Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
A VERY GOOD WEEKEND !
NO CARS BROKEN INTO
SUSPICIOUS PERSON IN THE EARLY HOURS:
There was one case of a man walking around, climbing over gates, walking up and down a drive and checking out a home. He may also have checked out your house. If you have a video doorbell / CCTV please check footage regularly and if you see anything suspicious – forward it to me.
Martin has responded to me as I have forwarded his footage to our local Neighbourhood Team, RBWM Community Wardens and our Burglary Team in case anyone can identify him:
I have to say, this guy looks over 50 and seems to have had a few drinks (he staggers a couple of times in the footage). Very strange behaviour. However - he must be agile to get over our gates.
Have a COVID-19 safe Ramadan
This Ramadan, keep your loved ones safe, by wearing your mask and keeping your distance when you’re out and about and washing your hands, as soon as you get home.
The COVID-19 vaccine doesn’t contain any animal products, and it will not break your fast, as it contains no nutritional value, so please take your first or second vaccine dose, when you are invited to do so.
I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage. If you have any that might be of interest to the police, can you please make contact with us, quoting reference number given.
I have added a new email address below. The first email address is directly to your local Neighbourhood Team. The second is to our investigation team. Please use it to send any intelligence / video doorbell / CCTV footage you may have, which is relevant to any of the crimes lists below - quoting the reference number.
Alternatively you can call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or email - www.crimestoppers-uk.org

No entry gained and nothing stolen. Ref. No: 43210162387. Do you live nearby and do you have a video doorbell / CCTV ? Even if you have not been a victim of crime, can you check your footage around this time to see if the man looked at your home ? He is described a white, grey hair, slim.
NO CRIME TO REPORT.
I have just received a text supposedly from the Halifax.
It says that they have successfully paired someone to my account !
If this was not done by me – could I please click on the link !
As I don't have a Halifax account, I have to presume it's a scam.
Pass this on in case anyone else gets a similar text.
Done – Many thanks Margaret.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit www.ourwatch.org.uk and enter your postcode.
For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at firstname.lastname@example.org
