Advice: Car Key Burglaries

Your latest Smart Alert.

We are reminding residents to be on their guard and to review home and vehicle security following a number of burglaries where offenders have targeted the property with a view to stealing the keys and vehicle at the property.

We would urge residents to ensure their property is secure at all times, including all doors and windows and that items of value and keys are stored away out of view.

Offenders often target properties with high value/high performance vehicles on the driveway however this is not always the case! If keys are visible through windows and doors then offenders will break in; take the keys and make off in the vehicle.

Let’s not make it easy for them!

If you have any information which could assist us with our enquiries, please contact us on 101 or anonymously via crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

For more home and vehicle security advice and information please visit the force website at www.staffordshire.police.uk/crimeprevention.

Fraud Alert: ‘Something for you’ Postal Delivery Cards

Your latest Smart Alert.

Residents are being warned about ‘something for you’ cards arriving through letterboxes designed to look like they have come from Royal Mail.

The cards which lack the Royal Mail logo look almost identical to the ‘something for you’ slips that are posted through homes when a delivery can’t be made.

To organise a redelivery the cards urge recipients to call a 0208 number, which is not registered to Royal Mail. After ringing the number the automated message asks for your details and consignment number.

Customers should check delivery cards very carefully to ensure they are geniune and remain vigilant. Although this card is similar to the Royal Mail card the Royal Mail logo is crucially missing.

Customers should consider whether they are expecting delivery. If in doubt, do not call the number provided, give your details or personal information and get in touch with Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Well it’s that time of year again when we all start to relax and enjoy our summer holidays, so Milwich Pre-School and Lollipops Wraparound Care would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the hard work and dedication from parents to grandparents, auntie and uncles, friends and the local community. Without your support we couldn’t run our small rural pre-school. A big thank you must also go to all the teachers at Green Lea School, who support and help us every day.

We hope everybody has a wonderful summer, and we are already planning lots of great things for the new school year, which will hopefully include a forest school session. So stay safe and we will see you in September.
