Does anyone know what is happening here? Is it a midair crash or a robin attack? John F-S

Please note that Evie’s artistic gatherings at the village hall have been re-scheduled from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm on Thursdays.

There is still plenty of room to join Santa’s little helpers, all beavering away merrily. Cookies, coffee and conversation.

If you are unsure of what you would like to do, there is plenty of advice on hand. See you there.

Policing Priorities

We Want Your Concerns

The Derbyshire Alert community messaging service gives you the opportunity to contribute to the setting of priorities in your neighbourhood.
As you may be aware, each of our Safer Neighbourhood policing teams holds a meeting every three months to set priorities, offering the public the opportunity to select what their local police officers and other agencies target. The aim of our e-forum is to make it easier for you to have a say on priorities.

Simply reply by email to trisha.mellor.5197@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk and tell us what you would like your team to target. Your concerns will be sent to the Tissington and Carsington area Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and they will discuss all responses at their next forum meeting which will be held on:
Wednesday 5th December starting at 7.30pm at Carsington School, Carsington.

Each team works in partnership with local agencies, which include parish, town, district and county councils, housing Associations, Derbyshire Youth Service, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service, Neighbourhood Watch among others, to help keep your area a safe, clean and pleasant place to live and work.
Priorities can include a wide variety of issues, including crime, anti-social or nuisance behaviour, graffiti or vandalism or anything which you feel impacts on the quality of life for you, your neighbours or your business.

You are still more than welcome to attend the meeting if you would prefer to speak to officers in person or you can also call our non emergency telephone number, 101.

You can be reassured that we will listen to your concerns, act on them and maintain our commitment to provide a high quality policing service to everyone in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales.

PC Virus Scam

Derbyshire County Council’s Trading Standards Service has received reports from consumers who have received a ‘pop-up’ type message on their home computer screen informing them their computer has a virus, and that it may be removed for a fee of £75.

To appear more official, the message purports to be from the Police Central E-Crime Unit, PO Box 36451, London EC2M 4WN.

This is untrue, as the Police would not contact members of the public regarding any potential computer issue nor would they contact them in this manner.

Do not respond to the message and if possible, delete the message.  Please do not attempt to forward it to anyone else as this may spread the problem to more computers.

Unfortunately, the ‘pop-up’ message has potential to lock and freeze your computer.  Derbyshire Trading Standards Service would advise that if this happens, you seek professional help and advice in order to repair your computer.

If you receive the ‘pop-up’ message above, or similar, please notify Action Fraud – a central point of contact for information about fraud and financially-motivated internet crime. Their telephone number is 0300 123 2040.

Good afternoon from windswept and rain-battered Parwich. It’s a good day for snuggling down with a bottle of Baileys Irish Cream, a tin of Quality Street and rattling off those Christmas cards. Bah Humbug!

LONDON: Rihanna, well known for her outrageously revealing stage outfits, has caused controversy with her latest fashion choice: a turquoise top, extravagantly adorned with myriads of ostrich feathers. Animal rights groups suspect that the feathers may have been gathered cruelly. We asked Rihanna for a comment, but she ran off at great speed. When we finally caught up with her, she stuck her head in the sand and refused to come out and speak to us.

Weather Stats: 18th to 24th Nov

Our ‘Weatherman in the Village’ says:

I now have a little more sympathy for the hapless weather person trying to offer long range forecasts. If you recall I predicted Wednesday last week would offer us a small ridge of high pressure and a respite from the constant barrage of low pressure Atlantic fronts which are rattling through at the moment, dominating our weather. Well, the lull did happen, but about 6 hours later than predicted, giving an oasis of settled weather when people would have least noticed on Wednesday. The rest of the Wednesday was horrible and the week as a whole was pretty wet with over two inches of rain over the week.

The unsettled conditions continue, with a brief blustery respite today, but a return to wet and windy conditions later and into Monday. The current stormy conditions will prevail next week. We may experience the odd lull in the wind and rain. In the longer term there is a suggestion of some colder weather to come toward the end of next week.

The following Christmas parking concession has been announced by DDDC. It takes effect from 1st December.

“Free parking from 2pm throughout December comes on top of residents’ parking concessions which allow local people to park free every day of the year up to 11am and after 4pm. So, over the Christmas period, Dales residents have free parking for 21 hours each day (before 11am and after 2pm).  The aim is to help local people and local traders.”

Free parking extends to midnight each day and motorists are reminded not to leave anything valuable in their vehicles as the lead up to Christmas can also be a choice time for thieves.

Paul B’s Weedkiller Weekly #6

Good Morning. I am sure you will all join me in commiserating with our National Treasure Lord Prescott, who managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in his quest to become Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside. To add insult to injury, he was pipped at the post by a relatively unknown Tory toff. Lady Prescott said “John was especially disappointed at the result, as he had heard that the chips at the Humberside Police headquarters canteen were vastly superior to ones at the House of Lords restaurant.“

Weather Stats: 11th to 17th November

Our ‘Weatherman in the Village’ says:

The unsettled weather returned for the working week as forecast – I’m beginning to like this new established pattern – great weekends and wet and windy weeks – it doesn’t make dragging yourself to work on dark mornings feel so bad! The temperatures through the week were pretty mild. Last night was a good hard frost, and the rest of today (Sunday) looks settled and fine.

We will again return to unsettled weather early next week with rain and mild temperatures returning on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday looks like being the best day of the week at the moment.
