Message from Cllr N Cleaver, Battisford Parish Council Chairman:

Dear All, In light of the recent break-ins and attempted break-ins within the village and surrounding area, the Parish Council have received a number of disappointing reports whereby the Police have either refused to come out or shown a real lack of interest in the offences being reported, despite their alarming reoccurrence. We have had no visual police presence within the village over the last few weeks to act as a deterrent, we have had no correspondence from them about the clear pattern of criminal activity and no warnings. As a result, the Parish Council will be writing to the Police & Crime Commissioner (and others) to express the deep dissatisfaction in no uncertain terms. We have also arranged for a PCSO/Police Rep to come along to our next PC Meeting. In the meantime, those who wish to have their details/experiences included in our correspondence to the authorities should message me. Unfortunately, it appears two further break-ins have been reported within the last 48 hours and so I would urge everyone to keep their properties and outbuildings as secure as possible. Some of these break-ins have been facilitated by the use of secluded footpaths/set asides on the fields, so think about all of the possible access points to your properties and outbuildings. I've attached a link to the crime stoppers website advice on keeping safe/secure. I noticed just before the bins were collected a few big cardboard boxes left outside certain properties, one for a new Smart TV and one for a Hedgecutter. I realise this is insignificant to most, but to a burglar it is an advert for the things you have, and as such, things they can attempt to steal. Lastly, if you have elderly or vulnerable neighbours who aren't using the internet, be a real neighbour, knock their door, let them know about all of this. Nic
