Parish Council Report May 2013

Police Report

There were two reported crimes in April: one theft from a vehicle parked in the Three Crowns car park and one theft of a vehicle from Woodlands Close. The anti-theft number plate screw initiative held at Prestwold on 13th April was a success with a large number of people attending. The Police intend to hold another similar event on 8th June at the Coop car park in Barrow-upon-Soar, so if you missed the first event there is still another opportunity to attend on 8th June.
