SCAM WARNING: Don’t buy from the back of vans!

Dear Watch Member,

We’re urging the public to be vigilant after a number of faulty goods were seized in Cannock.

Officers came to search the vehicle in relation to an unrelated matter on Tuesday 24 November while it was parked on the Beach Hut car park at the rear of Toby Carvery in Cannock.

They discovered 15 wrapped television sets which appeared to be new but upon further investigation were found to be old broken units.

It’s is suspected that these televisions were intended for sale from the rear of the van to unsuspecting members of the public.

Inquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible for the vehicle and its contents.

During this type of scam the seller will show the victim new fully working television set and sell the item at a dramatically reduced price. Once the sale is agreed the seller will present the purchaser with a pre-wrapped television. Only when the purchaser unwraps their new television they find an old broken worthless set, not the item shown to them.

If you’re offered any item for sale under suspicious circumstances please decline and report it to police.

We are fast approaching that special time of year when we are getting ready for Christmas. The children will be busy making Christmas cards and calendars and in our cookery sessions we will be making individual Christmas cakes, decorating them and of course making mince pies. Our Christmas party will be shared with all the children of Green Lea. I am sure a lovely time will be had on the 17th of December. All our pre-school children and staff will be going to see Jack and the Beanstalk at Stafford Gate House Theatre. The date is yet to be confirmed. When we return after our Christmas break, we will be looking at the weather and fingers crossed we might be able to make a snowman if the weather permits. Can all the pre-school staff and children take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

“Mother was a Bizarre Girl” was the title of Margaret Bull’s talk. Jesse was Margaret’s mother who was an Apprentice Painter and Enameller to Clarice Cliff in the 1930’s. Margaret, not only told members about her Mother’s life, a lady who was unaware of how priceless and precious her work would become, as well as Clarice Cliff who was born in 1899 in Tunstall being one of seven children. Clarice left school at thirteen when she went to the Burslem School of Art and progressed to being an apprentice Potter. By reason of her talent and ability she became a ceramic artist onto being the head of the head of the A.J. Wilkinson Pottery’s artistic department. Margaret brought samples of Clarice Cliff’s designs and a number of photographs of both her mother and Clarice Cliff, one special one was of her mother with Eric Knowles, the ceramic valuer who was a particular favourite of Jesse.

On November 7th, we held our postponed Race Night to raise money for the Annual Show expenses.  Everyone enjoyed themselves, especially my young granddaughter, who went home clutching her winnings and wearing a very smug expression.

Our Christmas Party is being planned for December 17th. Members are advised to buy their tickets ASAP to be sure of a seat.  Please ring Celia on 01889 505783.
