Village Hall Storage Room

Due to the new housing development which will give us St Peter’s Close between the village hall and The Old Rectory we will be needing a new storage room/toilet block at the side of the village hall next to the playground.

We have had to submit a planning application for the new block the details of which can be found on the Shropshire Planning Portal

There are 21 days for the consultation and it would be good for local people to respond. You can do this by registering with an e-mail address and password it’s very straightforward. Of course we welcome all views but a positive comment is always appreciated.

St.Peter’s Church

There is no service for the 26th April @ St. Peter’s

United Benefice Service @ Moreton Say 11.00 am

Evening Worship @ Moreton Say 6.30pm

All are welcome

Important Alert from Neighbourhood Watch

Fraudsters have set up a bogus website claiming to be the official site of National Savings & Investments (NS&I) and are contacting members of the public, cold calling them and offering them the chance to invest in 65+ Bonds (also known as Pensioner Bonds).

Members of the public who are searching for the official website (for example on search engines) may be directed to the fake one which then asks them to supply contact information.

Victims are then receiving a follow up e-mail and/or phone call from the fraudsters who are requesting evidence of identity documents and bank account details either over the phone or by sending the victims fake forms to fill out. A common name that appears on the emails sent by the fraudsters is ‘Kevin Archer’.

Avoid being a victim of fraud:

  • Do not pass personal or banking information to companies that cold call you.
  • Please note that the only domain name (website address) that is legitimate is www.nsandi.com
  • National Savings & Investments (NS&I) do not make sales calls to potential customers (cold calls) so do not enter into discussion with cold callers claiming to be NS&I.
  • The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau is committed to tackling all types of fraud and the Cyber Prevention and Disruption Team aims to do this by disrupting and taking down fake and fraudulent websites.
  • If you have been a victim of fraud or suspect a company of fraud please contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or via the online reporting tool at www.actionfraud.police.uk
