Neighbourhood Watch

A reminder from the village Neighbourhood Watch – please remain vigilent both during the longer hours of darkness and during daylight and report any suspicious activity. In recent weeks there have been distraction burglaries in other villages during the daytime, and shed burglaries at night also feature. One local resident has reported suspicious activity by a couple of men in a landrover shining a red laser light across fields in the village, and we understand there have been attempted break-ins at one local Dry Drayton business. If you are interested in the work of Neighbourhood Watch nationally you can read their latest newsletter here: https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/NHW-Our-News-December-2017-Edition.pdf
