Burglar Alarms – a note from your Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator

A note from Susan Awcock, our Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator:

The holiday season is here, and many of us will be heading off for a well-earned break. One of the best things about living in Morcott is knowing that good neighbours will keep an eye on things while we’re away. But before you pack your case, set the burglar alarm and lock up, please think about leaving one of your neighbours with:

  1. A spare key
  2. The alarm/disarm code
  3. Your mobile phone number

Because if your alarm does go off (accidentally) while you’re away, a neighbour would much rather take a few minutes to go in, check all is well and re-set … than have to listen to that alarm ringing out for hours on end and be unable to do anything about it.

Happy Holiday!

Volunteers needed at Barrowden’s Community Shop

The website admin has been asked to post this notice on behalf of The Shop in Barrowden, which is seeking fresh volunteers.

Do you use the Barrowden & Wakerley Community Shop? Did you know that it is run by Volunteers from the local community – not just from Barrowden?

Would you have an hour or two each week to join the team at the shop – behind the till or in the café?  Perhaps you are retired, new to the area, looking for a new challenge, children just about to start school or leave home?

We would be very happy to see you – full training and support will be given along with a warm welcome and a big smile.

For further details, a chat and a coffee please pop in and speak to David, the manager or ring him on 01572 748748.  We look forward to seeing you!
