on the village website ( click here ) and follow the link to “See recent Neighbourhood Watch Alerts”. Those Bulletins already contain much useful information including links to Action Fraud and other agencies offering excellent advice on how to protect yourself from becoming a victim of the numerous fraud attempts we have to suffer.

From Doune at The Queens Arms – Update:

We are now taking lunch and supper bookings for Wednesday – Sunday.  The Pub Hub is now open too for coffees and pastries 8am – 12pm.

(01963 220317 or  [email protected]) .

From Cheryl at The Mitre Inn:

We have now reverted back to a chalk board menu and changing it on a regular basis. You can order most of the items as a take away but we are generally not in a position to provide delivery.

Please pre-book your table on [email protected] or 01963 220 271

Thank you once again

====================================

Please remember the Countryside Code:

‘Keep dogs on a lead at all times near farm animals – by law you’re obliged to keep your dog under control so they don’t disturb animals or wildlife.’ 

==============================================

Reminder – Dog Fouling:

A person in charge of a dog, whether they are the owner or not, must clean up after their dog has fouled in a public place. Failure to do so may lead to a fine or prosecution in court.

The SSDC advice to dog-walkers is always to carry ‘poo’ bags and dispose of bags in a dog or litter bin. Not disposing a ‘poo’ bag correctly is also a dog fouling and littering offence.
