Another word of warning …
This happened in Spratton two days ago – but could easily have been in (y)our village! A purse was stolen off a kitchen table during the day when someone entered via a rear door whilst the occupant was in the garden for just a matter of minutes. Probably the thief had had the house under close observation and chose the right moment to enter the house via an unlocked door.
Please remember to keep your doors and windows locked – okay, it's a sad situation, but you see the possible consequences ~ and this isn't the only incident of this nature recently.
In wishing everyone a happy and safe Christmas, clearly vigilance and security are important ingredients.
