Brown Bins: Rother reopens Garden Waste Applications

Email from Rother Councillor Andrew Meir received today.

Dear Resident,

I’m delighted to tell you that Rother’s Garden Waste service – the brown bins – has reopened to new applications.
Residents can go to the website to order a new service or an additional bin –
It’s also worth signing up to Rother’s “My Alerts” scheme to receive occasional emails about local matters like this.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Good morning to you all. Please find below some useful information sent to me by one of my coordinators in Stonegate that you might find helpful.
Click on the links to find the info.
………………………………………………………………………….Hello Ted
How are you?
A couple of things I want to run by you.
I don’t know whether this information will be of help to your members but some thoughts regarding unwanted phone calls and scams.
♦ Lots of information here from Citizens Advice.

Stop getting nuisance calls and texts

Action to take to stop getting nuisance calls and text messages


♦ Telephone Preference Service  although this is not 100% reliable, especially against calls routed from overseas.

TPS

Telephone Preference Service.


Increasingly scammers are using either mobile numbers or a landline number shows, leading people to answer rather than ignore a withheld number.
♦ For people who have use of the internet, there are various sites where you can input the caller’s number and see if it’s been identified – you can then either warn others or just block it from calling you again.
This is the site I use.

Who called me? | Free Reverse Phone Lookup

Received a call from unknown phone number. Use this FREE reverse phone directory to find out who called you!


♦ There are also landline handsets which claim to block nuisance callers, but to be honest, these organisations change numbers so often they still get through.
Also, can I ask you to keep a particular look out for crime reports in the Ticehurst and Stonegate area please.
There is a white transit van with occupants described as ginger haired, slight build and a heavily tattooed hand, plus a younger guy with thick, dark hair and eyebrows. They are being seen a lot around here and it seems they’re either attempting break-ins or just casing the area, Wadhurst, Cousley Wood and possibly Heathfield too.

Please note this email sent to me the other day.
…………………………………………………………….On Wednesday this week my 84 year old mum received about a dozen silent phone calls from various numbers. Some started with 01392 01395 01398 but there were others too which she wrote down. Then later in the same day she got a call from a man saying he can stop all the nuisance calls she’s been receiving recently for a monthly fee and he tried to get her to give her credit card and bank details. Luckily she’s not that stupid and told him where to go but it left her really shaken up.

Protect your phone

 

Here you can find out how to protect yourself from being a victim of mobile theft and steps that will help if your phone is stolen.

Don’t leave your phone, iPad, tablet or camera unattended, out of your sight or left on a table – thieves can grab a phone from a table in seconds.

Always be aware of your mobile and your whereabouts and act accordingly. And when you’ve finished using it, put it away.

Ensure you retain a record of your phone’s IMEI number. This is a 15-digit unique number which can be obtained by keying in *#06#. You need this information if the phone is lost or stolen. And don’t keep a note of it on your phone as it defeats the object.

Use your device’s security features, apps or PIN locking mechanisms to protect your data and prevent the phone being used if stolen.

Immobilise it. Register for free on an accredited mobile phone database such as ImmobiliseExternal Link. This helps police to identify you as the rightful owner.

Track it. Consider installing a tracker app on your smartphone. They’re readily available online. If your mobile’s ever stolen, act promptly.………………………………………………………………………………

 

Secure your shed or garage

It’s strange how most people don’t secure their shed or garage in the same way they do their homes. People often end up using a flimsy lock or padlock to protect the contents – whether it’s a car, bike or lawnmower. The fact is, a burglar will usually try a shed or garage first because they can find the tools they need to get into the house.

Shed and outbuilding security: first steps

First off, check that your insurance covers the contents of your shed or outbuildings from theft.

Think like a thief

Take a look at your shed and consider how you would break in. It’s worth having a good padlock on the door with no exposed screws. Pay attention to hinges, as these are sometimes easily removable. If you have windows then these could be vulnerable unless they’re secured with wire mesh or grills. And always keep it locked .

Alarm it

Consider a battery-operated shed alarm. They look low key but they respond to movement or door contact with an extremely loud siren.

Lock it, hide it or mark it

Don’t give them the opportunity or the tools to commit a crime. Lock everything away securely. Tools can be locked inside a locker or box or secured with a chain.

Secure your bike to the ground or a lockable stand within a locked shed or garage. Visit Sold SecureExternal Link to search for ground anchors and other locks designed to fix to floors and walls.

It’s always worth draping an old sheet or blanket over the top of mowers or bikes to keep them covered from view.Invest in a garage door stop.

Although it might sound like stating the obvious, never leave your garage or shed door unlocked if you’re not around.

Property marking your items is advisable and some tools can be painted with your name or postcode. Forensic marking is also an option and you can register some items on the Immobilise website for free. For more information visit ImmobiliseExternal Link and our detailed page on property marking.

Mark your property to deter burglars | Sussex Police

Great tips on how to make your personal belongings less attractive to burglars plus actions you can take to make…

The top five most common items stolen from sheds

  1. Bikes
  2. Mowers
  3. Sports equipment
  4. Power tools
  5. Garden tools

There has been a rise in reported thefts from vehicles. Please remember to remove personal belongings and make sure you lock up securely when you leave your car.

M23 Roadworks – Update 27 September

Roadworks – Pett Road: 23 September – 2 October

Residents in Pett may have already received this notification from East Sussex Highways about roadworks and road closure to through traffic in Pett Road from 7pm-4am from Monday 23 September until Wednesday 2 October. Pett Parish Council has received no prior notice of these works. Apparently residents will be able to access their homes although ‘there may be delays’.

The map is not easy to read but it appears that the area affected is from the bottom of Chick Hill all the way up Pett Road/Friars Hill to the junction of Friars Hill and the A259 by the White Hart.

If any further information is received it will be published on Pett on the Net and the Pett Facebook page.

Leave a Light On

Don’t let burglars know you are not home.
Once it gets dark, make sure you leave a light on.
Stay secure – the nights are drawing in and autumn is now well and truly here.
Here are some home security tips – do you pass the burglary prevention test?

Daily security

Keep all wallets,  purses, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.

If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows.

An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars, seek advice to ensure it is the most suitable for your needs.

Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name.

Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler.

Register your property at www.immobilise.com

After dark

Leave some lights on if it will be dark before you get home.

When you go out in the evening, always leave a light on in a room that cannot be peered into from the road.

Fit security lighting – either dusk to dawn energy efficient lighting that will come on automatically as dusk sets in, or infrared activated lighting which draws attention to movement.

Front door security 

Don’t let anyone into your home that you don’t know. Always ask for identification – official visitors won’t mind being asked for ID.

Fit a door chain or bar, and if you have a solid front door, a wide angle door viewer.

In the garden

Ensure gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure.

Trim overgrown plants – don’t give burglars a hiding place.

Secure garden tools and ladders in a locked shed or garage to prevent them being used to break into your home.

The best defence  against burglary is prevention.

For more advice on crime prevention  visit www.sussex.police.uk

In an emergency, or if you see a crime in progress always dial 999.
