My plan is to use both the Barrowden & Wakerley Magazine and the village email to keep the residents of the two villages up to date with news, tips on security and any other information. This will come from the local police, you and also from the Seaton and Harringworth Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators.
So let’s start with the basics. The advice we have from Leicestershire & Rutland Police regarding witnessing a crime or a suspicious event in either of the villages is as follows:
1. If a crime is in progress or life is in danger, then telephone 999.
2. To report a crime that has already happened and any other incidents or concerns where you do not require an emergency response, then call 101.
3. Let me know either by calling me on 01572 747374 (please leave your name and number if I cannot get to the phone) or Contact me here by email
These simple measures will help the local police make decisions about any applicable actions and allow me to keep you informed of any problems of which you should be aware.
I have a quantity of UV marker pens that are ideal for post-coding bikes, lawn mowers, skate boards etc. Just let me know if you want one and I’ll drop it round.
