As is too often the case during the Summer months, the local police are reporting break-ins in the Chew Valley.
Residents are advised to make sure their sheds and out-houses are secure and that windows are closed, particularly after hot days. If you have valuable items in a shed or garage and cannot remove them, chain them together or to something secure in the shed. It is a good idea to photograph bikes etc..
If you see anything suspicious particularly late at night do ring the police. Try to get details, registrations and descriptions. Use 999 for urgent matters and 101 for non urgent calls.
Please let neighbours and friends know as well.
