Old Copies or Read Copies: Please do not throw out but give to neighbours or friends. But is good as a reference for future use.

 

INCIDENCES: The continued message is take care of your property. Lock your vehicles, remove easily removed valuables like outboard motors, fuel cans, electric garden tools, mowers etc and store in a safe place. One burglary was done because during the day the garage door had been left wide open with no owner about in the vicinity. Later found their fence had been graffitied by paint stolen from the own garage. Be on the look out if you see a group of young people moving from one street to the next and you feel they may cause a problem or if a party has people all out in the street causing mayhem.  Ring  111.
