A message from our PCSO:
Earlier this month there was a theft from a vehicle parked on a driveway overnight. The vehicle was locked and entry to it was forced. This crime is very unusual for the village but it highlights the need to not only be vigilant but not to leave valuables in the car overnight. I realise it is a nuisance but please ensure valuables including sat navs are removed from vehicles. Also please do not leave Christmas presents in the vehicle. This time of year attracts opportunist thieves who may ruin your Christmas. If you have vans please do not leave tools in them. I would also suggest that if you are out in hours of darkness you leave a light on at home. This way it looks like someone is in and makes your home less vulnerable. Also do not leave presents on show in your home that can be seen from the windows. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via the police non emergency 101 number. Hopefully by doing this we can all have a very happy and peaceful Christmas.

Here is some brief information about the campaign.
By Choosing Well -
- You get the right care, first time
- You will often be treated more quickly than at A&E
- It helps free up the emergency departments to treat people with life threatening conditions.
There are lots of different ways people can access the right NHS service and make sure they get the right treatment, at the right time and a place that is convenient for them. By choosing well you will get the right treatment and help busy NHS services care for the people who really need them.
