Please be aware of ‘Rogue Traders’. There have been recent incident(s) reported on the WRE area regarding ‘rogue traders’. We advise that you contact a legitimate company if you require any building and/or maintenance work to be done. Two males were reported to have been given money to conduct some maintenance work but made off shortly after receiving payment, no work was carried out. DO NOT give any money before completion of work unless going through a legitimate company/business with the appropriate agreement(s) in place. If you are suspicious of any person(s) knocking doors etc, please do not hesitate to dial 101 and report them. If you feel at risk/harm in anyway, do not hesitate to dial 999.

There have been a high number of power line cable thefts in the area over the last month. Please report any suspicious activity to Warwickshire Police Force by either dialling 101 or 01926 41500 and opting for Crimedesk, please dial 999 at the time of theft, should the theft be being witnessed. Since the last newsletter was published/distributed, there have been four incidents of power line cable theft reported on the WRE area. In the location(s) of Furzen Hill, Hunningham, Hunningham Hill and Stareton. This has resulted in temporary loss of power to residential and/or business premises in the locality where the theft has occurred. Due to the cost of repair and loss of power supply to properties occurring due to such thefts, we would like to ask that you remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity regarding this type of incident. Please inform us ASAP. You wouldn’t want loss of power to your property.
