    For those of you who use the road from Hampton Beech to Rowley onwards the sign that went up saying the road would close on 10th October was a mistake. Work was scheduled by Western Power for then but has been moved to January!

    They forgot to tell the traffic Management company.

    When I get formal notification of the January works I will let you all know.

    SCAM ALERTS

    A number of sophisticated scam telephone calls, texts, and emails are doing the rounds again including the offer of tax refunds from HMRC, calls related to ebay and amazon prime, and supposed NHS calls about track and trace contacts who ask for a fee for the service. Others claim to be from HM Courts and Tribunal Service asking for payment of a penalty charge notice.

    I am having a fair number of reports of petty theft and criminal damage coming over recent weeks. Please ring 101 to report these to the police. Criminals should not be allowed to get away with this sort of behaviour even in a time of crisis.

    Regards

    Wildlife crime includes activities such as killing or capturing or destroying the habitat of any protected species, egg theft, taking protected plants, trade in endangered species, hare coursing, poaching, the persecution of badgers, birds, and bats, and the poisoning and shooting of birds.
    Hare Coursing
    Unfortunately, at this time of year hare coursing on fields of stubble is not uncommon and there have already been reports of "fox cubbing" in the local area. The landowner "giving permission" does not make the activity legal.
    Suspected wildlife crime should be reported to the local police using 101 or if you witness wildlife crime by dialing 999. Further information can be found at
