The Lions Club of Windsor
Windsor: Monday 28th January 2019
Its ‘Boom Boom’ from the pantomime cast, to keep the Heart of Windsor, Beating.
The cast from the acclaimed Royal Windsor Theatre Pantomime Dick Whittington - proudly showed off the potentially life-saving Defibrillator, installed recently, on the Theatre Royal’s premises.
The defibrillator, is supplied by the Windsor Community Defibrillator Partnership, whose objective is to raise funds for these devices.  This Defibrillator, is one of nine now dotted around Windsor Town Centre.
The Windsor based group, comprises representatives from Windsor and Eton Rotary Club, Windsor Street Angels, Thames Valley Police, Windsor Town Centre Management and Windsor Lions.
Defibrillators, are life-saving devices which, if used within 3 minutes of a cardiac arrest, give a 70% chance of survival.  Without one, after 10 minutes, the chances of survival, are minimal.  This highlights just how vitally important the Partnership’s work is, to the local community’s safety.  
Chris Davies of Windsor Rotary and a member of WCDP enthused ‘The great thing about these devices, is that anyone can use them – no training is required, and no harm can be done by using them.  ‘All you have to do is dial 999 and the emergency services, will advise you where the nearest defibrillator is and give all the necessary guidance’.
Leigh Humphrey, the Manager of the Theatre Royal comments “I understand the chances of survival increase significantly, with the early use of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and defibrillation. We are delighted to ‘host’ a defibrillator on our premises and fully support the great work carried out by the WCDP’.

It is important everyone knows that these devices are available in the town centre, in case of immediate need.  They will not discharge, if the device establishes a heartbeat, even if it is undetectable to you - it is a brilliant safeguard.  When out and about in Windsor, keep your eyes open for them in the Town Centre
NEXT: Hello Jeff
I know you like to be made aware when we undertake joint operations, relating to underage sales, hence this email to you, and your onward inclusion in the Alert, if you see fit.
Last night, (Thursday 24th January) jointly with TVP Officers, Trading Standards officers, conducted an underage sales operation, to tie in with the week of action, related to ‘knife crime’.  We were assisted by volunteer Police Cadets, aged 14 to 17, who, following a detailed briefing, acted as agents for us.
We tested 10 shops in Maidenhead and surrounding areas. Two shops sold to the volunteer underage agents, one, an independently owned discount store in the town centre, and the other, is a household retailer, part of a national chain.
We are taking follow-up action now against the individuals, who sold the knives and the companies they work for.
Kind regards

Excellent work Rob !

Dear Jeffrey
Just to let you know for the next bulletin, a member of my staff was caught out by a DVLA scam email, offering her a refund of her DD payments. She knew something was not right, but filled out the form with all her bank details and emailed it back.
Then had a second thought and checked the DVLA website and realised what she had done. She quickly transferred all her money from that account to another one, so lost nothing financially, except the inconvenience of having to wait for a new card.
However, she then made it potentially worse by sending them an angry text message !
I explained that often the emails are randomly selected by a computer, not a personal target, but now she has sent them her mobile number, which proves that they have now contacted a real person.
So a warning to all – do the necessary to make yourself and your accounts safe, but don’t do anything else, however tempting it is!!
As I keep saying, we have instincts for a reason !  If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.  Listen, to that nagging doubt.
Many thanks Miriam - I could not have put it better - myself !

Hi Jeff
A Sextortion Scam, received by my wife !
It is the usual, you don’t know me.
I hacked your computer some months ago and installed malware on certain porn sites.
Whe you went to one of these sites, it automatically started to record both you and the site you were watching - etc. etc. 
Apparently $450 in Bitcoins, is a reasonable price for preventing them sending the footage they have to everyone in your personal address book !
They then include a long code of letters and numbers, for their Bitcoin Wallet, for the payment.  The time limit has shortened, it used to be 12 days, but is now 48 hours.
The 101 number is still functioning properly, but I am afraid it may be slow to answer at the moment - if you are experiencing delays, you can always make contact with us using the online reporting system:
