OPERATION SHIELD

Most Farndon residents will have now received their DNA security marking kit from either Sgt Gigg or PCSO Hurst.

If you are one of the 70 households who have not yet received your kit, Sgt Gigg and PCSO Hurst hope to catch up with you in early October.

For those of you who are already in receipt of property marking kits, if you haven’t already done so, please take the opportunity to mark your property as soon as possible, and also place deterrent stickers in your windows to warn thieves to be aware.

The Parish Council is pleased to be able to provide this fantastic property marking equipment to every Farndon household and would like to thank Cllr Howard Greenwood for his financial contribution from the Ward Fund, also a very generous donation from the Barnston Estate and from Sanctuary Housing.

If you have any queries regarding the above please don’t hesitate to contact the clerk to the Parish Council on 01829 272372 or 07943 479468 or farndonparishclerk@gmail.com

OTHER ADVICE FROM OUR LOCAL SERGEANT

The Parish Council has been asked to report to residents that some calls made using the 101 reporting number are going unanswered and therefore unreported. If this happens then the emergency 999 number may be used.

CAR PARKING IN FARNDON

Please be aware that it is an offence to cause an obstruction to either the highway or to pedestrians using the pavement – there should be sufficient room for a wheelchair user or a pram to remain on the pavement without having to move onto either the grass verge or into the road.

There is a free car park behind the War Memorial Hall which may be used at any time and is only a short walk from the Doctor’s surgery and the local services on the High Street.

Recently, there have been problems with parking outside the Doctor’s surgery and also near the school. Please can all residents be courteous to their neighbours and make sure that they park legally and safely, leaving roads free from obstructions.

Many thanks for your co-operation in this matter.
