It is really important to report all theft/attempted theft no matter how small. If a garden ornament disappears, or someone opens your car doors, PLEASE REPORT IT. The police don’t know that crime is happening on our estate if we don’t report it.

There is a lot of vehicle theft on our estates at the moment from insecure vehicles. We would like to remind residents the importance of ensuring that your vehicle is secure before you go to bed.
With the advent of colder weather, please do not leave your vehicle unattended while attempting to defrost its windscreen. If your vehicle disappears from your drive whilst it is performing this operation your insurance will NOT cover you.
In warmer weather (the British Summer!) if people go out, or are at work, could they make sure that they close windows and doors to stop any opportunist thieves that may be around.
