Contact details for volunteer services who help to take older people to the shops

Cllr. Misan McFarland reported that “01386 554 299 is a telephone number of the volunteer services I saw yesterday taking some older people shopping. I spoke to the ladies and they said the bus brings them to the Co-op then collects them later and the shopping is delivered by the Co-op to their homes!

Hope this helps with your investigation of transportation for shopping for villagers without cars. ”

Regards Misan Mcfarland Councillor

We don’t Buy Crime

We Don’t Buy Crime

We Don’t Buy Crime is a West Mercia Police initiative to reduce and disrupt the market for stolen goods and to protect your home and possessions by making them less attractive to the would-be criminal. The police are working with a local business, SmartWater, to make use of the latest technologies to fight crime. Wyre Piddle has become a ‘We Don’t Buy Crime’ village, where every residential property has the opportunity to mark their possessions with SmartWater free of charge. Several events have been arranged for the distribution of Smartwater kits. These new Smartwater kits are unique to each household and provide an easy-to-apply unique forensic coding system for your valuables. Items that are marked can be returned to you if recovered. Almost anything can be marked including cars, boats, caravans, jewellery, paintings, personal items, electrical goods, gardening and power tools. The photos show Timothy Williams from West Mercia Police putting up signs at the main entry points to the village accompanied by Cllrs Misan McFarland and Jenny wilks. If you have not yet claimed your free kit please contact Misan McFarland by email or by phone on 07930 332363
