As part of a South Hams crime prevention initiative, the Police in the South Hams area would like to take this opportunity to remind you all of the following. If you have a shed, garage or outbuilding make sure that all doors are left locked and secure, that there is adequate lighting and, if possible, use a shed alarm. It is also important to keep serial numbers of any identifiable equipment. These serial numbers can then be recorded on www.immobilise.com for added security. If you require any further advice please contact your neighbourhood policing team who can give information on how to keep homes, property and vehicles safe and secure. Thank you.

We are entering a further period where severe freezing road temperatures will persist across parts of the county from tomorrow, with road temperatures potentially falling to -8°C in places on Wednesday night.
No further significant rain or snow is likely during the period until possibly the weekend.
The last weekend showers will have left some runoff in places and therefore there is the potential for icy patches. Beware Stakes Road and Duke’s Mill, especially!
Overnight frosts are likely in many parts of the county and road temperatures will struggle to rise much above freezing during the day especially where there is shade.
The Meteogroup 2-5 day forecast is as follows:
2-5 day weather summary
On Tuesday afternoon, a few sunny spells but with bands of quite extensive cloud moving westwards. The chance of a light wintry shower, but most places will stay dry. Much colder air will move in from the east on Tuesday night with clear spells becoming widespread. Road Surface Temperatures (RSTs) falling well below zero with a risk of ice and hoar frost. High pressure will develop to the north-east of the UK on Wednesday, bringing a very cold easterly flow, with high pressure then settling over southern England on Thursday. Mostly dry, settled and very cold on Wednesday. Small chance of a coastal wintry shower in the south of Devon. Dry and very cold on Wednesday night with long clear spells and RSTs well below zero.

The following message has been received from Devon and Cornwall Community Police Messaging Service
Please see email below and do not open anything to do with Census ‘stuff’.
Statement from Director of the 2011 Census, Glen Watson, Friday 27 January 2012.
We are aware that an email entitled ‘Population Census: a message to everyone – act now‘ is being circulated, allegedly in the name of National Statistician, Jil Matheson. This email demands individuals provide further personal information, supposedly for the Census and threatens fines for non-compliance.
This email is a scam and a hoax. It has no connection whatsoever with the National Statistician, the 2011 Census or the Office for National Statistics.
We believe the links in the email could download malware to any computer where the user clicks on the links. This could put your personal data, including financial information, at risk.
Anyone receiving this, or similar emails, should delete them, not open any links and certainly not provide any information.
For more information on how to protect yourself from this type of threat, please see www.getsafeonline.org
If you wish to, please report receipt of any such suspicious emails to www.actionfraud.org.uk
ONS takes the protection of personal census information extremely seriously. Collection of census data was completed last year and no further requests will be forthcoming from the Office for National Statistics relating to the 2011 Census.

May Gurney, working on behalf of SWW, are proposing to close the road at the following location:
Length of road of 220 meters Bull Horn Cross, St Annes Chapel, Bigbury on Sea
Monday 23rd April – Friday 27th April 2012 in working hours.
If you require further information please call us on:
01726 224400 between 9:00am and 5.00pm (Mon-Fri)

Please accept out apologies for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your co-operation.
The parish has now taken delivery of 4 tonnes of salt for the treatment of PUBLIC roads to supplement DCC’s gritting of the main roads. In this parish DCC only grits the main road through St Ann’s Chapel to Bigbury on Sea. N.B. DCC should also keep the grit bins topped up.
I have arranged a network of volunteers from around the parish who will spring into action at the first sign of cold weather to spread salt/grit from DCC bags which have been distributed to strategic points on side/minor roads. Further bags have been left by the roadside wherever I know there has been a problem with snow and ice in the past. Please note: this salt is not intended for private use or re-sale!
If you are willing to help by looking after the road in your part of Bigbury, please let me know.
If you live in a part of the parish where the road has been susceptible to freezing over in previous winters, please let me know so that salt & grit can be provided where needed.
Let’s keep Bigbury moving!
