This is a message from Moreton in Marsh local policing team.
Yesterday we had a report from a 92 year old Moreton resident who had been contacted on the telephone by a company called ‘Crime Awareness Campaign’. They appeared to want to sell this resident an alarm and made an unwanted appointment to attend his address. We have researched this company and it appears to be a scam. Please advise your members, especially the older, more vulnerable ones, that if they should receive such a call then to hang up the phone straight away.
Quite often these companies will say they are working on behalf of the police and this is not the case, it is simply a ruse to gain trust. If they do end up making an appointment advise them to either ask a family member or trusted neighbour to be present at the relevant time and to contact the police on 101.

Little Rissington Parish Council
802 BUS SERVICE
We have been informed by Pulhams that it is likely they will not be able to provide the normal 802 bus service in Little Rissington from Thursday May 16th when the Rissington road will be closed from the Great Rissington turn down to Bourton on the water. This will continue whilst the resurfacing takes place.
For more information please contact Pulhams on 820369
Rissington Road is due to be closed between 16th and 24th May 2013. The closures are for resurfacing and patching works. Gloucestershire Highways have confirmed that the work will finish on May 24th before the holiday weekend and half term in order to reduce the impact on tourist trade in Bourton. Any outstanding work will be completed at a later date.

There have been a number of reported incidents of fouling within the village. This is an offence and an issue taken seriously by Cotswold District Council.

The Traffic Action Group was set up in August 2010 as an advisory committee to the Parish Council as a result of concern about current problems with traffic in the village and worries about the increase in traffic when the development at Upper Rissington takes place.
TAG collects evidence about traffic problems such as lorries ignoring the weight restrictions, speeding and careless driving, and reports these to the appropriate body or company. It also makes suggestions to the Parish Council as to how these problems might be mitigated or resolved.
In this area you will find minutes of meetings, reports from TAG, latest news and how you can help.
