Lost – Small charm

 Lost in the North Cheriton/Maperton area, a small charm, about 1.5cms and comprises a hoop with three small discs hanging from it.  Two are silver and one is gold.
It’s a really long shot, but if anyone should find it I should be really grateful as it has considerable sentimental value.

Transforming the response to domestic abuse

Victims, communities and professionals across Avon and Somerset are being asked to share their views on the response to domestic abuse at every stage, from prevention through to rehabilitation, in order to help shape the way, together we respond to this crime.

A national review has been commissioned by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) and Home Office and is being supported by Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens who is asking local people have their say and use their knowledge to make a difference.

By consulting, the focus is to capture the victims’ voice and harness the expertise of charities, specialist organisations and professionals across policing, criminal justice, health, welfare, education and local authorities – making domestic abuse everybody’s business.

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “I have made protecting the most vulnerable from harm the top priority in my Police and Crime Plan, so very much welcome this government consultation on domestic abuse. The proposals from the government cover a wide range of issues, from awareness raising and support for victims, to the criminal justice experience and how we reduce reoffending. These are all areas that I am working on as PCC and as such I will be sharing my views as part of the consultation.”

“It is important we listen to as many voices and as much experience as possible and ensure this is captured in order to transform the response to domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is everyone’s business and it is vital that we work together to let victims know we are there for them when they need help and support.”

On 26 March, Ms Mountstevens has been invited to attend and speak at a regional Domestic Abuse Consultation Event in Exeter. The event will introduce a draft Domestic Abuse Bill and ask attendees for their suggestions in developing the programme of work.

The event, which in addition to the South West will be travelling to other locations across the country, will also provide discussion opportunities and forums to allow practitioners, professionals and victims to share their views and give feedback on the Government’s proposals.

The consultation will close on 31 May 2018 and will be followed by a formal Government response in the autumn.

Wednesday, 4th  April, 2018 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.

This year the Village Hall AGM will be held in a separate meeting, the date to be advised.

In summary, the Agenda will include Election of Chairman and Secretary, Gale Trust Report, Church Matters & Thomas Abbott Trust Report, Parish Council Report, Speed Watch Report, Neighbourhood Watch Report and Any Other Business.

W199 14032018 Bogus Callers

Once again police are asking members of the public to be alert when dealing with callers at the door, cold callers on the phone or by Email. Recent incidents include:

(a) Rogue traders calling at a property and informing the owner that they need to fix ridge tiles. The charge was to be over £900 for a job that was unnecessary. Fortunately a neighbour came out and stated they had called the police. The callers left the property.

(b) Calls and Emails have been received by members of the public that purport to be from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC). These either indicate that there is a tax refund available or that there is tax owed and that it needs to be paid in iTunes vouchers. Please be aware that this department will not telephone or contact by Email in this way and they will never ask for any refunds to be done in voucher form.

It is difficult to keep up with different types of scams but remember: if the offer is too good to be true then it probably is; if you need work or services then make your own enquiries to find firms to provide them; do not have dealings with callers at the door.

We have a limited number of leaflets giving advice about cold callers – contact Lindsey at the office for details – or use the following link to the police website for more advice.
