Message from police about lead thefts

Message from Inspector Gavin Drummond

Dear Parish Chairs and Clerks,Over the past few days we have seen an increase in rural churches being targeted whereby their lead roofs have been stripped and stolen. Specifically, we have seen offences across areas such as Ashby Magna, Theddingworth, Arnesby and Peatling Parva.I am well aware that other Churches have also been targeted in the past. We are focusing efforts in order to try and identify those that are committing these offences but we need your help in doing so. Please can I ask that you share this message with your local communities. We need to ask our local communities to be vigilant towards suspicious behaviour in and around Churches.We know that those wishing to steal the church metal will often have one of more vehicles with them as a way of transporting it away from the scene.If you see persons or vehicles acting suspiciously please call 101 and report it to the Police so that we can record and act on the information. We are particularly interested in:· Makes and models of vehicles · Vehicle registration numbers Numbers of people· Physical descriptions of those people acting suspiciously· Any noticeable accents from those acting suspiciously.· Direction of travelIf you witness the lead being stolen, then you must ring 999 so that we can respond as quickly as possible.Please be our eyes and ears in your community so that we can bring this atrocious crime to a stop.Should you wish to speak to your local officers about this, then you can find their details here:https://leics.police.uk/local-policingFor more information on preventing church metal theft, please see here:https://www.ecclesiastical.com/churchmatters/churchguidance/churchsecurity/theftofmetal/index.aspxThank you for your helpRegardsInspector Gavin Drummond

On 21st December, 2016, the Parish Council received an email from Lee Quincey, LCC stating the following:

Following confirmation of Centrebus's intention to withdraw the Leicester to Uppingham 747 bus service from 8th January 2017, both Leicestershire and Rutland County Council have been actively exploring options on how best to cater for local residents' essential needs.

Whilst clearly both Council's cannot be the long term provider of last resort subsidy in situations like this; having considered the options, the provision of emergency one off funding to maintain this route is believed to be the most sensible approach at this time. This will provide time for both authorities to fully consider the wider alternatives and in Leicestershire's case for it to be considered as part of its countywide accessibility policy review of rural bus services in 2017/18.

A joint Leicestershire and Rutland County Council one off emergency intervention payment to Centrebus is therefore proposed, which would keep the 747 running to its current level of service until January 2018.

We will, with our support, be looking for local communities and parishes served by the 747 to take the lead on working in partnership with Centrebus to secure the future commercial viability of the service when this one off funding contribution comes to an end.

At the current time there is no intention for either authority to fund this service beyond January 8th 2018.

We will write to parishes again soon with a suggested approach on how we can support and facilitate them working with Centrebus going forward.
