As part of the ‘Spring into Action’ burglary campaign, TVP has produced a new Home Security Booklet. I had attached an image containing a hyperlink in my last messages, but because I can no longer include images in messages, it failed to attach - so here is the actual link
I went to Brunel Uni yesterday, to discuss the ‘Give and take Care’ Volunteer Bank project, with other partners and organisations. We received a full explanation of how the project works in Europe and how the group would like to introduce it to RBWM. For those people who unofficially ‘volunteer’ - carers, drivers etc. The group will prepare role profiles which I will circulate, next week. This way, people who volunteer in their communities - helping others - can be recognised, for the brilliant work they do. The group hope to work with local businesses to develop a discount card.
Generally, volunteers do not need recognition for what they do, many do not even claim expenses, but we, as a community, need to recognise the enormous contribution they make and thank them. Long term carers for example, often suffer financially and have little time to carry out essential tasks. The volunteer bank, would be a way of connecting with other volunteers reaching out to them to say - don’t worry about your garden, I know you won’t have time to mow the lawn and make it look good, I love gardening, but don’t have one of my own and would love to come and help you with yours and take that worry off your shoulders.
Let’s see how we go. We are at the very initial stages. If you are part of a group that would like to be involved, please let me know. We are creating an Exec group of ‘doers’.
On Wednesday I presented to the ‘U3A’ - Windsor University of the Third Age - a fantastic and vibrant group, with dozens of very varied interest groups. More information go to https://u3asites.org.uk/windsor/groups I delivered my Crime Prevention / Scams / Frauds talk. A brilliant audience, really good insight and questions. That always makes it a pleasure.
ETON & ETON WICK: NO CRIME TO REPORT WINDSOR WEST firstname.lastname@example.org CLEWER, DEDWORTH & OAKLEY GREEN:
10/4 10/4 Wednesday 12.30 p.m. / 4.15 p.m. St Andrews Crescent. Burglary Entry via rear patio doors, which have a faulty lock and may have been left INSECURE. Untidy search of the whole house. Two watches ( a Mercedes limited edition watch and a Tag Heuer) and cash stolen from one bedroom, keys and a deep midnight blue, Mercedes C299 index OV ** OGL stolen from outside. It the U3A meeting, people asked if dogs are a good burglary deterrent. In this house, there was a jack Russell and Schnauzer, left loose to roam. Normally, small yappy dogs are a good deterrent, large friendly dogs not so much. What really works as the best prevention tool - is a burglar alarm - or if you cannot afford one - a dummy box !
11/4 Thursday 1.25 p.m. Rec, Dedworth Road. The aggrieved were sitting on a bench in the park. 2 young men came up and asked for a lighter, then grabbed 2 bikes and rode off. 1. An orange with white stripes, Specialized hard Rock bike. 2. A black with silver lines, Ridgeback bike. The 2 offenders are described as: 1.
