St James’ Church

Saturday family service

Dear all,

If you’ve been cooped up inside today because of the snow then do wander down to St James tomorrow morning for our monthly family service. We’ll put the heaters on nice and early and there will be plenty of hot drinks and biscuits!

In the church’s calendar we are actually marking the end of Christmas this weekend, so maybe we can all say we’ve had a white Christmas after all!

Hope to see some of you tomorrow.

Important message from Thames Valley Police

Advice to residents following multiple burglaries in Shrivenham area

Thames Valley Police has recently witnessed an increase in burglaries in the Shrivenham area. A large number of these burglaries have resulted in jewellery and cash being stolen.

We would like to remind residents to remain vigilant and consider keeping any valuables out of sight or in a safe. Additionally, CCTV acts as a major deterrent and greatly increases our chances of catching the offenders so please consider installing it.

You can reduce the risk of becoming a victim of burglary by taking a few simple security measures to make your property less attractive during the autumn and winter months:

  • When going out, remember to light up your home using timer switches or a TV simulator.
  • Don’t leave valuables or cash on display and store your house and car keys away from your letterbox.
  • Move bins away from any side gates to prevent easy access into your property.
  • Lock any tools away to prevent them being used to break into your home.
  • Consider fitting a motion activated external light and installing a CCTV system.
  • Finally, mark your valuables using a UV pen and register them on the national property register at www.immobilise.com.
  • Speak to your neighbours, look out for each other’s homes and think about setting up Neighbourhood Watch schemes.
  • Remain vigilant and report all suspicious people or vehicles by calling 101 or reporting it online at www.thamesvalley.police.uk
