what is not not theirs.

So ....... it is theirs?

That's me being sloppy and just copying and pasting the neighbourhood watch message as it is when it arrives. I sometimes don't have the time to go over their copy and correct. But I will go back in and fix. Thanks for pointing it out. (They also have an interesting way of using a full stop at the beginning of a sentence rather than at the end. I'll fix that while I am at it.   ;)

Neighbourhood Watch and Local Crime / Welham Green car break ins - police warning

From neighbourhood watch...

Dear Watch Member,

We have had several thefts and attempted thefts from motor vehicles over the last week within the area of Welham Green. If anyone has seen or heard anything do not hesitate to contact me. Please make sure you do not leave anything on display and take any valuables out of your cars. Make sure that your vehicle is locked when you leave it with the windows up and secure. Do not ignore car alarms. If you hear one, take a peek it may stop another thief taking what is not theirs.

Regards,
Samantha Griffin
Police Community Support Officer

Getting this depth of field with anything else would be very tricky - and require lugging 4-5Kg of equipment!

Thanks Webman, more luck than judgement, but you are right, my digital SLR sits on the shelf now apart from days when I decide to specifically head off to take pictures. I find the phone is much better for taking shots that don't interrupt the walk - and is easier to carry. Phone camera data for the shot below.

What lovely pictures! I particularly like the first one - great composition and subject. Phones are ideal for close-ups and much more portable than normal cameras. Getting this depth of field with anything else would be very tricky - and require lugging 4-5Kg of equipment!

Spotted these today and took a few pictures with my phone. Click on any image to reveal a bigger version and click on again for the full size. These were not taken locally, but I am sure our woods are full of great specimens. Please share any fungi pictures.

Unfortunately where the vehicle collided with the lampost, this we are being told has damaged other underground pipework which is being assessed by utility.

We are unsure of the impact if any on local residents at this stage.

The works currently under way at the Pine Grove/GWR junction are to re-mediate a long standing problem with both foul and rainwater pipes, This will hopefully resolve the poor road surface adjacent as this was undermining the sub base beneath the road surface causing the carriageway to break up.
