Just wanted to make local residents aware of a situation my daughter saw on our way home from the Charity Shop on Campion St the other day.

A young woman was seen looking through a dustbin on Stanley Street and removing two bags of rubbish.

The resident of the house must have seen something through the window and came out looking very puzzled as to why someone had taken her rubbish away.

Last year, we got a message from the Local Neighbourhood Officer, Ray Gibson regarding people who were looking through bins for letters with peoples names and addresses on.

Following this incident, it looks like it might be happening again, so please be careful what you put into your bin. Take your bin off the street if you can, make sure you shred any sensitive information, so that other people cannot use it for their own purposes.

Please pass this information on to your neighbours.

Thanks very much

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our supporters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and thank you all for your support over the past 12 months.

We are looking forward to the next year and all it may hold.

As you will know we are at present trying to raise funds to purchase a mini bus, to help us in our community. The Price of a brand new bus with access for a wheelchair is £30,000, so at almost £15,000 we are just about half way there.

However, we could buy a mini bus which has been sat on the forecourt for a year but never been used for just over £20,000, which means the goal of buying the mini bus is very much within our reach.

With that in mind we feel that with a bit of hard work, and your support we could actually be in a position to buy the mini bus within the next 12 months.
