Between 27th Feb and 11th March, theft of ride-on tractor lawnmower including 2 x padlocks to premises where it was stored.

9th March. 2 males in the area offering to tarmac drives. The informant felt they were more interested in vehicles and were acting suspicious. The offer was declined and the males went on their way. Police informed.

7th March. Informant reported finding 4 animal rights activists on private rural farm land. The group were confronted by land owner and complied with request to leave. At this point they have informed the owner that they were there to protest about the alleged badger cull. During their time in the area, minimal damage has been caused to a pheasant pen and squirrel feeder. Any incidents of similar nature should be reported immediately to police.

Company claiming to be “AJ HOME IMPROVEMENTS” have carried out roof maintenance work to a poor standard and charged the elderly homeowner an excessively large amount for the work carried out. After a price was agreed a further excessive amount has been charged. AVOID BEING SCAMMED! Trading Standards advice:

  • Always obtain 3 quotes before agreeing for work to be undertaken.
  • Never pay any money upfront, especially cash.
  • Never respond to flyers or door to door sales people. If in doubt JUST SAY NO and contact the police.
