Neighbourhood watch update

At the time of writing there was one reported crime in our area during the last period: Theft near Whiley Close.

The police are reminding residents to lock their cars even if they are only left unattended for a few minutes. Do not leave your cars unattended when you are running them to defrost the windows. The police are also advising people to lock their cycles when not in use.

As well as keeping houses secure the police are asking farmers to be extra careful keeping, not only their house secure at all times, but also paying particular attention to equipment and tools on the farm.

Please observe the speed limit in the 20 mph zone that is in place throughout most of the village; if you keep to it then strangers driving through our village are more likely to observe it as well.

News, Rugby Borough

Update from Rugby Borough Council

Residents and businesses in Rugby are being reassured that Rugby Borough Council is implementing its contingency plans for a third lockdown as Covid-19 restrictions tighten once again.

Cllr Seb Lowe, Leader of Rugby Borough Council said: “The first lockdown was difficult for many of our residents and businesses, but it also showed that our communities can pull together to do what is right for Rugby.

“Rugby Borough Council is prepared for this third lockdown and will lead our communities through it, just as we continue to run the services that they rely on.

“We are supporting the new rapid test centre that opens this week, and also supporting the vaccination effort being delivered by GPs across the borough.

“And, we continue to distribute financial support to businesses as these funds become available from the government.

“We know that residents who are clinically extremely vulnerable will be anxious at this time and we have remained in touch with these residents who have needed our support. We remain ready and willing to help our most vulnerable residents should they need us.

“A further lockdown period brings with it another period of uncertainty. However, if we all follow the guidelines and remember to wash our hands regularly, wear a face covering in enclosed spaces and keep apart from people we don’t live with, we can reduce the rate of infection and protect NHS services that are now under pressure.

“With the vaccine rollout now starting to accelerate, there is hope that things can get back to normal soon.”

Residents who need urgent support and who do not have friends, family, neighbours or community groups who can help can contact the council on (01788) 533 533.

Neighbourhood Watch update

At the time of writing there were three reported crimes in our area during the last period: Violent Crime in North Road, Public Disorder in South Road and Burglary in Elms Paddock.

With cold weather arriving, the police have advised motorists not to leave their car running to defrost it while they go back inside the house. This is an opportunity for criminals to take the contents of the car or even to take the car itself.

The police are reminding residents to leave a light on somewhere in the house when the house is left unoccupied in the dark evenings. A dark house can be a message to criminals that there is no one at home.
