Late night caller-scam

Some residents have reported a man ringing their doors late at night (near midnight) asking for money to feed a gas/electricity meter. He says that he has a newborn child and works for a London hospital. 

The police have reported that this is without doubt a scam. The advice is that gas key meters will always have an emergency facility so the gas could wait until daytime.

Residents can call police down for incidents like this on 101 or 999 if you think it’s a matter of urgency.

If anyone has any images from their RING or CCTV please feel to share and I will forward to the police.

Also, the graffiti on the garage door outside Barnstaple House has been reported to the Council and should be removed shortly.

– Mick Delap reports from the Triangle

I watched for an hour on Sunday morning – the one reasonable bit of weather over the weekend. And saw 10 different kinds of birds. 7 of them were on the Triangle’s Top Ten list: Blue Tit, Great Tit, Feral Pigeon, Robin, Magpie, Ring-necked Parakeet, and Dunnock. Plus Goldfinch, Jay and Carrion Crow. By far the most common visitors over the hour were the Blue Tits. Certainly in my bit of the Triangle they proved to be by far the most common garden resident. It would be great to hear how others fared. Do please either post your results, or drop Mick an email with details. The Triangle Nature Watch group have plans for their own Garden Watch activities in the Spring and Autumn, and we need all the help we can get, so if you would like to be kept informed, let Mick know:
