Warwickshire Police have reported a number of village post boxes stolen or damaged presumably with the intention of data theft. It would seem prudent to not post items today which won’t be collected until tomorrow or even the following day e.g. after Saturday collection and not collected before Monday. Why? You maybe sending information useful to those stealing identity – name, address, bank card information…. They are taking the post boxes for a reason.
We are now entering our second lockdown. We are mindful of the impact that this can impose upon some of our community, possibly resulting in dramatic changes to personal circumstances – be it health and/or financial difficulties. As a community, we shall continue to pull together, offering support and assistance.
We have the following support systems in place:
Community Care – collection and delivery of prescriptions/shopping to vulnerable or isolating households. Please contact Simon Hanagarth (07955885529) or Matt Neville (07753904304).
Community Food Share – Operated by a small team of volunteers who distribute food to those who require extra help during this pandemic. Please contact Stephenie Hillier (07720975023) or Debbie Woodliffe (07845437702). All inquiries and conversations are strictly confidential.
If you would like to donate food towards The Community Food Share there will be a collection box outside The Poppin, Long Marston and Londis, Meon Vale.
SDC has to have a reserve of available land for further housing development in case of a shortfall in the 5 year land supply.
