3. Fraudsters send fake Virgin Media emails threatening “automatic disconnection”

Action Fraud has received over 100 reports about fake emails that purport to be from Virgin Media. The emails threaten the recipient with “automatic disconnection” due to “invalid billing information”. The links in the emails lead to genuine-looking phishing websites that are designed to steal your Virgin Media account login details.

Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.

Henstridge Meeting.
Avon & Somerset Police in partnership with Henstridge Parish Council are hosting a special community event, offering tips to stay safe on line, prevent fraud and keep safe at home.
7pm Wednesday 17th April at

If you are worried about nuisance calls, unsure how to keep safe using a computer, want to know how to stay safe in your home or if you have been the victim of crime, we are here to help.

Village Meeting


Wednesday, 3rd April, 2019 at 7.30pm in The Village Hall

Since the first Parish Meeting in North Cheriton was held on 4th December 1894 there has been an almost unbroken sequence of annual meetings. Your attendance at this meeting is important as it will allow you to air your concerns and perhaps offer to help on village matters to everyone’s benefit.

To all new residents of our peaceful village, we extend a warm welcome to this meeting. Throughout the year there are events that bring the village together and foster the British community spirit.  We hope you will be able to join us as this meeting to socialise with other residents and see what is going on in North Cheriton.  We also hope that longer standing residents who have not attended in recent years will come along as well to meet the newcomers.
