Locals Foil Crime in the Act

On Thursday morning a couple of plucky locals caught someone in the act of dumping a caravan in Back Lane. At around 7am a 4x4 was seen towing the caravan into the lane by one of the locals. Not long after it appeared to get stuck. Alerted to this suspicious activity, the pair waited until the driver was distracted before making their approach. Thinking quickly, one parked across the entrance of lane whilst the other phoned the police.

The Church is Victim to more vandalism

The door of the shed was jemmied again, damaging the bolt and lock; total waste of time as there is absolutely nothing in the shed worth stealing.  The bird screen on the north door was forced open, fortunately only minor damage. A further small pane of glass has been broken to join the one broken a couple of weeks ago. Sad really.

Lead Theft from Church Roof

We discovered this morning at the Monday Morning Cafe that some lead had been removed from the roof over the servery area.  We believe it might have been around 4.30 to 5am as some noise was heard and a vehicle was heard in Islington at around 5.06am.

St Mary the Virgin Church a Victim of Crime

Some time between last Monday afternoon and Saturday night many kitchen tools were taken from the servery. This included knives, soup ladles, cake slices and a few other small items all amounting to about £130 worth .
