Protect Yourself from Bogus Callers

20th March 2018 

From the Histon Neighbourhood Team, South Cambs Police:

Although many people who call at your home will be genuine there are incidents when people pretend to be from a water company or another organisation, just so they can enter your home under false pretences and steal money or valuables.
Often termed ‘bogus callers’ perpetrators are highly organised, work alone or in pairs, and operate under a number of guises such as utility company staff (water, gas, electricity, etc), builders and gardeners, door to door sales people, and even council staff or police officers.

Somebody at the door?

Ask yourself:

  • Am I expecting anyone?
  • Are my doors and windows secure

Always check back doors and windows are secure and locked, before you go to answer the front door.

Ask them

  • What are you here for?
  • Can I see your I.D. please?
  • Do you have any paperwork relating to your call?

Always use a spy hole or look through a side window to check who is there.

Chain
If you decide to open the door, put your door-chain or door-bar on first and keep it on while you talk to the person on the doorstep.

In cases where an offender failed to gain entry to a potential victim’s home, this was due to the occupant using their door-chain / spy-hole or quickly shutting the door.

Not sure?
Ring the company they claim to be from independently. Never ring the number they give you, look it up in the phonebook or ring directory enquiries.
You can ask them to wait outside while you contact a friend or neighbour to join you and supervise the visit.
If you are not sure they are legitimate or feel suspicious, don’t let them in, and call the police.

Protect your home
Never leave a door or window insecure because you are expecting a friend or carer to arrive.
If you have a shared entrance never buzz open the door for strangers or hold the door open for someone who arrives as you leave the building.

Legitimate callers
Genuine callers will carry ID and relevant paperwork. Most will wait patiently and be willing to answer any questions about their visit. It is good practice among many organisations to call ahead and make an appointment beforehand rather than turn up on your doorstep unannounced.

When to call the Police

  • If you are suspicious or feel that the caller may be bogus.
  • If someone forces entry or enters your home without permission.
  • You notice valuables or money missing shortly after someone has visited.
  • Whenever you think a crime has been, or is about to be committed.

NHS Dental Provision for Cambridgeshire

7th March 2018 

Please see below the following message from County Councillor Hudson:

At the last Parish Council, I stated that I had instigated a call in for NHS (England) regarding Dental Provision for new communities within Cambridgeshire, and that I would let you know when they are appearing so that you may attend if you wish.  Well, they are due to appear on Thursday 15th March 1330hrs  at Shire Hall.  This is a public meeting so all are welcome.

Anyone can ask questions at the begining of the meeting.  Therefore, If you want to raise the issue of dental provision for Northstowe you have to submit your question to Democratic Services by Monday 12th March.  You will then be called forward to ask your question at the meeting.   The time limit is three minutes.

Please let me know if you need any help with submitting questions etc,  as time is a bit short.

Advanced Warning – Closure of Bar Hill Bridge

6th March 2018

Longstanton Parish Council have been advised that the Bar Hill Bridge (over the A14) will be closed for 7 days from 3rd April 2018.  Please see the information below received from Cambridgeshire County Council which covers the Hattons Road closure this weekend:

Highways England are proposing to complete works for the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement Scheme. They are building a temporary junction at Bar Hill which will then enable them to build the permanent junction (roundabout and bridge).

The first stage of the works is to start works on the tie ins on Hattons Road, Longstanton. These works will need to be completed with a weekend closure of Hattons Road. Highways England unfortunately had to cancel the works last weekend therefore they will now take place 20:00hrs 9th March 2018 to 05:00hrs 12th March 2018.

The second stage of the works will involve a 7 day closure Monday to Sunday of the bridge from the Crafts Way/Saxon Way roundabout and over the A14 (roundabout will be fully operational). The closure is required as they need to complete a full formation dig.  No vehicles including emergency vehicles will be able to go through the closure. Works are expected to start 3rd April 2018 for 7 days.

The third stage of the works is to complete the tie ins on Hattons Road, Longstanton which can be completed using 2 way temporary traffic signals dates to be completed.
