The number of people contacting me to request a FREE Fire Safety Check from the Fire Service, who also have some FREE Smoke Alarms to give away if they feel a house needs them, continues to grow. Villagers are taking advantage of this FREE offer, and I encourage you to do the same. This offer is still open so contact me if you would like to take advantage of the FREE Fire Service expertise to make your home safer. Please contact me if you wish to have a visit and I will get it arranged. DON'T MISS OUT ON HAVING YOUR HOME ASSESSED!

I have 2 SmartWater kits still available. These will go on a first come, first served basis! Please do not think that this is just a fancy name for marker pens. This is a high-tech solution that works to deter crime on two levels. First, thieves do not want to steal goods that have been marked. Second, dealers do not want to handle goods that have been marked. Finally, the success rate for returning marked goods to the owners is very high as the code of the SmartWater that you use is unique to you. House Insurance may replace stolen items, but it cannot return precious things!

We still need more Volunteers for Streets not yet covered. Please see the Village Web site for the full list of Street Representatives at
