Scam Alert: Fake NHS Covid 19 Vaccine Text Message
A Member of the Neighbourhood Watch has signed up for the newly introduced ‘Which Conversation Scam Alerts’. The Member has shared the first Alert with us. This reports a dangerous fake NHS text that is now circulating, telling people they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. You should check this post out, it is a particularly well timed scam, convincingly presented and will doubtless spawn a number of similar scams. A screen copy of the text and website page for this particular attempt is included in the post on the website.

Somewhere in the meadow there is a reminder of past times – a long, unlovely strip of concrete that runs parallel to much of the long top wall but which thankfully is hidden from view behind the main shrub bed. Someone years ago must have toiled long and hard to install the concrete strip. But why? And what was it used for, when finished? To stack hay? To park the tractor? It’s remained a puzzle until very recently when a long-standing village resident wa asked if he knew the answer. And he did. ‘A henhouse was there’ he said, ‘I remember it well.’
Sutton Meadows, well worth a visit if only to sit and ponder, social distancing adhered to of course!

The next review will take place in mid-February, but any relaxation of the rules is likely to be slow and cautious. So, don’t expect any sort of normal life for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, please continue to keep an eye on the various guidelines and restrictions below.
