Subject: Church roof lead theft

Late evening or early morning of 24th/25th May there was a theft of roof lead from St.Mary, Grafton Regis. The church has an alarm system and Smartwater on the lead roof, notices are up around the building people informing people of these systems. The alarm was not triggered and it was a neighbour who noticed the curled up lead from her house window who raised the alarm. Because of the distortion of the lead we do not know if any is missing.

It would appear that the thief/thieves left the job half done, whether they were disturbed or found they could not remove any more lead without being detected by the PIRs’ we do not know.

The incident has been reported to the police and the Security company are sending investigators to the church to interrogate the alarm control system.

Jean Glanville, Churchwarden

Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)

Smishing – the term used for SMS phishing – is an activity which enables criminals to steal victims’ money or identity, or both, as a result of a response to a text message. Smishing uses your mobile phone (either a smartphone or traditional non-internet connected handset) to manipulate innocent people into taking various actions which can lead to being defrauded.
The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has received information that fraudsters are targeting victims via text message, purporting to be from their credit card provider, stating a transaction has been approved on their credit card.
The text message further states to confirm if the transaction is genuine by replying ‘Y’ for Yes or ‘N’ for No. 
Through this method the fraudster would receive confirmation of the victim’s active telephone number and would be able to engage further by asking for the victim’s credit card details, CVV number (the three digits on the back of your bank card) and/or other personal information.
Protect yourself:

  • Always check the validity of the text message by contacting your credit card provider through the number provided at the back of the card or on the credit card/bank statement.
  • Beware of cold calls purporting to be from banks and/or credit card providers.
  • If the phone call from the bank seems suspicious, hang up the phone and wait for 10 minutes before calling the bank back. Again, refer to the number at the back of the card or on the bank statement in order to contact your bank.
  • If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, please report it to Action Fraud athttp://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ or alternatively by calling 0300 123 2040

Suspicious Circumstances

Maidford – on Monday a white van similar to a citroen berlingo was seen at a farm leaving the driveway, it met with a bigger white van at the end of the drive and they were honking their horn as if to warn each other. No registrations. Have you had anything similar happen this week? If so please let me know as I am after the registration numbers.


Please keep an eye on our rural farm shops and businesses across the area and if during closing hours you see any suspicious activity please report it at the time so that police can be deployed to check what is happening. If you see torch light from within the perimeter or a vehicle parked up beside it we want to know about it incase a crime is being committed.

If you have any information regarding any of the above please get in touch with me, I will be back on duty on Tuesday.

Kind Regards
