Others 7

During the first three months of the year there have been 50 offences as detailed above.

The lighter nights are upon us and, hopefully, the warmer weather will follow. Time to remind you all about leaving windows open when you go out.

It is also time when the thieves will be on the look-out for who has purchased a new lawnmower, or some new garden ornaments.

Before you know it, we will be into the main summer holiday season as well. Remember to let your neighbours know when you are away so they can keep an eye out for you.

As always, it is you who will spot the strangers in the area. It is you that we rely upon to get the index numbers of strange vehicles. Just by merely looking at people lets them know that they have been seen, and this can act as a deterrent.

Road Traffic

This is an issue that is becoming a bit repetitive. Yes, you've guessed it, speeding, parking and general inconsiderate driving skills.

General Matters

It appears that the age of the youths that occasionally congregate on the green is getting younger.

It is all too easy to say that they are coming from elsewhere but this is not strictly true. Many of these are the sons and daughters of families living in the village.

It is not the job or responsibility of the police service, or your neighbours, to teach them how to behave towards others in a civilised society. That is a parental responsibility that does not end when they walk out of the door.

No, it is not an easy job. What I also find disappointing is the attitude of some that it couldn't possibly be their sons or daughters who are involved. Bad language, vandalism and generally bad behaviour, that affects other peoplesí lives, should not be tolerated.

Finally, the Neighbourhood Watch committee would like to give its thanks to all of those people who act as co-ordinators and deliver the newsletters, without your help it wouldn't work.
