Police Advice from our Crime Beat Manager, Marc Jackson:
During the summer months, more people tend to venture out and about to enjoy the local country side and good weather. Please can I remind residents to ensure that when they attend local beauty spots, such as Nightingale Woods, that they ensure their vehicle is secured and no valuables are left on view.
We tend to see a slight increase in thefts from motor vehicles during the next few months. If anyone sees individuals or vehicles acting suspiciously around beauty spot car parks, please contact Wiltshire Police on 0845 408 7000.
Information from our Police Community Support Officer, Juliet Evans:
PCSO Juliet Evans will be attending the Meeting Point coffee morning at the Village Hall on 13th August between 11.00-12.00, please come and see me if you would like to discuss any police matters.
Also I am currently arranging with the Swindon Community Safety Team, for the Swindon Community Safety Bus to come to the village in mid August. This will promote safer Swindon and local areas, offering advice on various safety topics. I am also planning to do bike marking. Further details will be posted on the web site when this is confirmed.
