There have been several break-ins in the village lately, be vigiliant and be careful.
There has been another day time burglary - just by the Plumbers Arms
Here is some advice from Rural South Watch...
The change to GMT makes it more likely that working householders will only return home after dark. Not deploying lights and radios on time switches is to leave a clear signal to drive-by thieves that the house is unoccupied and awaiting burglary. Once thieves get to your front door and there is no sign of occupation, the outcome is almost certain.
Householders generally set such time switches after they have been burgled; but there is no need to wait to be burgled before you install 'son et lumiere' in your house!
If you are at home during the day at the edge of a village, please support your absent neighbours by reporting all unsolicited callers and cruising vehicles to 101.
