Burglary and car theft in Weston-sub-edge

A burglary has taken place in the Weston-sub-Edge area.

On 19/01/21 burglars forced entry through a kitchen window, once inside the offenders took the keys to a high powered vehicle, which they have subsequently stolen.

Please remain vigilant. Burglars look for opportunities where the rewards outweigh the risks.

Reduce and take away their opportunities by making sure you think WIDE

W = Window Locks,
I = Indoor lights and timer switches
D= Double or deadbolts fitted to doors
E = Exterior Lights on a sensor.

Is your back garden secure? Install strong fencing and gates. Keep gates locked securely. Make it difficult to climb fences, by considering trellis and spiky plants.

Increase the visibility to your entrances & exits, stop the view being obstructed. Burglars don’t want to be seen.

Close & lock windows, burglars could reach in whilst you are in the next room. Ensure your most important valuables cannot be seen from outside, if left on view this can be tempting to a burglar. Including vehicle keys.

Sheds, Garages & garden items. Use and upgrade good gold standard locks. Consider installing alarms. Don’t leave wheelie bins out the front of your home, it offers burglars help to access your fence areas. Tools & heavy items, please put them away. Don’t give the burglar the opportunity to use as tools to enter your home.

Use forensic marking liquids on your property. Popular brands include SelectaDNA & SmartWater.

Install external CCTV or a digital doorbell. These devices capture evidence and can be circulated amongst Police Colleagues and the public.

Where available make use of the vehicle security available such as Trackers.

Please remember if you should see someone acting suspiciously in your area please report to police on 101.

In an emergency please call 999.

Road Safety – Speeding: Church Street and Stratford Road

In the last 12 months parishioners will have noticed the installation and commissioning of two vehicle activated speed indicators in the village: one on Stratford Road and one on Church Street.

The Parish Council has installed these as a measure to obtain data with the objective of reducing the incidence of speeding traffic through the village.

The facility to record and download data has been commissioned and the results for the two months, September and October have been analysed.

63.9% of the traffic was over the national speed limit of 30 MPH on Stratford Road and 63.0% was over the national speed limit on Church Street.

Discussions are ongoing with Gloucester County Highways Dept. and the Police as to measures available to further improve the situation.

Phone Box Book Exchange

The old telephone box in Church Street was purchased for the village to  use as a book exchange. Please feel free to make use of this but it should not be used as a dumping ground for unpopular books such as old text books, reference books and old jigsaw puzzles. If there is no room on the shelves please do not dump books on the floor but wait until there is space or recycle in the normal way.

Thanks for your help and support

Village Hall Update

Weston-sub-Edge Village Hall 

The Hall remains closed until further notice, except for exceptional hiring’s.

HM Government guidelines were received on 01 July 2020. (“COVID -19: Guidance for the safe use of multi- purpose community facilities” )

The Trustees are committed to reopening the Hall to hirers at the earliest opportunity.

However, having reviewed carefully the controls necessary to sustain a safe environment in the Hall and the constraints from the latest guidance the Trustees have reluctantly concluded that reopening safely within the current constraints is not practicable. 

N.B. The Village Bar is managed independently from the Main Hall and also remains closed except for takeaways (see Facebook page)
