I have been asked to let you know that on Sunday 1st April at around 13.00 hour to 13.30 hour, a car in St Georges Car Park was broken into and the owner's handbag and other valuables were stolen. This could well a one off opportunist incident but taking into account the spate of shed and garages burglaries in the immediate vicinity, it could well be that we are experiencing an increase in the targeting vulnerable areas.
1 If anyone has any information about the above incident – if you saw anything suspicious at all, after church in the car park, then please contact The Community Police Officer or Fr William who will pass it on
2. DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES IN THE CAR - including Sat naves etc
3. For the time being I will be locking the church simply as a precautionary measure
I really don't think we need to over react to this but it is incumbent on us to take reasonable precautions
Ps please pass on to anyone you may know that does not have access email
