NHW – Distraction burglary – Cantelupe Road

On Thurs 29th Oct just before 3pm, a vigilant NHW member had his suspicions aroused when he spotted an unknown man entering the premises of one of his neighbours. The man left the premises around 25mins later. However, the NHW member had the presence of mind to take a photo of the man. As it turns out this man had made a distraction burglary, after having offered the resident gardening services, the man had excused himself and taken the residents wallet. The police were called, the photo of the man is now on the Police FaceBook https://www.facebook.com/SouthCambsCops/ From the photo, the man appears to be middle aged with balding hair and of portly build. Wearing a cream coloured zipped jacket, with a black hood and black breast patch/pocket on the left. The jacket has a black zip fastening, with black zips to the waist pockets too. He wore blue jeans and black/navy trainers with white edged soles. The man is wearing a turquoise blue face mask. If you know this man or have any information please contact the police either by speaking to a web-chat operator on their website www.cambs.police.uk/report quoting 35/73674/20 or, if you don’t have access to a computer, by calling 101. Thank you, Teresa Harrold Haslingfield NHW Co-ordinator

A Letter about the East West Railway from a Resident of Haslingfield

Dear Fellow Villager,

East West Rail (EWR) is planning to build their railway through the rural villages of South Cambridgeshire from Cambourne to Great Shelford. This will irreversibly change the character and peace of local villages. Other route options would be more appropriate and less invasive but have been discarded by EWR without good reason. Time is running out for us to have our say. This requires us all to take action.
