Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Our first new electric car has been stolen from Maidenhead - see below !  The thieves obviously stole it to order and knew how to open and start it as well as how to de-activate the computer tracker system !

NEXT: I circulated a request on Friday from Danielle Lane from Abri, re two projects she is running – One was a jobshop evening each Wednesday at the Pump Room, in Sawyers Close, Windsor.

The other was for Webinars to start your own business.  The webinars take place on TEAMS, which is a similar App to Zoom.  I was concerned that many of you not already working for an organisation, will ever have heard of TEAMS, let alone have downloaded the App.  I asked what anyone interested should do.

She has responded:

Thank you, Jeff

Teams is accessible through a web link if you have a link to a meeting and we have instructions from all devices that we can provide.
Hope this helps, happy to take lots of queries too 😊
Many Thanks

So, if you are interested and make contact with Danielle, she will send you the LINK.  The contact details were on the posters I attached to Friday’s message – but here they are again: – 0800 432 0570

NEXT:  Should you think about getting a Video Doorbell ?

I have received this from – another – Jeff, who is happy for me to share the link, showing the offender stealing his parcel – it is a little way into the clip
Hi Jeff
We have just had a package stolen from our doorstep and I have it on the video doorbell - I am out of the country at the moment.

I thought you might like to see the footage.

If you are considering getting one – there are many on the market and the choice may be confusing – so our Volunteer Video Doorbell volunteers have produced a website with the most frequently asked questions:

Valerie Pike – the Chair of the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association - will be very happy to assist further and refer you to a Guru, once you have visited the site:

NEXT:  We have received a report about someone perhaps holding themselves out – or purporting to be a solicitor and accepting legal work.

Before consulting a ‘solicitor’ you do not know, you can check their bona fides by making contact with the SRA – The Solicitors Regulation Authority

They have issued this Guidance:

Before engaging the services of any solicitor, I would encourage you to verify their credentials first. You can do so via the SRA Solicitors Register, which can be found here:, or The Law Society ‘Find a Solicitor’ service, here:

They also publish to a Scam alert section, which can be found here:


I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.
