Weekly crime summary 9th to 15th October 2013
There is a start to what might become a trend in North Norfolk and Broadland. A skimming device was found on the cash machine at one of our major supermarkets last Sunday. On Monday in Cromer we had another one discovered at the HSBC cash machine in the town and it may have been on the machine all weekend. Please be cautious and alert when using ATM’S and if it doesn’t look or feel right then call us and we’ll investigate.
As ever, make life difficult for criminals by thinking about your security and that of your property. Call us on 101 if you are aware of criminal activity, or 999 if you see a crime happening now.
Superintendent Stuart Gunn
The minutes for the latest meeting of the Parish Council are HERE.
Norman Lamb will be opposite the Bluebell at 11:55 on Thursday 29th August. Parishioners are invited to come along and meet their MP.
Update: Norman Lamb was recalled to Parliament for the debate on Syria. A Member of Norman's office visited in order to record questions etc for Norman to handle later. Mary Lamb will also be attending and will obviously also be able
to receive messages.
Marie Strong was also present.
During the past couple of weeks we have had several sheds broken into in allotments and gardens in North Norfolk, especially around Sheringham, Cromer areas.
The Police Direct bulletin for 07/08/13 includes this advice: We have seen an increase in walk in/reach through type thefts across the Broadland area but they are just as probable to occur across the North Norfolk too.
These types of offences are more likely committed by the opportunist thief. Although the warm weather spell encourages us to open all the windows, leave the doors open and spend time in the garden, we should be mindful of the vulnerability of the front access of our homes.
Just small steps can prevent these intrusive incidents, if you are in the garden make sure the front of the house is secure by closing windows and locking access doors. If you leave your home for any length of time make sure all windows and doors are secure. An insecure window illustrates an open invitation to an opportunist thief to help themselves at your expense.

We have received a timetable for the Mobile Library and this can be seen on the new page in the Village section.
PCSO Phil Berkeley is no longer based at Wells and has moved on to sunnier climes at Cromer. We now have with us PCSO Keith Clarke, who brings with him several years of experience in Fakenham and Skegness.
We welcome Keith as the Parish Liaison Officer.
Marie Strong and Norman Lamb expect to be canvassing in Langham on Friday 12th April.
