    There are 3 messages for your information from Thames Valley Community Messageing:-

    During the last week there has been a spate of thefts from motor vehicles in the North Oxford area. Small items that have been left on display inside parked vehicles have been taken.
    Please remember to remove all valuable and attactive items from your vehicle when it is left unattended. If you are able please pass this advice on to your neighbours and friends.
    Many thanks for your time.


    The Home Office has compiled an information pack to help keep homes safe. You can order your pack by phoning 0800 456 1213 and quoting “burglary pack”. If you order this pack you will also receive a discount voucher for home security supplies from a major DIY retailer.
    Thank you for your time.


    The Home Office has announced that a National Domestic Burglary Awareness Day of action will take place on Tuesday 7th April. The Neighbourhood Specialist Officers and the Police Community Support Officers will be out in the community to offer information, they will also be handing out leaflets on Crime Prevention, and bike marking etc.
    The Three Top Tips from Neighbourhood Watch are;
    Never leave keys near a window or door (thieves are increasingly stealing car keys so they can take cars, often using a hook or magnet on a stick pushed through the letterbox).
    In just over one third (30%) of burglaries with entry, the thief gained access through an unlocked door or open window. Make sure doors and windows are locked particularly when leaving the house.
    Are often left unlocked and may be full of tools ideal for breaking into the rest of the house. Fit sheds and garages with strong padlocks. Always lock ladders in the garage or shed to stop a thief using them.

    We were recently visited by a community police officer to advise that a house on Hamilton Road was burgled recently. It is thought the burglar may have made his exit through a Victoria Road garden. Extra vigilance is suggested just now.

    Blazing Saddles!
    Just to let people in Victoria Road know that my bike saddle was set alight by vandals last week. It was blazing nicely when a builder next door put it out. Suggest you don’t park your bike within too-easy a reach of the pavement!
