Neighbourhood Watch

Police issued a safety advice today after a series of incidents where people are being distracted in cars parks and their bank cards stolen.  Incidents reported were in Harpenden, Bishop Stortford, Berkhampstead, Letchworth, Broxbourne and Rickmansworth.

In the majority of cases the victim was approached by a man or a couple in a car park. They tell the victim they have dropped £10. The offender then helps the victim put the money in their purse, stealing their bank card at the same time. In some cases the offender(s) distract the victim with a map, whilst they steal their wallet or purse. Sadly the majority of the victims are elderly losing hundreds of pounds.

Bericot Green – WGC Dowsers

WGC dowsers carrried out a successful preliminary survey on the site this morning Mon 05 Nov when they heard about the HCC planning application. Some residents have seen and spoke to them. We shall keep you posted when they post tangible findings.

Allsop Auction

The 3 lots of Sylvan Way verges and tree belt were sold last week at auction. The valiant efforts of Loraine and affected residents resulted in a temporary Tree Preservation Order (TPO) being imposed prior to the auction. The campaign will go on to prevent development on such strips of  lands. Email protectsylvanway@gmail.com or visit the forum http://projectsylvanway.freeforums.net/index.cgi . Such developments have ramifications for all in WGC & Hatfield not just Panshanger.
